Jesper Fast had an assist in a 4-1 loss to the Islanders.

That gives Fast three goals and seven points in 32 contests this season. He might have some fantasy value in a couple seasons, but he's not worth owning in standard leagues at the moment.

Tanner Glass (upper body) was back in the lineup on Tuesday January 27.

Glass wasn't in the lineup for New York's previous two matches. He amassed 14 penalty minutes and posted one shot in 9:15 of ice time versus the Islanders in his return.

Carl Hagelin registered the lone Rangers goal in a 4-1 loss to the Islanders Tuesday night.

Hagelin registered a power-play marker at 19:52 of the third period and although the result of the game had already been decided, he did manage to ruin Jaroslav Halak's shutout bid. Jesper Fast and Dominic Moore picked up assists on the lone marker.
Jan 27 - 10:52 PM

Henrik Lundqvist struggled on Tuesday as he allowed four goals on 38 shots in a 4-1 loss to the New York Islanders.

Lundqvist entered the All-Star Break having won seven of his last eight starts, but he clearly didn't carry that strong play over to the second half. The loss drops his record to 23-10-3, while his GAA stands at 2.30 and his save percentage is an even .920.

Lee Stempniak and John Moore will be healthy scratches Tuesday night against the New York Islanders.

Stempniak has just six goals and 14 points on the season, while Moore has just three points. Meaning neither have much fantasy value to speak of.

Matt Hunwick will play along side of Kevin Klein to form the New York Rangers' third defensive unit, as John Moore takes a seat Tuesday night against the New York Islanders.

In 60 combined games, Moore and Hunwick have put forth just a dozen points. All assists. With little else to show for their efforts, one cannot advice you include either defender on your roster.

Henrik Lundqvist will get the start Tuesday night against the New York Islanders.

The King has won seven of his last eight starts and comes in with a 23-9-3 record, a 2.25 GAA and a .921 save percentage. That's pretty darn good. Plus, you know he's seeking redemption for his poor start two weeks ago against his Long Island rival, when he allowed three goals on 32 shots in an embarrassing 3-0 loss.

Rick Nash shrugged off the booing he received during the All-Star Game in Columbus.

"That's how it's been for the last three years," Nash said, "so I expected it." Nash used to be the face of the Blue Jackets' franchise, but the fact that he demanded a trade guaranteed that he would be leaving on poor terms. He ended up on Team Toews against the hometown favorites Team Foligno. Nash scored twice to help Toews earn a 17-12 victory.

Rick Nash has the fewest power-play points (eight) among the top-20 point producers in the NHL.

The Rangers winger has 28 goals and 15 assists this season, with four of each coming with the man advantage. Notable because even some think Nash will slow down in the second half, he hasn’t exactly lit the world on fire on the power play, where he’s averaging 2:54 per game.

Tyler Seguin and Rick Nash are currently tie for the NHL lead in goals with 28.

Nash is on a better pace, collecting those 28 tallies in 44 games (compared to Seguin doing so in 46). Seguin is taking more SOG, as he has 192 to Nash's 162. As of this writing, 11 players are over 20 goals in 2014-15.

Coach Alain Vigneault came into camp with a 'purpose' this season.

Nash has been a huge force in 2014-15 for the Rangers and is tied for the NHL lead with Tyler Seguin as both have 28 goals. Nash apparently ran a lot during the summer and added some cardio and as a result came into camp in terrific shape. The results speak for themselves.

Martin St. Louis registered an assist in a 3-2 overtime win Tuesday night.

St. Louis will enter the All-Star break on a three-game point streak. He has 14 goals and 36 points in 44 contests in 2014-15.
Jan 21 - 11:09 AM

Derek Stepan had an assist in a 3-2 overtime win against Ottawa.

Stepan has recorded at least a point in three straight games. He has eight goals and 32 points in 31 contests in 2014-15.
Jan 21 - 11:07 AM

Chris Kreider scored his 10th goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win against Ottawa.

The 10 goals may not be an exceptional total, but Kreider is a well-rounded fantasy commodity thanks to a plus-12 rating, 73 penalty minutes and 91 shots on goal. Carl Hagelin and Kevin Hayes also scored for the Blueshirts in the victory.
Jan 20 - 10:00 PM

Henrik Lundqvist turned aside 33 of 35 shots Tuesday night to secure a 3-2 overtime win against the Senators.

King Henrik has solidified his standing as one of the top fantasy netminders in the game over the past month and has now won seven of his past eight starts to improve his record to 23-9-3. His GAA now stands at 2.25 while his save percentage is .921.
