John Gibson turned aside 23 of 24 shots in a 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings.

It was an easier day at the office for Gibson who only had to stop five shots through the first period. He has now won three straight games for the first time this season, improving his record to 16-13-5 with a 2.59 goals against average and a .923 save percentage. The 24-year-old netminder makes for an interesting buy candidate over the second half of the season now that the Ducks are getting healthier.

Jonathan Quick allowed two goals on 31 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Quick appeared to have eyes behind the back of his head to somehow reach back and cover up the puck on what would have been a sure goal. Unfortunately, his heroics weren't enough as he has now lost five straight. The veteran goaltender is now one more loss shy of matching his season-high of six straight losses that occurred between Nov. 9-22. His record drops to 19-16-2 with a 2.34 goals against average and a .924 save percentage.

Adam Henrique scored his 11th goal of the season in a 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings.

Henrique took advantage of a goal mouth scramble to poke home the loose puck and open the scoring just over two minutes into the third period. After a hot start with his new club, it's just his third point in his last 13th game, bringing his total for the season to 25 in 46 games. If you're still holding onto him, he can be safely dropped in all formats. Ryan Kesler also scored in the win.

Alex Iafallo scored a goal in a 2-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Iafallo put in a great effort tonight, causing havoc on several shifts and was rewarded with a goal off a rebound from Jake Muzzin's point shot. It's Iafallo's third goal of the year, bringing the undrafted free-agent's point tally to 13 in 44 games. Anze Kopitar also picked up an assist on the Kings' only goal.
Jan 20 - 12:43 AM

Malcolm Subban allowed four goals on 26 shots in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Florida Panthers.

Even though they were able to force overtime, Subban and the Golden Knights never held the lead on Friday night. The loss drops the 24-year-old's record to 11-2-1 on the season. He'll head into his next outing with a 2.49 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage. As long as Marc-Andre Fleury's healthy, Subban won't have any value in standard fantasy leagues.
Jan 19 - 11:01 PM

James Reimer allowed three goals on 36 shots in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Vegas Golden Knights.

The game went to overtime, but the Panthers never trailed in this one. Even though he's given up three goals or more in three straight games, Reimer has still won two of his last three outings. The Panthers goalie now has a 13-12-5 record with a 3.04 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage this season.
Jan 19 - 10:56 PM

William Karlsson scored a goal in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Florida Panthers.

Karlsson has arguably been the biggest surprise of the season in the entire NHL so far. His goal at the 6:54 mark of the second period tied the game at two. Karlsson has now found the back of the net eight times in his last nine games. The 24-year-old has 25 goals and 39 points in 45 games this season. His previous career high was nine goals (2015-16 with Columbus). David Perron and James Neal also scored for the Golden Knights in loss.
Jan 19 - 10:38 PM

Aleksander Barkov picked up a goal and two assists in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Vegas Golden Knights.

Barkov's shorthanded goal in the first period gave the Panthers a 2-1 lead at the time. The Panthers forward also registered the primary assist on Evgenii Dadonov's go-ahead tally (3-2) in the third frame. In overtime, Barkov was denied on a beautiful breakaway attempt, but he ended up collecting the primary assist when Aaron Ekblad scored the game-winning goal just a few seconds later. He finished the game with a plus-2 rating, five shots on goal and two blocked shots in 19:39 of ice time. The 22-year-old now has 15 goals and 43 points in 43 games this season.
Jan 19 - 10:34 PM

Philipp Grubauer allowed two goals on 25 shots in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

Grubauer was solid this evening, but luck was on his side, as the Canadiens hit the post multiple times. This was his first regulation loss since Nov. 16 (eight games). Grubauer has a 4-6-3 record with a 2.56 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage this season. On a positive note, he's given up two goals or fewer in three of his last four games.
Jan 19 - 10:26 PM

Antti Niemi turned aside 24 of 26 shots in Friday's 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals.

The win was Niemi's first as a Montreal Canadien and his first of the season. The veteran came up with a couple of big saves late in the game to preserve Montreal's slim lead. Niemi owns a 1-5-1 record with a 4.44 goals-against-average and a .871 save percentage this season. Even though he won tonight, Niemi still doesn't need to be owned in any fantasy format.
Jan 19 - 10:23 PM

John Carlson scored a power play goal in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

Carlson's perfect blast from the point tied the game at one in the second period. The Capitals defender finished the night with a minus-1 rating, eight shots on goal and a blocked shot in 29:11 of ice time. Carlson now has accumulated nine points in his last nine contests. He's up to six goals and 36 points in 47 games. He'll continue to be a strong fantasy option in all fantasy formats. Lars Eller also found the back of the net for the Capitals on Friday night.
Jan 19 - 10:18 PM

Max Pacioretty scored two goals and an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals.

Pacioretty opened the scoring with a power play goal at the 7:08 mark of the second period. He then gave the Canadiens a 3-1 lead with an empty-netter at the 18:42 mark of the third frame (that proved to be the game-winning goal). Pacioretty also registered the primary assist on Paul Byron's tally in the third frame. After going through a long slump, the Canadiens captain has certainly come alive over the last few games. Pacioretty has now found the back of the net six times in his last six contests. He's up to 14 goals and 28 points in 46 games this season.
Jan 19 - 10:14 PM

Andy Andreoff will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

This will be the second straight game that he watches from the press box. Andreoff has two goals and two assists in 29 games this season. Jonny Brodzinski and Paul Ladue will also serve as healthy scratches in this one.

Jared Boll will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the Los Angeles Kings.

Boll has suited up in just 10 games this season. He has one goal and 16 penalty minutes this season. Korbinian Holzer and Derek Grant will also watch the game from the press box. None of these three players will have fantasy value going forward.

Gibson has a 15-13-5 record with a 2.64 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage this season. The Ducks netminder has won back-to-back games.
