Chris Tierney scored two goals in a 5-4 overtime win against the Rangers Tuesday night.

Tierney scored his first goal of the night midway through the second period on an unassisted breakaway. His second came at the end of the third to force overtime. Tierney’s two goals Tuesday night brings him to nine, the best in his three seasons with Sharks. This was his first point in six games; his last came on March 12 against Dallas.

Brock Boeser scored the lone goal for Vancouver in a 4-1 loss to Anaheim Tuesday night.

Boeser snagged his second goal in only his third NHL start. His first came on March 25 in a 4-2 win against Minnesota. Boeser made three shots on goal against Anaheim in 15:51 of ice time.

J.T. Miller earned two goals Tuesday night as the Rangers lost a 5-4 contest to the Sharks.

Miller now has 22 goals for the season, but he was coming off a four-game pointless streak. He now has four multi-goal and 12 multi-point games this year, but one has to scroll back to February 9 for the last such occurrence.

Martin Jones gave up four goals Tuesday night on 28 shots, but his effort was enough to give the Sharks a 5-4 win.

Jones earned the win, but he did not do much to restore fantasy players’ confidence. He was coming off a 7-2 loss to the Predators Saturday night. Without any relief, he was credited with all seven goals against, so there is liable to be some reluctance to start him the next time he skates into crease.
Mar 29 - 1:40 AM

Henrik Lundqvist faced 35 shots Tuesday night and gave up five goals as the Rangers lost 5-4 to the Sharks in overtime.

Lundqvist certainly wanted the win, but a sense of desperation was lacking as the Rangers locked in their spot in the playoffs for the seventh consecutive year with the regulation tie. In his last 10 games, Lundqvist has accumulated a record of 4-4-2, but his save percentage has been respectable with a .911.

Ryan Miller gave up four goals Tuesday night as the Canucks lost 4-1 to the Ducks.

Miller gave up too many goals to be good fantasy value, but the loss was not entirely his fault. He faced 39 shots, which gave him a respectable save percentage of .897. This was the 12th time this season that he faced 39 or more shots. He has now lost half of those.
Mar 29 - 1:06 AM

Jonathan Bernier made 34 saves and let one puck get past him as the Ducks downed the Canucks 4-1 Tuesday.

Bernier has two shutouts so far, but this was his third-best save percentage of the season. He logged a .971 against the Sharks on March 18 and while that game was a virtual tie for Tuesday’s contest, he faced one fewer shot on goal. Bernier entered the night with a season-long save percentage of .917 and a GAA of 2.47. He improved both stats significantly with this win.
Mar 29 - 12:52 AM

Nick Ritchie scored one goal and had one assist Tuesday night as the Ducks beat the Canucks 4-1.

This is Ritchie’s fourth multi-point game of the season and his first since February 22. Notably, all three of his previous multi-point games came with two assists and no goals. In the 11 games since then, he has not exactly been burning up the ice with only two goals and two assists on the strength of 22 shots.
Mar 29 - 12:43 AM

Jonathan Quick blocked 27 of 29 shots in a 2-1 loss to Edmonton Tuesday night.

Quick suffered his third decision loss in a row during a four-game losing streak for his team. In each loss, he let in two goals. Since Quick returned in February he stands with a record of 5-4-1. He ended the night with a save percentage of .931, slightly higher than his season average of .920.
Mar 29 - 12:10 AM

Cam Talbot faced 35 shots and stopped all but one as the Oilers defeated the Kings 2-1 Tuesday night.

Talbot was playing like a goalie who wanted the victory that clinched a playoff berth. The rival Kings kept the pressure on all night with 11 shots in the first, 13 in the second, and 11 in the third. The action was focused on Talbot’s end of the rink for most of the night with the Oilers getting outshot in the first two periods. Finally in the third, they mounted a significant offense with a margin of 14 SOGs to 11. That lifts Talbot to 37-21-8 for the season.
Mar 29 - 12:08 AM

Jarome Iginla scored the only Kings goal as they lost 2-1 to the Oilers Tuesday night.

Iginla’s goal was unassisted and as it turned out, it was also unaided as the team failed to support his effort with another. This snapped a three-game pointless streak during which he has a -1 rating. In fact, Iginla has only had one positive +/- rating in his last 13 games.
Mar 28 - 11:59 PM

Eric Gryba scored the game winning goal at the 7:03 mark of the second and helped the Oilers to a 2-1 victory over the Kings Tuesday night.

That was only Gryba’s second goal of the season, but it was one of the most important ones for the team this year. His game winning goal clinched a playoff berth for the Oilers. Gryba was an improbable hero. He only other goal this season came December 29 and he has not even had an assist in his last seven games.
Mar 28 - 11:54 PM

Devan Dubnyk allowed five goals on 20 shots in Tuesday's 5-4 OT loss to the Capitals.

Three of Washington's five goals were scored on the power play, but that doesn't take away from the fact that Dubnyk had a rough night. The Wild were able to score two late goals to force overtime, but they eventually gave up a goal to T.J. Oshie in the extra frame. Dubnyk has now lost seven of his last eight games, which is concerning considering the playoffs are right around the corner. He has a 37-19-5 record with a 2.23 goals-against-average and a .924 save percentage.
Mar 28 - 11:48 PM

Braden Holtby allowed four goals on 30 shots in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Minnesota Wild.

The Capitals were seemingly in control of the game, as they were ahead 4-2 with less than five minutes to play, but the Wild responded by scoring twice to even the score. In overtime, it was T.J. Oshie who gave the Caps the win. The win improves Holtby's record to 40-11-6 this season. It's the third consecutive 40-win season for the Caps starting netminder. He'll enter his next start with a 2.04 goals-against-average and a .926 save percentage.
