Viktor Arvidsson also added a helper to give himself three points on the night.

Roman Josi recorded one goal and two assists against Tampa Bay on Tuesday night

Fantasy Impact: The Preds are rolling as of late thanks to Josi rejoining the lineup. Look for him to continue showing why he won the Norris trophy last season.

Pekka Rinne stopped 31 of 33 shots for a .939 save percentage. He failed to get any goal support as his team got blanked by the Lightning

Fantasy Impact: The Preds have gotten very good goaltending as of late from both Rinne and Juuse Saros. Look for that to continue.

Ekholm recorded 2 assists with a plus 3 rating Thursday against Detroit.

Fantasy Impact: He was among trade speculation prior to this amazing run. Expect him to remain an important piece of the Preds as the trade deadline approaches.

Saros is on quite the run. He's 8-0-2 in his last 10 starts with a 1.19 GAA and .964 Save percentage.

Fantasy Impact: It looks like Saros is finally coming into his own this season and is ready to command the net the rest of this season and seasons to come. Look for him to continue his hot streak against the Lightning.

Calle Jarnkrok scored a goal and had three assists during a 4-1 win versus Tampa Bay. He also had two shots on goal and finished with a plus-three rating in 14:36 minutes of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: In 23 games, Jarnkrok has seven goals and six assists with an even plus/minus rating. The 29-year old veteran is boasting a 21.2 shooting percentage which means he'll likely be due for a regression since he has a career 11.8 shooting percentage in eight seasons.

The Preds lost 3-2 in overtime on Monday after Turris' power-play goal. He was also credited with an assist on Calle Jarnkrok's second period goal.

Fantasy Impact: With 11 points in twenty games (-2), the top-line center is a possibility for fantasy.

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.

Fabbro helped Nick Bonino in the first period as the Preds defeated the Blues 3-2 in a shootout.

Fantasy Impact: With six points in 23 games (+6), this defenseman is not significant for fantasy players.

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.

Hamhuis helped Nick Bonino in the second period for the Predators first goal as they wiped out Detroit 6-1.

Fantasy Impact: With one assist in 13 games, Hamhuis is not a factor in fantasy.
