It is Friday and the weekend is upon us. I am thrilled as I woke up this morning with a huge uptick in my bankroll and sick as all can be. So today I am going to put out a quick article that should help everyone cash out. Let's take some DayQuil and win some money tonight!
Mr. Pucks Profound Three
Eric Staal (Min) -Center- ($5600 FD / $5600 DK)
After being manhandled in Tampa last night, the Wild head into South Florida to try and get back on the winning side. I see Staal leading the charge and getting his guys to start scoring. He will get us a goal and assist on two more while taking five shots on net.
Jonathan Toews (Chi) -Center- ($7400 FD / $7100 DK)
Toews is elite, and against the Red Wings, he will look like a giant. With two goals and two assists in his last five, Toews is ramping up for a late season run. Look for him to score two tonight and lead his team to victory and closer to clinching a playoff berth.
Vladimir Tarasenko (Stl) -Wing- ($7900 FD / $7000 DK)
Vlad the Impaler, or that's what he has done to my lineups lately. The Ducks have not named a starter, but with Gibson doubtful and Bernier the starter last night, it looks like Enroth will be in net. Tarasenko is set to continue his MVP run and set your lineups up to succeed. I see him getting his 30th goal tonight and adding two assists to give him 30 on the year as well. I will have exposure to both cash and gpp lineups.
Mr. Pucks Sleeper Play
Tom Kuhnhackl (Pit) - Wing - ($3300 FD / $3100 DK)
Kuhnhackl is a fourth line role player with grit and some offensive power. Tonight he will help the Pens win another game in hockey country. He averages about nine minutes of ice time and makes each moment count. With his upside and his time on the Penalty Kill, he will score us a nice stack of points. I see a goal with two shots and two blocked shots tonight.
Teams To Target
Pittsburgh Penguins - Crosby and his line will be popular tonight. I will have a bit of use of his line as well as Malkin's line. Schultz and Cole on defense with a flier on Hainsey.
Minnesota Wild - I will be on Staal's line tonight as well as a bit of the second line with Koivu. Suter and Spurgeon on defense.
St. Louis Blues - I feel the Blues will be under-owned tonight. I will have the Tarasenko line in most of my lineups. A flier on the second line could pay in gpp. Parayko is the main defender I will use with a bit if Pietrangelo.
Chicago Blackhawks - I am all in on the Toews line tonight. Also like the Anisimov line with Panarian as well. Keith on defense with a play on Hjalmarsson.
Also Consider - CBJ 1, Det 3, Fla 3, Edm 1.
**As always check before puck drop to see starting goalies, as things change**
Allen - Cash/GPP
Kuemper - Cash/GPP
Murray - GPP
Glass - GPP only if Crawford doesn't start
