Golden Knights' Marc-Andre Fleury: Knocks off former team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleury beat visiting Pittsburgh 2-1 on Thursday with a 24-save performance.

What a victory for the long-time Penguin, who was making just his second start since returning from a lengthy injury absence. Fleury's only mark against him on the night came courtesy of an even-strength tally by defenseman Ian Cole. In terms of his form, Fleury has looked good in turning aside 59 of 62 shots during his first two games back, so it's probably safe to say he'll again be making the lion's share of starts in Vegas.

Blues' Jake Allen: Just 15 saves in 3-1 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen allowed three goals on 18 shots during Thursday's 3-1 loss to Anaheim.

Allen surrendered five goals through his previous four contests and has 18 wins for the campaign, so it's best not to overreact to this blip on the radar. Alex Pietrangelo's (foot) status is worth monitoring because his minutes will be tougher to replace the longer he's out. Otherwise, everything appears in check for the Blues and Allen's fantasy outlook.

Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Piles on goal, assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson scored his eighth goal of the season and added an assist Thursday in a 4-1 win over Arizona.

The diminutive forward stretched his point streak to six games, a span that's featured a whopping 11 points. Even more impressively, Johnson has produced two points in each of his last four games, bringing his season total up to 22 in 31 contests. He's endured a pretty tough fall from grace since 2014-15's 72-point breakout (38 and 45 in the two campaigns since), but the 27-year-old is showing signs of greatness right now that shouldn't go unnoticed in any format.

Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Adds two more points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kucherov tallied a goal and an assist Thursday in a 4-1 win over the Coyotes.

His four shots on goal give him a whopping 107 this year, to go with an absurd (and symmetrical) 22 goals and 22 assists in 31 games. Those that thought Kucherov topped out season at 85 points could end up being mistaken; right now, he's on an 82-game pace on 116 points, and though sustaining this type of production isn't likely, a shot at triple-digits is well within reason for the 24-year-old.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Continues to sizzle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point recorded a goal and as assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over Arizona.

Since a four-game absence from the scoresheet, the second-line center has been all kinds of hot, reeling off nine points over a six-game point -- or maybe we should we say "Point" -- streak. The 21-year-old has also put up three consecutive multi-point games, giving him 30 points in 31 games this year. Point will easily surpass last season's rookie total of 40; the question, at this juncture, is by how much.
