Only a two-game slate tonight! I know you have heard me say this before but we need to be perfect when deciding who to put in our lineups. You will see below I am very limited in who I think we should play tonight. Good Luck and Lets Cash!
Arizona Coyotes (9-13-5) Vs. Pittsburgh Penguins (18-7-3)
Goalie Matchup: Mike Smith, Confirmed (FD $7,400); Matt Murray, Likely (FD $7800)
So Pittsburgh is going to be awfully chalky tonight and for good reason. The Penguins are now 2nd in the NHL in goals scored per game at 3.39 per games and the Coyotes are 28th in the NHL, giving up 3.04 goals a game. I don’t want to steer clear of the Penguins as they may put up 6 tonight. Mike Smith has been playing very well in the net for the Coyotes and could come up with a gem against the Stanley Cup Champs. That being said, the Penguins have been playing Stanley Cup caliber hockey as of late. I think guys Like Crosby, Letang, and Malkin will be over 50-percent owned, especially on a two-game slate. I do feel the Penguins will win tonight and will score 3 or 4 goals tonight. I would lean towards the less chalky players from Pittsburgh and sprinkle in some Coyotes as this should be the highest total of the night.
Boston Bruins (15-12-2) Vs. Montreal Canadiens (19-6-3)
Goalie Matchup: Tukka Rask, Unconfirmed, (FD $7,700); Carey Price, Confirmed, (FD $8,800)
Coming into this Original Six contest at the Bell Center, the Canadiens are one of the hottest teams in the NHL. They have won three of their last four, scoring twenty goals in the three wins combined. Carey Price is the best goalie in the NHL by far and is a huge reason why they have 19 wins. Price has been in net in all but three of those wins. I see no reason not to have Price in your line up tonight. Yes, he will be the CHALK and his price is through the roof but I’m sure he will get the win tonight and give up only a goal at most. Montreal studs will be as chalky as Pittsburgh studs so to be a little different, sprinkle in some of the lower priced Canadiens into you lineups tonight.
