Patrik Laine Headshot

Line scored his 29th and 30th goals of the season in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to Toronto.

It's not hard to pick out spectacular stretches of Laine's season, but these last five games particularly stand out, as he's racked up seven goals and three assists along with a plus-7 rating in that span. The 18-year-old Finn looks set to continue an epic battle with the Leafs' Auston Matthews -- who notched three assists on the other side in this one -- for Calder Trophy honors.

Micheal Ferland Headshot

Ferland potted two goals Tuesday in Nashville.

Ferland opened the scoring just 46 seconds in, then added a second tally later in the opening frame for his first career multi-goal effort. The 24-year-old forward has made a major leap of late, lighting the lamp five times in his past nine games after scoring just 11 goals in his first 144 appearances.
1:06 am (EST)
Johnny Gaudreau Headshot

Gaudreau dished out four helpers in Tuesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Predators.

All four of Gaudreau's assists came at even strength, with the final once helping Mark Giordano seal the victory 43 seconds into overtime. The baby-faced winger has scored just one goal in his past 20 games, but he does have 12 helpers over that span. He's converting on just 8.0 percent of his shots this season after coming in with a career shooting percentage of 14.3 percent.
1:04 am (EST)
Filip Forsberg Headshot

Forsberg recorded a hat trick in Tuesday's 6-5 overtime loss to Calgary.

All three of Forsberg's goals came in an 8:37 span during the second period as his team stormed back from a 4-1 deficit with four unanswered goals before ultimately giving up two more. The Swedish forward had lit the lamp just once in his previous 10 games, but connected on all three shots he took in this one. Forsberg's first hat trick of the season comes almost exactly one year after he recorded two in three games during February of 2016.
12:59 am (EST)
Brian Elliott Headshot

Elliott allowed five goals on 28 shots but ended up the victor nonetheless Tuesday in Nashville.

Elliott surrendered four unanswered goals in the second period after being gifted a 4-1 lead, but was once again bailed out by the offense when Mikael Backlund tied the game in the third period and Mark Giordano won it 43 seconds into overtime. While it hasn't always been pretty, the former Blues netminder is 5-1-1 in his past seven starts.
12:45 am (EST)
Connor Hellebuyck Headshot

Hellebuyck gave up five goals on 37 shots in Tuesday's overtime loss against Toronto.

This game featured a wild final 4:08 of the second period in which the two teams traded four goals, only for the Leafs to smother the Jets' offense from there on out while Hellebuyck bled away their one-goal lead and ultimately lost on Jake Gardiner's overtime tally. He'd delivered a pair of strong outings in a row, but Hellebuyck has rarely been able to deliver sustained success, and this game was a prime example of his unreliability in fantasy circles.
12:38 am (EST)
Pekka Rinne Headshot

Rinne allowed four goals on 13 shots before being pulled Tuesday against the Flames.

Juuse Saros played the rest of what ended up being a 6-5 overtime loss. Rinne was beaten by Michael Ferland just 46 seconds in, and ended up allowing three goals in the first period. He got the hook when Dougie Hamilton beat him to make it 4-1 just 5:12 into the second period.
12:37 am (EST)
Mikael Granlund Headshot

Granlund scored two power-play goals in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Chicago.

Granlund needed just 36 seconds of power-play time to put two pucks past the 28th-ranked Chicago penalty kill. Unfortunately, his inability contribute at even strength still led to a minus-2 rating for the Finn. Granlund has gotten at least one point in 17 of his past 20 games, with nine goals and 15 assists over that span.
12:31 am (EST)
Devan Dubnyk Headshot

Dubnyk allowed four goals on 38 shots in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Blackhawks.

Jonathan Toews was Dubnyk's biggest nemesis all night, playing a hand in all four goals on the netminder's ledger plus another one. Dubnyk has now allowed at least four goals in six of his past 19 appearances after not surrendering that many in any of his first 27. Despite the recent decline in form, he still leads the league in wins, GAA and save percentage.
12:24 am (EST)
Corey Crawford Headshot

Crawford made 29 saves in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Wild.

Despite being beaten by Mikael Granlund on both opposing power play opportunities, Crawford helped pull his team within five points of the Central Division-leading Wild. Much of his support came from a Jonathan Toews hat trick, as Chicago's high-powered offense led Crawford to his fifth victory in six games. Scott Darling has posted better stats, but the experienced veteran continues to be the go-to guy in net for the Blackhawks.
