Mikhail Sergachev had the game of the weekend, scoring two goals and two assists on three shots in the 6-3 win over the Capitals.  However, I was starting this post with Sergachev after watching the first ten minutes of the game.  Sergachev moved to the first power play unit and immediately delivered, with one goal and one primary assist coming there.  That is a massive boon to his value.  Whether it lasts, who is to say?  I would bet against it staying that way for the whole season, which is why I wouldn't panic if I owned Victor Hedman.  However, in the short term, this is enough to make Sergachev a #2 defenseman in a 12 man league, with upside to be a #1.  Getting to feed Stamkos and Kucherov for shots over and over again is a godsend to fantasy value.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the weekend:
Kevin Fiala's first two games for the Kings left a lot to be desired.  He didn't generate much in terms of chances, he took a stupid penalty in their opener against Vegas, and his ice time suffered as a result.  His old team, the Wild, were coming off giving up seven goals against the Rangers and were big favorites to get their first win of the season.  Instead, the Wild gave up seven goals again, with the Los Angeles top line leading the way.  Fiala scored a goal and two assists with six shots in the 7-6 win, while Anze Kopitar dished three assists and Adrian Kempe scored two goals and an assist with three shots and four PIM.  My biggest takeaway from this trio in the early going is that I was too low on Kempe this season.  While he's not the focal point of the power play anymore, he's still vital to its success, and the addition of Fiala strengthened the top line.  All of them are easy holds at the moment and I don't expect that to change.  Let's take a look at what else happened on Friday and Saturday:
Since Dougie Hamilton went down with a broken jaw, the Devils have been in a massive tailspin.  It got much worse over the last two nights as Toronto beat them 6-4 and 7-1 going into the All-Star Break.  The hope is that Hamilton will be back after the break, and it's obvious that they need him on the blue line.  Toronto was led by Mitch Marner, who had three goals and four assists with nine shots between the top games.  Marner has multiple points in six of his last seven games, including a goal in all seven games.  I wrote a couple weeks ago that Marner was about to get hot and get past the point per game mark, but he did it much faster than I anticipated.  It helps that he moved to the top line again, as Auston Matthews had four goals and two assists between the two games.  When these two are clicking, it's as dangerous of a combo that there is in the league.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights:
One of the best coaches of the past two decades finally received another chance.  Bruce Boudreau was hired by the Canucks and promptly won his first game 4-0.  Thatcher Demko had a 31 save shutout and looks to be the biggest beneficiary of the coaching change.  Boudreau has always had a great defensive system that inflated the numbers of his goaltenders.  Dubnyk was never that good of a goalie, but he was great in fantasy.  Same goes with the Washington guys earlier, or the other Wild goaltenders.  Demko has the chance to be a bottom end #1 now.  I'd also expect the stars on the Canucks to start turning things around.  I still think the roster is incredibly flawed, but this is a huge win for the Canucks in real life and for us in fantasy.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights: 
"Joonas Donskoi is pushing towards being an elite streamer.  Donskoi has eleven points in the past nine games while he received some shifts on the top PP unit on Monday as well."  And that's me quoting me from two days ago!  Well, Donskoi is certainly at that level now.  Donskoi had a hat trick in the first period on Wednesday, adding an assist and six shots in the 9(!)-3 win over the Coyotes.  Donskoi's third goal was on the PP with the top unit which does wonders for his value.  While he's this hot, Donskoi is worth holding.  I don't necessarily expect it to last, but he could easily stay an elite streamer for the rest of the season.  The way the Avalanche are playing right now, I want as much to do with their offense as possible.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights:
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:
What's the worst spot for a goaltender to start right now?  Probably against Toronto on the road.  Well, Matt Murray had that exact spot on Thursday, and did the exact opposite of what most expected.  In a game where Toronto's expected goal total was pushing 4, Murray stopped all 38 shots he faced, shutting out the powerhouse Maple Leafs 3-0.  Murray's upside is undeniable; it's just a matter of keeping him on the ice and the defense in front of him not being a total mess.  For now, expect the Pens to give him the vast majority of the starts, meaning you can safely cut Casey DeSmith.  The Penguins schedule is fairly soft over the next couple of weeks, so feel safe rolling Murray.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights:
