Andrew Hammond, G, OTT3/27/2015 10:35:00 AM
Description: Senators goaltender Andrew Hammond said he's been dealing with an injury, thought to be to his leg, but it shouldn't keep him off the ice.

Description: Senators goaltender Andrew Hammond picked up his first loss in regulation of his NHL career on Thursday night.
Insight: It was bound to happen, and Hammond was actually pulled in the second period after allowing five goals on 22 shots. He is still an impressive 14-1-1.
Henrik Lundqvist, G, NYR3/26/2015 4:14:00 PM
Description: Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist will start on either Saturday or Sunday.
Insight: If it is Saturday it will b against the Bruins, and if it is Sunday, it will be versus Washington. No matter what, Lundqvist appears ready to return to action.
Henrik Lundqvist, G, NYR3/25/2015 3:11:00 PM
Description: Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist will dress for Thursday's game versus the Senators according to the Bergen Record.
Insight: Normally third-string goaltender Mackenzie Skapski has been sent back to the AHL, so that means the Rangers are making a spot for Lundqvist. He will probably be the backup on Thursday and then start on either Saturday or Sunday.
Pekka Rinne, G, NAS3/24/2015 10:48:00 PM
Description: Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne picked up his 39th victory of the season on Tuesday night.

Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen allowed two goals during the Saturday's, 3-2, victory over the Penguins.

Description: Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury allowed three goals in the overtime loss to the Blues.

Jonathan Bernier, G, TOR3/23/2015 10:21:00 PM
Description: Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier had a decent game versus the Wild, but he still lost, 2-1.
Insight: It's just been a bad season overall for the Toronto Maple Leafs. It would probably be best for all fantasy owners to forget about owning anyone on this team. Despite just allowing two goals on Monday, Bernier dropped to 20-26-6 on the season.
Devan Dubnyk, G, MIN3/23/2015 10:20:00 PM
Description: Wild goaltender Devin Dubnyk allowed just one goal and made 35 saves in the, 2-1, victory over the Maple Leafs on Monday.

Description: Hurricanes goalie Anton Khudobin allowed two goals and lost to the Blackhawks, 3-1, on Monday.
Insight: The last Chicago goal came with an empty net. Khudobin shouldn't be on many fantasy hockey teams as he is 8-15-5 this season and came into Monday with a 2.64 GAA and .903 save percentage in 31 games this season.
Corey Crawford, G, CHI3/23/2015 9:38:00 PM

Description: Coyotes goalie Mike Smith made 41 saves in the, 3-1, loss to the Canucks on Sunday.
Insight: Smith has had a rough season, but he played well versus Vancouver. Just one of the two goals he allowed were on even strength. Smith, however, should not be in many fantasy lineups as he is 11-37-5 and came into Sunday with a 3.18 GAA and .901 save percentage.
Cam Talbot, G, NYR3/22/2015 10:22:00 PM
Description: Rangers goaltender Cam Talbot made 36 saves in the, 7-2, victory over the Ducks on Sunday.
Insight: Talbot has just been tremendous for the Rangers. With this victory, New York appears to be the front runner for the President's Trophy. New York, Montreal and Ahaheim all have 99 points, but New York has played the fewest amount of games. Talbot is 19-7-4 this season, and owners should continue to start him until Henrik Lundqvist returns.

Description: Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard picked up a win Sunday against St. Louis.
Insight: He made 23 saves on 24 shots on goal. Howard is now 21-12-9 overall.

Description: Lightning goalie Ben Bishop made 30 saves in the, 3-1, victory over the Red Wings on Friday.
Insight: Bishop allowed just the one goal on the power play. Detroit has the second best power play in the league, so we will cut Bishop some slack on not getting the shutout. He is 35-11-4 this season.

Description: Wild goaltender Devin Dubnyk finally had a poor game as he allowed three goals on 27 shots versus the Capitals on Thursday.
Insight: Fantasy owners should give Dubnyk the benefit of the doubt as he allowed two of those goals to Alex Ovechkin. Dubnyk has lost two of his last five games, but he is still an impressive 21-6-2 since Jan. 15.
Roberto Luongo, G, FLA3/19/2015 10:56:00 PM
Description: Florida goaltender Robert Luongo looked great in his return to the net on Thursday.
Insight: Luongo has been out for two and a half weeks, so it's nice to see him back for the last part of the fantasy hockey playoffs. Luongo made 26 saves, allowing just one goal versus the Red Wings in his return. It's safe to plug him back in lineups.
Jonathan Bernier, G, TOR3/19/2015 10:45:00 PM
Description: Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier allowed four goals in the, 4-1, loss to the Sharks on Thursday.

