Hello hockey fans, we have a nine-game main slate today and I am here to share with you my favorite goalies, team stacks and value plays.
The Preds have been playing better lately and it starts with Saros, who is coming off of a 41 save shutout and has won five of his last six starts. The Wings were one of those teams he blanked and they own the league’s 29th-ranked offense so fire up Saros in all formats with confidence.
The Sharks have also been playing better recently and Jones has won four in a row while allowing only seven goals and earning a shutout during that span. The Ducks are ranked 30th in offense so it should be a fairly easy win for the veteran tender this evening. Fire up Jones in all formats.
Teams to Target
The Bruins scored only two goals against the Flyers and their second-worst defense last night so look for revenge this evening as they get to fire pucks at Carter Hart who has been downright awful this season.
Patrice Bergeron has heated up recently as he has two goals, two assists, and 20 shots in his last four games. Brad Marchand has also been hot lately with four goals and two assists in his last four. David Pastrnak, Nick Ritchie, and Mark Grzelcyk complete the top PP unit.
New York Rangers
The Penguins own a top 15 defense but they just allowed seven goals to the Bruins and the Rangers have been scoring goals from every direction lately.
The bread man Artemi Panarin has three goals, four assists, and eleven shots in his last three games and Adam Fox is on an incredible 10-game point streak. Mika Zibanejad, Ryan Strome, and Pavel Buchnevich complete the top PP unit.
One-off Value Plays
I love this guy’s name and he’s way too
cheap considering that he plays on the #2 line and the #2 PP unit for the Sharks. Rudolfs has two goals, two assists, and seven shots in his last three games so lock him and load him in all formats and spend up elsewhere.
The young point-man has a goal, three assists, four shots, and five blocks in his last two games and he is averaging 22 minutes of ice-time per game. His role has increased with Aaron Ekblad out of the lineup so fire him up in all formats.
