Game Recaps

Henrik Lundqvist gave up two goals on 25 shots faced in a 3-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Lundqvist's record will now drop to 7-7-2 with a 3.15 GAA and 0.911 SV% in 17 starts.

Kaapo Kakko contributed with the secondary assist on Artemi Panarin's power play goal as the Rangers lost to the Kings 3-1 Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Kakko now has six goals, eight assists, and a minus-11 rating in 28 games played this year.

Chris Kreider got the primary assist on Artemi Panarin's late third period power play goal Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: There have been many rumors swirling around recently involving the Rangers dealing Kreider after many years of underachieving. He currently has seven goals, eight assists, and a plus-one rating through 30 games this year.

Artemi Panarin scored his 15th goal of the regular season on the power play to cut the Kings' lead to 2-1 19:29 in the third period. Los Angeles would score an empty-net goal 16 seconds later to ice the game.

Fantasy Impact: Panarin is hot as he now has 15 goals and 37 points in just 30 games played this season.

Ben Bishop stopped all 26 shots faced as the Stars shutout the New Jersey Devils 2-0 Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Bishop has really been getting it going lately with his most recent performance coming in the form of a shutout. This was his first shutout of the season and he has not given up more than a pair of goals in his last six starts. He will improve his record to 12-6-2 along with a 2.03 GAA and 0.934 SV%.

Alexander Radulov served up the secondary assist on Joe Pavelski's first period goal to give the Stars a 2-0 lead over the Devils Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Radulov has now had points in his last two games played. His contributions will come a long way as he is considered one of the leaders of this squad. With their head coach just recently fired, everyone must ban together during this difficult time. Radulov provides a veteran presence to help guide the youngsters through the darkness.

Roope Hintz dished out the primary assist on Joe Pavelski's first period goal as the Stars went on to defeat the New Jersey Devils 2-0 Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Hintz's production had hit a little bit of a snag recently after coming back from an injury he suffered in early November. Since his return from the injury, he has only produced two points aside from the one he got Tuesday night. Maybe this is the spark he needs to get back on track from where he was earlier in the season.

Joe Pavelski scored 11:50 into the first period to give the Stars a 2-0 lead over the New Jersey Devils Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Even though Pavelski may not be the same kind of player he was during his time in San Jose, but he can still have a major impact in a number of situations for Dallas. This win was big for the Stars especially just after the firing of their head coach Jim Montgomery. Keeping the spirits in the locker room up is crucial and Pavelski's goal went a long way to help secure the win Tuesday.

Blake Comeau contributed with the secondary assist on Radek Faksa's early first period goal as the Stars jumped out to a 1-0 lead over New Jersey.

Fantasy Impact: Comeau has three goals, six points, and a minus-two rating in 18 contests this year.

Andrew Cogliano provided the primary assist on Radek Faksa's first period goal to give the Stars a 1-0 lead over the Devils Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: This is the second consecutive game where Cogliano has produced a point on offense. He has had a fairly quiet season up to this point as he only has six points in 31 games played.

Radek Faksa buried his seventh goal of the regular season to give the Stars a 1-0 lead over the New Jersey Devils Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: This was Faksa's first goal since November 21 which came against the Winnipeg Jets. He now has seven goals, 13 points, and a minus-three rating this season in 32 games while playing on the third line with Andrew Cogliano and Blake Comeau.

Romi Josi picked up the secondary helper on Calle Jarnkrok's tally with 42 seconds left in Nashville's 3-1 win over San Jose.

Fantasy Impact: That brings his team leading point total to 26. Josi is one of the top fantasy defensemen in the league. Start him always.

Saros picked up the 3-1 win against the Sharks. He was pitching a shutout until Timo Meier was able to crack him with 1:58 remaining in the game

Fantasy Impact: Saros and Rinne have basically been splitting starts up to this point and have very similar stats. That being said, at 4-6-2 with a 2.96 GAA and .896 SV%, Saros is not someone who should be in play, except for in great matchups, until the team starts to turn it around.

Linus Ullmark stopped 28 on the 30 shots he faced for his ninth win on the season. He currently has a 2.83 GAA.

Fantasy Impact: Ullmark has won four of his last five starts and when in net is playing well for the Sabres. He is worth starting when he is in between the pipes, especially in two goalie leagues.

Jack Eichel scored twice on Tuesday, extending his point streak to 14 games.

Fantasy Impact: Eichel has been on fire as of late, with 12 goals and 13 assists during his current point streak. He will not hurt you in anyway and belongs in your lineup on a nightly basis.

Eric Comrie allowed five goals in the Red Wings’ 5-1 loss to the Jets on Tuesday. He saved 25-30 shots against while taking the loss.

Fantasy Impact: In Comrie’s brief NHL career He is 2-4 with a 4.24 GAA and a .867 SV%. He clearly is not a viable fantasy option this year no matter the circumstance. The Red Wings goaltending situation is a mess with no resolution in sight. Clearly there is an issue when you lose 12 straight games. He should be stacked against in DFS whenever he hits the ice.

Christoffer Ehn scored the lone Red Wings’ goal in their 5-1 loss to the Jets on Tuesday. He had one goal on four SOG in 9:55 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: Ehn may be a fourth liner but it took him 23 games to get his first point on the season. This team is a train wreck and has two players currently usable in fantasy. They are hard to watch.

Dominik Kubalik scored the lone Blackhawks’ goal in their 5-1 loss to the Golden Knights on Tuesday. He was a minus one with one goal, one PPG and one SOG in 15:24 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: Kubalik has certainly been able to find the back of the net. He now has eight goals but only four assists thru 29 games this season. He is not worth owning because the only thing he can contribute to your roster is a 20 plus goal season.

Corey Crawford allowed five goals in the Blackhawks’ 5-1 loss to the Golden Knights on Tuesday. He saved 32-37 shots against while taking the loss.

Fantasy Impact: Crawford dropped his record to 6-8-2 with a 3.02 GAA and a .909 SV%. His save percentage is respectable but to allow three goals a game is not. Look for him to fall out of a 50/50 time share if he continues to struggle. He is free agent at the end of the year so it is not impossible to think he could be dealt before the trade deadline.

Chychrun scored his 7th goal of the season as the Coyotes fell 5-2 to the Flames.

Fantasy Impact: Jakob Chychrun is an option in deeper leagues but by no means a must start. He has 7 goals and 12 points in 33 games this season.
