Jake Debrusk tallied the first of two goals Boston put up on the Nashville Predators. He finished the game with a goal, an even-rating, two shots and one hit.

Fantasy Impact: The goal came on the power play and came quickly as the Bruins entered the zone with speed. Craig Smith was off the side boards and faked a slap shot which he sent Debrusk's way which he promptly fired top left for his fourth of the season. He's up to seven points on the season.

Jeremy Swayman stopped all 42 shots he faced in Boston's 2-0 road victory over the Nashville Predators on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact: Swayman was feeling the beat in Music City, U.S.A. as he turned away everything the Predators could throw at him. After getting a break for the last two home games he came in well rested and it showed. His 42-save effort is a career high and is the third shutout of his young career. He has a 7-4-0 record with a 2.20 GAA and .921 save percentage. His 57% roster percentage offers savvy fantasy managers a chance to grab a very capable 2nd or 3rd goalie.

Linus Ullmark allowed two goals in the Bruins' 2-1 loss to the Red Wings on Tuesday. He saved 14-16 shots against in the loss.

Fantasy Impact: Typically allowing two goals is acceptable. Not when the opponent only had 16 shots on goal. As long as he is in net for the Bruins consider him a must start.

David Pastrnak scored the only goal for the Bruins' in their 2-1 loss to the Red Wings. He had one power-play goal on nine SOG in 23:00 of ice-time.

Brad Marchand has been suspended for the slew-foot incident that occurred with Oliver Ekman-Larsson on Sunday. He will sit out the next three contests.

Fantasy Impact: The Department of Player Safety took exception to the unpenalized play so fantasy managers will be without a key forward this week. Marchand has a history of these types of moves so it's not unsurprising that they issued a suspension. He has nine goals and fifteen assists.

Taylor Hall had an empty netter, and assisted a goal, in the 5-2 victory of the Montreal Canadiens.

Fantasy Impact: The two points on Sunday brings Hall's total to nine on the season. While he has had an alright start, fantasy managers are expecting more from a winger in a the top-six role with a stacked team like the Bruins. Hopefully his first multi-point game of the month will help him finish November strong.

Charlie McAvoy scored twice, one the lone power play goal of the game, in the 5-2 victory on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: With the two goals McAvoy has now had back-to-back multi-point games, five total on the season. The former first round pick has had a great start to the 2021-22 season and finds himself in the top 10 for defensemen in fantasy points thus far.

Reilly scored his first goal of the season and tallied an assist in Boston's dominant win over Detroit.

Fantasy Impact: He has only 3 points on the season and is a 0 in plus/minus. With no role in the power play, he is best left on waivers.

Fantasy Impact: Ritchie stepped up in a big way for the Bruins and gave them a fighting chance to steal Game 1 in OT. Unfortunately Boston could not convert so Ritchie's goal will not be well remembered. The Bruins will need him to get big goals like that more often should they make a deep run this Spring.
