With six games in the NHL tonight, the best game on the playoff slate would be the Rangers heading to Toronto. There very well could be barn burners as well with Tampa Bay hosting Calgary, Nashville hosting Colorado and Arizona visiting the boiling hot Blackhawks. There are some nice possible DFS picks tonight, so let’s get to business.
Nikita Kucherov ($7000, Tampa Bay Lightning): After going pointless in four straight road games, Kucherov returned home and showed the Oilers what they’re all about with a goal and three assists. Now Calgary comes to town after surviving a 6-5 score fest in Nashville, and this has all the fixings of a score fest as well. Tampa is 5-2-3 in their last 10 and has won two straight and are beginning to right the ship after a very subpar first half of the year.
Torey Krug ($5200, Boston Bruins): On a five-game point streak heading into Wednesday night, Krug is on fire, and so is Boston for that matter. The Bruins are 4-0 under new bench boss Jack Cassidy and 7-3 in their last ten games. Facing Los Angeles Thursday night in the second game of a back-to-back, this former Michigan State Spartan gets the most minutes on the Bruins, plays on the top pair and anchors the B’s 12th ranked power play, which is hitting at an even 20%.
