News
Ovechkin had a power-play goal in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Rangers.

The Russian's 27th goal of the season gives him 52 points in 58 games in 2016-17. He may struggle to hit the 50-goal mark for the first time in four seasons, but he remains as reliable a fantasy performer as they come.

News
Eller had a power-play assist in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Rangers.

The 27-year-old has been on fire of late with two goals and six points in his last eight games. After a sleepy first-half, the Danish pivot is carving outs some legitimate fantasy value now that he's producing on a more steady basis and is filling in for Andre Burakovsky (hand) on the second power-play unit. Those in deeper leagues should take notice.

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.

News
Kuznetsov recorded a power-play assist in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Rangers.

The Russian pivot now has 45 points in 58 games and has been looking more and more like the dynamic playmaker that took the league by storm in 2015-16. Keep him rolling in standard and daily formats.
