News
Oshie leads the league with a gaudy shooting percentage of 23.7.

Washington only ranks 18th in the league in shot attempts per contest (29.7), but Oshie's pinpoint accuracy as a sniper has contributed heavily to his team's standing as the second-ranked offense at 3.41 goals per game. As an added bonus for fantasy owners, the American skater has collected one goal and two helpers while shorthanded. When it comes to daily fantasy pools, consider Oshie as a viable alternative to stud teammate Alex Ovechkin if you don't want to break the bank paying up for a winger.

News
Holtby allowed two goals on 23 shots in a shootout loss to the Red Wings on Saturday.

Coming off their bye week, the Capitals came out flat and yielded the first two goals of the game to the last-placed Red Wings. Washington came back to tie the score and send it into a shootout, but Holtby and the Capitals were unable to capture the victory. Prior to Saturday, the last time Holtby had taken a loss was Dec. 29. Heading into this game, he was 14-0-0 with a .924 save percentage in 2017. This will likely just be a bump in the road, as Holtby is once again a leading candidate for the Vezina Trophy.

News
Grubauer stopped 28 of the 30 shots the Rangers sent his way Sunday afternoon, but he got stuck with a 2-1 loss.

The German backup doesn't get to play all that often behind Braden Holtby -- mostly in back-to-back situations like this one -- but when he's been between the pipes, he's performed well. Through 16 appearances this year, Grubauer owns a sparkling 10-4-2 record with a 1.98 GAA and .932 save percentage, so the Caps don't hesitate to turn his way when Holtby needs a break.
