We’ve got a jam packed Tuesday night as 24 teams play. Look for a high scoring affair between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Dallas Stars, as the Pens sit in first in the NHL with 3.48 goals per game and Dallas is second last in the league in goals against per game. Also be prepared for an exciting matchup between the Calgary Flames and LA Kings as both teams are in the middle of Western Conference wild card race. Metropolitan division rivals Rangers and Capitals face off at Madison Square Garden, as Pittsburgh, Columbus, and the Rangers are all within seven points of the league leaders.
C – Sean Monahan (CGY) – $5,600
The Flames’ star center has been on a hot streak of late with five points in the last four games. Calgary is also riding a four game win streak, and will be looking to continue that trend against Pacific division rivals, the LA Kings.
C – Ryan Spooner (BOS) – $3,800
Like the Bruins, Spooner is on a hot streak with nine points in nine games. They are facing weak competition against the Arizona Coyotes, who have recently traded depth center Martin Hanzal.
W – Wayne Simmonds (PHI) – $6,300
The Philadelphia power forward is on a torrid goal scoring pace this season, look for that continue against the lowly Avalanche.
W – Jake Guentzel (PIT) – $4,600
As Pittsburgh faces off against the defensively weak Stars, many Pittsburgh players are carrying a high price tag tonight. Guentzel is a great, low cost option, as you can bet he will piggyback on line mate Crosby
W – Mitchell Marner (TOR) – $5,800
Mitch Marner returns from an upper body injury to take on the San Jose Sharks. The Leafs are in the middle of the playoff race, so expect it to be an intense game where Marner can shine.
D – PK Subban (NSH) – $5,300
Nashville allstar Subban is on a deep point streak with twelve points in his last nine games and points in seven of those nine. Nashville takes on a weaker Sabres team, Subban will take advantage.
D – Torey Krug (BOS) – $5,400
Like Spooner, Krug should be able to cash in as the Bruins take on the Arizona Coyotes.
G – Braden Holtby (WAS) – $7,600
Holtby has only lost one game in his last thirteen starts, and should succeed facing a tough Rangers team. New York is coming off a 5-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets and I expect that losing streak to continue.
Util – Leon Draisaitl (EDM) – $5,600
The Oilers’ star has taken off during the second half of the season. Draisaitl put up two points in his last game against the St. Louis Blues, and that should continue against a Blues goaltending duo that ranks 28th in the NHL in save percentage.
