David Pastrnak scores 16th goal in OTL 12-07-2016
David Pastrnak RW BOS
David Pastrnak scored a goal in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals. The Bruins found themselves down 3-0 in the second period, but battled back to tie the game at three. Dominic Moore scored their first goal followed by Pastrnak and Colin Miller. Pastrnak continues to impress this season. He now has 16 goals and 22 points in 22 games. He's on pace to score 56 goals this season, but the odds of him hitting that number are slim. Still, he's been excellent. He's a must-start in all fantasy leagues.
Justin Williams scores 2G in OT win over BOS 12-07-2016
Justin Williams RW WAS
Justin Williams scored a pair of goals in Wednesday's 4-3 OT win over the Boston Bruins. Williams scored the first two goals of the game in the first period. Daniel Winnik eventually gave Washington a 3-0 lead, but the Bruins managed to score three unanswered goals to force OT. In the extra frame, it was Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom that scored the game-winner. The offensive output doubled Williams' goal total for the season. The veteran winger has four goals and three assists in 25 games this season. Those numbers are disappointing by his standards.
Frederik Andersen allows 3 goals in loss 12-07-2016
Frederik Andersen G TOR
Frederik Andersen allowed three goals on 20 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild. The Leafs goalie has now dropped back-to-back decisions and he's come out on the losing end in four of his last six games. He'll enter his next start with a 10-7-4 record, a 2.87 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage. He's a middle of the pack fantasy option at his position right now.
Devan Dubnyk makes 35 saves in win over TOR 12-07-2016
Devan Dubnyk G MIN
Devan Dubnyk stopped 35 of 37 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Wild spotted Dubnyk a 2-0 lead and they never looked back.

Dubnyk has an 11-6-3 record with a 1.65 goals-against-average and a .946 save percentage this season. Through two months, he's definitely in the Vezina Trophy conversation.

Tyler Bozak scored a goal in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild. The Leafs never had a lead in this game, but they managed to make it interesting.

Bozak now has six goals and 12 assists in 25 games this season. Ben Smith also found the back of the net for the Maple Leafs tonight.
Eric Staal scores GWG in 3-2 win over TOR 12-07-2016
Eric Staal C MIN
Eric Staal scored the game-winning goal in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Wild never trailed in this game, as they jumped out to 2-0 and 3-1 leads in the game. Staal's had an up and down season, but for the most part, he's been a solid signing. He's picked up at least one point in five of his last seven games, and he's now up to six goals and 18 points in 25 games this season. Jason Zucker and Chris Stewart also found the back of the net for Minnesota tonight.

Joonas Donskoi's production isn't at the level many hoped for following his strong postseason showing.

CSN Bay Area
Donskoi had six goals and 12 points in 24 playoff contests last year, but the 24-year-old sophomore now has just two goals and six points in 25 games this season. Sharks coach Pete DeBoer isn't too worried though as he likes the consistent effort Donskoi has brought to the table in 2016-17. The bench boss feels that eventually the points will start coming in for him as well. Donskoi seems to be seeing the upside as well. "I'm pretty happy the way I'm playing two ways," Donskoi said. "I think I'm responsible defensively and creating scoring chances, but just kind of not being able to get on the scoreboard enough. I feel confident the way I'm still playing. I'm not getting frustrated, or anything."

Taylor Hall defended his hit on Philip Larsen following Tuesday's game.

The Bergen Record
Hall smashed Larsen behind the net during the contest and the head appeared to be the principal point of contact.

Scott Hartnell's PIM is way down this season 12-07-2016
Scott Hartnell LW CLB
Scott Hartnell has just six penalty minutes in 24 games this season.

Columbus Dispatch
Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella has been happy with the team's discipline in contrast to last season and Hartnell's severe drop in PIM is a reflection of that. But while Hartnell's far more disciplined play is good for Columbus, it has been a negative for fantasy owners in certain leagues. Hartnell has scored five goals and 15 points in 24 contests so he does have some value beyond his PIM generation, but that was traditionally a big part of his appeal to fantasy owners and now it might be a thing of the past.
