2/22/2017 Calvin Pickard, Col, G
Pickard turned aside 30 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Kings.

Analysis: Playing behind an anemic Avalanche offense continues to plague Pickard, who has a solid .940 save percentage in his last four starts but has won only once in that span.
2/22/2017 Peter Budaj, LA, G
Budaj made 24 saves in Tuesday's 2-1 win in Colorado.

Analysis: It was the second straight game in which Budaj allowed only one goal following a rough five-game stretch in which he surrendered 19, but it wasn't exactly a performance that should provide fantasy owners much confidence. Budaj admitted that he had help from the posts, saying "four or five times. A couple times pretty heavy. ... Sometimes you get the bounces, so it's great.''
2/22/2017 Mikko Rantanen, Col, RW
Rantanen scored for the third consecutive game Tuesday.

Analysis: The 20-year-old is quickly proving worthy of the No. 10 overall pick in the 2015 draft. He ranks second on the Avalanche with 14 goals, including eight in the past 13 games to go with three assists.
2/22/2017 Tanner Pearson, LA, LW

Schmaltz had a goal and two assists for a career-best three points while posting a plus-5 in Tuesday's win at Minnesota.

Analysis: The career night for the rookie came two days before his 21st birthday. He's turned into a viable fantasy option since being placed on a line with captain Jonathan Toews. Schmaltz is a plus-11 over Chicago's past six games, recording two goals and five assists.
2/22/2017 Sean Monahan, Cgy, C
