Dallas Stars DFS SPIN
Radek Faksa notched an assist and three shots on goal in Saturday’s 8-1 win over the Lightning. Faksa had been held scoreless with a minus-2 rating over the last seven contests. The 29-year-old snapped the drought by setting up linemate Sam Steel’s goal in the third period. As a fourth-line center, Faksa’s not expected to put up much offense, but three points over 18 outings is a bit light even for his defensive role. He’s added 15 blocked shots, 15 shots on net and a minus-1 rating this season.
Tampa Bay Lightning DFS SPIN
Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed six goals on 25 shots before being replaced by Jonas Johansson to begin the third period of Saturday’s 8-1 loss to the Stars. While Vasilevskiy still showed a little rust following his long layoff to begin the season, this blowout was mainly on Tampa Bay’s skaters, who came out flat for the afternoon contest and never found a spark. The 29-year-old netminder has gone 1-3-0 since returning from back surgery, and his .859 save percentage is a far cry from his usual Vezina-caliber upside.
