News: Alex Tanguay gathered an assist but took a minus-2 rating in Tuesday's loss to the Predators. Analysis: Alex Tanguay continues to find himself on top of the Avs' point list this season with 33. He hasn't done much to help his cause on the power play with only eight points in that capacity, but he's been one of the few Avs forward to meet or surpass expectations so far. Health always remains a worry for the 35-year-old, however, so keep prepared in the event Tanguay breaks down in the second half.
News: Riley Sheahan set up two goals in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Panthers. Analysis: Riley Sheahan is developing a nice rapport on a line with Stephen Weiss and Luke Glendening. At 23 years old, he shouldn't be relied upon for consistent offensive production but it's clear that he has the potential to become an important player for the Red Wings, current leaders of the Atlantic Division.
News: Jarome Iginla potted a goal in Tuesday's loss to the Predators. Analysis: Jarome Iginla has notched goals in consecutive games to show he still has some juice left in his 37-year-old legs. While he's still fallen short of the offensive output he showed in Boston last season, Iginla's 15 goals and 32 points through 49 games make him a useful depth piece for most fantasy squads.
News: Zach Redmond recorded an assist and five shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Predators. Analysis: Zach Redmond had been a healthy scratch for most of January, but with Erik Johnson set to miss the next 3-to-8 weeks with a knee injury, a regular lineup spot awaits for the blueliner. With four goals, 11 points and 44 shot attempts in the 27 games he's played this season, Redmond presents more upside than most of the league's depth defensemen. The promise of a regular role for the next several games makes him worthy of a speculative roster addition in deeper formats.
News: Seth Jones set up Colin Wilson's second-period power-play goal in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Avalanche. Analysis: Since Ryan Ellis went down with a lower-body injury earlier in January, Seth Jones has thrived while taking on an expanded role defensively for the Predators. The 20-year-old has enjoyed the most productive stretch of his brief career, tallying an assist in four of his last five games. Jones' talent has always been matched by few, and now that he's finally starting to make good on it, he's a worthy roster addition for those looking for blue line help.
News: Jonathan Bernier is slated to start Wednesday's game against New Jersey, NHL.com's Mike Morreale reports. Analysis: In his first game back from the All-Star break, Jonathan Bernier -- who has dropped his last four decisions -- will try to help the Leafs end a six-game slide that has landed the team in a three-way tie for 10th place in the Eastern Conference, with 47 points.
News: Al Montoya, working in relief of a struggling Roberto Luongo, denied all 10 shots that came his way in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Red Wings. Analysis: Luongo was sent to the pine in the second period after allowing five goals on 17 shots. For Al Montoya, his last two appearances have come in relief and it's hard to count on a goalie lacking consistent starts between the pipes.
News: Filip Forsberg netted his 16th goal of the season in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Avalanche. Analysis: With the goal, Filip Forsberg was able to maintain the team lead in the category ahead of Colin Wilson, who also scored in the win. The youngster is still flying high after scoring two goals in this past weekend's All-Star Game, and should remain a high-end fantasy asset in the second half.
News: Craig Smith scored the game-winning goal in Tuesday's overtime victory over the Avalanche. Analysis: Craig Smith claimed first star honors after beating Avs goalie Semyon Varlamov on a breakaway at the 2:46 mark of the extra period. It's the 14th goal of the season for the 25-year-old, who ranks fourth on the team in that category.
News: Colin Wilson recorded a power-play goal in Tuesday's win over the Avalanche. Analysis: Colin Wilson saw a four-game point streak come to an end earlier this month, but his continued presence on a talented second line that includes Mike Fisher and James Neal along with the Preds' secondary power-play unit should allow him to maintain some value. With 32 points in 44 games, the 25-year-old is well on his way to blowing past his previous full season-best of 35 points.
