Fantasy Hockey News for Monday

A fantasized look at the NHL action from Sunday night

Only 3 games on tap last night so let's get things started with the Stanley Cup rematch.

History repeated itself as the Blackhawks got the better of the Bruins once again. If you're a Bruins fan, take solace in Tuukka Rask having a strong outing despite taking the SOL. He turned aside 35/37 shots. Hopefully this performance will get him to return to the level of consistency we expect from him.

Corey Crawford also put in a strong, marginally worse, effort turning aside 34/36 shots, picking up the W.

Marian Hossa continued his hot play of late after potting another goal he has 5 goals and 7 points in his last 5 outings.

You'd think that Ben Bishop's peripherals would be abysmal after letting in 3 goals. Apparently, that's not the case when you turn aside 48(!) of 51 shots and pick up the win.

Young gun Ondrej Palat had a noticeable night with 1+2=3, +2, 3SOGs, 1BS and 1HIT. As you'd expect with most newbies, this one was a slump buster as he followed up his 8 game point streak with 5 scoreless outings.

Rick Nash appears to finally waking up after being named to Team Canada's roster. He scored two last night and is really making me regret trading him for Logan Couture (pre-injury). He's been dormant all season and he might be heating up but I advise you to keep your expectations tempered. It looks like he has everything to be successful, a big frame, decent skating, a good shot but he really hasn't been able to put it together in New York and his surrounding cast certainly won't carry him to success. In the upper echelons of his production, he's about a point per game player at best.

Alex Ovechkin with the Capitals only power play marker. He's cooled off from his ungodly scoring rate and, although he sits at 35 goals in 47 games, he's got 49 points and a killer -16 on the year. His play has elevated this year for sure, but he is not yet at the level he was four years ago where 100 point seasons were associated with his last name.
