News: Jhonas Enroth gave up four goals on 31 shots in Tuesday's loss to Calgary. Analysis: In a typical Buffalo-style game, his teammates mustered only 18 shots on opposing goalie Jonas Hiller. That's seven straight losing starts for Jhonas Enroth (he had one relief appearance without a decision in that span), who's given up a stunning 34 goals on those seven losses. Yes, 34. A whopping 22 of those have come in his last four starts.
News: Charlie Coyle scored a late-third-period goal Tuesday to make the difference in a 2-1 win over Edmonton. Analysis: It was one for the highlight reels, as Charlie Coyle swooped down the ice by himself at high speed past Oilers goalie Viktor Fasth, went past the net, sent the puck up toward the goal line, and then came back with the stick to tap it home from behind the goal. It's worth watching again and again. Coyle's offense remains inconsistent, but Tuesday's goal offers a reminder of what he's capable of doing.
News: Devan Dubnyk stopped 23 of 24 to deliver a 2-1 victory over his old Edmonton mates on Tuesday. Analysis: He'd struggled a bit in the last two games before the break after getting off to a big start with Minnesota, and there's been a sharp difference so far in Devan Dubnyk's results when facing good teams vs. bad ones. He's allowed two goals in total while beating the Oilers, Coyotes and Sabres, but gave up seven goals in two games against Columbus and Detroit.
News: Viktor Fasth allowed just two goals on 29 shots, but took the loss Tuesday against visiting Minnesota. Analysis: Ex-Oiler Devan Dubnyk stuck it to his old mates on the other side, ending Viktor Fasth's brief two-game winning streak. He's posted save marks of .925 or higher in three of the last four, but Fasth's body of work as a whole this year suggests that he can hardly be trusted by fantasy owners.
News: Rickard Rakell scored a goal and picked up a power-play assist in Tuesday's win over the Canucks. Analysis: With 15:19 of ice time, he skated more than he had in any of the last 10 games, and along with that came his highest shot total (four) since Dec. 22. The former first-round pick has noteworthy offensive upside, and he seems to be realizing it in fits and starts now. He's becoming fantasy-relevant in deeper formats.
News: Ryan Miller allowed three goals on 23 shots and watched his team get shut out in Tuesday's loss to Anaheim. Analysis: Well, if you're gonna lose, you might as well lose to the best. Ryan Miller and the Canucks have dropped two in a row, but both against quality opponents in Anaheim and Tampa Bay. An easier matchup looms Friday against Miller's old Sabres mates.
News: Frederik Andersen needed to make just 17 saves for his third shutout of the season Tuesday against Vancouver. Analysis: That's seven consecutive wins now for the impressive 25-year-old goalie, and two shutouts in the last four. His career record now sits at 47-11-5. You know what to do with that.
News: Aaron Ekblad picked up a pair of power-play assists and went minus-2 in Tuesday's loss to Detroit. Analysis: He'd gone into the break in a bit of a skid, with just two points in the prior six games, but had a four-point All-Stat Game performance and now exits the break with a couple more points. A 50-point rookie season remains in sight for the studly young blueliner.
News: Nick Bjugstad picked up a goal and an assist -- both on the man advantage -- in Tuesday's loss to Detroit. Analysis: The marker snapped a seven-game goalless streak for Nick Bjugstad. While his 29 points in 45 games aren't mind-blowing, pretty much all of Bjugstad's numbers have improved over last season, so the 22-year-old is making terrific progress. He'll clear 50 points this year, and next year could be huge.
News: Aleksander Barkov scored a power-play goal and added two assists (one on the power play) in Tuesday's loss to Detroit. Analysis: Amazingly, this is the first time all season that Aleksander Barkov's had more than one point in a game. Pretty stunning for a guy who's played such heavy minutes. But he'd been showing signs of a breakout even before the All-Star break, as Barkov has now successfully found his way onto the scoresheet in seven of the last nine games.
