Lagace allowed two goals on 19 shots but came away a 4-2 winner in Anaheim on Wednesday.
The 24-year-old rookie most certainly did not deserve the victory in this one, as poor John Gibson was hammered with 49 shots at the other end of the rink. A win is a win, however, and Lagace has four in his last five starts. It remains to be seen how long injuries will allow Lagace to remain with the big club, but his ugly ratios (.872 save percentage, 3.65 GAA) through 11 appearances don't inspire much confidence.
Bishop stopped 29 of 32 shots in Wednesday's loss to the Avalanche.
Bishop played well despite the loss, as the Stars simply couldn't get a puck past opposing netminder Jonathan Bernier. The 31-year-old had been excellent in his previous two outings and is now 9-7-0 on the season with a .908 save percentage. He's locked into the starting role and playing very well recently, so Bishop is worth getting into your lineup. The former Lightning netminder has been up-and-down this year, but this recent stretch is certainly a good sign moving forward. If he can find some consistency, Bishop still could become a valuable fantasy option this season.
Gibson stopped 45 of 49 shots in a 4-2 loss to visiting Vegas on Wednesday.
With the way the Ducks have been allowing pucks to pepper Gibson, it's no wonder the bubble finally burst in this one. The 24-year-old somehow escaped with eye-popping 50- and 40-save victories against Florida and Boston in his prior two starts, but a three-goal flurry by the Golden Knights in the final frame did him in. Also, prior to the aforementioned pair of victories, Gibson made 30 and 35 saves in tough losses to Tampa and Los Angeles, so given how well the American netminder has been playing while under fire, he's one of the top fantasy plays between the pipes right now.
Morrissey was credited with 10 hits in a 2-1 win over the Kings on Wednesday.
Now with 48 hits this season, Morrissey is no stranger to throwing the body, though the official scorers may have been a little generous in this one (teammate Brandon Tanev racked up seven hits, as well). Nonetheless, that's some prolific production for anyone rostering the rearguard in leagues that count defensive stats, but Morrissey's five points and average power-play time (less than 30 seconds) leave him well off most fantasy radars.
Forsberg scored both the team's goals in a 3-2 shootout victory over Montreal on Wednesday.
Both tallies came with the man advantage, where Forsberg has been dynamite this season. The 23-year-old is now riding a six-game point streak and is producing at over a point-per-game pace through 21 contests. The top-line sniper has 11 goals on the season and has been remarkably consistent with his production, making him a must-start whenever the Predators are in action.
