Sunday Streamers Week 18 is here! There are 9 games to look over this week and there are a lot of solid streaming options out there for you. There are nine teams playing both Saturday and Sunday this weekend. Keep an eye on the goalie rotation for Detroit, Boston, Edmonton and St. Louis, Nashville, Dallas, Ottawa, Toronto and Chicago.
Let’s get to it!
Pittsburgh Penguins vs Detroit Red Wings, 12:30pm
- Jared McCann, PIT 28% – 0G, 2A, -4, 4 PIM, 1 PPP, 11 SOG, 9 hits, 1 block in 16:27 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Robby Fabbri, DET 7% – 0G, 2A, -1, 0 PIM, 0 PPP, 7 SOG, 4 hits, 5 blocks in 14:00 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Jonathan Bernier, DET, 5% – 2-2, .901 SV%, 112 Saves, 11 GA in his last 4 games.
The Detroit Red Wings… aren’t very good. The Pittsburgh Penguins, on the other hand, are very good! Simple enough, right! No matter what the hockey gods throw at the Penguins, they’re just still good. Unfortunately, that means that most of the good options on Pittsburgh are heavily owned, considering that there aren’t many. Jared McCann is on the second line with Evgeni Malkin and Bryan Rust, he’ll figure it out, and against this team, he should figure it out very well. Robby Fabbri is returning from a jaw injury, he’s been a nice surprise for Detroit, and has been a good streaming option at various points in the year, he could figure it out again. If anyone could steal a victory for Detroit, it’s probably Jonathan Bernier. Bernier has done well on one of the most abysmal teams in the league. If Bernier gets the start against the Pens, he might be worth looking at.
Boston Bruins vs New York Rangers, 3:30pm
- Jesper Fast, NYR 2% – 0G, 2A, 0, 2 PIM, 0 PPP, 4 SOG, 6 hits, 3 blocks in 17:04 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Jake Debrusk, BOS 44% – 1G, 1A, 0, 2 PIM, 1 PPP, 9 SOG, 1 hit, 1 block in 15:53 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Karson Kuhlman, BOS, 0% – 0G, 0A, 0, 0 PIM, 0 PPP, 10 SOG, 5 hits, 1 blocks in 12:55 ATOI in his last 4 games.
Ah, a good Original Six Rivalry. This is going to be fun. Artemi Panarin is on FIRE, and… Jesper Fast is on his line! I guess someone should get him… FAS- I won’t do that to you guys. Fast plays beside Ryan Strome and The Breadman. He’ll get it going. Jake Debrusk has the luxury of playing behind one of the most stacked lines in the league. He’s good, his slump won’t last very long. Karson Kuhlman gets to, not only skate behind one of the best lines in the league, but his linemates are still Debrusk and David Krejci. Secondary scoring should be a huge factor for Boston, and hopefully, it helps here.
Edmonton Oilers vs Carolina Hurricanes, 4:00pm
- Kailer Yamamoto, EDM 23% – 2G, 2A, 1, 0 PIM, 1 PPP, 9 SOG, 3 hits, 1 block in 18:24 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Alex Chiasson, EDM 1% – 1G, 1A, -4, 0 PIM, 0 PPP, 5 SOG, 3 hits, 0 blocks in 12:57 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Jake Gardiner, CAR, 11% – 0G, 4A, -5, 6 PIM, 3 PPP, 7 SOG, 5 hits, 1 blocks in 18:53 ATOI in his last 4 games.
In the absence of Connor McDavid, the Oilers have had to shake things up a bit. Luckily, Kailer Yamamoto has made things much easier for them. Yamamoto has already been enjoying a great year. Now though, he’s on a line with Leon Draistail and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. The sky is the limit for him, grab him while you can! Although Alex Chiasson isn’t getting the same points that he did last year with Connor McDavid, he’s done pretty well for himself, and he’s in a position to do better. Although there’s not much of a significant supporting cast around him, Alex Chiasson finds himself on the Oilers’ 2nd line and their 1st PP unit. He’s a nice bet to put some numbers up. Jake Gardiner has mostly been a fantasy disappointment so far, but a recent 3 assist showing shows us that the Gardiner we know and love is still in there, somewhere. It would be very convenient for it to come out sooner than later.
Anaheim Ducks vs Vancouver Canucks, 5:00pm
- Ryan Getzlaf, ANA 42% – 1G, 1A, 0, 2 PIM, 0 PPP, 5 SOG, 7 hits, 2 blocks in 15:31 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Tanner Pearson, VAN 39% – 2G, 0A, -1, 5 PIM, 0 PPP, 7 SOG, 3 hits, 5 blocks in 18:06 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Zack MacEwen, VAN, 0% – 1G, 0A, 0, 9 PIM, 3 PPP, 4 SOG, 6 hits, 0 blocks in 10:28 ATOI in his last 4 games.
Ryan Getzlaf may not be the player he used to be, but he still has some fantasy upside! Getzlaf centres the Ducks’ first line, alongside Rickard Rakell, and could put up some points. Tanner Pearson has been a wonderful surprise in Vancouver, and finds himself on a line with Elias Pettersson. It’ll be fun to see what they can do on the 2nd line, especially against a team like Anaheim. Zack McEwen, as of now, will start on the first line, beside Bo Horvat and J.T. Miller. McEwen isn’t exactly known for his scoring prowess, but it’s hard to see how he won’t make an impact up there.
