Finally we have NHL games again after a few days off for the Christmas holiday. And, there are actually more than two games this Wednesday evening. Five games are on the slate tonight, including my young, favorite Carolina Hurricanes visiting the defending champs up in the Steel City. There is also a marquee matchup with the Flyers of Philadelphia headed to St. Louis for a primetime tilt, so let’s get to the DFS action.
Sidney Crosby ($8500, Pittsburgh Penguins): One of the more expensive options tonight is also one of the hottest players on the planet. With 12 goals and 22 points in the Pens last 15 games, Sid the Adult is an absolute must own tonight against one of the hotter teams in Carolina, who are 6-2-2 over their last ten games. Pittsburgh is 7-1-2 in their last ten, and 15-2-2 at home, so if you can afford it, stack the Pens top forwards.
Jeff Petry ($4800, Montreal Canadiens): The former Spartan has been scorching hot of late, and I hope this four-day vacation hasn’t taken the fire off his sticks and shots. Petry is a very cost- efficient player tonight, and facing a Tampa Bay team that is trying to find the magic of the last two seasons, he should find success.
