What an amazing night of hockey last night. Giroux and Forsberg came through big for us, our targeted teams paid off, and Mason got us a shutout. Today is deadline day, and a lot of faces will be in new places. It will be a wild event and should create some new dfs darlings. We have only two games on the slate today, and each has some chalk. This will be a short look as it's a short slate.
Mr. Pucks Profound Three
Sidney Crosby (Pit) -Center- ($9000 FD / $8300 DK)
Crosby will be the highest owned center tonight. The Blackhawks have confirmed Darling as their starting netminder, and I don't think he can handle the Pens skill. I have Crosby with two goals and four shots tonight.
Nikita Kucherov (TB) -Wing- ($7700 FD / $7700 DK)
Kuch is the face of the Lightning and rightfully so. With three straight games with at least one goal (five total in his last three), he has proven he has skill. He gets to terrorize a Canes team that will be overmatched. He should be good for a goal and an assist with five shots. Artemi Panarin (Chi) -Wing- ($6700 FD / $6400 DK) The Breadman looks to toast the Pens and starter Marc Andre-Fleury, that's if he isn't traded before the game. Fleury that is. I see him getting two goals and an assist while he tries to prove he belongs in Crosby company.
Mr. Pucks’ Sleeper play of the night
Lee Stempniak (Cat) - Wing - ($3600 FD / $3400)
Don't look now but this is a rare year that Stempy isn't in trade rumors. If he makes it past the deadline, he will thank his team with a goal and an assist.
Teams To Target
Pittsburgh Penguins- This game will be chalk. Crosby line will be the line to attack. I also like Kessel to score. Love Cole and Hainsey tonight.
Chicago Blackhawks - The 2nd line will be my main line to target. The Toews line will be high owned also. Keith on defense.
Tampa Bay Lightning - Love the Kucherov line. Also, like the second line pairing of Point-Drouin. Hedman and Sustr on defense.
**As always check before puck drop to see starting goalies, as things change**
Budaj - Cash/GPP if he starts
Fleury - GPP
