Game Recaps

Jaden Schwartz scored a goal versus the Devils Tuesday. The goal was his 19th of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Schwartz actually had a down regular season in 2018-19 with 36 points. He had topped 50 points in four of the previous five seasons. Schwartz is a solid option but not elite.


Sammy Blais recorded an assist versus New Jersey Tuesday. The Blues would win 3-0.

Fantasy Impact: Blais had not been much of a fantasy option in the past, especially for a winger. Keep an eye on him in the future as he was producing early this season.


Oskar Sundqvist recorded an assist Tuesday versus the Devils. St Louis would win 3-0.

Fantasy Impact: 2018-19 was Sundqvist's first season of true success in the NHL. He will need to score a few more points to rise above a depth option in most leagues but he is young enough for there to be some hope.


Carl Gunnarsson recorded an assist Tuesday versus New Jersey. The assist was the only one on the eventual game-winner.

Fantasy Impact: Gunnarsson is a more important real-life player than a fantasy one. He only played 25 games in the 2018-19 regular season due to injury and has never bested 20 points in a season.


Ivan Barbashev scored two goals versus the Devils Tuesday. He is up to nine goals this season. Barbashev's first goal of the game was the eventual game-winner.

Fantasy Impact: Barbashev set career-highs in goals, assists, and points in 2018-19. The Russian center played on the fourth line last season and could see even better opportunities this season.


Jordan Binnington saved all 17 shots he faced Tuesday versus the Devils. St Louis would win 3-0.

Fantasy Impact: Binnington was a great fantasy asset once he took over last season and should be an exciting option. However, while it appears to be Binnington's job so far this season, the Blues still have Jake Allen under contract for the same two seasons.


Andrew Mangiapane scored three goals and also had an assist during a 6-4 win versus Anaheim. He scored on all three of his shots and was a plus-four in 18:45 minutes of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: He now has 13 goals and 12 assists in 59 games played. The goal scoring outburst against the Ducks resulted in his first goal in his last seven games.


Sean Monahan scored a goal helping Calgary to a 6-4 win versus Anaheim. He also had two shots on goal and finished the game with a plus-one rating.

Fantasy Impact: In 61 games, Monahan has 18 goals and 23 assists with a minus-20 rating. The goal was just his second in his last 10 games.


Matthew Tkachuk scored a goal and had an assist during the Flames 6-4 win versus Anaheim. He also finished the game with eight shots and a plus-three rating in 20:16 minutes of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: He has now reached the 50-point mark in his 60th game with 20 goals and 30 assists with a minus-nine rating. In his last five games Tkachuk has two goals and four assists.


Kieffer Bellows failed to record a point or SOG and finished the game a minus one in his 8:11 of ice time in the Islanders loss to the Arizona Coyotes on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: After a hot start to his career with three points in his first two games Kieffer Bellows has now failed to record a point in his last four games. Until he can find his scoring touch again Bellows should be off the fantasy radar.


Ryan Pulock picked up an assist and a SOG while leading all Islanders defensemen in ice time with 21:39 as the Islanders fell 2-1 to the Arizona Coyotes on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: Ryan Pulock increased his point total on the season to 30 against the Coyotes. And, Pulock should be the most sought after defenseman on the Islanders for fantasy purposes.


Semyon Varlamov stopped 28 of 30 shots on Monday night as the Islanders lost to the Coyotes 2-1. Both goals were the result of poor defensive play and Varlamov definitely played well enough to get the win.

Fantasy Impact: This was a tough loss for Semyon Varlamov as he has taken the loss in the last two games for the Islanders. While Varlamov has back to back losses the Islanders have only managed one goal combined in those games. Varlamov is playing well right now and if the Islanders can start scoring he should also start winning.


Anthony Beauvillier scored the only goal of the game for the Islanders in their 2-1 loss to the Coyotes on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: Anthony Beauvillier's goal on Monday marks the first time in four games that he was able to find the back of the net. Beauvillier's goal gave him a new career high with 37 points (18 goals and 19 assists) on the season. Beauvillier has tended to score in bunches this season so he may be a worth while add to your fantasy team.


Nathan Mackinnon potted a goal and an assist on Monday night as the Avalanche fell to the Tampa Bay Lightning in a 4-3 OT loss. He finished the game with two points, an even rating, five shots, one hit and one block.

Fantasy Impact: Mackinnon swooped in while the Avs were pressing and Landeskog dropped a pass for him. He found his way into the middle of the ice, unchecked and scored his 33rd of the season. As if Mackinnon isn't doing enough for the Avalanche this year, he's going to be asked to do more as they just lost Mikko Rantanen to a broken collarbone. He's up to 33 goals and 49 assists this year.


Valeri Nichushkin scored his 12th of the year in Colorado's 4-3 OT home-loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday. He tallied a goal, one shot and five hits.

Fantasy Impact: The goal came off a Cale Makar point shot that happened to hit him in the body and bounced top corner. It wasn't the prettiest but they'll take as the Avalanche were able to salvage a point in the game. He's up to twelve goals and 24 points this year, two goals away from his personal best of 14.


Andrew Burakovsky scored the opening goal in Monday night's 4-3 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning. He finished the game with one point, two shots and one hit.

Fantasy Impact: Burakovsky snuck in from the high slot and took a pass from Mikko Rantanen. He let off a quick one-timer and is now one shy of twenty on the season. With the injuries racking up for Colorado, Burakovsky will be getting a lot more opportunities with Mackinnon. With the way he's playing right now and the upside, he's worth a pick up.


Carlson helped T.J. Oshie on the power play for a third-period goal that was not enough to avoid losing 3-2 to Las Vegas.

Fantasy Impact: The defenseman continues his record-breaking season.


Holtby stopped 26 of 29 shots as the Golden Knights defeated the Caps 3-2.

Fantasy Impact: Since early December, things have been rocky for the veteran netminder--a combination of bad defense, bad luck and poor play. A sleepy offense doesn't help matters.


Oshie's third=period display was not enough, as the Caps were defeated 3-2 on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: With 44 points in 59 games (+3), the winger might be a satisfactory choice for fantasy, but shooting at 20% is not sustainable.


Vrana assisted T.J. Oshie in the third period of the 3-2 loss to Vegas.

Fantasy Impact: The speedy winger has 49 points in 59 games (+5) and is a reasonable choice for fantasy.
