Brian Elliott stopped 23 of 24 shots in Calgary's 4-1 win over the St. Louis Blues.
Elliott did extremely well in his first matchup against his former team. Don't look now, but after a poor start, Elliott has seemingly turned things around. He and the Flames have won back-to-back games on the road against Chicago and St. Louis. The 31-year-old's fantasy stock is on the rise. He has a 2-3-0 record with a 3.37 goals-against-average and an .882 save percentage in 2016-17. Elliott's given up just three goals in his last two starts.
Frederik Andersen allowed seven goals on 24 shots in Toronto's 7-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.
There's been a lot of talk about Andersen's underwhelming play in Toronto these days and this performance certainly won't help. There's no doubt that the 27-year-old has been disappointing so far, but we knew that going from Anaheim to Toronto wasn't going to be easy. Andersen is 1-1-3 with a 4.29 goals-against-average and a .851 save percentage in 2016-17. He hasn't been good, but the Maple Leafs aren't exactly perfect in their own zone.
Ben Bishop stopped 40 of 43 shots in Tampa's 7-3 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The Lightning gave Bishop plenty of run-support, as they jumped out to a 4-0 lead. At one point, Bishop took a puck off the mask and stayed down. He was able to continue, but did lose some teeth. The win improves his record to 3-1-0 this season. He has a 3.51 goals-against-average and a .885 save percentage. Expect those numbers to get better as the season goes on.
Auston Matthews scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The Leafs did themselves no favors by going down 4-0. They managed to cut the deficit to 5-3 in the third period, but that's as close as they would come to tying the game. Matthews has looked fantastic in his first few games as an NHLer. The 19-year-old already has six goals and 10 points in six games. He's clearly the favorite to win the Calder Trophy (rookie of the year) and he needs to be owned in all fantasy formats.
Steven Stamkos scored two goals and added two assists in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The Bolts were talking about improving their effort in the beginning of games and they responded in a big way. Stamkos scored both of his goals in the first period. He also picked up primary assists on goals by Victor Hedman and Nikita Kucherov in the second and third periods respectively. Stamkos finished the game with a plus-4 rating, three shots on goal and two hits in 16:14 of ice time. The Lightning captain has five goals and four assists in six games in 2016-17. He continues to be one of the elite point producers in the NHL.
Cam Ward allowed four goals on 25 shots in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.
Ward and Eddie Lack have split the first six games of the year. Ward's performances haven't exactly stuck out, as he owns an 0-2-1 record with a 4.03 goals-against-average and a .848 save percentage this season. He's allowed three, four and five goals in his three starts. He's not a very good fantasy option right now.
Petr Mrazek stopped 29 of 31 shots in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.
Mrazek has now won three straight games, while the Wings have won five in a row as a team. Mrazek has a 3-2-0 record with a 2.82 goals-against-average and a .935 save percentage. Despite a couple of strong performances from backup goalie Jimmy Howard, Mrazek remains the starting goaltender.
Jordan Staal found the back of the net on Tuesday night.
Unfortunately for Carolina, they still dropped a 4-2 decision to the Red Wings. Staal got the 'Canes on the board at the 6:43 mark of the second period and cut the Wings lead to 3-1 in the process. Staal has three goals in six games this season. Victor Rask also scored for Carolina.
