Kyle Turris Headshot

Turris netted the game-winning goal Sunday against the Panthers.

Turris had a very productive night, firing six shots on goal and picking up two PIM. The 27-year-old has struck three times in his last six games and has hit the 20-goal mark for the third time in his career. His 43 points aren't superstar caliber, but Turris is a lethal goal-scorer who centers the top line and plays on the power play with Erik Karlsson. Keep him rolling, as the Senators are right in the thick of the playoff race and will depend on Turris heavily down the stretch.

Erik Karlsson Headshot

Karlsson racked up a pair of assists in Sunday's win over the Panthers.

Just another day at the office for Karlsson, who is up to 54 points in 60 games. The Swedish rearguard is an offensive machine who is never afraid to take chances and join the rush. He's reached double digits in goals for the sixth consecutive time in a full season and is consistently piling on helpers. You know what to do.
2:31 am (EST)
James Reimer Headshot

Reimer made 31 saves on 33 shots in Sunday's win over the Senators.

Reimer turned in an excellent performance, but his opposition Craig Anderson was just that much better. While he was burned for four goals in a loss to the Oilers on Wednesday, Reimer has been playing very well of late and could see a heavy workload down the stretch given the recent struggles of Roberto Luongo. Reimer could be worth a look right now, as he owns a 12-8-4 record with a solid .919 save percentage and has allowed two or fewer goals in six of his last eight outings.
2:15 am (EST)
Craig Anderson Headshot

Anderson stopped 37 of 38 shots in Sunday's win over the Panthers.

A monstrous showing from Anderson, who picked up his 16th win of the season. The 35-year-old has been outstanding since returning from his absence and should be started with confidence every night. With the Senators sitting second in the Atlantic Division and battling for a playoff spot, Anderson and his .929 save percentage should be a very valuable asset down the stretch.
2:05 am (EST)
Danilo Gallinari Headshot

Gallinari scored 24 points (6-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 10-11 FT) while adding four rebounds, two steals and an assist in 35 minutes during Sunday's 105-98 loss to the Grizzlies.

He's looked good in three games since returning from a groin injury, averaging 19.7 points, 6.0 boards, 1.7 three-pointers and 1.0 steals. Staying healthy is always an issue for Gallinari -- he's played more than 59 games just once in the last five seasons -- but if he can avoid his usual strains and sprains, he should be productive down the stretch for a Nuggets squad that doesn't have many other scoring options.
1:14 am (EST)
Nikola Jokic Headshot

Jokic scored 10 points (5-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt) while adding 11 rebounds, six assists, a steal and a block in 33 minutes during Sunday's 105-98 loss to the Grizzlies.

The second-year center is struggling at the offensive end of the court right now, scoring only 16 points combined over his last three games, but Jokic has still grabbed double-digit boards in six of his last eight contests while averaging 16.6 points, 12.3 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 0.9 blocks and 0.9 steals over that stretch.
1:09 am (EST)
Zach Randolph Headshot

Randolph scored 20 points (9-18 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding 11 rebounds and two assists in 26 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 105-98 win over the Nuggets.

After nearly averaging a double-double in January, Randolph has unsurprisingly fallen off the pace a bit in February, but the 35-year-old has still produced a useful 13.9 points and 8.4 boards through nine games on the month as the Grizzlies try to lock up a playoff spot in the Western Conference.
1:04 am (EST)
Jose Berrios Headshot

Berrios gave up a run over two innings with two strikeouts and a walk in his spring debut in Sunday's win over Washington.

Berrios and Trevor May are the primary candidates competing for the fifth starter job, though five other starters (including Tyler Duffey) are also in the mix. Berrios will pitch for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic, which may delay Minnesota's decision on their fifth starter role until late in spring training. Berrios was spectacular at Triple-A last season (2.51 ERA and 10.1 K/9) but struggled so much in the majors (8.02 ERA and 5.4 BB/9) that the Twins may feel he needs to regroup in the minors at the start of the season.
12:56 am (EST)
Mike Conley Headshot

Conley scored 31 points (9-16 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 8-11 FT) while adding five assists, four rebounds and two steals in 35 minutes during Sunday's 105-98 win over the Nuggets.

It's the second time in four games Conley's popped for 30 or more points. The 29-year-old has enjoyed another huge month in February, averaging 20.1 points, 6.0 assists, 2.6 boards, 2.2 three-pointers and 1.4 steals in 10 games.
12:54 am (EST)
Marc Gasol Headshot

Gasol scored 23 points (9-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding six assists, five rebounds and a block in 38 minutes during Sunday's 105-98 win over the Nuggets.

It's the first time in eight games Gasol has scored 20 or more points, and the first time in nine that he's drained more than one three-pointer, as the veteran center's offense has taken a bit of a downturn in February. He's remained productive, however, averaging 16.3 points, 7.8 boards and 5.8 assists over that eight-game stretch.
