Wow, this guy has been awesome lately as he has won 10 of his last 11 games while allowing only 21 goals and earning two shutouts during that span. The Lightning are massive -215 road favorites and the Kings are ranked 29th in offense so all things considered, Vasilevskiy is an elite play in all formats this evening.
Let’s be clear here. The goalie position is ugly tonight after Vasilevskiy but in GPP formats, we will need a goalie who has upside and separates us from the rest of the field. Raanta was terrible in his last two starts but before that, he earned a shutout and the Ducks own the league’s 29th ranked home offense. Fire up Raanta in GPP formats in what should be a low scoring game.
TEAMS TO TARGET
The Capitals are ranked fourth in offense and the Predators are ranked ninth-worst in defense. Superstar Alex Ovechkin has a whopping eight goals on 12 shots in his last three games and his line-mate Tom Wilson has two goals, three assists and 15 shots in his last four. Nicklas Backstrom completes the top line for the Capitals and John Carlson is their top man on defense.
TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING
The Lightning own the league’s fifth-ranked offense and the Kings are ranked 12th-worst in defense. Superstar Steven Stamkos has three goals, three assists, and 16 shots in his last four games and fellow superstar Nikita Kucherov has seven goals, two assists, and 35 shots in his last seven. Brayden Point completes the top line for the Lightning and Victor Hedman is their top man on defense.
The young winger plays on the second line for the Canucks and has a goal and four assists in his last three games and 16 shots in his last five. Virtanen is way too cheap on both sites and is an elite value play in all formats.
The sophomore defenseman is turning into a solid player and he has an assist, eight shots, and six blocks in his last three games while averaging 23 minutes of ice-time. Bear is also very cheap on both sites so fire him up as a value play in all formats.
