Jaroslav Halak gave up all six goals in a 6-2 loss to the Hurricanes on Saturday night. He faced 28 shots in two periods before being replaced to start the third period.
He was replaced by Thomas Greiss. Halak's queasy February continued Saturday and he has had just one game in his last five where his save percentage was above .880. He's 3-6-1 in his last 10 (since the start of 2016). At some point, the Isles and his fantasy owners need to figure out what to do to get through the rest of the season.
Isaiah Thomas was defeated by Karl-Anthony Towns in the final round of Saturday's All-Star Skills Compeition.
In the first year of a new Bigs vs Smalls format, Thomas easily blew past Emmanuel Mudiay and C.J. McCollum in the first two rounds but got narrowly edged out by Towns in the finals, as the two matched each other stride for stride and dribble for dribble before Towns was able to hit the decisive three-pointer on his fourth attempt. Thomas will look to redeem himself Sunday as the Boston Celtics ' lone representative in the All-Star Game itself.
Karl-Anthony Towns won the All-Star Skills Competition on Saturday, defeating Isaiah Thomas in the final round.
In the first year of a new Bigs vs Smalls format, Towns cruised past Draymond Green and DeMarcus Cousins in the first two rounds before narrowly edging out Thomas in the final, as the two were in a dead heat up and down the court before Towns hit the decisive three-pointer. Towns joins his Minnesota Timberwolves teammate Zach LaVine as a winner Saturday, with LaVine also defending his Slam Dunk title.
Cam Fowler went plus-2 and recorded two helpers in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blackhawks.
Fowler had his part in the game-winning goal by Ryan Getzlaf, tallying his first points since Dec. 27. The 24-year-old has had a down year so far, riddled with injuries and inconsistent play. Let's see if he can string together a few more solid games before we start to pencil him back into fantasy lineups.
Ryan Getzlaf potted the game-winning goal and added an assist in Saturday's 3-2 overtime victory over the Blackhawks.
Getzlaf is off to a sensational start after the All-Star break, recording 11 points in seven games, including two points in four straight. With only five goals on the year, the 30-year-old isn't hitting the back of the net as much as his past two years, but he's still a valuable contributor for the Anaheim Ducks . With his health no longer in question, keep Getzlaf in your lineups and enjoy his hot streak.
