A personal favorite, Filip Forsberg, took over the game on Tuesday night, scoring four goals in the 6-0 win over the Blue Jackets.  That gives Forsberg 10 goals and 5 assists in 13 games.  Not bad, not bad.  The story is the same for Forsberg as it has been over the last five years.  When he's on the ice, he's one of the best offensive players in the league.  The problem is that he always seems to have an injury that causes him to miss a month.  He's already missed eight games so fingers crossed that he stays healthy the rest of the way.  His linemates (more on them later) have found their form as well giving Nashville a potent first line for the first time since Johansen was playing his best hockey and Arvidsson was at his peak goal scoring ability.  He has a tough matchup with Boston on Thursday, but after that, Nashville has some easy opponents which could let Forsberg continue this goal scoring run.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights:
The hits keep coming for Tampa Bay.  Brayden Point is now out indefinitely after an ugly crash into the boards on Saturday.  The Tampa lineup is starting to get pretty thin.  Stammer has been forced to go back to center, with Alex Barre-Boulet getting time on the top line.  Barre-Boulet scored in Sunday's game against the Wild.  He's a decent streamer now.  The more interesting player is Anthony Cirelli, who scored two goals on five shots with two PIM on Sunday playing over 24 minutes.  It's pretty clear that Cirelli is going to be the top minute getter for Tampa for the time being.  I think he becomes a must hold in all formats.  Let's take a look at what else happened around the league this 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.
Joel Eriksson Ek took a big step forward last season, one of the main reasons the Wild made the playoffs with relative ease.  It was more on the defensive end than offensively, but he showed plenty of offense with 19 goals in 56 games.  On Tuesday, Eriksson Ek controlled the game for the Wild, scoring a hat trick on seven shots in the 6-5 OT win over the Jets.  Eriksson Ek averaged just over two shots per game last season, but he now has twelve shots in three games.  The minutes are going to be there so there's a chance he could push into bottom end hold territory.  For now, he's an elite streamer.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights:
Loyal Razzballers will know my fandom of Martin Necas goes back to when he was drafted by Carolina.  I was perplexed that he fell to 12th overall, and a couple of the guys in front of him are well on their way to becoming busts.  Thankfully, Necas is on his way to breaking out towards stardom.  Necas had two goals and two assists with six shots on Saturday leading Carolina to a 4-3 win over the Lightning.  That brings Necas up to 28 points in 30 games this season and over two shots per game, a big jump on ever level.  The only thing holding him back was playing time and that is certainly not a concern any more.  Somehow, Necas is still available in almost 50% of leagues.  Therefore, we have a few steps to take.  Go to your league's waiver wire, see if he's available, add him immediately if he is, and then come back to see what else happened over the weekend!
Playing time has been the only thing that has stopped Alex Tuch from breaking out in the past.  It looked like he was going into the top six two seasons ago, but then the Golden Knights acquired Stone keeping Tuch on the third line.  Well, this season that has finally changed even though Stone is still on the team, mostly because the Karlsson line plays less minutes.  On Saturday, Stone left the game with a minor injury which led Tuch to being double shifted.  Even before that, Tuch was on a tear and it'll only get better with his increased workload.  Tuch scored two goals on six shots on Saturday after scoring a goal on Friday.  That brings Tuch up to 12 goals in 21 games, an excellent mark.  Sure, his shooting percentage is unsustainable, but the increase in minutes could counteract that a bit.  Tuch is still available in over 40% of leagues, so if you're lucky enough to be in one of them, grab him now.  Let's take a look at what else happpened over the weekend:
Nino Niederreiter's first season in Carolina couldn't have gone any better with 14+16 in 36 games.  Last season really couldn't have gone worse with 11+18 in 67 games.  Well, this year has certainly been closer to 2018-19 and we can be thankful for that in fantasy.  Niederreiter scored two goals and an assist with three shots on Friday before dishing an assist on Saturday, adding six shots.  That brings Nino to 9+3 in 16 games with over three shots per game, 13 PIM, and a great +11 rating.  The second line in Carolina has been incredible, sparked by Niederreiter and Trocheck's revival.  He's an easy hold in all formats for the time being.  I wish that the minutes were a bit higher, but considering what Nino is doing with what he's getting, there can be some growth with additional minutes, namely in the assist department.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the weekend:
One of my bold predictions from the season that already looks awful is that Chicago would be the worst team in the league.  Their season has turned around on the back of somebody who was expected to be a tertiary option.  Kevin Lankinen was third fiddle going into the season behind Delia and Subban, but that has changed quickly.  Lankinen stopped 34 of 35 shots that he faced on Tuesday in the 2-1 OT win over the Stars.  That brings Lankinen's save percentage to above .930 and a GAA approaching two.  I didn't imagine a Chicago goalie would even be worth streaming this season outside of playing against Detroit, but Lankinen has played his way into being an easy hold.  Will it last?  It's impossible to say with goalies.  Either way, he should he held until he cools off, assuming that eventually happens.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights:
