Carter Hart turned aside all 28 shots he faced in a 3-0 win over Buffalo on Sunday. The Sabres were unable to get a goal on Brian Elliott, who made 23 stops on Saturday, and Hart followed up with another shutout performance on Sunday. This was a very good bounce-back effort for Hart after he was pulled on Feb. 21 against Boston at Lake Tahoe in his last outing. This marks his sixth victory in 12 starts this season.

Pittsburgh Penguins DFS Spin

Casey DeSmith stopped 28 shots in a 2-0 loss to the New York Islanders on Sunday. DeSmith made his first start since Feb. 11 when he earned a 4-3 shootout win over the Islanders. He wasn't able to pick up his fifth win of the year on Sunday, but he played well in the contest. The Islanders went 2-for-5 on the man advantage on Sunday and that proved to be the difference. DeSmith's record slips to 4-2-0 on the year.
