Shane Doan netted a power-play goal and added an assist in Friday's loss to the Ducks.
Doan now has 19 goals and 30 points on the season, as the 390-year-old continues to get it done in his 20th career NHL season. The veteran has put up points in back-to-back games and has scored nine times on the power play this season, making him a lethal fantasy threat in most formats. The Arizona Coyotes have lost four straight games, but Doan should still find ways to produce despite the team's recent struggles.
Gordon Hayward posted 18 points (6-14 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds and two assists over 38 minutes in Friday's 84-81 victory over the Bucks.
Hayward perservered through an uncharacteristic six turnovers to tally the Utah Jazz 's second-highest scoring total of the night. The six-year pro continues to roll aolong as one of Utah's primary sources of offensive production, although slight dip in his numbers is to be expected now that Derrick Favors has fully reintegrated himself back into the offense following his injury. Nevertheless, Hayward has gotten February off to a solid start, averaging 20.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 4.7 assists through three games so far in the month.
Giannis Antetokounmpo tallied 14 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-8 FT), six rebounds, a steal and a block over 33 minutes in Friday's 84-81 loss to the Jazz.
The third-year pro's shot attempts were down while contending with some Gordon Hawyard defense, but he still managed his 12th double-digit scoring performance in the last 13 games with some efficient shooting. Antetokounmpo has brought a greater measure of consistency in the 2015-16 campaign, and is already averaging a solid 16.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.7 blocks and 1.7 steals in three February contests.
Frederik Andersen stopped 23 of 25 shots in Friday's win over Arizona.
That's five straight wins for Andersen, who is getting the job done on a surging Anaheim Ducks team. The 26-year-old hasn't allowed more than two goals in a game since Dec.21 against Vancouver and is now 23-10-8 on the season with a .918 save percentage. Make sure he's in your lineup right now, as the Ducks are piling on goals, so the wins should continue to come.
Marc-Andre Fleury voiced his interest in starting against the Panthers after getting yanked Friday, but with no Saturday morning skate it's unknown whether the team will go with Fleury or backup Jeff Zatkoff.
The Flower has surrendered 12 goals in his last three road starts. With a full slate of action Saturday, it might be wise to at least consider other options. Florida will be well rested while the Pens will be coming off Friday's 6-3 loss to Tampa Bay.
