Matt Beleskey LW ANA 11 Hrs
Beleskey potted his 15th goal -- and fourth game-winner -- in the third period of Thursday's 2-1 decision against Montreal.
Beleskey's on a wild and wonderful pace right now; if he were to maintain his current scoring rates, he'd finish an 82-game season with 36 goals and 10 assists.
David Desharnais C MON 11 Hrs
Desharnais was the whole of the Montreal offense Thursday, tallying his fourth goal of the year on a third-period power play in a 2-1 loss to Anaheim.
He's been hot of late, racking up four points over the course of a three-game streak. While Desharnais has been known to go through slumps, he typically finds a way to course correct and get his points in the end, and that seems to be happening again this year.
Carey Price G MON 11 Hrs
Price allowed only two goals on 23 shots Thursday against visiting Anaheim, but was stuck with the loss.
So ends Price's three-game winning streak, but he continues to play very well, having given up just six goals on 111 shots over the last four games.
Frederik Andersen G ANA 11 Hrs
Andersen put a stop to 23 of 24 shots to deliver a 2-1 win over the Canadiens on Thursday.
Thrown right back out there after Tuesday's ugly outing, which made his seven-game winning streak come to an end, Andersen turned in a gem against a quality opponent. Even with the four-goal mishap Tuesday, he's allowed a total of only nine tallies over the last five games.
Michael Latta C WAS 11 Hrs
Latta notched a pair of assists and picked up five for fighting during Thursday's overtime win in Columbus.
Latta's fantasy value can be summed up by the fact that Thursday's game doubled his point total for the year, but he does have a useful 24 PIM in 23 games.
Mike Green D WAS 11 Hrs
Green assisted on Troy Brouwer's late-third-period game-tying goal and Eric Fehr's overtime winner Thursday against the Blue Jackets.
The points were his first in four games since returning from a lower-body injury, but his slump goes back to before the injury, as he hadn't been on the scoresheet since Nov. 15 (a span of six scoreless games) and remains without a goal since way back on Oct. 22. As has been the norm for Green the last few years, it's been an injury-plagued season with flashes of offensive talent muted by near-constant physical ailments.
Eric Fehr RW WAS 11 Hrs
Fehr assisted on Joel Ward's game-opening goal Thursday, and later finished the game with a goal of his own 42 seconds into overtime.
Fehr has just seven goals on the season, but three of them have been game-winners. As a modest offensive contributor who doesn't provide much in the way of secondary fantasy stats, Fehr holds quite minimal value in most formats.
Jason Chimera LW WAS 11 Hrs
Chimera scored his first goal in nearly a month and added an assist for his first multi-point game of the season Thursday in an overtime win against the Jackets.
A rare offensive outburst for Chimera, who's followed up last year's career-high 42 points by getting off to the second-worst scoring rate of his career. He still has just eight points to show for 30 games, but has at least been a minor asset in PIM (22) and hits (59).
Karl Alzner D WAS 11 Hrs
Alzner scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's overtime win against Columbus.
After netting just three points in the first 25 games of the year, Alzner's picked up four over the last six, including his first two goals on the campaign. Still, he's not much of a fantasy asset, as he's never cleared 18 points in a season and doesn't make any special contributions in the secondary stats.
Kris Letang D PIT 11 Hrs
Letang was hit by two Colorado shots Thursday but didn't miss any time, skating 28:24 TOI against the Avs.
He took four shots on goal and delivered a team-high five hits. Letang also appeared injured by a Dennis Everberg check (which was penalized). The Penguins can ill-afford to lose their top defenseman, who saw his three-game goal streak come to an end.
