It's that time of the year again.  For those of you who haven't seen this post in the past, I will break down every team's schedule for fantasy hockey playoffs i.e. starting on this coming Monday, 4/4.  I will note when a team has a back to back or a light day.  A light day is a day where there are four or less games on the schedule, with the exception of Wednesday, 4/27.  I am including that day where there are five games because it's the last day of the season where you'll need streaming, as the last two days both have a lot of games.  I will do the teams in alphabetical order so it's easy to find everyone, and next to each team, there will be (A,B,C,D).  Those numbers will be how many games the team has in each of the four weeks left in the season.  For example, (4,2,3,3) means they have four games from 4/4 - 4/10, two games from 4/11 -4/17, etc.  This post is going to be extremely long, so it will be broken into two parts, with part two coming on Monday.  If you have a specific question about a team next week that will be in part two and you need it answered immediately, please let it be known in the comments section and I'll answer it for you.  And away we go!
With no games over the weekend due to the All-Star game, there's not much to report on my end.  For the next few weeks, the schedule is quite wacky since this was supposed to be a break for the Olympics.  I'm going to do a quick rundown of this week and what we're looking at so everyone can plan accordingly.  Let's get to it! The Senators play five games this week.  Five!  There are plenty of teams that have 0 or 1 (I'll get to those later).  There are two sets of back-to-back for Ottawa, including tonight and tomorrow. 
Those of you that have been patient holding Evander Kane for almost four months were rewarded on Saturday night.  Kane played his first game of the season with the Oilers and went right on McDavid's wing.  Kane scored in the first period and finished with three shots in the 7-2 win over the Canadiens.  He's still available in 50% of ESPN leagues and very close to that on other sites.  Kane is a must own immediately, and if you use FAAB, you should bid a large amount of your budget.  Yes, he could do something stupid and be banished, but the upside is too high for him to be on waivers.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the weekend:
It's that time again. Friday/Sunday stream targets to finish out the week. Get those claims in today so you don't miss out! Unless you're in one of them fancy same-day adds leagues. I love those. Note: For the sake of uniformity and convenience on my part, only players rostered in less than 50% of Yahoo leagues will be included. Also, a “***” denotes a priority stream, in my humble opinion.
Things have changed quite a bit with goaltending in the NHL since I started writing at Razzball. When I started, there were tons of workhorses with very few teams using a platoon.  Now, more than half of the teams have a duo where the backup is getting at least 1/3 of the starts, if not a complete split.  Among the few workhorses that we have left, there are only six that I completely trust to be a #1 goalie this year.  I am breaking down all of the goalies in the NHL into tiers (and ranking them within in each tier), but be sure to understand how your league format can change the value of certain players.  For example, if you're in a head to head league, Marc-Andre Fleury is going to be more valuable than in a roto league because the volume should be there.  In a roto league where you have a set number of starts, someone like Ilya Sorokin, who, barring injury, should start 35-40 games, gets a boost because the quality of starts matters a lot more than volume.  If you have specific questions, ask them in the comments section, but I'll have a quick note on everyone when necessary.  Let's get to it!
It's no surprise that the Sharks gave up five goals on Saturday.  They've continually allowed a lot of goals and are arguably the best matchup you can hope your players are facing at the moment.  It was the top line's turn for the Blues as they combined for eleven points.  Ryan O'Reilly and David Perron each had a goal and three assists while Jordan Kyrou scored two goals and added an assist.  Perron is now above a point per game and RoR is exactly at it.  Kyrou cooled off after a hot start, but he's cemented himself as the third member of this line.  The schedule gets pretty tough going forward for the Blues, but I still think I would hold Kyrou in all formats.  The upside is through the roof and with the Blues in more of a battle for a playoff spot than they would have anticipated going into the season, I expect the top line to continue getting big minutes.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the weekend:
As far as feel good stories go, Troy Grosenick is near the top of the list for the season.  Grosenick, a 31 year old with only two previous NHL games in 2014, was forced into action for the Kings on Wednesday following Cal Petersen going on the COVID list.  To say Grosenick rose to the moment would be an understatement.  He saved 33 of 34 shots that he faced in the 5-1 win over the Ducks.  You have to love a journeyman coming in and having success.  All of a sudden, Grosenick could get some starts in the near term.  If you're in a deep league and desperate for starts, you can roll the dice on him.  With LA's next six games against Colorado, St. Louis, and Vegas, it's definitely a gamble, but the Kings have been a massive surprise so maybe Grosenick will be the next guy to keep them afloat.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights:
We're only two days away from the start of the season!  I hope you're as excited as I am.  For today's post, I'm going to give you ten bold predictions for this upcoming season and why I feel that way.  Let me know your thoughts on them below.  Let's get to it! 1) Evgeni Malkin leads the league in points.
