Malkin helped Jake Guentzel on the power play and then netted the puck in the first period of the 6-1 victory on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: The center seems to be at the top of his game, playing at a point-a-game pace since his return.

Guentzel scored in the first period on the power play and helped Evgeni Malkin as the Pens won 6-1 on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: With 16 points in twenty games (-1), Guentzel is a possibility in fantasy.

Galchenyuk helped Jake Guentzel on the power play in the first period of the 6-1 victory over Toronto.

Fantasy Impact: With five assists in 11 games (-3), Galchenyuk is not a very good choice in fantasy.

Johnson helped Dominik Kahun in the second period of the 6-1 win on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: With only four points in 19 games (+5) and playing on the third defensive pair, Johnson should not be used in fantasy.

McCann's third-period goal made it 5-0 as the Pens won 6-1 on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: The fourth-line center has 12 points in 18 games (+15) and might be worth taking a chance on in fantasy.

Rust helped Evgeni Malkin in the first period, Dominik Kahun in the second and scored short-handed in the third as the Pens clobbered Toronto 6-1.

Fantasy Impact: The second-line winger is playing very well (10 points in 9 games, +7) with plenty of ice time.

Jarry stopped 32 of 33 shots in the 6-1 victory on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Although his record is mixed (2-3) the backup goalie's stats are excellent: 1.99 GAA and .938 save pct.

Tanev helped Dominik Kahun and Jared McCann in the second period as the Pens dominated Toronto 6-1.

Fantasy Impact: With nine points in twenty games (+1), the fourth-line winger is not of interest in fantasy.

Category: Game Recaps


Blueger helped Bryan Rust for a shortie in the third period of the 6-1 victory on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Due to injuries, Blueger played on the first line, which may lead to more opportunities for him.

Category: Game Recaps


Kahun scored twice and helped Jared McCann in the second period of the 6-1 win over Toronto.

Fantasy Impact: The fourth-line winger with ten points in 19 games (+7) is marginal in fantasy.

Category: Game Recaps


Marino helped Dominik Kahun in the second period as the Pens clobbered the Maple Leafs 6-1 on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: With five points in 18 games, the rookie is not a factor in fantasy.

Brendan Gallagher scored his ninth goal of the season in Montreal's OT loss to the Devils Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: Gallagher's 70 shots-on-goal leads Montreal, as do his nine goals. He's a key to the Canadiens balanced attack and a must start in all formats.

Keith Kinkaid allowed four goals on 43 shots to his former club as the Canadiens fell to the Devils in overtime 4-3 Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: Kinkaid played well enough to garner third star honors in the scoring fest, but it wasn't enough for the win. Kinkaid has allowed seventeen goals in 4 starts this season. Needless to say, he has no fantasy value.

David Pastrnak nets 17th goal

By John Pritchard

David Pastrnak scored his league-leading 17th goal as the Bruins fell in a shootout to the Washington Capitals Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: Pastrnak continues to swap the top spot with Edmonton's Leon Draisaitl, who has 16 goals entering Sunday. Pastrnak now has 17 goals in 20 games.

Category: Game Recaps


Jaroslav Halak stopped 42-of-44 shots as the Bruins fell to the Capitals 3-2 in a shootout Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: It was the second straight shootout loss for Halak, and the Bruins third shootout loss in their last four games. Halak was praised by teammates for his performance after the game. Halak is a Top 100 player to start the year and is a reliable second goaltender for fantasy purposes.

Andre Burakovsky potted a goal and an assist in Colorado's 5-4 OT victory over the Vancouver Canucks. He finished the game with two points, a plus-2 rating, and two shots.

Fantasy Impact: Burakovsky was trailing in through the hash marks while Nathan Mackinnon was wheeling around from behind the net. Mackinnon found him through some bodies and got the pass through for him to bury. That brings him up to eight goals and 16 points through 20 games this year. His best season to date was 38 points back in 2015 with the Washington Capitals. If he were to maintain this pace he'd be looking at personal bests and then some. There's still no clear time table for Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen to return and if he's playing shifts with Mackinnon, he's worthy of a roster spot for the time being. He carries LW/RW eligibility too, if that helps sweeten the deal.

Cale Makar chipped in a helper in four straight goals on Saturday night, helping the Avalanche defeat the Vancouver Canucks 5-4. He tallied four points, a plus-3 rating, and three blocks.

Fantasy Impact: Makar is continuously finding ways to spring his teammates and getting the puck to them. He has excellent vision and patience on the ice and gives his forwards ample opportunity to get open. Him and Mackinnon have developed a great rapport and look very comfortable on the same line. He appears to be everything as advertised so far with five goals and 22 points through 20 games and could be a steal where he was going in drafts. Make sure he's in your lineup when the Avs are on the ice.

Vince Dunn scored the lone Blues goal of the game versus the Ducks Saturday. The goal was his third of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Dunn is in his third season and is following up on a second season where he showed improvement in the major fantasy categories. He is a solid fantasy option at defensemen.

Category: Game Recaps


Zach Sanford recorded an assist versus Anaheim Saturday. It came on the only St Louis goal of the game.

Fantasy Impact: Last season was the first time Sanford played more than 26 games and while he put up his best numbers, he was not much of a fantasy option. He may develop into a factor someday but for now, he can remain on the waiver wire of most leagues.

Roberto Bortuzzo recorded an assist Saturday versus the Ducks. It was his first point of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Bortuzzo has not been much of a fantasy factor in his career. He should not be owned in most leagues.
