News: Joe Colborne scored a goal, picked up an assist, went plus-2 and collected four PIM in Tuesday's win over Buffalo. Analysis: The Sabres are as fantasy-friendly as an opponent can be, and Joe Colborne took advantage to deliver his third goal and fifth point in the last four games. He's starting to get rolling offensively again and is worth a look in deeper formats.
News: Jiri Hudler posted a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- and went plus-2 in Tuesday's win over the Sabres. Analysis: He'd been iffy coming in with an illness, but certainly looked healthy out there, firing four shots on goal -- his highest shot total since Dec. 16. Unsurprisingly for someone who's been shooting so little, Jiri Hudler hasn't been scoring many goals lately -- he has just one in his last 14 games, although he's racked up 10 assists in that span.
News: Johnny Gaudreau pushed his point streak to three games by scoring goals on both of his shots -- one on the power play -- Tuesday against Buffalo. Analysis: An efficient game for Johnny Gaudreau, who has a four-game streak if you include the All-Star Game. But we don't, of course. He just keeps looking better and better, and is on pace to easily hit 60 points while playing the least-physical hockey in the league -- the rookie hasn't taken a penalty in his 48 career NHL games, and he just five hits all year.
News: Jonas Hiller faced just 18 shots Tuesday, turning aside 17 in a 4-1 victory over Buffalo. Analysis: It's the 12th straight loss for the Sabres, and like most of them, it was pretty easy for the opposition. Jonas Hiller was rarely tested while ending a stretch of four straight appearances without a win. He's been inconsistent this year, but still represents the top starting option in net for the Flames.
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.
