News
Beagle scored a goal in the second period and registered a team-high six shots on net over 17:24 of ice time during Monday's overtime win against the Sabres.

The tally snapped a six-game point drought for Beagle, and he had just four shots on net during the dry spell, so overreacting to Monday's outburst will likely prove ill-advised. Beagle often receives fleeting promotions into a scoring role, and in those cases, he's a potential grab in deep seasonal leagues and low-priced flier in daily contests.

News
Carlson collected a power-play assist and registered two shots on net over 26:27 of ice time during Monday's win over Buffalo.

Carlson has notched a power-play helper in consecutive games, and he's a hot stretch away from putting his poor start behind him. Carlson has just 10 points through the first 24 games of the year, but he's maintained a high shot volume (2.46 shots per game) and remains the power-play quarterback of the No. 1 unit. Additionally, look for Carlson to improve on his plus-1 rating.

Braden Holtby, # 70

News
Holtby saved 31 of 33 shots during an overtime win against Buffalo on Monday.

Holtby entered the game with a .922 save percentage and a 2.16 GAA, and Monday's win was his 11th of the season. He remains an elite fantasy goalie in all fantasy settings, and with a strong team in front of him, there is no reason to expect Holtby's production to slip.

News
Johansson scored two goals -- including the game-winner in overtime -- against Buffalo on Monday.

Johansson is heating back up of late with four goals and an assist through his past five games. However, he's only registered eight shots on net during the span, so puck luck has certainly been on his side. For the year, Johansson has 11 goals and 18 points over 24 games, which puts him on an 82-game pace of 61.5 points. It would be a career-high mark, and barring injury, the 25-year-old winger looks like a lock to post his first 50-point campaign.

News
Orlov assisted on the game-winning goal in overtime and finished with two shots on net and a plus-2 rating against Buffalo on Monday.

The 25-year-old defenseman is a low-end fantasy asset because he doesn't log big minutes and is clearly behind John Carlson and Matt Niskanen in the offensive pecking order. Orlov should be left to deep seasonal leagues and is likely best utilized as a low-priced flier in daily contests when Washington lands in a favorable matchup.

News
Carey was returned to AHL Hershey on Tuesday, Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Carey was limited to 6:58 of ice time in Monday's overtime win over the Sabres, and he didn't have the finest showing, failing to appear on the scoresheet with a minus-2 rating. Depending on the ongoing rehab progress of T.J. Oshie (shoulder), the Capitals could roll with Brett Connolly for Wednesday's game against the Bruins or less likely, bring back Carey.

Evgeny Kuznetsov, # 92
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS

News
Kuznetsov assists on the game-winning goal in overtime against Buffalo on Monday.

It was just Kuznetsov's fourth point through the past 15 games and 10th point all year. After exploding for 77 points last year, the 24-year-old pivot has been one of the bigger disappointments to start 2016-17. He's failed to register a point in 16 of 24 games, and fantasy owners should be in panic mode. Taking a buy-low flier on Kuznetsov could pay off handsomely, but it's certainly not a risk-free move.
