Slate Summary

  • With the Colorado Avalanche being the first team to advance after their sweep, we are left with 3 games today. To lead my cash game build, I am locking in Panarin and Zibanejad who are both in the mid 7k range. This is a must win game for the Rangers and playing at home should give them a slight advantage. For my last core play, Backlund seems to always go under the radar as he plays behind a very talented top line. He is 4.1k projected to once again play on L2 as well as PP2 making him my favorite value play. As of now, I don’t have Markstrom as a core but I will be playing him today as there really isn’t anyone else I want between the pipes. The only other consideration would be going down for Sergei Bobrovsky who is $200 cheaper but I am all in on the Rangers and Flames in both formats.


  • Artemi Panarin (NYR) (W) – $7,500
  • Mika Zibanejad (NYR (C) – $7,600
  • Mikael Backlund (CGY) (C) – $4,100
