We had a great night last night, as all three top plays factored in scoring for their respective teams. Crosby and Ovechkin both found the back of the net and had assists, and Seguin had an assist as well. Today we have a small five-game slate and will try to find some winning plays. Time to maximize our profit.

Mr. Pucks’ Profound Three

I was asked if these are three players people should use. What I suggest is building around at least one of my three choices. Let us take a look at my top three.

Sidney Crosby (Pit) - Center - ($9200 FD / $8500 DK)

It is hard not to pick the best player in the NHL two nights in a row. He gets a home game against the Carolina Hurricanes. I can see him repeating what he did for us last night while adding a second goal. Ride him while he is hot and playing teams that don't contain him.

Nazem Kadri (Tor) - Center - ($6600 FD / $6000 DK)

Kadri is the one player that needed to turn it around this year. And he has done just that. He is on pace to score 26 goals and is averaging three-plus shots per game. I see him having a powerplay goal and four shots on net against the Panthers today.

Jonathan Marchessault (Fla) - Wing - ($5400 FD / $5300 DK)

Sticking with the same game, I am targeting Marchessault. An injury curbed his production just before the break, and he will come out strong to start the second half. I feel as if he will put one past Andersen tonight and grab an assist with four shots on net.

Mr. Pucks’ Sleeper play of the night

Dustin Brown (LA) - Wing - ($3400 FD / $4100 DK)

Brown is currently listed as the Kings top line winger alongside Pearson and Carter. I like his abilities to get to the front of the net and cause problems. Against a Canucks team, the sky is falling fast; Brown should have a dirty goal tonight.

Teams To Target

A few teams to target and build your lineups around.

***Due to time I'm just going to list the teams to target in your lineups.***

  • Toronto Maple Leafs
  • Florida Panthers
  • Pittsburgh Penguins
  • Montreal Canadiens
  • LA Kings


**As always check before puck drop to see starting goalies, as things change**

I will list a few goalies and if you want them in cash, GPP, or both.

  • Price - Cash
  • Murray - GPP/Cash
  • Budaj - GPP/Cash
