Insight: That's not saying much since Boston won, 4-0. Girgensons had four shots, a hit and had an even rating. On a night the Sabres were shut out, fantasy owners should take that.

Insight: Boston finally played the way we expect them to all season. Even if it was against Buffalo, Boston was impressive, winning 4-0. Hamilton had his first goal of the season and finished plus-three.

Description: Canadiens goaltender Carey Price will get the nod Saturday night against Colorado.
Insight: Price has played poorly with a 3.75 GAA and .874 save percentage, but that should not sway owners into benching one of the best goalies in the NHL.

Description: Wild goalie Darcy Kuemper took his first loss of the season Friday against the Ducks.
Insight: He had two shutouts in his first two starts of the season, but could not keep that trend going on Friday. Kuemper stopped 24-of-26 shots, and is now 2-1-0 with a 0.67 goals against average and a .972 save percentage. Owners scoop him up, if Kuemper is still available.

Description: Ducks winger Corey Perry continued his hot start to the season Friday against Minnesota.

Description: Oilers goalie Ben Scrivens played well in Friday's loss to Vancouver.
Insight: He stopped 28-0f-29 shots, but is now 0-3 with a 4.10 goals against average, and a .848 save percentage. Scrivens should be on waivers, or at best on fantasy owners' benches.

Description: Canucks goalie Ryan Miller earned his first shutout with the team, in a 2-0 win over Edmonton.
Insight: So far so good for Miller and Vancouver, as he is now 3-0-0 with a 1.95 goals against average, and a .927 save percentage. It is early, but this signing is looking like a steal. Fantasy owners, start Miller with confidence.

Insight: He added an assist as well, and now has six points on the season. Sedin had a +2 rating, along with the one shot on goal. If he is able to stay healthy, Sedin will be a dynamic fantasy player, yet again.

Description: Predators goalie Pekka Rinne shutout the Jets on Friday.
Insight: He stopped all 29 shots faced, and is well on his way in rebounding from an injury-plagued 2013-14 season. Rinne has potential to be an elite goaltender this season.

Description: Winnipeg goalie Ondrej Pavelec stopped 25-of-27 shots in Friday's 2-0 loss to Nashville.

Description: Nashville winger James Neal scored his first goal as a Predator on Friday against Winnipeg.
Insight: He added the insurance goal in Nashville's 2-0 win. Neal will most likely be unable to produce the way he did in Pittsburgh, but should be around the 50-point mark this season.

Description: Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard picked up his second victory of the season on Friday night.
Insight: He stopped 23-of-24 shots, for a .958 save percentage. Howard continues to be a solid option in net for fantasy owners.

Description: Sabres goalie Jhonas Enroth took a tough-luck loss Friday against Florida.
Insight: He stopped 34-of-35 shots, but Buffalo was unable to give Enroth any support, as the Sabres fell 1-0. Enroth is not a recommended fantasy play, moving forward.

Description: Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo earned his first shutout of the season.
Insight: It was also his and the team's first win of 2014-15. Luongo stopped all 26 shots, but will continue to be a risky play in regards to wins, as Florida is not a projected playoff team.
Johan Franzen, RW, DET10/17/2014 9:40:00 PM
Description: Red Wings right wing Johan Franzen left Friday's game with a lower-body injury.

Description: Oilers center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins could return for Friday's game against the Vancouver.
Insight: He missed the past two games. Nugent-Hopkins put up a career-best 56 points last season and should be back on the top line with Jordan Eberle and Taylor Hall.

Description: Montreal right wing Brendan Gallagher had three points against the Bruins on Thursday night.
Insight: It was a solid game for Gallagher, as he recorded two goals and an assist, along with four shots on goal and a +2 rating. Owners need to keep tabs on him, if he is still on waiver wires.
P.A. Parenteau, RW, MON10/16/2014 10:33:00 PM
Description: Canadiens right wing P.A. Parenteau scored his first two goals as a Canadien.
Insight: The second goal was an empty net, power-play goal. Parenteau also had 5 shots on goal, but a -1 rating on the night. He is looking to get to the 30-goal mark, yet again.
Carey Price, G, MON10/16/2014 10:32:00 PM
Description: Canadiens goaltender Carey Price was good enough to earn victory over Boston.
Insight: He stopped 25-of-29 shots on goal, but still received his third win of the season. It is a welcomed sight for owners, as Price was able to get the victory without playing his best.
Tuukka Rask, G, BOS10/16/2014 10:30:00 PM
Description: Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask was pulled on Thursday night against the Canadiens.
Insight: He let up five goals on 23 shots, and is off to a 2-3-0 start to the season. Owners should not be concerned, as the reigning Vezina Trophy winner is bound to get back on track.
Loui Eriksson, RW, BOS10/16/2014 10:27:00 PM
Description: Bruins winger Loui Erksson scored in Thursday's loss to Montreal.
Insight: He added an assist as well, and was +2 on the night. Eriksson, just like a bunch of the Bruins' forwards will be solid fantasy plays all season long.
Zdeno Chara, D, BOS10/16/2014 10:26:00 PM
Description: Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara recorded his first point of the season.
Insight: It was a goal, and fantasy owners hope this gets Chara going. He was -3 on the night, but that should be considered a minor hiccup for the great defenseman.
Craig Anderson, G, OTT10/16/2014 10:24:00 PM
Description: Senators goalie Craig Anderson stopped 28-of-31 shots against the Avalanche on Thursday night.
Insight: He earned his second victory of the season, and should be considered an under-the-radar goaltender, early in the season.
Bobby Ryan, LW, OTT10/16/2014 10:22:00 PM
Description: Senators winger Bobby Ryan scored his first goal of the season Thursday against Colorado.
Insight: He also had five shots on goal. Ryan should be able to produce around 30 goals, and is a solid fantasy option, moving forward.
Nathan MacKinnon, C, COL10/16/2014 10:21:00 PM
Description: Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon had two assists and seven shots on goal in Thursday's loss to Ottawa.
Insight: Owners are hoping this game gets him going, as MacKinnon had only one point coming into Thursday. There is no need to worry however, as he is a stud of a player.