St. Louis Blues vs Nashville Predators, 6:00pm
- Zach Sanford, STL 13% – 4G, 0A, +4, 0 PIM, 0 PPP, 10 SOG, 9 hits, 2 blocks in 13:12 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Alexander Steen, STL 2% – 0G, 0A, -3, 0 PIM, 0 PPP, 4 SOG, 3 hits, 0 blocks in 13:07 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Dante Fabbro, NSH, 1% – 1G, 1A, +2, 2 PIM, 0 PPP, 10 SOG, 2 hits, 7 blocks in 21:53 ATOI in his last 4 games.
Zach Sanford scored four goals in ONE GAME?! Sanford has proved as of late that he can sure score, albeit not too consistently. A 2nd line role should help him out. Alexander Steen has slumped a bit, but with a role on the Blues’ first line, it’s only a matter of time before he sparks something. Dante Fabbro not only gets the benefit of being good, but he gets to do so beside Roman Josi, which helps with his fantasy numbers.
Dallas Stars vs Ottawa Senators, 6:00pm
- Roope Hintz, DAL 30% – 2G, 1A, +2, 0 PIM, 1 PPP, 9 SOG, 3 hits, 1 block in 15:36 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Corey Perry, DAL 2% – 0G, 0A, -2, 4 PIM, 0 PPP, 6 SOG, 3 hits, 4 blocks in 15:57 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Connor Brown, OTT, 6% – 0G, 2A, 0, 2 PIM, 0 PPP, 9 SOG, 5 hits, 1 blocks in 19:32 ATOI in his last 4 games.
Roope Hintz was a very bright spot on a Stars team that struggled out of the gate. After injury, he’s come back into a 1st line role, and looks to continue his stellar offensive season. Corey Perry isn’t the star he used to be, but as he’s used in a top 6 role, his offensive presence becomes more noticeable, just as long as he doesn’t get suspended again. Connor Brown has quietly put up a solid season, and looks to continue it against Dallas.
Columbus Blue Jackets vs New Jersey Devils, 6:00pm
- Oliver Bjorkstrand, CBJ 36% – 1G, 1A, +2, 0 PIM, 0 PPP, 11 SOG, 4 hits, 0 blocks in 20:17 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Boone Jenner, CBJ 27%, 2G, 1A, +3, 2 PIM, 1 PPP, 6 SOG, 10 hits, 3 blocks in 18:14 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Nikita Gusev, NJD, 11% – 1G, 0A, +2, 0 PIM, 0 PPP, 8 SOG, 1 hit, 0 blocks in 16:20 ATOI in his last 4 games.
Oliver Bjorkstrand has quietly emerged as a star on the Blue Jackets, and finds himself on the Jackets’ first line, something that should benefit his fantasy value. Boone Jenner isn’t the 30 goal scorer he was years ago, but as the 2C against a subpar Devils team, he could put up more of his goal scoring magic. Nikita Gusev has been slept on a bit this season, even though he’s on pace for 50 points. Gusev should benefit from more ice time in the top six, and could utilize that against Columbus.
Toronto Maple Leafs vs Buffalo Sabres, 7:00pm
- Zach Hyman, TOR 29% – 3G, 2A, +1, 2 PIM, 1 PPP, 3 SOG, 7 hits, 3 blocks in 20:13 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Alexander Kerfoot, TOR 5% – 0G, 3A, -1, 0 PIM, 0 PPP, 6 SOG, 1 hit, 2 blocks in 14:27 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Victor Olofsson, BUF, 54% – 2G, 1A, -2, 0 PIM, 1 PPP, 4 SOG, 5 hits, 3 blocks in 18:43 ATOI in his last 4 games.
The Battle of the QEW! Who can be more miserable? Zach Hyman is on FIRE. He’s playing beside John Tavares on the 2nd line, and it’s CLICKED. Hyman is a good bet to enjoy playing beside a dynamic Toronto offense, and also make plays himself. Alexander Kerfoot is finding time beside John Tavares, a man who makes everyone around him better somehow. The struggling Kerfoot has been able to find some success on the 2nd line, and it could shine against a struggling Buffalo team. Victor Olofsson has impressed in his rookie year, he’s been one of few bright spots for Buffalo this year. He’s on a line with Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart and is on their PP2. Olofsson and Co. could take advantage of a tired Toronto team with a struggling Frederik Andersen in net.
Chicago Blackhawks vs Winnipeg Jets
- Brandon Saad, CHI 11% – 2G, 1A, -2, 2 PIM, 0 PPP, 4 SOG, 0 hits, 2 blocks in 18:07 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Mason Appleton, WPG 0% – 0G, 1A, 0, 0 PIM, 0 PPP, 3 SOG, 1 hit, 0 blocks in 13:17 ATOI in his last 4 games.
- Dominik Kubalik, CHI, 34% – 0G, 1A, -4, – PIM, 0 PPP, 15 SOG, 2 hits, 1 block in 15:27 ATOI in his last 4 games.
Brandon Saad has been on a roll lately. He’s found himself on the 2nd line, beside Patrick Kane, and he could end up producing more on the 2nd PP unit. Mason Appleton isn’t really known for his NHL scoring, but he’s on the 2nd line beside Nikolaj Ehlers and Blake Wheeler, he could help take advantage of a Chicago team on the back end of a back-to-back. Dominik Kubalik has been a bright spot for the Hawks. Kubalik hasn’t produced as much of late, but on the 1st line with Jonathan Toews, and the PP1, he could take advantage of a Jets team that has had quite the rocky path this season.
What a hectic Sunday. Look on the bright side! I didn’t mention Cody Cec-
