News: Bernier made 26 saves in Saturday's 4-1 win over Detroit.
Impact: That makes two strong starts in a row, much to the relief of his fantasy owners. He's 6-2-1 in his last nine and aside from Tuesday's embarrassing loss to the Preds, his game seems to be starting to settle. Especially when wins in that span have come at the expense of some pretty good teams (Bruins, Rangers, Lightning and Red Wings). We like him right now. Use him.
News: Komarov scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's win over the Red Wings.
Impact: Komarov continues to be a catalyst for good play from the Buds and his 14 points in 21 games have been a bit of a revelation. He has real value right now in formats that also count hits. Check your wire -- he'll likely come cheap.
News: Bozak scored two goals -- one shorthanded and the other into an empty net -- in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Red Wings. The short-handed goal stood up as the game winner.
Impact: That's two 2-point games in a row after a three-game point drought. But the fact remains that he's clipping along at close to a point-per-game pace (19 in 21) and is a worthy roll in just about every format. #careeryear
News: Nylander was hit in the head by a skate Saturday while playing with MODO of the Swedish Hockey League, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.
Impact: The eighth overall pick in this past June's NHL Entry Draft, Nylander cemented himself as the Leafs' top prospect after narrowly missing out on making the squad out of training camp. The team ultimately decided to send him back to his club team in Sweden, where he's excelled to the tune of five goals and 14 points over 12 games. The 18-year-old will likely be held under evaluation for a concussion following Saturday's incident, but it's too early to speculate how much time he might miss.
News: Bernier will be in the crease Saturday against the Red Wings, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio reports.
Impact: After coming out on the losing end of an embarrassing 9-2 defeat to the Predators earlier in the week, Bernier was able to save face by stymieing an excellent Lightning squad Thursday, holding the opposition to two goals on 28 shots. He'll look to keep the momentum going against Detroit, who will counter in the net with Jimmy Howard, who has been one of the league's best goalies in the early part of the season.
