It is Monday, the worst day of the week for most. The NHL is trying to ease the pain with a nice 8 game slate. First I would like to congratulate Kickman's Daughter as her girls hockey team just won the U16 IL Girls Hockey State Championship. Time for us to win our championship with tonight's action.

Mr. Pucks Profound Three
David Pastrnak (BOS) -Wing- ($7100 FD / $6800 DK)
The youngster has taken off since the second half of the season, and he don't look like he is slowing down. Currently he is on a eight game scoring streak where he had three goals and seven assist. Tonight he will continue that streak against Vancouver. Put him and his linemates in your cash or gpp lineups.
Nikita Kucherov (TB) -Wing- ($8200 FD / $7800 DK)
The Lightning find themselves fighting for a playoff spot and Nikita is a big reason why. He has 10 goals and eight assists in his last 10 games. Tonight I see him continuing his run against the Rangers. Consider him for a goal and an assist with five shots on goal.
Christian Dvorak (Az) -Center- ($3400 FD / $3500 DK)
In a game of two team heading in the same direction, down; the Coyotes take on the Avalanche. The young rookie has given some light in an otherwise dark season in Arizona. Tonight he will continue his hot play and score us a goal and an assist with three shots on net. Easily exceeding value.
Mr. Pucks Sleeper Play
P.A. Parenteau (NSH) - Wing - ($4300 FD / $3800 DK)
P.A. is one of my favorite sleeper plays. He is often overlooked and pays off. Currently slated as a second line wing, I see him easily hitting value tonight. Plug him in and watch him shine with a goal and an assist.
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.
Boston Bruins - All in on the line of Stafford-Krejci-Pastrnak. Consider the first line of Marchand-Bergeron-Backes. Krug an Carlo on defense.
Tampa Bay Lightning - Do not miss out on Kucherov and his line. Love Drouin as well. Hedman an Dotchin on defense.
Also Consider: AZ 1, Pit 1, NYI 1, Nash 2.
