Slate Summary

  • If you missed the first game between the Flames and Oilers, I highly recommend you tuning into today or at least watching one game of the Battle of Alberta. It did not disappoint at all as there were a total of 15 goals. I will have most of my players from this game and will grab a goalie from the CAR/NYR game.
  • McDavid is priced at 9.2 which is the highest he has been during this playoff run. That won’t stop me from playing the best player as he has been an absolute heater these last 4 games. The Flames will most likely be missing their top defensive defensemen in Tanev once again which gives McDavid a bigger boost. Even if Tanev is in, no one can really slow down McDavid but his own team.
  • If Tanev is out, I really like Michael Stone here for his cheap price tag. Stone had a huge series against the Dallas Stars and it looks like the coach trusts him to be on the ice whenever McDavid is on. However, if Tanev is ruled in, I will likely take Stone out of my core play which I will update in our Discord channel.
  • What a game from Tkachuk who ended up with a hatty on an empty net goal. A goal is a goal and he got to do it in front his brother, Brady. Matthew has had B2B monster games and is my favorite mid-tier option. He plays on L1/PP1 and will look to get under McDavid’s skin whenever he gets the chance.


  • Connor McDavid (EDM) (C) (9.2)
  • Michael Stone (CGY) (D) (2.9)
  • Matthew Tkachuk (CGY) (RW) (6.1)
