Kuemper Strong in Loss to Panthers
Darcy Kuemper made 37 saves in a 4-2 loss to the Panthers on Thursday. He allowed three goals. Kuemper was the busier of Thursday’s two goaltenders — opponent Sergei Bobrovsky made just 20 saves. And Kuemper was the reason the game was as tight as it was. It was a strong performance, but a rare one for the struggling goalie. Kuemper has lost the starter’s gig, and since the December holiday break, he is 3-7-0 with one shutout and 35 goals allowed. He has allowed five goals in four of those losses. You may want to go with a different option in your blue paint until the Caps find their game again.
Pastrnak adds Two Helpers vs. Canucks
David Pastrnak notched two assists in Thursday’s 4-0 win over Vancouver. Pastrnak added a team-high six shots on net, two hits, two PIM, one blocked shot and a plus-2 rating. Both of his helpers came inside the first minute of the second period as Boston put the game out of reach. The 27-year-old superstar has seven multi-point performances in the last 10 games, and he sits third in the NHL scoring race with 75 points in 51 games, as well as tied for third with Nikita Kucherov at 33 goals.
