Calgary Flames DFS SPIN
MilanLucic posted an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Monday's 6-5 win over the Kings. Lucic went seven games without a point before assisting on an Andrew Mangiapane first-period tally Monday. The helper was Lucic's fourth of the season, and he remains in search of his first goal this year. He's added 16 shots on goal, 12 PIM, 36 hits and a minus-5 rating while logging bottom-six minutes through 15 contests, so he's not much of a factor in fantasy.
Tampa Bay Lightning DFS SPIN
Steven Stamkos scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Stars. His helper came on Alex Killorn's OT winner, and it gave Stamkos 500 assists for his career -- the second-highest total in Lightning history behind Martin St. Louis. Stamkos is also now 11 goals away from 500, a mark the future Hall of Famer will almost certainly reach this season, as he already has eight goals and 17 points through 16 games.
