Fantasy Hockey News for Thursday

Jeff Gross

A fantasized look at Wednesday night's NHL action.

Matt Duchene gets the call for fantasy line of the night with 1+1=2, PPG, 8 shots, and 2 blocks. His torrid pace had slowed a bit recently but he'll likely finish strong down the stretch.

Gabriel Landeskog scored a goal for the first time in his last 8 games. Between the injury and the sophomore slump, he's a prime sleeper candidate next season.

It must be the linemates as Gregory Campbell put up a second straight multipoint game last night when he scored twice including one shorthanded. He hadn't had more than one point in any other game this season.

It was the second straight game with two assists for Jaromir Jagr. The Bruins must be happy with him thus far as he has 1+4=5 and plus-3 in the four games since they acquired him.

Rich Peverley managed two shorthanded assists last night giving him consecutive two point games. Similarly to Campbell, he hadn't even had one multipoint game this season.

Martin Brodeur made an ugly 13 saves on 18 shots for the loss yesterday. He's now gone 8 straight starts without a win. He's 0-4-4 with .876 sv% and 2.76 gaa over that span.

Carl Hagelin went 10 straight games without a goal heading into last night's tilt. He finally responded with a goal and an assist in 17:03 of ice time. He'd fallen out of favor with Tortorella playing under 15 minutes in 6 out of the previous 7 matches.

Derek Stepan notched an assist to stretch his point scoring streak to six games (4+5=9).

Phil Kessel wishes he saw the Rangers more often as he scored two goals against them for the second consecutive game. He's a point per game player again with 40 points in 40 games.

Two assists and almost 18 minutes on the ice for Ryan Kesler in his second game back from injury. Looks like he's fine so roll with him if you've got him.

Henrik Sedin had two assists for the fourth multipoint effort in his last seven games. He's at 3+6=9 with 3 PPP over that span.

Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 25 of 29 shots for his sixth straight regulation loss. Bring back Joey MacDonald to the nets.

Mike Smith is really heating up as he stopped 29 of 30 shots for the win. He's allowed just two goals total in his last three starts.

Powerplay goal for David Moss and he also added an assist. He's got 3 points in his last 3 contests and is available if you're scraping the bottom of the barrel.

All of a sudden Nail Yakupov is back in the running for the Calder as he had a goal, a hit, 4 PIM, 4 shots, and plus-1. He's been productive since the month of March began with 4+3=7 over six games.
