Islanders goalie Jaroslav Halak continued his splendid season with 26 saves in his team's 3-2 shootout victory over the Devils Monday night.
Halak is now 16-6-0 on the season. His goals-against average is 2.35. His save percentage is .917. His fantasy value is strong, even though there was a period there where we weren't sure.
