It was a great night for the #ScoutArmy last night. We hit on our top picks for Staal and Tarasenko and cashed out everywhere. Tonight we have a full nine-game slate as we will try to repeat our good fortunes. I will help you build a winning lineup so you can go to work and brag to all your co-workers how much money you hit. Maybe there is something to this Dayquil that is helping. Lord knows it's not helping me get over this spring cold.
Mr. Pucks Profound Three
John Tavares (NYI) -Center- ($8200 FD / $7100 DK)
Tavares and his Islanders are trying to hang in the playoff race and have a tough test tonight against the Blues. He has been scoring as of late and needed to do more of it tonight. With him on a three-game scoring streak, I see him extending it tonight with a goal and an assist while taking six shots on net.
Mike Hoffman (Ott) -Wing- ($6700 FD / $6100 DK)
The Sens will be a sexy pick tonight playing an Avs team that won't match them. With a goal and four assists in his last five, I feel Hoff will have a career game tonight. I see two goals and two assists with four shots on goal.
Vladimir Tarasenko (Stl) -Wing- ($7900 FD / $7000 DK)
I am sticking with Vlad tonight. Tarasenko is set to continue his MVP run and set your lineups up to succeed. I see him getting his 31st goal tonight and adding an assist to give him 30 on the year as well. He will also treat us to five shots on net and a blocked shot. I will have exposure to both cash and gpp lineups.
Mr. Pucks Sleeper Play
Devante Smith-Pelly (Nj) - Wing - ($3200 FD / $3000 DK)
As I go through my lineup construction, Smith-Pelly kept sticking out to me. He is a role player for the Devils but is moving to the Second line tonight [though keep an eye as that may change after morning skates]. This makes me feel the coach has a feeling. I'm gonna run with it and hope for a goal tonight from the bruiser.
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.
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.
Ottawa Senators - Love the Hoffman line tonight and will be targeting in most my lineups. Don't overlook the top line with Stone. Karlsson and Phaneuf on defense.
Tampa Bay Lightning - Battle of Florida tonight. Do not miss out on Kucherov and his line. Love Drouin as well. Hedman and Dotchin on defense.
Also Consider - NYI 1, Was 1, Fla 3, CBJ and Buf 1.
