Flyers' Michal Neuvirth: Allows four tallies in loss to Caps

News: Neuvirth saved just 25 of 29 shots during Wednesday's loss to Washington.

Facing Washington's juggernaut offense is never a friendly fantasy situation, and relying on Neuvirth was ill-advised Wednesday. He has grabbed a stranglehold of the Philly crease by allowing two goals or fewer in seven of his previous eight outings, but his .911 save percentage during the stretch speaks more to the Flyers limiting opponents than Neuvirth's play. Expect Steve Mason to receive another look sooner than later, and neither goalie should be considered a reliable fantasy option at this stage of the game.

Braden Holtby
Capitals' Braden Holtby: Turns in another tidy 33-save outing
Braden Holtby, G, WAS
12:30 AM
News: Holtby saved 33 of 34 shots during Wednesday's win over Philadelphia.

There isn't much to say about Holtby at this point of the game. He's been an elite goalie for the past three seasons and is currently in the midst of the best campaign of the stretch. Wednesday's victory was his 30th win of the season, and he entered the contest with a rock-solid .926 save percentage and 2.01 GAA. Continue to view Holtby as a set-and forget goalie in seasonal leagues and a top-tier option that's usually worth spending up for in daily contests.

Oilers' Cam Talbot: Wins fourth straight start

News: Talbot saved 31 of 34 shots during Wednesday's win over Florida.

Talbot entered Wednesday's contest with a high-end 31-16-7 record, .921 save percentage, 2.35 GAA and five shutouts. He's contributing rock-solid No. 1 goalie numbers in all seasonal settings, and he's also morphing into a consistent and reliable option in daily contests when Edmonton faces a favorable matchup. His hefty workload also mitigates the odd rough outing. Just note that Edmonton is in tough with an upcoming three-game road trip through Washington, Nashville and St. Louis.

James Reimer
Panthers' James Reimer: Allows four goals in loss to Oilers
James Reimer, G, FLA
2/22/2017
News: Reimer saved 31 of 34 shots during Wednesday's loss to Edmonton.

The Oilers were run out of the rink 4-1 by Tampa Bay on Tuesday, and Florida had won five consecutive games, so this had the makings of a tough spot for the Panthers and Reimer. The veteran goalie had won five of his past six starts with a .948 save percentage and 1.44 GAA, so he deserve a bit of a pass for Wednesday's underwhelming performance. However, it's likely Roberto Luongo draws the start against Calgary on Friday.

John Gibson
Ducks' John Gibson: Out Wednesday

News: Gibson is day-to-day with a lower-body injury and won't dress for Wednesday's game against the Bruins.

With Gibson unavailable, the Ducks were forced to recall goaltender Jhonas Enroth from AHL San Diego on Wednesday, who will serve as Jonathan Bernier's backup against the Bruins. The severity of Gibson's ailment remains unclear, but the American netminder's day-to-day label suggests he could be ready to return to action as soon as Saturday against the Kings.

Ducks' Jonathan Bernier: In goal Wednesday against Boston

News: Bernier will start between the pipes in Wednesday's home game against the Bruins, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

Bernier has been passable in limited action this season, compiling an 8-5-2 record while registering a 2.93 GAA and .901 save percentage over 22 appearances. The 28-year-old backstop will look to pick up his ninth win of the campaign in a home matchup with a Bruins club that's 15-10-6 on the road this season.

Ducks' Jhonas Enroth: Promoted to big club Wednesday

News: The Ducks recalled Enroth from AHL San Diego on Wednesday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

John Gibson is reportedly day-to-day with a lower-body injury and won't dress for Wednesday's contest, so Enroth will serve as Jonathan Bernier's backup against the Bruins. The 28-year-old backstop will likely head back to the minors as soon as Gibson is cleared to play.

Jonathan Quick
Kings' Jonathan Quick: Could be closer to return
Jonathan Quick, G, LA
2/22/2017
News: Quick (groin) continues to practice and could be closer to a return after the Kings placed Jeff Zatkoff on waivers Wednesday.

While the team has not said anything regarding an accelerated return date for Quick, one has to think that Zatkoff's removal from the active lineup is a sign that Quick could be back sooner rather than later. Mid-March is still the expected return period for the American goalie, but don't be surprised if he's cleared to play earlier than that.

Marek Langhamer
Coyotes' Marek Langhamer: Headed back to minors
Marek Langhamer, G, ARI
2/22/2017
News: Langhamer was reassigned to AHL Tucson on Wednesday.

With Louis Domingue ready to return as the regular backup, Langhamer will head back to the minors to see some more ice time. The only action that the 22-year-old saw with the big club came in Monday's game against the Ducks when Mike Smith was pulled from the game by a concussion spotter. Langhamer stopped seven out of eight shots to secure the win for the Coyotes.

Brian Elliott
Flames' Brian Elliott: Tending twine Thursday

News: Elliott will be between the posts for Thursday night's road game against the Lightning.

After a rocky start to the season, Elliott has seemingly completely reclaimed the starting role and will make his fifth consecutive start Thursday. Even when the 31-year-old isn't on top of his game, the hot Flames offense is able to bail him out on occasion, as evidenced when they claimed victory from the jaws of defeat Tuesday. Elliott will look to make it two in a row against a resilient Tampa Bay squad that averages 2.73 goals per game.
