Any Goalie facing
the Penguins or Sabres. With an insane
number of injuries to both squads, particularly on offense, Pittsburgh and
Buffalo seem incapable of scoring right now.
The Pens have gone 5 games without scoring more than 1 goal. Ouch.
David Krejci (BOS)
It took him long
enough to get going this season, but he seems to be back in playoff form at
this point. Krejci is now riding a 9
game point streak. During that stretch,
he's amassed 5 goals and 9 assists for 14 points.
Ilya Kovalchuk (NJ)
finally starting to earn that outrageous
salary. He has registered 2 points in
each of the last four games and has 5 goals in that span. His shot totals are impressive, averaging
about 7 a game right now. #17 is back.
Curtis Glencross (CGY)
Glencross is the
midst of a career year, thanks to an impressive run in January. He has 4 goals and 9 points over the last 6
games for the Flames. He's really
clicking with Olli Jokinen right now.
Saku Koivu (ANA)
While little brother
Mikku is struggling in Minnesota, the old man in Anaheim is looking young
again. Since returning from injury on
New Year's Eve, Saku has put up 9 points in 5 games, including a hat trick on
Tuesday against the Stars. He's leading
a mini-resurgence for the Ducks right now.
Craig Anderson (G-OTT)
climbed to dismal 3.36 at Christmas time, since then, that number has been in a
freefall (which is a good thing), and the wins have been piling up (even better
thing). He's 6-0-1 in his last seven games,
posting a .940 save percentage during this amazing run.
Jonas Gustavsson (G-TOR)
With Ottawa stepping
it up on defense, Toronto has answered the call with the Monster. Over the past four games, he's 4-0 with two
Adam Henrique (NJ)
continuing to pile up the points in his rookie season. He has six points in the last four games on a
line with Kovalchuk.
Dan Boyle (D-SJ)
At age 35, Boyle
doesn’t seem to be slowing down much.
He's on a fine run right now, with six points over the last two games.
Tomas Plekanec (MON)
Over the past five
games, Plekanec has one lousy assist.
He's still earning top line minutes in Montreal, but the production is
completely absent. He's on pace for a
mere 15 goals this season. The -12
plus/minus rating isn't helping either.
Pascal Dupuis (PIT)
When the Pens were
healthy, Dupuis was obviously feeding off the momentum. Lately, he's gone cold with no points in the
last 6 games.
Marian Gaborik (NYR)
Mr. Streaky is back
on the down slope now. His stats are a
perfect sine wave. After piling up 7
goals in five games, he has just one tally in the last 6 games.
Tomas Fleischmann / Stephen Weiss (FLA)
The hot start will
soon be forgotten if he can't break out of the funk. No points in three games for Florida's top
two offensive threats.
- Jonas Hiller (G-ANA) - just
when the Ducks started scoring, their goalie goes down again
- Thomas Vanek (BUF) -
questionable for tonight (upper body)
- Derek Roy (BUF) - out
- Patrick Sharp (CHI) - out a
- Jeff Carter (COB) - out
indefinitely with a separated shoulder
- Jordan Eberle (EDM) - out 2
to 3 weeks (knee)
- James Neal (PIT) - back from
supposed broken foot in a day
- Jordan Staal (PIT) - out 4 to
6 weeks (MCL)
Value Picks of the Week
Here are some guys
currently undervalued on Fanduel that you should cash in on in the short term:
Sergei Bobrovsky (G-PHI) - $6,600 / 4.6 FPPG
With Bryzgalov in a
hole, his countryman has stepped it up for the Flyers. He's making the case for more and more
starts, going 6-2 over his last 8 games with a 1.66 GAA in that span.
Adam Henrique (C-NJ) - $5,900 / 3.1 FPPG
See above on what
he's doing. Don't pass on him this week.
David Krejci (C-BOS) - $6,400 / 3.1 FPPG
above. His salary hasn't kept pace with
his recent production.
Taylor Hall (LW-EDM) - $6,300 / 3.7 FPPG
Hall is carrying the
weight in Edmonton with Eberle and Nugent-Hopkins on the shelf. He has 4 goals and 2 assists over the last 5
games and comes rather cheap.
Daniel Alfredsson (RW-OTT) - $6,400 / 3.5 FPPG
Remember that old
guy from Ottawa? Just maybe he's going
to actually deserve that All-Star berth.
He has come on in a big way over the last month, racking up 17 points in
