Tuesday's Daily Dosage - Chara, Yandle, Gagner...

FHS Fantasy Line of the night, SWEET! - USA TODAY Sports

A fantasized look at Monday night's NHL games.

The big man came through last night as Zdeno Chara unleashed 1+2=3, 4 shots, and plus-1 in over 26 minutes on the ice. He should be a solid source of points yet again this season.

Fantasy line of the night goes to Keith Yandle with 1+2=3, 2 PIM, 3 shots, and plus-2. He's on a three game point scoring streak with 1+4=5 with 2 PPP.

Alexander Semin with a nice line of two assists, plus-3, and 5 shots in almost 23 minutes of playing time. I'd say the plus-3 is especially impressive in a game that the Hurricanes lost 5-3.

In his season debut, Jamie Benn had an assist, four PIM, and two shots while playing over 20 minutes for the Stars. That a way to throw him right into the fire.

Dougie Hamilton is here to stay after he played his fifth NHL game last night. He also contributed an assist, 4 shots, and 2 hits on the night giving him 4 assists in his 5 games. You have to like what you've seen from the kid thus far.

Chad Johnson posted his first career shutout making 22 saves along the way last night. This further proves that any goalie can flourish under Dave Tippett's system. Unfortunately for him Mike Smith shouldn't miss much time so he'll likely find himself back in the AHL sooner rather than later.

Mr. Eight Point Night, Sam Gagner, has contributed points in all five Oilers games on this young season. His two assists last night gave him his first multi-point effort of the season putting his scoring totals at 2+4=6. He's put up point totals in the 40's in each of his first five seasons but It's important to remember that he's just 23 years old and likely hasn't reached his full potential.

Taylor Hall is another Oiler who has participated in the scoring in each of his first five games and he's at 1+5=6. Can't beat a point per game player.

Another good game for Devan Dubnyk as he made 37 saves on 38 shots for the win. He's put together back to back impressive performances after the first period shelling he received at the hands of the Sharks.

Some good news for those of us who drafted P.K. Subban as he signed for two years at $5.75 million. That's a lot less than PK wanted but with the Canadiens off to a 3-1 start and Andrei Markov playing to well, Subban seemed to have no choice but to accept less.
