Reminder to all you fantasy GM's out there: there are four early games today so those of you in daily change leagues, get your lineups done early.
Jaroslav Halak with the shutout of the Kings last night stopping 22 shots. He's got a lot of good things going for him. He has only one regulation loss in his last 16 games. He has won 8 of his last 9 games. And best of all, he has four shutouts in his last seven games. That has to be some type of record. In his last 10 games he's posted a .954 save% and 1.18 gaa. Even his numbers on the season have turned stellar: 15-8-5, .921 save%, 1.96 gaa, and 5 shutouts. At this rate, don't they have to start him tonight in the second game of the B2B?
Halak saw to it that Justin Williams' point streak did not reach double digits.
Derick Brassard with two goals on 4 shots including the game winner in OT. He's been decent recently with 2+2=4, plus-3, and 9 PIM.
Jeff Carter returned from his shoulder injury and scored a third period goal to force overtime. The best thing that could happen is that he gets traded so he can really help himself by putting a mini streak together to entice other teams.
Two more goals for Teemu Selanne including one on the PPG and he even contributed 2 PIM.
Jarome Iginla with 1+1=2 and 6 shots last night. He needs to put forth a big effort to end this season to justify where he was taken in fantasy drafts.
P.A. Parenteau with two assists last night and he's been scorching lately with 4+11=15 in his last 12 games.
Kris Versteeg with a PPG last night and he's got 3+2=5 over a three game point streak.
Small trade as the Rangers sent Erik Christensen and a 7th round pick for Casey Wellman. Christensen will join the Wild and he does have some scoring upside. There's a chance he has some sort of impact but I wouldn't bet on it. Wellman has disappointed as a prospect. He'll join the Whale.
