'Twas a pretty quiet Thursday of NHL action, with just three games, but the fans got their money's worth, with two of them going to overtime and all three home teams coming away with wins.
On a night without a whole ton of major fantasy takeaways, the biggest one for fantasy purposes is probably Carter Hutton's second straight rough outing, as he blew a 3-0 lead, gave up four goals in regulation and lost to the Coyotes in the shootout. That's nine goals and two losses for Hutton in the last two games, which is probably bad enough that 22-year-old Magnus Hellberg will see his first NHL start sometime soon. If Hellberg plays well – and there's certainly a strong argument that he's already a better goalie than Hutton – don't be surprised to see him grab a bigger share of the Preds' tending job very quickly while Pekka Rinne remains out.
