Josh’s are stealing the show on the value train today and this Josh has five goals in his last four games and is second in the league with nine goals so far this season. Anderson’s price is still way too cheap so make sure you get exposure to him against a weak Oilers defense.

GOALIES

Carey Price

Price hasn’t quite been right so far this season but he will probably settle in soon. Tonight, it’s more about his opponent, the Sens who are ranked 28th in offense and the Habs are massive -220 favourites to win. The Sens won their most recent meeting in overtime so look for the Habs to get revenge this evening and Price is a great play in all formats.

Mike Smith

The Oilers are starting to get great goaltending play and that is very dangerous for the rest of the division. Smith is 4-0 with a stifling .940 save % to go along with a 1.83 GAA and the Canucks are ranked a below average 17th in offense. The Oilers should simply be too much for the Canucks this evening and Smith is also a great play in all formats. 

TOP TEAMS TO TARGET

Edmonton Oilers

It’s a no-brainer to put Edmonton and their surging third-ranked offense here, especially against the Canucks’ pitiful 29th ranked defense. 

All-world superstar Connor McDavid has an astonishing 37 points in only 20 games and the German power forward Leon Draisaitl has 30 points in 20 games. Tyson Barrie, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and Alex Chiasson fill out the dangerous top pp unit for the Oilers. 

Montreal Canadiens

The Habs are regressing on offense a bit as they slipped down to the #8 rank but they play against Ottawa and their league-worst defense again this evening. 

Tyler Toffoli has sniped 11 goals to go along with five assists through 17 games and point-man Jeff Petry has six goals and ten assists through 17 games. Nick Suzuki, Corey Perry, and Jonathan Drouin complete the top pp unit for the Habs.

VALUE PLAYS

Alex Chiasson

The theme is Oilers heavy today and with good reason as their offense is tearing the North division apart. Chiasson plays a bottom-six role at even-strength but plays on the lethal top pp unit with all of the studs. The veteran winger has a pp goal and an assist in his last two games and at minimum prices on both sites, he is a great value play in all formats. 

David Savard

We need value to fit in superstars like McDavid and this guy fits the bill as he has five shots in his last two games and a whopping 19 blocks in his last five. Savard is a great value play especially on dk where you get a three-point block bonus after three blocks.

GOALIES

Connor Hellebuyck

The reigning vezina trophy winner hasn’t been great so far this year but he still has a .911 save % and a 2.56 GAA with a 5-4 record. Tonight, it’s more about the opponent who happens to be the Ottawa Senators and their 29th-ranked offense. The Jets are massive -210 home favourites so look for Hellebuyck to shut the door and all things considered, he is a great play in all formats.

Andrei Vasilevskiy

The reigning Stanley Cup champ has been magnificent so far this season as he boasts a 8-2 record to go along with a solid .936 save % and a stifling 1.80 GAA. Tonight’s opponent, the Panthers are ranked 13th offensively but the Lightning own the best defense in the league so lock and load Vasil in all formats. 

TOP TEAMS TO TARGET

Winnipeg Jets

The Jets and their 9th-ranked offense have already defeated the Sens and their league-worst defense three times this season and have outscored them by a total of 14-7. 

Superstar Mark Scheifele is on a four-game point streak and already has five goals and ten assists this season, and Nikolaj Ehlers had two goals on six shots last game. Andrew Copp joins the two studs on the top line for the Jets.

Calgary Flames

The Flames have scored nine goals in their last two games and the Canucks own the league’s 30th-ranked defense and are on a five-game losing streak. 

Elias Lindholm had two goals and six shots in his last two games and Matthew Tkachuk has two assists in his last two. Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, and Rasmus Andersen complete the top PP unit for the Flames.

VALUE PLAYS

Jack Roslovic 

Since being traded to his home city from Winnipeg, the youngster has a point in the last five games that he has played, with two of them being multi-point efforts. Roslovic centers the top line and the #1 PP unit for the Jackets so lock him into every one of your lineups this evening in all formats. 

Josh Anderson 

Josh’s are stealing the show on the value train today and this Josh has five goals in his last four games and is second in the league with nine goals so far this season. Anderson’s price is still way too cheap so make sure you get exposure to him against a weak Oilers defense.
