Andrej Meszaros D BUF 2 hours ago
Meszaros tallied two goals -- including the game-winner -- in Monday's 4-1 triumph over the Coyotes.
It's the second straight two-goal performance for Meszaros, who had lit the lamp just three times in his previous 52 games this season. Though Meszaros' outburst has come far too late in the year to change the Sabres' fortunes, the impending free agent might have shown potential suitors that he still has some offensive upside to offer.
Martin Marincin D EDM 2 hours ago
Marincin recorded an assist and went plus-2 in Monday's win over the Avalanche.
Marincin has a point in two of his last three games to go along with a plus-5 rating, but his overall dearth of production on the season (one goal, two assists, and a minus-3 mark in 35 games) should carry more weight in his valuation. As a blueliner with a limited offensive repertoire on a terrible team, Marincin's outlook remains glum.
Justin Schultz D EDM 2 hours ago
Schultz bagged the game-winning goal in Monday's 4-1 victory over the Avalanche.
It's the first game-winner of the season for Schultz, who has only found twine six times on the campaign. While he'll still finish with a career high in assists and is just three points off of last season's mark, Schultz's development seems to have plateaued since his promising rookie year of 2012-13. Much like Tyler Myers has since leaving Buffalo for Winnipeg, Schultz would have a better chance at tapping into his full potential if he was traded to a more competitive squad than the Oilers, a perennial doormat.
Taylor Hall LW EDM 2 hours ago
Hall tallied an empty-net goal and went plus-3 in Monday's win over the Avalanche.
Though the Oilers' fate was sealed long before Hall first began experiencing leg issues in late January, the team has delivered some inspired play since their top forward returned to the lineup. In Hall's first five games back from injury, the Oilers have won four times, scoring four goals in all the victories. He's unsurprisingly been a central figure in the team's attack, accruing two goals, three assists, and a plus-4 rating while putting 13 shots on goal.
Joe Colborne C CGY 3 hours ago
Colborne notched a power-play assist in Monday's win over the Stars.
Since an eight-assist October, Colborne's offensive numbers have been steadily on the decline. Even with the helper in Monday's game, Colborne finishes March with just three points, his lowest output for any month this season. He's functional enough as a depth forward in real-life terms for the Flames, but fantasy owners shouldn't look to him for much assistance.
Raphael Diaz D CGY 3 hours ago
Diaz potted a goal in Monday's win over the Stars.
Diaz has held down a regular role on the Flames' blue line during the second half with Ladislav Smid (neck) out for the season, but it hasn't resulted in an uptick in production. The 29-year-old has only two goals and two assists across 55 games.
Alex Stalock G SAN 3 hours ago
While Antti Niemi is feeling better, coach Todd McLellan relayed Tuesday that he is leaning toward starting Stalock on Wednesday against the Avs, Curtis Pashelka of San Jose Mercury News reports.
Stalock, who stopped 31 of 33 shots in Sunday's shootout loss to the Penguins, thus could be in line to make his third straight start for the Sharks on Wednesday, against an Avs squad that fell to the Oilers on Monday by a 4-1 score.
Trevor Lewis C LA 3 hours ago
Lewis registered an assist in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Blackhawks.
The helper gives the winger 24 points on the campaign, tripling his total from 2013-14. Lewis has occasionally skated alongside Anze Kopitar and Marian Gaborik on the top line this season, but those opportunities haven't occurred frequently enough to give him sustained fantasy value.
Jonathan Toews C CHI 3 hours ago
Toews set up Duncan Keith's second-period power-play goal in Monday's win over the Kings.
After tallying his fifth game-winning goal of the season a day earlier against the Jets, Toews stayed hot with his 63rd point of the season in the 4-1 victory. Toews has recorded a goal or assist in four of his last five games and finishes March with 13 points, his best output for any month this season.
Andrew Shaw C CHI 3 hours ago
Shaw picked up an assist in Monday's 4-1 win over the Kings.
Shaw was only credited with a secondary helper, but it nonetheless continues his recent trend of putting up points. He's picked up four goals and an assist over his last five contests, production that may soon warrant a promotion out of his bottom-six role.
