Oilers' Drake Caggiula: Snipes twice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caggiula scored two goals, including one shorthanded, in Saturday's 6-3 loss to Dallas. The goals double his current point total.

Caggiula has been disappointing after a promising debut in 2016-17. He should remain on the wire until he demonstrates growth in his game.

Hawks' Luke Babbitt: Will play Saturday vs. Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Babbitt (back) will be in the starting lineup Saturday against the Celtics.

Babbitt exited Wednesday's win over the Kings with back spasms but will return to the starting lineup Saturday night. Look for Ersan Ilyasova to come off the bench in the contest but he could see additional action if the Hawks' decide to monitor Babbitt's minutes.

Oilers' Connor McDavid: Pads point totals again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDavid scored a power-play goal and added two assists, including one shorthanded, in a 6-3 loss to the Stars on Saturday afternoon.

McDavid continues to pad his individual stats, but he those aren't enough to get the Oil into the win column. He has 28 points, including 12 goals, in 21 games, which puts him on pace for 110 points. That's great for fantasy, but McDavid needs to grow his game on the ice to deliver team success.

Stars' Ben Bishop: Perfect in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bishop was pressed into relief Saturday after a wobbly start by Kari Lehtonen and earned the win on the back of 39 shutout minutes. He made 18 saves.

Bishop entered the game down 3-2 and made some sharp saves to give his mates a chance to dig themselves out of a hole. He had been given the day off after a wobbly start Thursday against the Bolts, so let's hope this game sharpens Bishop's focus going forward.

Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Yanked after 21 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lehtonen was pulled Saturday after yielding three goals on nine shots to the Oilers.

The Stars came back with Ben Bishop in net to overcome a 3-2 deficit to record a 6-3 win. Lehtonen had been in net to give Bishop, who has struggled recently, a bit of a break, but that lasted 21 minutes. Lehtonen has been solid in a backup role, so consider this an outlier.
