5/23:Minnesota Wild forward Charlie Coyle successfully underwent surgery last Friday to repair torn tendons in both of his wrists. Coyle only ended up getting 37 points in 66 games this season, and a large part of it had to do with the fact that Coyle was playing with these injuries during the regular season. There currently is no timetable right now, however, Coyle should be good to go for the season opener. He will hold late-round value in deeper formats.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource: Michael Russo on Twitter
5/23:Washington Capitals center Evgeny Kuznetsov didn’t find the back of the net in Game 6, but he did find his way on the score sheet, notching a power play assist on the opening goal of the game. Kuznetsov saw his four-game goal streak come to an end, but extended his point streak, now to nine games. With at least a point in every game this series, Kuznetsov has shown to be a DFS beast, worthy of a start at all times. Kuznetsov has 11 goals and 12 assists this postseason, leading all players, and impressively has 14 5-on-5 points.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
5/23:Washington Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom returned from a hand injury in Game 4 of the Conference Finals. In his first two games, the missed time appeared to have taken a toll on the Swede, as he posted no points and had a minus-one rating in each game. In Game 6 on Monday, he started to look back to form. Back in a top-six role, Backstrom assisted both of linemate T.J. Oshie’s goals, the first of which came with the man advantage. This performance was very reassuring for prospective Backstrom owners, as he’s widely known as one of the best passers in the game. This was Backstrom’s strongest showing since his return, and he’ll need a repeat performance to be worth a DFS start for Game 7. This, however, is not a sure thing.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
5/23:Washington Capitals winger T.J. Oshie found an opportune time to pot his first goals of the series on a first-period power play in Game 6 and an empty-netter in the final minute. Oshie assumed his usual power-play position in the high slot when Nicklas Backstrom fed a pass, changing the angle on Tampa Bay goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy enough for Oshie to fire the one-timer past. The 31-year-old now has seven points through six games and is riding a four-game point streak. The winger has been posting some big minutes, eclipsing 20:00 of time on ice in three games this series. This has been Oshie’s most productive series of the postseason, and he is worth a start for Game 7.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
5/23:Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby was perfect in Game 6 when his team needed him most. He stopped all 24 shots faced to earn his first shutout of the postseason. Admittedly, Holtby got some help from his teammates. On Tampa Bay’s two power plays, they were only able to produce one shot on goal and the Caps outblocked the Bolts 20 to 13 with their season on the line. This was a much-needed bounce-back game for the Saskatchewan native, as he had allowed three or more goals in Washington’s three consecutive losses. Holtby and the Caps hold an impressive 7-2 road record this postseason, something to keep in mind as Game 7 returns to Amalie Arena.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
5/21:On Sunday afternoon, the Vegas Golden Knights defeated the Winnipeg Jets 2-1 to secure their spot in the Stanley Cup finals. Vegas took this series with ease, winning it quickly in five games. It's clear that there are no signs of them slowing down, as they have lost only three games this postseason. Alex Tuch netted the first goal on a turnover right in front of Connor Hellybuyck. Winnipeg native Ryan Reaves scored the go-ahead and his first postseason goal that won them Game 5. Goalie Marc Andre-Fleury is clearly the toughest goalie to get the puck past, making 31 saves on 32 shots, improving to a .947 save percentage with a 1.68 goals-against average this postseason. The Golden Knights will face the Washington Capitals or the Tampa Bay Lightning in the finals.--Anthony Vattimo - RotoBallerSource: DK Live
5/20:Vegas Golden Knights forward Jonathan Marchessault saw his amazing run of points end on Sunday against the Winnipeg Jets, but that didn't stop Gerard Gallant's team from booking their place in the Stanley Cup Final. Marchessault had a team-high six shots on goal, but it was Alex Tuch and Ryan Reaves who did the damage in a 2-1 win. It ended a six-game point streak for Marchessault, which featured 10 points in total. It's only the fifth time this year that he was kept pointless in the playoffs. Marchessault yet to go two straight games without a point, so we can expect a strong start to the finals from him.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
5/20:Vegas Golden Knights right wing Alex Tuch will start the Stanley Cup Final with some good momentum after scoring his second goal in the last three games on Sunday against the Jets in a 2-1 result that sealed the series win for the Knights. Tuch opened the scoring with his sixth postseason goal with just over five minutes played in the opening frame. Ryan Carpenter picked up an assist on the play for his fifth playoff point of the year. Tuch had four shots in total, playing 13:20 with 1:32 coming on the power play. He's been solid after being promoted to the second line following some health issues suffered by David Perron.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
