Jake Allen G STL 7 Hrs
Allen stopped 15 of 17 shots in relief of Brian Elliott (lower body) on Tuesday, ending up with a shootout loss.
The Blues led 2-0 well into the third period, but Allen coughed up a pair of goals, including Alex Chiasson's game-tying tally with 41 seconds remaining. If Elliott misses time, the Blues will be counting on Allen to make most of their starts in goal for a period of time.
Boyd Gordon C EDM 7 Hrs
Gordon scored a shorthanded goal and finished plus-1 in Tuesday's loss to Dallas.
Gordon doesn't produce much offense, but he is good for about one shortie per year. With four goals in 22 games this season, Gordon's well ahead of his typical scoring pace, which says a lot about his offensive abilities.
Kari Lehtonen G DAL 8 Hrs
Lehtonen made 35 saves on 37 shots in Tuesday's victory over Edmonton.
That's three straight wins for Lehtonen now, and if he gave up four goals in one of them, well, at least he faced 41 shots in that game. All in all, he's showing good signs of getting his game on track after a disappointing start to the season.
Viktor Fasth G EDM 8 Hrs
Fasth allowed three goals on 34 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Dallas.
A pair of Tyler Seguin goals in the second period ended up giving the Stars enough cushion to beat Edmonton, and Fasth can hardly be faulted for being Seguin's latest victim. Nonetheless, he's now taken losses in three straight starts and six out of eight on the season.
John Klingberg D DAL 8 Hrs
Klingberg extended his goal streak to three games and his point streak to five in Tuesday's win over Edmonton, going plus-3 with his third marker of the year and an assist.
Klingberg's achieved near-instant stardom in his first taste of the NHL, having started with three scoreless contests before exploding for eight points over the last five games.
Tyler Seguin C DAL 9 Hrs
Seguin scored a pair of goals on five shots and went plus-2 in Tuesday's win over Edmonton.
Uh oh, he's starting another one of those super-hot streaks now. That's five goals, an assist and a plus-7 rating for Seguin over the last four games.
Jacob Trouba D WPG 9 Hrs
Trouba picked up a pair of assists on Evander Kane power-play goals -- the second an empty-netter -- in Tuesday's win over Columbus.
It's not exactly front-page news, but Trouba does have three points over the last three games after totaling just three over his first 20 contests of the year. He's had a little bit of bad puck luck, but remains superbly talented and is skating major minutes -- 24:11 on Tuesday -- for the Jets.
Blake Wheeler RW WPG 9 Hrs
Wheeler didn't score a goal among his five shots Tuesday against Columbus, but did pick up two assists and a plus-2 rating.
That's three helpers in two games for Wheeler on the heels of a three-game scoreless skid. Like most of the rest of the Jets, he's been inconsistent and unimpressive with his scoring so far this year.
Bryan Little C WPG 9 Hrs
Little scored a goal for the second consecutive game Tuesday against the Jackets, adding an assist and a plus-1 rating.
After ending a 13-game goal drought on Saturday, Little apparently decided he liked this whole 'scoring' concept and stuck with it. He's well off last year's 64-point pace, but a decent hot streak could erase his early-season struggles from fantasy owners' memories.
Andrew Ladd LW WPG 9 Hrs
Ladd scored a goal, added an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's win over Columbus.
Ladd's been right around his usual scoring rate here in the season's first quarter-plus, with 15 points in 23 contests putting him on a 53-point pace. But fantasy owners looking for the upside of 2012-13's nearly point-per-game output have to be a bit disappointed with Ladd.
