Fantasy Hockey News for Friday

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

A fantasized look at the NHL action from Thursday

The CBJs did what they had to do last night and kept themselves alive. Who else but Sergei Bobrovsky was the star of the show stopping 31 of 32. He has been incredibly steady down the stretch as he has won seven of his past eight games, hasn't given up more than three goals in any of his last 12 games and has kept it to two or less in 9 of 12.

Cam Atkinson was the offensive spark for #Lumbus with two goals on seven shots. His production has been pretty sporadic this year but he has shown some spurtability.

Ryan Callahan seems to specialize in big goals as his winner in OT put the Rangers into the postseason. He has a solid 4+5=9, 22 shots & 15 hits during a six game point streak.

Tuukka Rask (30 saves) & James Reimer (34 saves) had your shutouts of the night. That's encouraging for both tenders as they each had rough outings in their previous game.

If the Wings get into the dance then watch out for Henrik Zetterberg as he'll be heading in on a hot streak with seven assists in his last three games. He only has one goal over his last seven contests despite 34 shots, so I'd say he's due.

2G for Jiri Tlusty last night and he now sits 5th in the whole goddam league in goals!?! Is it just me or do goals only come in pairs for this guy? He has scored in 13 games this season, nine times he had multiple goals & just four times he had a single goal. Not sure what you can do with that information but you're welcome.

Jussi Jokinen with another goal for the Pens and he has 5+4=9 in nine games since the trade... keep him in mind as a playoff pool sleeper.

Mike Green is heading into the playoffs at maximum velocity with 7+8=15, eight PPP & 44 shots over his last 14 games.

Phil Kessel pumped in two goals last night and has a pretty spicy 9+8=17 over his last 10 games.

Sad face for the Jets being eliminated but those of us that are duking it out for every single category were loving Mark Stuart's show of frustration late in the 3rd as his 12 PIMs & seven hits last night came in handy.

Max Pacioretty scored for the third straight game last night and has at least a point in six straight (4+3=7). He's on a pretty boffo 75 point & 300+ shot 82-game pace this season.

Ryan Reaves doesn't get a lot of love (well not from us at least), so stick-tap to him for his 2G, seven PIMs & six hits last night.

The Ducks sat Ryan Getzlaf, Teemu Selanne & Saku Koivu last night as they continue to rest up for the playoffs.

Higher: Joonas Rask.

Lower: Filip Forsberg, Austin Watson, Teemu Hartikainen & Colby Robak.
