Fantasy Hockey News for Tuesday

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

A fantasized look at Monday's NHL action

Ondrej Pavelec stopped 24 of 25 shots to take home the win last night. He's gone seven straight games without a regulation loss to the tune of 6-0-1 and has really kept the Jets' playoff hopes alive.

Jimmy Howard posted a 34 save shutout last night and this was his second shutout in the last four games. Unfortunately, those shutouts are his only two wins in his last seven starts.

Let's go with the Mule, Johan Franzen, for fantasy line of the night for his 2 goals, PPP, GWG, 4 shots, and 2 blocks. He's finishing strong with 5 goals in his last 5 games.

Niklas Kronwall had just two assists in his previous 11 matches, but he matched that last night as he notched two apples. Even considering his cold streak, it's been a good season for Kronwall as he's established himself as one of the top fantasy options from the blue line.

Tomas Vokoun won his third straight game, stopping 34 of 35 shots along the way. He's 9-1-0 in his last 10 starts and the Penguins look mighty smart for bringing him in to spell MAF.

Jarome Iginla scored the game winning goal and also had 5 shots yesterday. He has goals in three straight games and 7 points (4 PPP) over his last 6 contests.

A couple of assists for Corey Perry as he extended his point scoring streak to four games. His season production is trending in the right direction. His slow start and suspension might allow him to fall a bit in your drafts next season so I like him as a little bit of a sleeper.

Speaking of sleepers, Ryan Getzlaf was a big one coming into this season. He had a so-so season last year with 57 points in 82 games, but if you were betting on a bounceback, he's certainly given you that. He had a powerplay goal which also turned out to be the game winner. He's had 3+6=9, 4 PPP, and 17 hits over his last 8 games. On the season he's at 47 points in 43 games. He won't be as cheap next season.

Viktor Fasth shut out the Oilers with 24 saves last night. He improved his record to 15-5-2 with 4 shutouts on the season. Jonas Hiller will be in a walk year next season so best case for Fasth is that Hiller gets traded.

Daniel Sedin had a goal and an assist while brother Henrik Sedin had two assists. After last night, Henrik and Daniel are #1 and #2, respectively, in points for the Canucks, so kudos to the twins.
