Look for Semyon Varlamov to get the start Sunday afternoon when the Avalanche face off against the Sabres.

This will be an interesting game as it will pit former Avs' star Ryan O'Reilly against Patrick Roy's charges. Varlamov is coming off a brilliant 41-save effort in which he stole a 3-2 shootout from the Red Wings. For the season Varlamov boasts a 21-14-3 record with a 2.64 GAA and .917 SP.

Semyon Varlamov stopped 41 of 43 shots in Friday's 3-2 shootout win over the Detroit Red Wings.

The 27-year-old has now won back-to-back starts over Ottawa and Detroit. Varlamov has 21-14-3 record with a 2.64 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage in 39 games this season. He's had several moments of brilliance this year, but he's also had some tougher moments. He's a high risk, high reward kind of fantasy option going forward.

Matt Duchene scored a goal in Friday's 3-2 shootout win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Duchene opened the scoring at the 9:27 mark of the first period. The 25-year-old is in the middle of a cold stretch. He has just two goals in his last six games. The 25-year-old has 25 goals and 44 points in 58 games this season. He's worth owning in all fantasy leagues.

Zach Redmond and Nate Guenin will both be scratched from Friday's match with Detroit.

Unfortunately there simply isnt' much fantasy value to speak of here. The two defenders have posted just four points in 57 combined games, all Redmond's.

Nate Guenin has been placed on waivers by the Colorado Avalanche.

Guenin successfully cleared waivers in mid-January, but Colorado didn't send him to the minors at that time. However, the Avalanche also haven't been using him, so it's not surprising to see Guenin's name end up back on the waiver list.

He recorded his eighth goal of the season into a empty cage to seal the win. Comeau also assisted on a power-play goal by Jarome Iginla to give him 26 points in 56 games. He has meshed well with Gabriel Landeskog and Carl Soderberg in 2015-16.
