Johan Hedberg is super hot right now. A shutout last night gives him five wins in a row... with only six goals allowed. The Devils play the 2nd game of the B2B tomorrow no word yet on if Hedberg or the newly healthy Martin Brodeur will get the nod.
Ilya Kovalchuk with another goal to keep his point streak alive at nine (7+3=10).
Who needs Jaroslav Halak? Not the Blues as they have Ty Conklin. Conks picked up the 25 save shutout last night. He hasn't done well this year (3.21 gaa and .882 sv%) in his role as backup. He'll get the majority of the starts until Halak returns.
One of FHS' favourites, Patrik Berglund, had a massively disappointing sophomore season last year but has been playing better this season... especially lately. He had a goal last night and now has 14 points in his last 14 games.
T.J. Oshie with the 1+1=2 night yesterday. Looks like all the rust has been shaken off as he now has six points in his last six games.
Pavel Datsyuk picked up a goal and assist last night. His 1.23 ppg is the fourth best in the league. He has nine points in the six games he's played since he returned from injury.
Todd Bertuzzi had two goals last night. It was his third two point game in his last four games. This streak pushed him over the 50 point pace mark. We'll see if he can keep it up as he hasn't had a 50 point season since he was on the Canucks.
Brad Marchand continued his hot streak with two goals last night. He now has 13 points in his last 12 games. He's even getting a bit of PP time lately (~1:00/game the last five games after averaging 0:20/game the rest of the season)
Bobby Butler had a goal last night and now has five points in his last three games. He's playing with Jason Spezza and Milan Michalek...there are definitely worse guys out there to take a flyer on.
Never expected Kyle Brodziak to be fantasy worthy but his 1+2=3 last night gives him 14 points in his last 14 games.
Curtis McElhinney struggled for the third straight game last night. He's let in 16 goals over those three games. I'd avoid starting him as I'd be willing to bet we'll see Timo Pielmeier between the pipes tonight.
Patrick Sharp continues to be the most underrated fantasy stud out there. He had 2+1=3 last night and is on pace for 73 points and 305 shots. I could definitely live without the -9 though.
Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews had two assists each. Kane has 13 points and Toews has 14 points in his their nine games.