5/20:Vegas Golden Knights right wing Ryan Reaves ended a lengthy postseason drought at just the perfect time. The 31-year-old enforcer scored only his second career playoff goal in Game 5 against his hometown Jets on Sunday to win it for Vegas 2-1 and send the team into the Stanley Cup Final. Reaves tipped in a shot in the second period to pick up his first point in the last 24 postseason games. It was only his sixth playoff game this season. A midseason three-team trade between Vegas, Pittsburgh and Ottawa that sent Reaves to Sin City looks like another masterstroke by the Knights' general manager George McPhee.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
5/20:Tampa Bay forward Cedric Paquette scored on the first shot of the game in Saturday’s win over the Washington Capitals. Tasked with shutting down Washington’s top line, Paquette and Tampa’s fourth line started Game 5. Paquette’s line got the better of the Capitals twice in the game, scoring in the opening minute of both the first and second periods. Paquette’s DFS value is almost non-existent; he has just one goal and one assist to this point in the postseason. He fulfills his role for Tampa Bay to a tee, and his value to the team is usually intangible, which doesn’t translate to DFS success.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
5/20:With the goalie pulled, Washington Capitals defenseman John Carlson found Alex Ovechkin for a patented one-timer goal to bring the Caps within one in Game 5. Unfortunately, that is as close as they would get, losing the game 3-2 and trailing in the series for the first time. Carlson is enjoying the most productive postseason of his career, now with 15 points (three goals, 12 assists). He bested his previous career-high 12 points set in the 2016 playoffs, and he sits second in the league in defensive scoring, trailing Winnipeg’s Dustin Byfuglien by just a point. Carlson has four assists through five games this series and should be a reliable DFS option as Washington faces elimination in Game 6.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
5/20:Tampa Bay Lightning winger Ondrej Palat extended a point streak to three games, scoring midway through the first period in Saturday’s Game 5. Palat received a pass from Nikita Kucherov in the slot and snapped a shot past Braden Holtby for his sixth of the postseason. The 27-year-old has been enjoying his new line with Kucherov and Steven Stamkos. This three-game streak is his longest of these playoffs, and he has factored into Tampa’s scoring in all but one game this series. Palat has four points in each round thus far, and has shown he can rack them up in bunches. He could be a cheaper DFS option than his big-ticket linemates.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
5/20:Tampa Bay Lightning forward Ryan Callahan assisted Cedric Paquette’s goal in the opening minute of Game 5, and later added the eventual game winner. Game 5 wasn’t the first time coach Jon Cooper has tapped his fourth line for the opening faceoff, tasking them with shutting down Washington’s top unit. This was easily Callahan’s best game of the postseason; he had just one goal prior to Saturday’s game. Scoring right off the opening whistle set the tone for the game and allowed Tampa to drive the pace of play, rather than having to chase it. Callahan really doesn’t hold much DFS value, as he’s expected to play a checking role more than an offensive one.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
5/20:Tampa Bay Lightning goalie earned his third straight victory and continued his strong play as this Conference Final progresses. Vasilevskiy had a very shaky start to the series, but has really turned it on during Tampa’s winning streak. Similarly, Tampa Bay were routed by Boston in Game 1 of round two, but rebounded well and won four straight to eliminate the Bs in five games. Tampa is looking strong in this series, and has already won both games in Washington. Vasilevskiy has stopped 100 of 106 shots in the last three games, and should be started in DFS formats for Game 6.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
5/20:Washington Capitals center scored his team’s first goal in the 3-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday. Although it was in a losing effort, Kuznetsov set a new Capitals franchise record for points in a single postseason with his 22nd point of these playoffs. He’s broken the previous record of 21 points, set by his linemate Alex Ovechkin. Game 5 was the fourth consecutive contest in which Kuznetsov has scored, and he has points in all five game this series. With Washington on the brink of elimination, Kuznetsov and the Capitals need a win to provide any more opportunity to increase his scoring lead. Owners should feel comfortable starting Kuznetsov in DFS formats, he’s been producing with incredible consistency.--Kevin Acorn - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
