Tampa Bay Lightning Fantasy Spin

Louis Domingue allowed two goals on 24 shots in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings. It was a fairly easy night for Domingue who was beat through traffic with 56 seconds left in regulation by Anthony Mantha to make this one interesting late. Tampa's backup goaltender will see his record improve to an incredible 20-5-0 with a 2.88 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage.

Toronto Maple Leafs Fantasy Spin

Frederik Andersen allowed two goals on 33 shots in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers. It looked like Andersen was going to get a shutout with the Maple Leafs up 3-0 late in the game but Toronto allowed a couple of goals in the final two minutes to make this one interesting. Regardless, Andersen will see his record improve to 33-13-4 with a 2.56 goals-against-average and a .924 save percentage.
