Ducks' Jonathan Bernier: Allows four goals in relief effort
Jonathan Bernier, G, ANA

News: Bernier allowed four goals on 20 shots in Saturday's 5-3 loss against the Wild.

Bernier took over for the injured John Gibson (upper body) in the first period, and was sailing along until allowing three quick goals in a 1:59 span late in the third period. The veteran might be asked to start if Gibson is forced to the shelf, so he has some short-term fantasy appeal if he starts more frequently.

Wild's Devan Dubnyk: Allows three goals in victory
Devan Dubnyk, G, MIN
3:00 AM
News: Dubnyk turned aside 26 of the 29 shots he faced in Saturday's 5-3 win against the Wild.

While Dubnyk leads the NHL in GAA and save percentage, he has allowed at least three goals in six of his past nine starts. The offense bailed him out in this one. Despite the uneven performances of late, Dubnyk tends goal for a contender and his overall body of work makes him a must-start fantasy option.

Peter Budaj
Kings' Peter Budaj: Allows three goals in loss
Peter Budaj, G, LA
2:05 AM
News: Budaj made 32 saves in a 4-2 loss to the Islanders. He allowed three goals.

He has lost three straight and four of his last six starts. Budaj remains the go-to guy in the blue paint as long as Jonathan Quick is sidelined. He'll need to throw down some strong performances for the Kings to scratch their way to a wild card position, though.

Islanders' Jean-Francois Berube: Sharp in win over Kings
Jean-Francois Berube, G, NYI
1:45 AM
News: Berube made 34 saves in a 4-2 win over the Kings on Saturday night.

It was Berube's first start since Dec. 18 and first win of the season. Thomas Greiss is the top dog for the Isles, so Berube's value lies as a handcuff.

Steve Mason
Flyers' Steve Mason: Appears in relief
Steve Mason, G, PHI
1:10 AM
News: Mason started the third period of Saturday's game against the Devils after starter Michal Neuvirth was removed for precautionary reasons. He allowed one goal on four shots.

Mason has had a few poor performances of late and Neuvirth was being given a shot at the blue paint. There was no post-game update on the latter's health, but Neuvirth did miss 24 games this season due to a knee injury

Michal Neuvirth
Flyers' Michal Neuvirth: Leaves game for precautionary reasons
Michal Neuvirth, G, PHI
1:05 AM
News: Neuvirth was removed from Saturday's game after two periods for precautionary reasons, reports NHL.com. He had made 22 saves and allowed three goals.

He had missed 24 games earlier this season because of a left knee injury, so this may be related to that. Unfortunately, there was no update after the game on Neuvirth's condition.

Keith Kinkaid
Devils' Keith Kinkaid: Earns win with 35 saves
Keith Kinkaid, G, NJ
12:55 AM
News: Kinkaid made 35 saves in a 4-1 victory over the Flyers on Saturday night.

Cory Schneider was too sick to start, so Kinkaid played both Friday and Saturday. He looked sharp, stoning the Flyers' stars on several occasions. Kinkaid is a serviceable back-up on the ice, but his fantasy value is sorely limited.

Analysis: 

Robin Lehner
Sabres' Robin Lehner: Makes 36 saves in overtime win
Robin Lehner, G, BUF
12:45 AM
News: Lehner made 36 saves in a 3-2 overtime win over the Canadiens on Saturday night.

Lehner has won three of his last four starts and finally played like the so-called star he was supposed to be when the Sabres dropped a first-rounder to get him in trade. Maybe this effort will kickstart Lehner's game and his fantasy value.

Analysis: 

Mike Smith
Coyotes' Mike Smith: Makes 45 saves in victory
Mike Smith, G, ARI
12:45 AM
News: Smith turned aside 45 of 48 shots in a 5-3 victory over the Lightning on Sunday.

Arizona built a 5-1 lead, but Smith was under siege in the final stanza. He faced 24 shots in the third period alone. Smith has seen at least 35 shots in four of his last five starts, and unlike in November and December, he hasn't responded positively to all the work. He only owns a .898 save percentage this month. Hopefully, Saturday's effort gets him back on track.

Analysis: 

Andrei Vasilevskiy
Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Makes six saves in relief versus Arizona
Andrei Vasilevskiy, G, TB
12:40 AM
News: Vasilevskiy stopped all six shots he faced in relief of Ben Bishop during Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Coyotes.

Coming into Saturday, Vasilevskiy had lost six straight decisions, so perhaps getting some late work and making every save will give him a boost in confidence. But, he was hardly tested, as Tampa Bay outshot Arizona in the third period 24-6. Despite the losing streak, Vasilevskiy has a .933 save percentage in his last three appearances, but he will likely continue to split starts with Bishop.
