Flynn picked up his first point of 2016-17 in Wednesday's win over the Isles, notching the primary assist on Phillip Danault's third-period goal.
It's nice for him, but as a fourth-liner with precious little history of contributing either on offense or in peripheral categories like hits and blocks, Flynn possesses nearly zero fantasy value.
Nash flipped in his own rebound for a power-play goal, then later added an assist on linemate Jimmy Vesey's goal in Wednesday's 5-2 win over Boston.
The Rangers had a golden opportunity with AHL goalie Zane McIntyre in net for the Bruins, and after a slow first period, they capitalized. It was Nash who got them started with his goal around the midpoint of the second period, cutting the Bruins' 2-0 lead in half and sparking a run of five consecutive Rangers goals. He's got a mixed bag of a stat line in the early going -- five points in seven games isn't bad, but Nash owns a minus-4 rating despite his team having racked up five wins with a plus-9 goal differential.
Boychuk took a season-high seven shots on goal Wednesday, but missed the scoresheet and finished minus-1 in a 5-2 loss against Montreal.
He was proactive in his attempt to stretch his goal-scoring streak to three games, but Al Montoya stonewalled Boychuk at every turn. Nonetheless, after a down year in 2015-16, Boychuk's off to a strong start this season and could regain something closer to his fantasy value from 2014-15, when he notched 35 points to go with his typical contributions in plus-minus, hits and blocked shots. To do that, though, he'll probably need more power-play time -- it dropped by almost two-thirds last season and hasn't recovered much yet this year.
De Haan picked up an assist and blocked seven shots in Wednesday's loss to the Canadiens.
A game after notching his first point of the year -- a goal Sunday against Minnesota -- de Haan got right back on the scoresheet. He skated under 17 minutes in two of the season's first three games, but has averaged nearly 20 over the last three, although de Haan's power-play time remains spotty. It's good to see him start getting involved offensively; still, his main fantasy utility seems likely to come via the defensive categories: hits and blocks.
Petry picked up a power-play assist in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Islanders.
After four points in his first two games this season, Petry predictably cooled off, going three straight without hitting the scoresheet. However, he's continued seeing steady power-play time -- although only a season-low 53 seconds Wednesday because the Isles took just one penalty and the Habs promptly capitalized -- so he'll have plenty more opportunities to get on the scoresheet. Just don't let your expectations climb too high, as this isn't a guy with much of a track record on offense.
