Columbus Blue Jackets Fantasy Spin

Elvis Merzlikins turned aside all 41 shots he faced in Saturday's 5-0 victory against the New Jersey Devils. Merzlikins didn't have an NHL shutout until last Saturday in Vegas - now he has three. He has rattled off four straight victories, blanking the opponent three times, and he is now 8-6-4 with a 2.36 goals-against average and .928 save percentage. Merzlikins has been impressive, and is actually going a lot better than Sergei Bobrovsky, who left in free agency for the Florida Panthers. Merzlikins has quickly emerged as a must-start fantasy option in seasonal play and DFS.

New York Rangers Fantasy Spin

Alexandar Georgiev allowed two goals on 40 shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over the New York Islanders. Georgiev got to play the Islanders twice this week. Not only did he stop 70 of 74 shots, he also managed to come away with two victories. The Rangers got the win tonight thanks to a power-play goal from Chris Kreider in the final minute of play. Georgiev now owns a 12-9-1 record this season. There continues to be rumors suggesting that he could be on his way out of New York. For now, it looks like he'll split starts with Henrik Lundqvist and Igor Shesterkin.
