Washington Capitals at Buffalo Sabres
Braden Holtby vs Linus Ullmark
Braden Holtby kicked aside 29 shots in the Capitals’ 3-1 win against the Canadiens on Saturday night. The only blemish against Holtby came early in the second period. Other than that, just as he’s been all year, Holtby has been tough to beat. After giving up three goals in two games in a row, Holtby rebounded nicely in this one. His 22 wins lead the NHL, plus his 1.92 GAA and .932 SV% are still impressive, still does not reflect his recent play as of late.
Linus Ullmark turned aside 19 of 21 shots in Tuesday’s 2-0 loss to the New Jersey Devils.
The 22-year-old was beaten late in the second period and then again early in the third frame. His record now falls to 5-7-2 with a 2.64 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage. Ullmark has had a tough go at things recently, registering just one win in his last eight starts (1-5-2).
Condon has not won a game since December 1st against Columbus, a span of seven starts. Through 10 games in the month, Condon has allowed 24 goals and posted an .881 save percentage.
Ben Bishop gave up two goals on 32 shots in the Lightning’s 5-2 win against the Blue Jackets on Saturday night. Bishop has 15 total wins, but he has been one of the better netminders from a ratios perspective — 2.00 GAA, .927 SV%, both of which are top 10 in the league. He has given up two goals in three consecutive games.
Dating back to his five-goal effort against Montreal on Nov. 25th, he’s 4-6-1 without consecutive victories. Seven times Lundqvist has allowed at least three goals, which includes two separate streaks of three games. In total he’s allowed 38 goals over the last four weeks. To be fair, he still holds a 6-9-3 record with a 2.41 GAA and a .924 save percentage this season.
Pekka Rinne gave up three goals on 23 shots in the Predators’ 3-2 loss to the Red Wings on Saturday night. He allowed a goal in each period. Rinne has posted a save percentage below .910 in four of his past six games.
Petr Mrazek made 24 saves in the Red Wings’ 3-2 win against the Predators on Saturday night. It’s not easy on fantasy owners, but the Mrazek-Jimmy Howard tandem is performing quite well. Mrazek has allowed nine total goals over his past five games. He has a 2.29 GAA and .924 SV% this season.
Devan Dubnyk has lost his last three games and his wrist was cut by a puck during Sunday’s practice, so Minnesota will turn to Kuemper for the start. Kuemper has won his past three appearances and he has allowed just three goals during that span
Los Angeles Kings at Vancouver Canucks
Jonathan Quick vs Jacob Markstrom
Jacob Markstrom blocked 32 shots in the Canucks’ 2-1 overtime win against the Oilers on Saturday night. With Ryan Miller day-to-day with muscle cramps, Markstrom more than did his job. He gave up a goal in the first, and that was it. Markstrom has started to settle in lately, giving up four goals in his past three starts. He has a 2.52 GAA and .917 SV%.
Coach Patrick Roy announced Saturday that Semyon Varlamov will face Arizona on Sunday and that Reto Berra will miss about 10 days with an ankle injury. This will mark Pickard’s first start of the 2015-16 campaign.
Jones has given the Sharks the goaltending that has been missing the last couple of seasons as he is 15-10-2 with a 2.39 GAA and a .916 save percentage. Fantasy fans hope that Quick is right.
