Andrei Vasilevskiy – Tampa Bay Lightning
Schedule: Tue at STL, Thu at CHI, Sat vs. ANA
Vasilevskiy and the Lightning are finally starting to come around after a slow start to the year. There are two road games on the schedule next week, but matchups against Anaheim and Chicago make the Bolts netminder very relevant in fantasy.
Braden Holtby – Washington Capitals
Schedule: Mon vs. ANA, Wed at NYR, Sat vs. VAN
Holtby was given the night off on Friday when his team played the Canadiens, but he’s riding a personal five-game winning streak. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Holtby played all three games next week. He’s a quality fantasy option on a red-hot Caps team.
Tuukka Rask – Boston Bruins
Schedule: Tue at NJ, Thu vs. BUF, Sat vs. MIN
The Bruins game plan with their goalies is simple. Rask gets two games in a row, Jaroslav Halak gets one. That means Rask will play two games next week. The Bruins get to take on three teams that have struggled this season.
Ben Bishop – Dallas Stars
Schedule: Tue vs. VAN, Thu vs. WPG, Sat vs. CHI
The Stars have really turned things around after an ugly start. Bishop has won three games in a row and he’s held the opposition to two goals or fewer in seven straight games. The Stars will play all three of their games at home, too. He’s a good fantasy play.
Petr Mrazek – Carolina Hurricanes
Schedule: Tue at CHI, Thu vs. PHI, Sat vs. FLA
The Hurricanes went through a tough stretch last week, but they finally snapped a losing streak. Mrazek has won back-to-back starts and he should be able to build on that. He has a 9-3-1 record this season.
Jordan Binnington – St. Louis Blues
Schedule: Tue vs. TB, Thu vs. CGY, Sat vs. NSH
The Blues won’t have any easy games next week, but at least they’ll be home for all three of them. Binnington hasn’t dropped a game in regulation since Oct. 26. He’s a fine fantasy option this week.
Carey Price – Montreal Canadiens
Schedule: Tue at CBJ, Wed vs. OTT, Sat vs. NYR
Who was the first goalie to hit the 10-win mark this season? Yeah, it’s Price. He never really struggled at any point this season, but he could’ve played better. Now, he’s back to being his All-Star self. Look for Price to play at least two games next week.
Semyon Varlamov – New York Islanders
Schedule: Tue at PIT, Thu vs. PIT, Sat at SJ
The Islanders goalie situation is easy to figure out. Varlamov and Thomas Greiss just get one start each. It doesn’t matter what they do in the game, they get one game each. If that logic holds true, Varlamov will start Tuesday’s game in Pittsburgh and Saturday’s game in San Jose. The Isles are playing so well that it doesn’t matter that those games are on the road.
Frederik Andersen – Toronto Maple Leafs
Schedule: Tue at VGK, Thu at ARZ, Sat at COL
The Leafs are about to hit the road at the worst possible time. Not only is their upcoming schedule brutal, they’re also playing some terrible hockey right now. Coming away with fantasy points won’t be impossible for Andersen, but it won’t be easy.
Carter Hutton – Buffalo Sabres
Schedule: Tue vs. MIN, Thu at BOS, Sun at FLA
Tuesday’s game against Minnesota is very winnable for the Sabres, but Hutton has struggled pretty badly as of late. He has a five-game losing streak and he’s given up 10 goals in his last two outings.
