Alexandar Georgiev surrendered four goals on just 18 shots faced during Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the New York Islanders.

Fantasy Impact: After he had showed some pretty stiff resistance against the Islanders in back-to-back games last week, Georgiev did not look the same as he was tested little and gave up four goals in the process. He will enter the All-Star break owning a 12-10-1 record along with a 3.11 GAA and 0.910 SV%.

Ryan Strome provided the secondary helper on Chris Kreider's third period power play tally to pull the Rangers to within two Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: It was good seeing Strome's name reappear on the scoresheet as it had been absent in the last two contests. Through 48 games, he has 12 goals and 31 points.

Chris Kreider scored a power play goal 15:32 into the third frame of action to cut the Islanders' lead to 4-2 Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Kreider has been very impressive lately as he has produced points in nine of his last 12 outings. In 48 contests this year, he has 17 goals and 32 points. The Rangers have some serious thinking to do about Kreider's future in New York as the trade deadline is quickly approaching.

Mika Zibanejad earned assists on both power play goals scored by Pavel Buchnevich and Chris Kreider as the Rangers would lose to the Islanders 4-2 Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Zibanejad now has 39 points through 35 contests this season with the Blueshirts. He is currently on pace to finish the year with roughly around 72 points which would be two less than what he had in 2018-19. It is still impressive, considering he missed 13 games with an upper body injury earlier in the year. Had that not occurred, he would be in much better shape to surpass his career-best point total this season.

Adam Fox provided the primary assist on Pavel Buchnevich's third period power play goal to make it a 4-1 game in favor of the Islanders Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Fox has six goals, 27 points, and a plus-nine rating in 48 games this season. He has been a solid member of the team and will look to continue his strong play in the second-half of the year to cement his case for a permanent roster spot in the future.

Pavel Buchnevich scored 13:45 into the third period on the power play to cut the Islanders' lead down to 4-1 Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Buchnevich will enter the All-Star break with eight goals, 26 points, and a minus-four rating through 48 contests. There is a possibility his days in New York may be numbered should the Rangers decide to move on from him with the trade deadline approaching in a month.

Anthony Beauvillier scored his third power play goal of the season in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the New York Rangers. Beauvillier's goal is even more impressive when you consider the fact that he only got eight seconds of power play ice time in the game.

Fantasy Impact: Anthony Beauvillier is proving to be quite a valuable piece of the Islanders as he has six points in his last five games. Beauvillier has 13 goals and 16 assists on the year and is one of the hottest players for the Islanders going into the All-Star break.

Category: Game Recaps

Derick Brassard assisted on Josh Bailey's power play goal in the first period of the Islanders 4-2 win over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Derick Brassard's assist brings his point total up to 24 points (8 goals and 16 assists) in his 49 games played this year. Brassard plays his role on the Islanders well, but the fact that he has not scored a goal in 17 games means he should have no role on your fantasy team.

Thomas Greiss stopped 40 of 42 shots faced as he led the way for the Islanders in their 4-2 win over the Rangers on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Tuesday's win for Thomas Greiss gives him three wins in his last four starts, with the only loss coming via a shootout. Greiss enters the All-Star break as one of the hottest players on the Islanders and is a big part of why the Islanders are one of the best defensive teams in the NHL this season.

Category: Game Recaps

Mathew Barzal recorded two assists, including one on the power play, in the Islanders 4-2 win over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Mathew Barzal's two assists on Tuesday bring his point total up to 42 (17 goals and 25 assists) in his 49 games played this season. Barzal was the only Islander named to the All-Star game and has been a force all season for the Islanders. Fantasy need Barzal in their lineups at all times.

Josh Bailey exploded offensively in the Islanders 4-2 win over the Rangers on Tuesday night. Bailey recorded a goal and two assists in 18:05 minutes of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: Josh Bailey enters the All-Star break recording points in four of his last five games. Bailey is third on the Islanders in points and will look to continue scoring when the Islanders return to action after the All-Star break.

Category: Game Recaps

Scott Mayfield failed to record either a point or shot on goal in the Islanders 4-2 win over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Tuesday's win over the Rangers marks the fourth straight game Scott Mayfield has failed to record a point. Mayfield has only 13 points in 48 games this season, and does not offer a lot of fantasy upside unless he can start scoring more consistently.

Category: Game Recaps

Johnny Boychuk managed only one shot on goal in 16:03 of ice time during the Islanders 4-2 win over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Johnny Boychuk is firmly entrenched in his position on the third defense pairing for the Islanders and plays a significant defensive role for the team. With Boychuk's offensive upside basically nonexistent he does not offer much in the way of fantasy relevance.

Happy 19th Birthday Kirby Dach

Wed, Jan 22nd 9:14am EST
By Douglas Roth

Kirby Dach had a two-point night in the Blackhawks’ 4-3 loss to the Panthers on Tuesday. He was a plus one with a goal, an assist and two SOG.

Fantasy Impact: Dach has played well for an 18-year-old. He now has seven goals and seven assists thru 45 games. He is not fantasy viable at this point in his career but might become a fantasy starter later down the line. He shows some skill but seems gun shy to pull the trigger with the puck. As long as he stays on the power-play it would be tough to imagine he does not see an uptick in points.

Drake Caggiula scored a power-play goal in the Blackhawks 4-3 loss to the Panthers on Tuesday. He was a minus two with one goal, one PPG and two SOG in 15:13 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: Caggiula has seen a jump in playing time as of late getting some time on the second power-play unit. Unless he jumps to one of the top two lines, he will be hard to start in any fantasy league. He should be added to watchlist in case he starts to see more ice-time.

Category: Game Recaps

Robin Lehner allowed four goals in the Blackhawks’ 4-3 loss to the Panthers on Tuesday. He saved 22-26 shots against while taking the loss.

Fantasy Impact: Lehner had a tough outing in his last game before the All-Star break. He is now 15-8-4 with a 2.86 GAA and .922 SV%. Lehner is a must start going forward he should remain the Blackhawks number one option.

Patrick Kane scored a goal in the Blackhawks 4-3 loss to the Panthers on Tuesday. He was a plus one with one goal on six SOG in 26:05 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: Kane has been amazing but that is nothing new to him. He now has 25 goals and 38 assists thru 51 games this season. He will enter the All-Star break eighth in points among all NHLers. Kane is clearly a must start player but that is not news to anyone.

The Penguins go into the break having been shut out 3-0 by the Flyers. Jarry stopped 27 of 29 shots.

Fantasy Impact: Although this was his second straight loss, Jarry still has a fine record and stats: 16-8-0-1, GAA 2.16, save pct .929.

Artemi Panarin was not out practicing with his teammates during Monday's practice session as the Rangers prepare to take on the Islanders for Tuesday night. (Source: NY Post)

Fantasy Impact: Panarin had left Sunday's practice early with an upper-body issue, but he still managed to suit up against the Blue Jackets. He does not appear to be in jeopardy of missing Tuesday's action against the Islanders as the reason for sitting out of practice was for maintenance purposes. It still is worth monitoring this situation and with the All-Star break coming, it is a perfect time for the Russian forward to take some time and regroup for the back-half of the season.

Givani Smith scored the final Red Wing goal in their 6-3 loss to the Avalanche on Monday. He had one goal on three SOG in 11:15 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: Both of Smith’s goals have been while the Red Wings have been getting destroyed. It must be tough on the kid not being able to celebrate. Look for him to get a big goal sometime soon. He should be left on the waiver wire in all leagues.
