What a great night last night the scout army had. We had members winning money all over. Wiserman20 took down a GPP and we had profit galore. We now move on to Saturday, where the NHL is giving us a nice 10 game slate. There are a lot of options this evening and I will try and help you target some winning plays. With some teams already clinching playoff spots we will want to start watching ice time. Teams will start playing the stars a bit less and not risk injury. Lets take a look at the slate and lockup some cash.
Mr. Pucks Profound Three
Connor McDavid (EDM) - Center - ($9100 FD / $8400 DK)
McDavid is currently on a six game scoring streak and in his last game, against the Avs; he had two assists. He gets to play in front of his home team and I expect him to dispatch of the Avs lowly defense. Look for a line change as Eberle was moved back up to his line during the last game. I see two goals and an assist with five shots on net.
Alex Ovechkin (WSH) - Wing - ($8200 FD / $8300 DK)
Ovie will be a bit chalky tonight, with a home game against a bad Coyotes team. He has been firing the puck as Of late with 26 shots in his last three contests. I can see him continuing to fire the puck at the net and score us up to two goals. I will be using him in cash games for sure.
Artemi Panarin (CHI) - Wing - ($7000 FD / $6600 DK)
Panarin has been a constant for the Blackhawks this season. He has scored points in 11 if of his last 15 games, and he will continue to dazzle against the Panthers. I expect him to lead all scorers in the game with two goals and six shots on net.
Mr. Pucks Sleeper Play
Mark Letestu (EDM) - Wing - ($3600 FD / $3600 DK)
All of the sudden Letestu realized he is in the NHL and has started to score. On a night where people will target a lot of top end plays, Letestu could help your lineup excel and be low owned. Id only use him in GPP and if you're not using McDavid.
Teams To Target
Edmonton Oilers - I will be targeting the Oilers in both cash and GPP. My main focus will be Maroon-McDavid in cash and add Eberle for gpp. Sekera and Klefbom on defense.
Washington Capitals - Ovie will have a night and will be using his line the most tonight. You can consider Kuznetsov and his linemates as a safe pivot. Shattenkirk will be big on defense as will Carlson.
Chicago Blackhawks - I feel this is a game people will second guess due to the Panthers play of late. I will Panarin-Hartman in both cash and gpp. Kane is pricey to do a full line stack. Also consider the line of Panik-Toews as a safe play. Love Keith and Odyua on defense.
Also Consider: Bos 2, NYI 1, Tor 1&2, Mon 1
**As always check before puck drop to see if your goalie is starting**
