Slate Summary

  • Game 1 of round 2 kicks off tonight with the first game (TB vs FLA) and followed by the second game (STL vs COL).
  • Mikko Rantanen had 5 helpers in his teams sweep against the Predators. Although he didn’t score, he had many chances to put one in the back of the net. He didn’t shoot a ton which is concerning but for 8.1k, he can get there without scoring. I’ll be locking him on both sites but prefer him on DK.
  • Sergachev is $100 more than what we are normally used to seeing but I still think he provides solid value and is my top salary relief play. This allows you to get different with your builds which can be tough on a 2 game slate.


  • Mikko Rantanen (COL) (W) – $8,100
  • Mikhail Sergachev (TB) (D) – $4,200


  • Sergei Bobrovsky (FLA) (G) – $7,600
  • Mikhail Sergachev (TB) (D) – $4,200


  • FLA
  • TB
