  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Stops 34 for first win since Jan. 16

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/20/18) Saros made 34 saves to beat the Red Wings by a 3-2 score Tuesday.

    Saros was handed a two-goal lead after one period, but Detroit largely carried play thereafter, firing 14 shots in each of the final two frames. The young backup was able to parry 13 both times, never allowing the home side to fully close the gap. While this was Saros' first trip to the win column since Jan. 16, he remains a strong streaming option whenever Pekka Rinne gets the night off.

    Predators' Juuse Saros: Set to patrol crease Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/20/18) Saros will draw the start for Tuesday's game against the Red Wings, Thomas Willis of the Predators' official site reports.

    Saros played admirably Saturday, stopping 31 of 33 shots, but still took the loss. In fact, the 22-year-old backstop has four losses in the last four games, and his performance hasn't been bad -- a .908 save percentage and 2.97 GAA -- but the Predators averaged just two goals per game in that stretch. The Red Wings aren't a threatening option with the 27th-ranked offense in the league, but it depends if the Preds can put up goals to support Saros.

    Predators' Juuse Saros: Strong performance despite loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/18/18) Saros made 31 saves on 33 shots in Saturday's loss to the Red Wings.

    Saros was making his 15th start of the season and did his best to give the Predators a shot at winning. The 22-year-old is now 5-5-5 on the season with a .925 save percentage. He's had a few rough outings of late, but Saros looked excellent against Detroit and is back on the right track. Given the success Nashville has had this season, Saros makes for a quality backup option whenever Rinne is given a night off.

    Predators' Juuse Saros: Takes tough-luck loss against Hawks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/31/18) Saros saved 29 of 31 shots during Tuesday's 2-1 loss to Chicago.

    With a high-end .923 save percentage and 2.33 GAA, Saros has been extremely unlucky to win just five of 13 starts this season. His fantasy value is limited playing second fiddle to Pekka Rinne, but Saros is definitely worth considering as a Rinne handcuff or standalone stash in deep leagues. Additionally, considering his strong play, the 22-year-old Finn is definitely a streaming option and DFS candidate whenever he receives the starting nod.

    Predators' Juuse Saros: Receives starting nod

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/30/18) Saros will stop pucks Tuesday against the Blackhawks, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    Saros only has three starts since the calendar flip, so it's interesting to see him getting the first nod after the All-Star break. Those three games didn't yield much consistency, though, with two overtime losses, where he posted a .880 save percentage or less, and one 43-save shutout win. The Blackhawks averaged under two goals per game over their last seven matchups, with just two wins in that span. Saros will still have to bring his best game if he wishes to topple Chicago and continue earning starts.
