Fantasy top 30 goalies: Sabres' Ullmark gets chance

Every Thursday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey staff writer David Satriano provides in-depth goalie analysis. From updated weekly top 30 rankings to trending players and more, Satriano is your go-to guy for fantasy goalie advice all season long.


The Buffalo Sabres traded for goalie Robin Lehner hoping that he would be a stabilizing force for them. Unfortunately, Lehner sustained an ankle injury in the opening game of the season and likely won't return until December.

Backup Chad Johnson has not performed well (3-6-0, 3.16 goals-against average, .881 save percentage) and has allowed three or more goals in each of his past three starts, which is why rookie Linus Ullmark is getting his chance.

Ullmark has started the past two games and three of the past five, and gets the call Thursday against the Tampa Bay Lightning. After allowing four goals on 28 shots in a 4-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Oct. 24, he's been impressive, winning each of his past two games and stopping 56 of 58 shots. He should see majority of the starts for the Sabres while Lehner is out and is owned in six percent of Yahoo leagues.

Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier was placed on injured reserve Thursday because of a lower-body injury, according to the National Post, meaning he will miss at least their games Friday against the Detroit Red Wings and Saturday against the Washington Capitals.

Bernier last played Oct. 31 against the Pittsburgh Penguins. He was the backup to James Reimer on Monday against the Dallas Stars and was out of the lineup Wednesday against the Winnipeg Jets.

In games this season Bernier is 0-6-1 in seven games with a 3.02 goals-against average and .899 save percentage.

Unmasked: Fleury has improved tactically, mentally

VANCOUVER -- Ask Pittsburgh Penguins goaltending coach Mike Bales why Marc-Andre Fleury was one of the NHL's best goalies through the first month of this season and perhaps it's fitting his answer involves baseball, a sport where legends are made in October.

When it comes to Fleury's improvements since Bales arrived in 2013, one the biggest was getting the athletic goaltender to stop swinging for the fences when he struggled.

"He was almost like a home run hitter who struck out three times, so he wants to hit a home run to prove to his teammates that 'I can still hit a home run,'" Bales told NHL.com. "Sometimes those guys get back up there and swing even harder and it just compounds the situation."

The St. Louis Blues scored three consecutive goals in the second period to overcome a 5-2 deficit and Vladimir Tarasenko (1-1—2) scored with 1:06 remaining in overtime to snap the Chicago Blackhawks' six-game home winning streak and improve to 9-3-1.

* Tarasenko leads the Blues with 12 points (7-5—12). Alexander Steen scored twice and is tied with Tarasenko for the Blues lead with seven.

* Jake Allen made 27 saves to earn the victory after relieving Brian Elliott in the first period. Per Elias, Allen is the first Blues goaltender to make 27 or more saves and earn a win in a relief appearance since Pat Jablonski (31 saves) on Feb. 26, 1991 against the Blackhawks (3-1 W).

* Robby Fabbri (1-1—2) recorded the first multipoint game of his NHL career (seven games), while Jay Bouwmeester (1-1—2) and David Backes (1-1—2) also both had a goal and an assist.
