Ben Bishop Headshot

Bishop saved 25 of 26 shots during Thursday's 2-1 shootout loss to Columbus.

Dallas generally provides the needed offensive support for Bishop to collect a win when he goes 65 minutes and allows just a single goal. With Thursday's strong showing, the American now boasts a 20-12-3 record, .917 save percentage and 2.46 GAA for the campaign. Fantasy owners should continue to view Bishop as a solid option moving forward.

Anton Khudobin Headshot

Khudobin saved 22 of 24 shots during Thursday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.

With a 10-2-4 record, .924 save percentage and 2.38 GAA for the campaign, Khudobin have proven to be an elite backup for the Bruins this season. Fantasy owners have also reaped the rewards of turning his way when he's been given the starting nod. Additionally, this might be the best version of the Bruins we've seen in a few years, so Khudobin projects to remain a solid start whenever he patrols the blue paint.
12:08 am (EST)
Brayden Schenn Headshot

Schenn picked up a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Senators.

Schenn ended an 11-game goal drought in the second period, giving his team a 3-0 lead with his 18th marker of the season. He then raised his point total to 46 in 48 games with an assist on Alexander Steen's empty-netter in the third.
12:07 am (EST)
Alexander Steen Headshot

Steen scored an empty-net goal and added an assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Senators.

Steen has really come on of late, registering five goals and four assists in his past 11 games. This was his first multi-point effort in that stretch, however, and the first such performance since Dec. 9 for Steen overall. With 26 points and a minus-12 rating in 42 appearances, the 33-year-old forward has been a fringe contributor in most fantasy settings.

Jaroslav Halak Headshot

Halak allowed four goals on 33 shots during Thursday's 5-2 loss to Boston.

This was another discouraging showing from Halak, as he's now allowed four goals or more in eight of his past nine outings. Until there is marked improvement, it's difficult to start him confidently. After all, the 32-year-old Czech sports a grotesque .905 save percentage and 3.25 GAA for the campaign.
Yesterday 11:56 pm (EST)
Brad Marchand Headshot

Marchand recorded a goal and two assists during Thursday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.

Now up to five goals and nine assists through his past seven games, Marchand has improved to an elite 3.86 points per 60 minutes for the campaign. Those numbers have him positioned among the best scorers in the league, and his plus-21 rating is also gold in formats including the category. The Nova Scotia native continues to affirm that last season's 85-point showing was no fluke.
Yesterday 11:52 pm (EST)
Morgan Rielly Headshot

Per coach Mike Babcock, Rielly is being evaluated for an injury following Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Flyers, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports.

Rielly appeared to be in some pain when he exited Thursday's loss towards the end of the second period, but he was able to return for the third period and finish the game, albeit in a somewhat limited fashion. The Maple Leafs should release another update on the 23-year-old blueliner's status ahead of Saturday's matchup with Ottawa.
Yesterday 11:50 pm (EST)
David Krejci Headshot

Krejci collected two assists, four shots and a plus-2 rating during Thursday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.

The pair of helpers extended Krejci's point streak to four games (two goals and four assists) and also give him nine points through eight contests since returning from a lower-body injury. The Czech has proven to be a reliable offensive contributor and projects to continue offering solid supporting numbers for the majority of fantasy settings.
Yesterday 11:45 pm (EST)
Bobby Ryan Headshot

Ryan (hand) celebrated his return to the lineup after a nine-day absence by scoring his team's only goal in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Blues.

While Ryan's owners will be happy that he potted his sixth goal of the season, the poor play around him also resulted in a minus-2 rating. Ottawa's struggles have limited the 30-year-old sniper's value, as he's in danger of seeing his goal total drop for the second consecutive campaign after scoring 22 in 2015-16 and just 13 last year.
Yesterday 11:44 pm (EST)
Patrice Bergeron Headshot

Bergeron scored three goals -- one with the man advantage -- during Thursday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.

The hat trick improves Bergeron to nine goals and five assists through his past eight games, and he's up to a high-end 2.96 points per 60 minutes for the campaign. Often more recognized for his two-way play, the 32-year-old center's production is in line with the top fantasy contributors in the league. Additionally, Bergeron's currently on pace to have a career-best offensive showing.
