Robin Lehner blocked 36 shots and allowed two goals as the Sabres defeated the Canadiens 3-2 Saturday night.

Lehner recorded a save percentage of .947 in Saturday’s win and that was the ninth time in the past 11 games that he cracked the .900 mark. In those games, he has faced an average of 33.5 goals per game and that has allowed him to accumulate fantasy points. He also has earned a GAA of 3.00 or greater in six of those contests, which compares unfavorably to his season total of 2.54.

Carey Price faced 38 shots and gave up three goals Saturday night as the Canadiens lost 3-2 to the Sabres.

Price lost four of his previous five games with an average save percentage of .859, so there is some reason to be hopeful in his .921 Saturday. He had a GAA of .291 against the Sabres, which was his second best mark in the past six games.

Mike Smith faced a whopping 47 shots Saturday night and blocked all but three of them as the Coyotes beat the Lightning 5-3.

To say Smith performs well under pressure would be a bit of an understatement. This is the seventh time he has faced more than 40 shots. He has now won five of those contests and in the two games he lost, he gave up only two goals in each and took the game to overtime.

Patrick Eaves scored one goal and had an assist Saturday night as the Stars lost a 4-3 contest to the Capitals.

Eaves goal at the 6:47 mark of the second gave the Stars a 2-1 lead over the Caps and his assist to Jamie Benn at 15:59 in that period seemed to provide a little insurance. It would prove to be insufficient as the Capital scored three unanswered goals. Eaves now has 17 goals and 13 assists for the season.

Jay Beagle scored 19 seconds into overtime and capped a three-goal, come-from-behind surge as the Capitals beat the Stars 4-3 Saturday night.

The Stars were leading 3-1 at the end of the second when Alex Ovechkin and TJ Oshie scored in the third to tie the game. Both goals had assists from Matt Niskanen and Nicklas Backstrom. Niskanen also provided an assist on Beagle’s goal to give him three for the night. This was the second consecutive game in which Beagle scored a goal.

Radim Vrbata had a piece of four goals as the Coyotes beat the Lightning 5-3 Saturday night.

Vrbata scored a goal at the 10:19 mark of the first. He had three assists to Tobias Rieder, Michael Stone, and Martin Hanzal. With four points, he lifted his total to 33 and pads his lead over Oliver Ekman-Larsson who had only one assist Saturday night for a total of 25 points for the season.

Phillip Danault scored his 10th goal of the season and Artturi Lehkonen got his 11th as the Canadiens lost 3-2 to the Sabres Saturday night.

Both shooters were experiencing five-game streaks without a goal. Danault and Lehkonen each scored last against the Jets January 11. Danault has been a little more productive in the intervening games with three assists, however, to Lehkonen’s one.

Frederik Andersen had a save percentage of .926 against the Senators Saturday night, but the Leafs lost the 3-2 game.

Andersen gave up a goal in the first to Bobby Ryan in the first and Mike Hoffman in the third, but he was strong enough to keep the game tied through overtime. Andersen gave up a shootout goal to Ryan in the first round and Tom Pyatt in the fourth.
Jan 21 - 10:40 PM

Mike Condon made 31 saves on 33 shots Saturday night as the Senators beat the Maple Leafs 3-2.

Condon earned his third consecutive road win with a save percentage of .939. This came on the heels of a 42-shot shutout to give him 73 saves in his last two games. Apparently he saved his energy against the Blues Tuesday because he faced only 23 shots in that contest.
Jan 21 - 10:35 PM

Tyler Bozak scored his 12th goal of the season at the 7:31 mark of the second as the Maple Leafs lost 3-2 to the Senators.

Bozak has been hot since the calendar turned to 2017. Five of his 12 goals this season have come in the last seven games. His streak kicked off with one goal and an assist again the Devils January 6. Bozak closed out the season strong as well with a goal December 29 against the Lightning.
Jan 21 - 10:29 PM

Tom Pyatt beat Frederik Andersen in the fourth round of the shootout to lift the Senators to a 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs Saturday night.

Pyatt gave the Sens the win, but he did not add to any significant stats. He remains at six goals and seven assists for the season. Notably he did not earn any shots on goal before the shootout and that number stays at 54.
Jan 21 - 10:23 PM

Keith Kinkaid faced 36 shots and let only one get past him as the Devils beat the Flyers 4-1 Saturday night.

Kinkaid has been an all-or-nothing goalie in recent games. His last six efforts have showcased three wins with save percentages greater than .964—including Saturday night’s .972 against Philly. His other three games ended with losses and save percentages below the .900 mark.
Jan 21 - 10:16 PM

Travis Konecny scored the only goal for the Flyers Saturday night as they lost a 4-1 contest to the Devils.

This is only Konecny’s eighth goal of the season, but he has been fantasy relevant in recent games with four of these coming in the past nine events. Notably, he has not scored an assist in this period despite accumulating 14 assists and 22 points for the season.
Jan 21 - 10:09 PM

Peter Budaj gave up three goals on 35 shots Saturday night as the Kings lost 4-2 to the Islanders.

This was only the second time in his last 13 games that Budaj faced more than 30 shots. The last time he was this busy, he lost a 3-1 contest to Edmonton December 29. In both contests, he had a save percentage greater than .900. Tonight’s effort produced a .914 which compares favorably to his season average of .917.
Jan 21 - 10:02 PM

Zach Bogosian scored at the 1:48 mark of overtime to give the Sabres a 3-2 win over the Canadiens Saturday night.

This was Bogosian’s first goal of the season and only his fourth point. He was joined fellow defenseman Cody Franson for two of the three Sabre goals. While Bogosian’s score was unexpected, it came with an assist from Evander Kane and Ryan O’Reilly, each of whom had two during the night.