Description: San Jose center Patrick Marleauscored his third goal of the season.
Insight: Marleau is off to solid start, and now has five points through four games. Owners will hope he keeps this going throughout the entire season.
Jaroslav Halak, G, NYI10/16/2014 10:09:00 PM
Description: Islanders goalie Jaroslav Halak has now won all three starts this season.
Insight: He did not play particulary well, stopping 20-of-23 shots, but did just enough to get the shootout win. Halak still may be on waivers, so owners need to be aware of that.
Alex Stalock, G, SJS10/16/2014 10:08:00 PM
Description: Sharks goalie Alex Stalock played well in Thursday's shootout loss.
Insight: He stopped 42-of-45 shots, and has played well in both of his starts this season. Antti Niemi is the Sharks number one goalie, but has a short leash, and Stalock will continue to be waiting in the wings.
Kyle Okposo, RW, NYI10/16/2014 10:06:00 PM
Description: Islanders right wing Kyle Okposo notched his second goal of the season against the Sharks.
Insight: He also scored in the shootout, and has helped the Islanders to a 4-0-0 start. Owners, get Okposo into your lineups.
John Tavares, C, NYI10/16/2014 10:04:00 PM
Description: Islanders center John Tavares continued his stellar start to the 2014-15 season.
Insight: He had two assists on the night, and now has nine points on the season. Tavares has a great chance to finish as a top-three fantasy player this season.
Anton Khudobin, G, CAR10/16/2014 10:02:00 PM
Description: Carolina goaltender Anton Khudobin played well in a shootout loss to the Rangers.
Insight: He gave up only one goal on 34 shots, and is making a case for more playing time. Him and Cam Ward are essentially playing every other game, however starts like this one could help Khudobin separate himself.
Henrik Lundqvist, G, NYR10/16/2014 10:00:00 PM
Description: Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist shinedin Thursday's shootout win over Carolina.
Insight: He stopped 29-of-30 shots and did not let up a goal in the shootout either. It was Lundqvist's second win on the season, and this has a chance to really get him and the Rangers rolling.
Cory Schneider, G, NJD10/16/2014 9:58:00 PM
Description: Devils netminder Cory Schneider was pulled in Thursday's loss to Washington.
Insight: It was his first loss of the season, after winning his first three starts. Schneider stooped only 21-of-26 shots, before Scott Clemmensen relieved him in the third period. Schneider is still a solid option in net, moving forward.
Alex Ovechkin, RW, WAS10/16/2014 9:56:00 PM
Description: Capitals right winger Alex Ovechkin continued his hot start to the season Thursday against the Devils.
Insight: He scored his fifth goal of the season and now has six points through four games. It goes without saying, Ovechkin is easily a top-five fantasy option.
Damon Severson, D, NJD10/16/2014 9:55:00 PM
Description: Devils rookie defenseman Damon Severson had two goals against the Capitals on Thursday.
Insight: It was all the scoring New Jersey could muster. Severson now has three goals on the year, and owners need to consider picking him up, assuming he is still on waiver wires across fantasy leagues.
Tyler Seguin, C, DAL10/16/2014 9:52:00 PM
Description: Stars center Tyler Seguin scored his fourth goal over the past two games, on Thursday.

Description: Stars winger Jamie Benn had a goal and a +1 rating on Thursday night.
Insight: He also had three shots on goal, and now has five points on the season. Benn will continue to be an elite option at the left wing position.
Kari Lehtonen, G, DAL10/16/2014 9:48:00 PM
Description: Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen won his second game of the season on Thursday night.
Insight: He defeated the Penguins, while stopping 27-of-29 shots on goal. Lehtonen should be considered a second option at the goaltender position, moving forward.