Cam Talbot, G, NYR3/18/2015 11:06:00 PM
Description: Rangers backup goaltender Cam Talbot had another phenominal game on Wednesday but lost to the Chicago Blackhawks, 1-0.
Insight: Talbot allowed just one goal in the third period. New York appeared to score a goal in the first period, but it was disallowed. Talbot has allowed just four goals in his last five starts, going 4-1-0 during that stretch. Unfortunately for owners riding Talbot's hot streak, Henrik Lundqvist could be returning soon. Talbot is a remarkable 11-0-2 in his last 11 games, and is making a case to stay between the pipes. He is now 17-6-4 overall.
Ryan Miller, G, VAN3/18/2015 2:41:00 PM

Cory Schneider, G, NJD3/17/2015 9:32:00 PM

Insight: Schneider seems to have the Penguins number this season. In a losing effort the last time Schneider faced Pittsburgh he made 41 saves and allowed just two goals. He didn't yield a goal in that contest until late in the third period. This time, he finished the job rather than waiting for his offense to score again. Schneider is 26-25-7 this season.
Henrik Lundqvist, G, NYR3/17/2015 4:46:00 PM
Description: Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist (neck) has been cleared to return to practice.

Petr Mrazek, G, DET3/15/2015 10:32:00 PM
Description: Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek had an incredible game against the Penguins on Sunday.
Insight: Detroit won, 5-1, so not many fans are going to point to Mrazek as a key to the game, but he made 42 saves. Mrazek was standing on his head at times, and some of those saves were big early in the game. He certainly redeemed himself from his last start, which was also against the Penguins in which Mrazek allowed four goals in two periods.
Jake Allen, G, STL3/15/2015 10:03:00 PM
Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen posted a shutout Sunday versus Dallas.

Marc-Andre Fleury, G, PIT3/15/2015 2:47:00 PM
Description: Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was chased out of the net on Saturday against the Red Wings.
Insight: Fleury lasted about a period and a half, allowing four goals on 16 shots. It was an awful game for the Penguins all around, who had 30 penalty minutes in the first period alone. Chalk this one up to a very undisciplined showing from Pittsburgh.
Semyon Varlamov, G, COL3/15/2015 11:03:00 AM
Description: Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov made 29 saves in the, 3-2, victory over the Flames on Saturday.

Jonathan Quick, G, LOS3/15/2015 10:42:00 AM

Description: Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne allowed just one goal in the, 2-1, victory over the Kings on Saturday.
Insight: Rinne has allowed just one goal in three straight games, so it appears he is out of his slump. The cold streak, however, went long enough that he is no longer the Vezina Trophy front runner and the Predators are clinging to just a two point lead in the Central Division.
Cory Schneider, G, NJD3/15/2015 10:37:00 AM
Description: Devils goaltender Cory Schneider made 30 saves in the, 4-1, victory over the Coyotes on Saturday.
Insight: Schneider has evened his victory count with his losses once again. Schneider has been bouncing back and forth between more wins and more losses. He also has a 2.20 GAA and .927 save percentage this season.
Devan Dubnyk, G, MINHot3/14/2015 10:56:00 PM
Description: Wild goaltender Devin Dubnyk allowed one goal versus the Blues as Minnesota won, 3-1.

Carey Price, G, MON3/14/2015 9:57:00 PM
Description: Canadiens goaltender Carey Price allowed just one goal on Saturday against the high-flying New York Islanders.
Insight: Although they have struggled lately, the Islanders are still second behind only the Lightning in goals scored in the Eastern Conference, so it was an impressive outing for Price. It was also a nice rebound from allowing five goals versus the Senators on Thursday. Price is 38-14-4 and is our choice for the Vezina Trophy winner.
Eddie Lack, G, VAN3/14/2015 9:48:00 PM
Description: Canucks goaltender Eddie Lack had an excellent game, making 28 saves in the, 4-1, victory over the Maple Leafs.
Insight: The only goal he did allow was a penalty shot, so he was very close to a shutout. Lack has been a pretty solid pickup for owners who needed to replace Ryan Miller. Lack has allowed three goals just once in his last six starts.
Cam Ward, G, CAR3/14/2015 9:46:00 PM
Description: Hurricanes goalie Cam Ward allowed just one goal on Saturday and still lost, 2-0, to the Panthers.
Insight: The final goal was an empty-netter, so it wasn't charged to Ward. He made 20 saves in the loss.
Dan Ellis, G, FLA3/14/2015 8:04:00 PM
Description: Panthers goaltender Dan Ellis played well, but took the loss Sunday against the Rangers.
Insight: He had won his previous three starts, so Eliis is clearly playing wel.. He made 32 saves on 34 shots on goal. He is now 3-1-1 on the season.
Tuukka Rask, G, BOS3/14/2015 5:30:00 PM
Description: Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask earned his third shutout of the season with a, 2-0, victory over the Penguins on Saturday.
Insight: Pittsburgh played without Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin the last two periods to make Rask's job much easier, but fantasy owners will take it. Rask is on a three-game winning streak. The surge is definitely helping owners in the playoffs.
