Carey Price solid in loss to Anaheim 03-05-2015
Carey Price G MON
Carey Price stopped 30-of-32 shots in a 3-1 loss to Anaheim on Wednesday. Price was simply out-dueled by John Gibson opposite of him on this night. The loss was his second straight but this one was certainly not his fault. He still remains one of the top favorites for Vezina trophy with his outstanding 36-13-3 record to go with his league leading 1.92 goals-against-average and .935 save percentage. He is simply the best fantasy goalie in hockey right now.
Alex Galchenyuk scores 19th in loss 03-05-2015
Alex Galchenyuk C MON
Alex Galchenyuk scored his 19th goal of the year in a 3-1 loss to Anaheim on Wednesday. Galchenyuk broke the goose egg with less than two minutes to go but it wasn't enough to rally the Habs in Anaheim. Montreal fired 38 shots at Ducks' goalie John Gibson but could only get the one goal past him. Andrei Markov and David Desharnais drew assists on the lone marker. Galchenyuk has 19 goals and 40 points in 62 games in his breakout out year.
Francois Beauchemin leads Ducks past Habs 03-05-2015
Francois Beauchemin D ANA
Francois Beauchemin potted a goal in Anaheim's 3-1 win over Montreal on Wednesday. He added six shots and two pims and was plus-2 in an overall nice fantasy night. Beauchemin now has five goals in his last 11 games and seven points during that stretch. With 18 points in 48 games he is a middle of the pack fantasy blue-liner. Cam Fowler and Rickard Rakell each scored goals in the Ducks win.
John Gibson outduels Carey Price 03-05-2015
John Gibson G ANA
John Gibson made 38 saves in a 3-1 Anaheim win over Montreal on Wednesday. Gibson was very close to the shutout in this game but the Canadiens scored with less than two minutes left in the game. Nevertheless, he was outstanding on this night as he calmly out-played Carey Price on the other end. Frederik Andersen was very good in his first start back from injury last night in Arizona so it will be interesting to see how the Ducks spread out the starts for the rest of the season. Gibson is 9-5 with a 2.41 goals-against-average and .924 save percentage in 15 appearances. He is a great start whenever Andersen is unable to go or needs a rest.

Marc-Andre Fleury G PIT
Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 19-of-222 shots in a 3-1 loss to Colorado on Wednesday. The loss snapped Fleury's three game winning streak. He has allowed three goals in three straight games. The Penguins' number one guy is still having a solid season though with a 29 wins, a 2.21 goals-against-average and .923 save percentage in 50 appearances this year. Start him with confidence.

The Russian stud has 12 points during a six game points streak. Malkin has 27 goals and 65 points in 58 games this season. He is one of the top fantasy players in all of hockey and everyone should know that he must be started in all formats every night.

After a slow start to the season, he has 17 goals and 43 points in 64 games this year. Jarome Iginla and Nathan MacKinnon added the other goals for Colorado.
