Marc-Andre Fleury allowed just two goals on 20 shots in Monday's 2-0 home setback against the Ducks.

It was a rare loss for the All-Star Fleury. It was also just the third time the expansion team was blanked this season, and the second time at home. The power outage was rather surprising for Vegas, as they came into the contest averaging 4.0 goals over their past four home outings, and 4.2 goals per game across the past seven overall.

Josh Manson picked up his fourth goal of the season in Monday's 2-0 road win against the Golden Knights.

Manson finished with a plsu-1 rating, one blocked shot and three hits over 20:13 of ice time. The veteran rearguard is normally known for the rough stuff and not so much for a deft scoring touch. His fantasy value remains limited to deeper pools at this point.
Feb 20 - 1:09 AM

Jakob Silfverberg posted a goal with a plus-1 rating in Monday's 2-0 win at Vegas.

Silfverberg also posted two shots on goal, two blocked shots and a hit across 19:01 of ice time. If you want to complain about something, he did lose his only faceoff attempt. The Swedish left winger snapped a six-game point drought and a nine-game goal skid dating back to Jan. 30 in Boston. He was promoted to the team's top scoring line in early February, but he failed to get on track. At this point he should remain reserved in all but the deepest of fantasy pools and hope that he can re-discover his scoring touch down the stretch.
Feb 20 - 1:07 AM

Rickard Rakell posted two assists with a plus-1 rating in Monday's 2-0 win at Vegas.

Rakell also got on the board with two shots on goal, a blocked shot and two hits while winning his only faceoff attempt across 17:22 of ice time. The Swede has managed six goals with nine assists and a plus-7 rating over the past 12 outings dating back to Jan. 28. His breakout campaign continues and he remains a must-start fantasy option across the board.

Ryan Miller was summoned to start the third period of Monday's game at Vegas after John Gibson went down with a lower-body injury.

Miller stopped all 20 shots he faced in the final period after Gibson was hit behind the net late in the second period and unable to return. The Ducks are scheduled to host the Stars on Wednesday night and it's probably a good bet that Miller will be called upon after their starter crumpled in pain and is considered day to day.

John Gibson stopped all 13 shots he faced in two periods at Vegas on Monday, but he was unable to return for the third period due to a lower-body injury.

Gibson was hit behind the net with about three seconds remaining in the second period by Reilly Smith of the Golden Knights. The team reported he would be doubtful to return, and Ryan Miller ended up preserving the 2-0 shutout with 20 saves in the final 20 minutes. For now, consider Gibson day to day.
Feb 20 - 12:58 AM

Carl Dahlstrom picked up an assist with a plus-1 rating over 16:52 of ice time in Monday's 3-1 loss against the Kings.

Dahlstrom offered a helping hand on Patrick Sharp's even-strength marker early in the third period, but that's all the offense Chicago was able to muster. The rearguard also chipped in with a blocked shot and a hit. He remains useful only in the very deepest of fantasy pools at this juncture, although he should see regular playing time now that Michal Kempny has been shipped to the Capitals.
Feb 20 - 12:25 AM

Patrick Sharp potted his seventh goal of the season early in the third period of Monday's 3-1 home loss to the Kings.

Sharp has been in and out of the press box as a healthy scratch several times since late December. It appears to have lit a fire under him lately, as he has a goal and three points over his past four outings. He'll likely need to do a little more to get out of the doghouse completely. For now, he remains useful only in the very deepest of fantasy pools unless he receives a change of scenery at the trade deadline.
Feb 20 - 12:23 AM

Anton Forsberg allowed three goals on 32 shots in Monday's 3-1 home loss against Los Angeles.

Forsberg got behind the 8-ball early with a pair of even-strength markers allowed, but he settled down in the final two periods with only one power-play goal given up on 17 shots. The goaltending has been substandard in the Windy City this season since Corey Crawford went down, and both Forsberg and Jeff Glass are only worthy of fantasy consideration as a No. 3 option at this point.
Feb 20 - 12:21 AM

Alec Martinez posted an assist with two blocked shots and a hit in Tuesday's 3-1 win at Chicago.

Martinez has managed five goals with 17 points and a plus-1 rating through 54 games. That's below-average from a fantasy perspective. However, he more than makes up for the lack of offense with his 68 hits and 160 blocked shots. In fact, he is second in the NHL in the blocks department.
Feb 20 - 12:15 AM

Andy Andreoff posted a goal with a plus-1 rating in Monday's 3-1 win at Chicago.

Andreoff also had his physicality on display, blocking three shots with three hits in his 14 shifts over 8:56 of ice time. Normally he is known for his fists and his hard-hitting style, not his offense. Despite an upturn in offensive stats lately, Andreoff remains useful only in the deepest of fantasy pools rewarding bad behavior.
Feb 20 - 12:12 AM

Derek Forbort was scoreless with a plus-1 rating in Monday's 3-1 win at Chicago, but he was able to racked up five blocked shots and a hit.

Forbort isn't terribly reliable for offensive statistics, potting just one goal with 13 points and a plus-15 rating through 57 games. However, he has managed an impressive 108 hits with 113 blocked shots, one of just 16 NHLers with at least 100 hits and blocks this season.
Feb 20 - 12:10 AM

Christian Folin was scoreless with a plus-1 rating Monday in Chicago, but he did record a game-high nine blocked shots with two hits.

The Swedish rearguard has shown limited offensive skills, but man is he willing to sacrifice his body. Folin has three goals with seven points and a plus-1 rating through 44 games, but he delivered 113 hits with 70 blocked shots. He is worth scooping up in deeper fantasy pools using hits and blocked shots, and he isn't a bad low-cost DFS option in tournaments using those stats.
Feb 20 - 12:08 AM

Torrey Mitchell opened the scoring with his fourth goal of the season Monday night in Chicago.

Mitchell has scored two goals over the past four games, rallying on the team's road odyssey. He was very effective in the faceoff circle, too, winning three of his four opportunities. Despite the uptick in goals lately, he remains nothing more than a depth option in larger fantasy pools.
Feb 20 - 12:03 AM

Michael Amadio picked up an assist with a plus-1 rating and a blocked shot over 10:22 of ice time in Monday's 3-1 win at Chicago.

Amadio has come alive in the rust belt, posting two goals and an assist over his past two games in Buffalo and Chicago. He has a plus-3 rating over the past two outings, too, but he remains useful only in the deepest of fantasy leagues until the regular points become the rule, not the exception.
