Frederik Andersen allowed three goals on 31 shots during Friday’s 5-3 win over the Nashville Predators. The Hurricanes had a 4-1 lead in the third period, but the Preds managed to make the game close with two late goals. Andersen put his small two-game winless streak to bed. He has a 26-7-2 record with a 2.10 goals-against-average and a .927 save percentage this season. Andersen will continue to be one of the top fantasy options at his position between now and the end of the season.

Tristan Jarry allowed four goals on 29 shots in Thursday’s 4-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Jarry was heavily out-duelled by his counter-part, Jack Campbell. The 26-year-old is not the sole reason why the Penguins lost to the Maple Leafs, however when his team needed to provide them with a big save, the goaltender did not deliver. Jarry owns a 25-9-6 record with a 2.25 goals-against average and .923 save percentage.
