1 year agoBoston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask made 31 saves on 32 shots for a .969 save percentage in the 3-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Despite Toronto being one of the best offensive teams in the NHL, Rask has done a fantastic job shutting them down. This was his best game of the playoffs, and his second game over a .960 save percentage, with his first one coming in Game 1. Rask and the Bruins will look to eliminate the Maple Leafs on home ice in Game 5, and Rask will be a solid start in that game for DFS.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoColumbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky will man the pipes once again in Thursday's Game 4 home matchup against the Washington Capitals. The reigning Vezina winner has been stellar so far in this series, posting a .925 save percentage in three games. The Caps finally managed to steal one in overtime after the Jackets took two in Washington, but this will be their chance to take a commanding lead in the series. With only two games Thursday, Bob might be your best bet in DFS matchups.--Barry Miles - RotoBallerSource: AlisonL
1 year agoWashington Capitals goaltender Bradon Holtby will start Game 4's road matchup against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night. All three games in this series have gone to overtime, but the Caps finally managed to steal one in Tuesday's 3-2 win with Holtby in net. Despite having the worst regular season of his career, Holtby still enters this game with the best playoff save percentage among active goalies. He didn't have to work especially hard in the double-overtime win, stopping 33 shots over 4 1/2 periods but looked great while doing it.--Barry Miles - RotoBallerSource: Isabelle Khurshudyan
1 year agoWashington Capitals forward Chandler Stephenson will get a shot on the second line ahead of Thursday's matchup against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Stephenson managed six goals and 18 points in 67 games during his first full regular season in a fourth-line role and hasn't found the scoresheet yet in three postseason games. Head coach Barry Trotz has trusted the 23-year-old with an increase in ice time over the last two games and now will truly put his faith to the test as he slots up next to Nicklas Backstrom and TJ Oshie while Andre Burakovasky misses another game with an upper-body injury. Stephenson has shown zero value in fantasy hockey of any sort so far but will be a very cheap option in DFS leagues Thursday if you're feeling lucky.--Barry Miles - RotoBallerSource: NHL
1 year agoNashville Predators winger Ryan Hartman will have a hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety on Thursday. The hearing is a consequence of Hartman's ugly charging penalty taken in Game 4 in which the forward's shoulder struck Carl Soderberg in the head. Soderberg did not return to the game. Based on the results of other hearings around the league this spring, it would seem likely that Hartman will be suspended for Game 5. Hartman has one goal and six penalty minutes in four playoff games thus far.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource: NBCSports
1 year agoColorado Avalanche goaltender Andrew Hammond will get the nod in place of the injured Jonathan Bernier as the Avs look to avoid elimination on Friday night in Game 5. The Avalanche are now down to their third goaltending option, as starter Semyon Varlamov has also been out with an injury since late March. Hammond was perfect in relief in Game 4 on Wednesday, stopping all eight shots he faced. If the Avs get back into the series, they'll need Hammond to be on top of his game.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoOn Wednesday night, the San Jose Sharks secured their trip to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs with a 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks in Game 4. This game was much tighter than Game 3 and the only two players to find goals were Marcus Sorensen and Tomas Hertl. The real story here is Martin Jones, who made 30 saves on 31 shots, many of them being outstanding saves on Corey Perry, who had five good looks. Jones is definitely getting some well-deserved rest until Round 2 against the Vegas Golden Knights. The Sharks are gearing up for what should be a fantastic series. This will be a matchup of the goaltenders, as Jones only gave up four goals to the Anaheim Ducks and Marc-Andre Fleury only let in three during their series with the LA Kings. Look forward to another electric round of playoff hockey.--Anthony Vattimo - RotoBallerSource: DK Live
1 year agoNashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne, pulled in his team's Game 3 loss, bounced back with an impressive showing in an important 3-2 win in Denver on Wednesday night. Rinne ended up stopping 31 of the 33 shots he faced and came up with numerous crucial stops as the Avalanche pressed for the game-tying goal late in the third period. The Vezina candidate will look to build off his Game 4 performance as the Preds look to close out the series in Game 5 on Friday night.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoNashville Predators forward Colton Sissons has now picked up at least one point in each of his team's four playoffs games, registering another goal in a 3-2 win on Wednesday night. Sissons finished Game 4 with the aforementioned goal, a plus-one rating, four penalty minutes and three shots on goal in 15:18. The 24-year-old center is now up to three goals, two assists and eight shots on goal in four playoff games thus far. While his current 37.5 percent shooting percentage over the four-game span is due to regress, you should continue to ride the hot hand in daily fantasy leagues. Sissons and the Predators can close out the series with a win in Game 5 on Friday.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoColorado Avalanche goaltender Jonathan Bernier suffered a lower-body injury in Wednesday's contest with the Predators and did not return. Prior to his premature departure, Bernier had stopped 23 of 26 shots against. The news comes at a tough time for the Avalanche, as the team will travel back to Nashville for Game 5 in an attempt to avoid elimination. Andrew Hammond, who stopped all eight shots in relief, is likely to start Game 5 on Friday should Bernier be unable to play.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource: Mike Chambers
1 year agoSan Jose Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic is slowly starting to roll in the playoffs. After finishing the first two games against the Ducks without a single point, he picked up an assist in both of the next two. Vlasic provided the helper on Tomas Hertl's series-clinching goal on Wednesday. He's not known for his offensive production, but Vlasic did have a career year with 11 goals this season. He can provide you blocks on a nightly basis as well, so you could certainly do worse when picking defensemen for your DFS team. The Sharks face Vegas next, against whom Vlasic performed very well during the regular season, recording three points in four games.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoSan Jose Sharks right wing Marcus Sorensen is offering some very good value for money in DFS competitions in the playoffs, as he shares the team lead with three goals following the first-round sweep of the Ducks. He made it three goals in three games on Wednesday, potting the first of the game with 5:43 played, sending a rebound from a Brent Burns point shot into the net. Melker Karlsson also recorded an assist on the play. Sorensen averaged only 9:25 on the ice during the series, so he was super efficient. He only needed five shots to get the three goals as well.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoSan Jose Sharks forward Tomas Hertl provided the series-clinching goal Wednesday night in Game 4, as Peter DeBoer's team completed the sweep against Anaheim with a 2-1 win. Hertl scored his third postseason goal in the middle of the third period, just over a minute after the Ducks had tied it up. He had four points in the series, so the 24-year-old is up and running nicely. However, the Vegas Golden Knights will offer a much tougher challenge in the second round, so picking him blindly as a DFS play because he's on a nice scoring streak isn't a smart choice.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
1 year agoIt has not been a good playoff series for Philadelphia Flyers goalie Brian Elliott, apart from Game 2. He let in three goals on Wednesday and was replaced by Michal Neuvirth in Philly's 5-0 loss. Neuvirth let in two other goals, so right now it looks like no Flyers goalie is a good fantasy pick. Let's wait for 2018-19 fantasy drafts.--Michael Griffin - RotoBallerSource:
1 year agoTampa Bay Lightning forward Tyler Johnson will play on Wednesday night, according to coach Jon Cooper. Johnson did not practice Tuesday morning and was considered a game-time decision until now. Johnson rejoins Brayden Point and Ondrej Palat on Tampa Bay's second line, which was held scoreless in Game 3 for the first time this series. Johnson has been effective even when primarily matched up against New Jersey's top line, scoring three points in three games, and he will continue to be a good value option in daily formats.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: Bryan Burns
