Nashville Predators

central

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.

Filip Forsberg scored a goal on four shots in Nashville''s 6-4 defeat of New Jersey on Saturday night. He was also +2 and picked up two PIM as well as two Hits in 20:07 in ice time.

Fantasy Impact: Forsberg leads Nashville in goals with 11 and is third in points with 19. He is probably the best forward bet on the Predators for nightly production, though that is not saying much. It's hard to trust starting a guy who has only two points in his last five. He does at least provide a steady floor with 3.86 shots per game on the season.

Pekka Rinne stopped 29 of 33 shots and the Predators won 6-4 on Saturday night as the goaltender won his 10th game of the season.

Fantasy Impact: With three shutouts and sitting at 10-4-3, Rinne is a boom or bust play with his propensity to win games, when he starts. However, with a 2.92 GAA and .897 save percentage, his peripherals aren't going to provide much extra, unless his team can turn it around.

Johansen was assessed a five minute major and game misconduct for elbowing Tampa Bay's Brayden Point during Tuesday night's matchup. The Department of Player Safety reviewed the play and decided to fine Johansen $5,000 in lieu of a suspension. (Source: NHL Player Safety on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With four goals and 13 assists through 27 games, as well as zero points and only two shots in his last three games, Johansen is only a recommended start in deep leagues, though he can provide some matchup-based production for shallower leagues. If you are relying on him, he will not miss games related to the elbowing incident.

Ellis helped Kyle Turris on the power play, tying the game at 2-2 in the third period, with the Preds losing to the Lightning in overtime.

Bonino helped Rocco Grimaldi for the game-winner as the Preds shut out the Hurricanes 3-0 on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: At 16 points in 26 games (+9), Bonino is borderline in fantasy.

Fantasy Impact: Playing on the fourth line, with only nine points in 26 games (+4), Watson should not be on fantasy teams.

Fantasy Impact: At 15 points in 22 games (+1), Arvidsson is chancy in fantasy.

Category: Game Recaps


Granlund assisted Mattias Eckholm in the first period of the 4-2 victory on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: The center is heating up with five points in five games but the Preds need to prove their slump is over before he can be recommended for fantasy.

Olivier helped Colton Sissons for the final goal of the 4-2 of the win of St. Louis on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: The rookie has played three NHL games, so fantasy players should wait-and-see for this young winger.

Category: Game Recaps


Sissons made it 3-1 in the first period of the 4-2 victory on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: This was the fourth-line center's first point after a six-game drought; he now has 12 points in 22 games (+2) and so is not the best (or worst) choice in fantasy.

Smith helped Calle Jarnkrok for a power-play goal in the second period of the 6-3 loss to Vancouver.

Fantasy Impact: At five points in 21 games (+7), Smith is not a good choice in fantasy.
