Mike Condon blocked 35 of 37 shots Wednesday night as the Ottawa Senators defeated the San Jose Sharks 4-2.

The reliever was playing in only his seventh game with the Senators after moving over from the Nashville Predators in early November and he has heated up the ice. In six complete games and a short stint against the Penguins on Monday night, he has recorded a save percentage of .945. On Wednesday, he logged a .946 and has been busy enough in most contests to bank a lot of points.

Brent Burns tied Wednesday night’s competition at the 6:30 minute mark of the third period, but two unanswered goals shifted to momentum to give the Ottawa Senators a 4-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks.

The defenseman Burns recorded five shots on goal in the game, which was second only to the forward Joe Pavelski. Burns has proved that the best defense is a good offence 23 times this season with his 11th goal scored Wednesday night and 12 prior assists.

Teuvo Teravainen scored the first and last goal of the night for the Carolina Hurricanes, but it was not enough to stem a 6-5 shootout loss to the Anaheim Ducks Wednesday night.

Teravainen’s first goal of the contest came at the 19:22 minute mark of the first and it tied the game at the time. His second goal was scored at 9:21 and lifted the Canes to a two-point advantage, but he was answered by Nick Ritchie and Corey Perry. This pair of goals snapped an eight-game span in which he failed to score a single point. His last goal came nine games ago on November 18th, so players could be forgiven if he was not on their roster.

John Gibson will be credited with a 6-5 victory by the Anaheim Ducks over the Carolina Hurricanes, but he gave up five goals on 34 shots Wednesday night.

That many goals against the Ducks’ netminder minimized his effectiveness as a fantasy asset. This was the first time in the past four games that he failed to crack the .900 mark, however, recording only an .853 Wednesday night. Owners might want to keep him on their radar screen.
Dec 8 - 1:59 AM

Cam Ward had a save percentage of only .838 as the Carolina Hurricanes lost 6-5 in a shootout overtime against the Anaheim Ducks Wednesday night.

Ward got his workout, however; he faced 38 shots including four in overtime before letting two pucks slip past in the shootout. Ward has now lost five of his last six games. This streak was interrupted only momentarily by a shutout over the Lightning on Sunday. Most of Ward’s losses have been in low scoring affairs and this five-goal effort against him should be viewed as an anomaly.
Dec 8 - 1:54 AM

Corey Perry scored at the 17:32 minute to tie the Carolina Hurricanes late in the third in what eventually became a 6-5 win by the Anaheim Ducks Wednesday night.

Immediately after doing so, Perry heaved a huge sigh of relief. His goal is only the fifth of the season and it snapped an 18-game streak in which he failed to find the back of the net. He has remained fantasy relevant, however, with 14 assists in that same span of events.
Dec 8 - 1:45 AM

Ondrej Kase slipped one past Cam Ward in the fourth round of a shootout to hand the Anaheim Ducks a 6-5 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes Wednesday night.

Kase also had an assist Wednesday night on a goal by Stefan Noesen. It was Kase’s third assist of the season and Noesen’s first goal. Kase has only four points for the season and was not on many radar screens, but he was certainly more popular than Noesen who made only his third career start. In just 7:41 minutes of ice time, he scored his first career goal in the NHL.
Dec 8 - 1:38 AM

Martin Jones faced only 16 shots Wednesday night and let three get past him as the San Jose Sharks lost a 4-2 contest to the Ottawa Senators.

The Sharks defense did their part to limit the shooting, but it was not enough as the goalie recorded only a .813 save percentage. Jones faced only six goals in the first period and five each in the second and third, but the backbreaker came very late in the third when he was beaten by Chris Kelly with just over a minute remaining. This snapped a three-game winning streak for Jones in which he logged a save percentage of .947 or greater.
Dec 8 - 1:27 AM

Chris Kelly scored the game winning goal in a 4-2 victory of the Ottawa Senators over the San Jose Sharks Wednesday night.

Kelly’s goal came at the 18:54 mark and was quickly followed by an insurance goal by Jean-Gabriel Pageau into an empty net. Ottawa held a two-goal advantage entering the second period—and then gave up two unanswered. Kelly spent only 12:08 minutes on ice to score just his second goal of the season with the first coming well back in mid-October.
Dec 8 - 1:20 AM

Tuukka Rask allowed four goals on 20 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 OT loss to the Washington Capitals.

Rask has been fantastic this season, but this was far from his best outing of the year. The Capitals led 3-0 in the second period, but the Bruins got three unanswered goals from Dominic Moore, David Pastrnak and Colin Miller to tie the game. In overtime, it was Nicklas Backstrom that gave the Caps the win. Rask now has a 14-4-2 record with a 1.79 goals-against-average and a .933 save percentage.
Dec 7 - 11:53 PM

Braden Holtby stopped 31 of 34 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Boston Bruins.

The Caps were in complete control of the game early, as they jumped out to a 3-0 lead. But the Bruins eventually woke up, as they scored three straight goals in the second and third period to force OT. Nicklas Backstrom scored the game-winning goal for Washington. Holtby has now won back-to-back outings. He has a 12-6-2 record with a 2.18 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage this season.
Dec 7 - 11:50 PM

David Pastrnak scored a goal in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals.

The Bruins found themselves down 3-0 in the second period, but battled back to tie the game at three. Dominic Moore scored their first goal followed by Pastrnak and Colin Miller. Pastrnak continues to impress this season. He now has 16 goals and 22 points in 22 games. He's on pace to score 56 goals this season, but the odds of him hitting that number are slim. Still, he's been excellent. He's a must-start in all fantasy leagues.
Dec 7 - 11:41 PM

Justin Williams scored a pair of goals in Wednesday's 4-3 OT win over the Boston Bruins.

Williams scored the first two goals of the game in the first period. Daniel Winnik eventually gave Washington a 3-0 lead, but the Bruins managed to score three unanswered goals to force OT. In the extra frame, it was Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom that scored the game-winner. The offensive output doubled Williams' goal total for the season. The veteran winger has four goals and three assists in 25 games this season. Those numbers are disappointing by his standards.
Dec 7 - 11:38 PM

Frederik Andersen allowed three goals on 20 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild.

The Leafs goalie has now dropped back-to-back decisions and he's come out on the losing end in four of his last six games. He'll enter his next start with a 10-7-4 record, a 2.87 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage. He's a middle of the pack fantasy option at his position right now.
Dec 7 - 11:26 PM

Devan Dubnyk stopped 35 of 37 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Wild spotted Dubnyk a 2-0 lead and they never looked back. He hasn't suffered a regulation loss since Nov. 19 and he has a 4-0-2 record in his last six outings. Dubnyk has an 11-6-3 record with a 1.65 goals-against-average and a .946 save percentage this season. Through two months, he's definitely in the Vezina Trophy conversation.
