Slate Summary

Although the NBA regular season is coming to an end this weekend, we still have plenty of hockey left. Going straight into today, the player I am locking in right away is captain Patrice Bergeron. He has averaged close to 5 shots per game in his last 8 games and even if he hasn’t scored a ton, he has picked up a lot of helpers. Pairing him up with these cheap value plays from the Flyers who are up against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Konecny, Tippett and Farabee are all underpriced in this matchup and will provided you with the salary relief you need to play McDavid or Matthews. Matthews has been been on fire just coming off a hat-trick against a very good team in TB. He is up against another elite team in the Florida Panthers but we all saw that he is matchup proof. That being said, I would rather play McDavid who is cheaper, in a better spot and overall a better player. Since it’s a big sized slate, there are many ways of building your cash game lineup. As for goalies, I am considering Forsberg and Andersen with my lean slightly towards Freddy.
