Slate Summary

  • 5 days left of the NHL regular season with 4 of them being a classic slate. As mentioned in my FD article, Auston Matthews has 58 goals with 2 games left. I am sure everyone on his team will try to get him that milestone which means he will shoot more than usual. I expect at least 5+ shots on net in each of his next 2 games. After Matthews, I am prioritizing the Wild tonight as they have the best matchup as well as their pricing compared to the Leafs. Kaprizov, Fiala, Eriksson Ek and Goligoski are all great options in cash games. As for my goalie in between the pipes, I don’t plan on rostering anyone but Shesterkin for 7.8k. It’s definitely a tough matchup but the Rangers are the slight favorites and the Canes are top 8 in shots on net this year. Let’s enjoy the giant 13 game slate and have the Crunchers crush it.


  • Auston Matthews (TOR) (C) – $9,200
  • Kirill Kaprizov (MIN) (LW) – $8,000
  • Kevin Fiala (MIN) (LW) – $5,900
  • Joel Eriksson Ek (MIN) (C) – $4,300
  • Alex Goligoski (MIN) (D) – $2,500
  • Igor Shesterkin (NYR) (G) – $7,800


  • Alex Goligoski (MIN) (D) – $2,500
  • Noah Gregor (SJ) (RW) – $2,500
  • Alexander Barabanov (SJ) (RW) – $2,500


  • Auston Matthews (TOR) (C) – $9,200
