Andrei Markov, # 79

News
Markov scored his team's only goal in a 3-1 loss to the Jets on Saturday.

The 38-year-old only has four goals this season, but two of his scores have come within the past four contests. Despite not much scoring, Markov is a halfway decent fantasy option. He is averaging 0.625 points and 1.45 shots per game. Furthermore, he has a plus-6 rating and 10 of his 25 points have come on special teams. Markov doesn't excel in any fantasy area, but he also has no strong weaknesses.

News
Weber posted a power-play goal and an even-strength assist in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win over the Rangers.

He drove all of Montreal's regulation offense while getting on the scoresheet for only the second time in his last 10 games. Weber got off to an insanely hot start this year, but like most of the rest of the Habs, he's cooled off in a big way. In fact, he has just 17 points and a minus-4 rating in his past 40 games; that's low-end production for a fantasy blueliner, and it's torture for owners who dished out a pretty penny to acquire Weber's services on draft day.

News
Price stopped 28 of 30 shots en route to a 3-2 shootout victory against the Rangers on Tuesday.

Even "mediocre" is a charitable term to describe Price's play over the last two-plus months, but he rose to the occasion in this Original Six matchup, delivering just his second win in his last seven starts. Indeed, it's been a tale of two seasons for the B.C. native, who went 16-3-2 with a .940 save percentage over his first 21 games; over 24 outings since then, he's just 9-12-3 with an .899 save mark. Price hasn't held the opposition under two goals since Jan. 24, and his last shutout came in the middle of November.

News
Byron beat the Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist for the game-winning goal in Tuesday's shootout, but he didn't hit the scoresheet over his 15:03 of ice time.

Byron also took as many shots in the shootout as he did in all of regulation, which is to say: one. The 27-year-old forward has missed the scoresheet in nine straight games and owns just two points through his last 16 contests, so fantasy owners are likely to find more appeal elsewhere.

News
Shaw scored a goal on two shots, one hit, and had a two-minute penalty over 15:45 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win over the Rangers.

Shaw hadn't put one past a goalie since Jan. 24, a stretch of 10 games before his wraparound beat New York's Henrik Lundqvist. It was a good sequence for Shaw who earlier in the shift made a nice play to keep the puck inside the Rangers' zone. It was a reminder of the good that Shaw can provide. Since returning from a knee injury 17 games ago, Shaw has made more headlines for his dumb penalties than offensive contributions (two goals, three assists).

News
Pateryn was in the active lineup Tuesday after Montreal general manager Marc Bergevin let it be known the defenseman is available, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports. He had one shot on goal, two blocked shots and five hits over 13:04 of ice time on the third defensive pair.

Pateryn, who had been a regular healthy scratch since Montreal acquired Nikita Nesterov, got caught up in in a social-media imbroglio involving his wife, who tweeted an uncomplimentary assessment of Montreal's past and present coaches. The incident has motivated the organization to move the 26-year-old blueliner, so his presence in the lineup Wednesday was seen as a showcase. Pateryn was never a favorite of former coach Michel Therrien and his status didn't change when Claude Julien was hired to replace Therrien.
