We have a huge slate today and putting a winning lineup together will be fun. We will need to have a nice mix and target the right teams. I am going to make this short and sweet as I have an engagement at my daughter's college today. She is in culinary school and its some taste test thing. Lord save me. Here we go.

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.

Kyle Okposo (Buf) - Wing - ($6500 FD / $5100 DK)

If you are playing on Draftkings, you are getting one hell of a bargain. Okposo plays alongside Eichel and should have no issues dispatching the Nashville defense. I expect a goal and an assist tonight with four shots on net.

Jonathan Toews (Chi) -Center- ($7300 FD /$6000 DK)

I think there is something broke in FanDuels pricing. Toews is a top center on a Blackhawks team finding its rhythm. He had a goal and three assists against Vancouver in his last game and is starting to heat up. Going against the Tampa Bay Lightning, Toews should do rather well. A goal and two assists are well within his reach.

Sidney Crosby (Pit) -Center- ($9200 FD / $8300 DK)

Sid and his Pens take on a Blues team that don't mind giving up goals. He has two goals and seven assists in his last five, with one if the goals are coming on the power play. I see the Pens having many power play opportunities and Sid scoring another one. Fire him up as I think he shines tonight.

Mr. Pucks’ Sleeper play of the night

Artturi Lehkonen (Mtl) - Wing - ($4200 FD / $3800 DK)

Lehkonen has been an under the radar player lately, and that will bode well for us. With a goal in his last game, he will start to feel the spark. He is a second line winger priced right. He will get a goal tonight and be less than 2% owned.

Teams To Target

A few teams to target and build your lineups around.

Pittsburgh Penguins - Top three lines will dominate this game. Like Schultz and Cole on defense.

Buffalo Sabres - The top line should be your focal if you target this team. Third line if you want to be sneaky. Ristolainen on defense.

Chicago Blackhawks - Top two lines in play. 3rd line for sneaky GPP play. Keith on defense

Minnesota Wild - Staal and Koivu lines are great options tonight if you want to avoid Philly/NYI. Dumba, Suter, and Spurgeon on defense.

Other teams to consider: Washington, Detroit, Boston, San Jose, Columbus.


**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.

Murray - Cash/GPP

Dubnyk - Cash/GPP

Price - Cash/GPP

Bobrovsky - Cash/GPP

Crawford - Cash/GPP

Lehner/Nilsson - GPP only
