Jannik Hansen RW VAN 13 Hrs
Jannik Hansen lined up with Henrik and Daniel Sedin on Sunday.
Hansen replaced David Booth who was on the top line with the Sedin twins Friday. Hansen played 16:36 minutes, almost five minutes more than he played as a bottom six forward on Friday. He had a shot on net and a couple of hits. Hansen has three goals and seven points in 22 games this season.
Chris Higgins LW VAN 13 Hrs
Christopher Higgins chipped in with two assists on Sunday.
Higgins is now playing on a line with Ryan Kesler and Mike Santorelli and the trio is really clicking. Higgins has eight goals and 17 points in 32 games including a goal and three helpers in his last four. He is worth looking at in deep pools.
Brad Boyes RW FLA 13 Hrs
Brad Boyes was a healthy scratch Sunday night.
He didn't play against the Blackhawks even though he leads the team with eight goals this season. It marked the second time he's been a healthy scratch this year. "I didn't think he competed hard enough away from the puck [against Detroit], when he didn't have the puck on his stick to get the puck back," interim coach Peter Horachek said. "There has to be accountability everywhere." Boyes has 13 points in 29 games for the low-scoring Panthers.
Brooks Laich C WAS 13 Hrs
Brooks Laich (groin) skated for the first time since November 27 on Sunday.
Laich has missed five games and will not be in the lineup on Tuesday. He skated at the Capitals practice facility while Washington played the Rangers in New York. Laich has four goals and six points in 25 games this season and has little, if any, fantasy value.
Dylan Olsen D FLA 13 Hrs
Dylan Olsen produced a goal and an assist in Sunday's 6-2 loss to Chicago.
The former first-round pick of the Blackhawks, who was traded this season to Florida as part of the Kris Versteeg deal, has two goals and two assists in his last three games. Olsen has five points and a plus-2 rating in seven matches with the Panthers.
Nate Schmidt D WAS 13 Hrs
Nate Schmidt scored his second goal in the last two games on Sunday.
It was quite a weekend for the defenseman who potted the first of his career on Saturday. He had some offensive capabilities in college hockey last season with nine goals and 32 points in 40 games so this may continue. We would wait for now and see if he is able to keep it up.
Scott Clemmensen G FLA 13 Hrs
Scott Clemmensen made his first start under interim coach Peter Horachek Sunday night.
Tim Thomas had played 14 consecutive games, so he got the night off. Clemmensen allowed six goals on 32 shots in a 6-2 thumping in Chicago. As long as Thomas stays healthy, Clemmensen probably won't see much action this campaign.
Mikhail Grabovski C WAS 13 Hrs
Mikhail Grabovski scored on a penalty shot Sunday.
It was Grabovski's ninth goal of the season and he now has 25 points in 30 games, nine more than he had in 48 games for Toronto last season. He is worth having in all but the shallowest of fantasy leagues at this time.
Milan Lucic LW BOS 13 Hrs
Milan Lucic contributed two assists in Boston's 5-2 win over Toronto on Sunday night.
The big Bruins winger stretched his point streak to four games with his two-point performance. Lucic has two goals and four helpers during his scoring spree. He has amassed 24 points, 26 penalty minutes, 101 hits and a plus-11 rating in 30 contests this year.
Carl Soderberg C BOS 13 Hrs
Carl Soderberg notched a goal and an assist Sunday against Toronto.
His two-point effort snapped a five-game scoring drought and gave him 14 points in 24 games this season. Soderberg has averaged just 13:40 of ice time per game, while playing primarily on the Bruins' third line, but he does get some secondary power-play time which is where he scored against the Leafs.
