Andrei Vasilevskiy is expected to start Monday night against Ottawa.

Tyler Johnson appears to be getting his groove back.

"I feel good. I still think there is room for improvement, but I feel my body is feeling as good as it has all season," Johnson said.

He has looked more like his speedy self in two games following the All-Star break and he has collected two goals and two assists over those matches.
Feb 8 - 11:16 AM

Alex Killorn notched a goal and an assist in a 6-3 win against Pittsburgh.

He has nine goals and 25 points in 50 games this year, but playing with Nikita Kucherov and Tyler Johnson should give him more opportunities to generate offense.

Feb 5 - 10:53 PM

Jonathan Marchessault and Matt Carle will be scratched Friday night against Pittsburgh.

While Carle no longer represents any potential fantasy value, Marchessault has at least potted six goals and 11 points during his 27 games this season. He's shooting at 12.8% with 34 hits as well, so he's worth a plug if ever needed.
Feb 5 - 6:52 PM

Ben Bishop was the first goalie off the ice Friday morning.

That likely means Bishop will start against the Pittsburgh Penguins. He has a 1.99 GAA and .927 save percentage in 38 contests this season.

J.T. Brown scored his fifth goal of 2015-16 in Wednesday's win against Detroit.

Feb 4 - 8:37 AM

Tyler Johnson scored his sixth goal of the year in Wednesday's 3-1 win against Detroit.

He scored his first power-play tally in 2015-16 during the contest. Johnson has registered 17 points this season and eight have come on the man advantage.
Feb 4 - 8:31 AM

Lightning goalie Ben Bishop steered aside 24 of the 25 Detroit shots he faced Wednesday night during a 3-1 victory in Tampa Bay.

The 6-foot-7, 216-pounder improved his goals-against average to under 2.00, at 1.99. His save percentage went up to .927. And his record is now 20-14-3. Bishop had a poor outing in a game just before the All-Star break, yielding four goals on 30 shots against the Florida Panthers, but he's overall a dependable goalie and worthy of retention in fantasy play.
