Fantasy Hockey: Scouting The NHL DFS - Sunday, March 5

Cash in on DraftKings and FanDuel with FSWA Hockey Writer of the Year Mr. Pucks!

Last night we had a mixed bag of good and bad. I'm a bit surprised by the Tampa/Buffalo game but not at all surprised of Winnipeg's dominance of Colorado. Tonight we get a nice slate with a matchup up of today's Star Sidney Crosby and Tomorrow's in Jack Eichel. Let's look at today's slate so we can have extra money tomorrow. Remember lock is at 5 pm on DK and 6 pm on FD. I will make a top pick for each site as their time is different.

Mr. Pucks Profound Three

Evgeni Malkin (Pit) -Wing- ( / $7700 DK Only /)

Malkin loves to win and loves it even more when people overlook him. Tonight the talk will be on Sid v Jack and Geno will shine. He has four goals and two assists in his last five games and will add to that tonight. I see two goals, and a power play assists with five shots on net.

Vladimir Tarasenko (Stl) -Wing- ($7800 FD / $7500 DK)

If anyone watched what happened to Colorado yesterday, then it's wise to attack them tonight and to start that attack with Vlad. Vlad has not scored a goal in his last four games, and he will want to end that. He will get two goals with ease and take six shots on net.

Nick Foligno (Cbj) -Wing- ( /$5500 DK only/)

I like the way Foligno has been playing this year and tonight he will run the offense for the Jackets. I see a goal and two assists with three shots on net.

Mr. Pucks Sleeper Play

Ivan Barbashev (Stl) - Center - ($3100 FD / $2800 DK)

Currently listed as the Blues fourth line center, Barbashev can easily overpower the Avs defense tonight. His ice time should increase these last few months of the season and will start tonight. I see a goal and four shots on goal.

Teams To Target

Pittsburgh Penguins [DK Only] - I'm going to more on the Malkin line then the Crosby line tonight. Love Strait and Hainsey on defense.

St. Louis Blues - I think the top line with Vlad will provide a ton of offense. You can use Barbashev line in an mme gpp for low ownership. Parayko and Pietrangelo on defense.

Carolina Hurricanes - I'm all in on Rask-Aho tonight. It's time they wake up and control a game. Love Faulk and Slavin on defense.

Also Consider - Ana 1 and 3, Min 1, SJ 1
