Slate Summary

  • With 6 NHL teams remaining after the Lightning swept the Panthers, we will only have a few more 2 game slates. Our projections have been crushing all playoffs and will look to finish strong.
  • My favorite goalie is Shesterkin today on both sites. He is a lock for me on FD and a near lock on DK. Shesterkin is coming off a monster game saving 43 on 44 shots. After a slow start to the series, the Rangers looked great at home and will play again at MSG for game 4.
  • Day in and day out, Connor shows the world why he is the best player in the league. There’s no reason to fade him in cash games on a small 2 game slate but you can get different with your GPP builds.
  • Tyson Barrie provides the best value on the slate due to his price tag. He has yet to register a point in this series but is getting around 20 minutes of ice time. The most important thing here is that he is on the lethal power play which has McDavid and Draisaitl.
  • RNH is my last core play and definitely isn’t a must play like the 3 above but for the minutes he has been getting this playoffs as well as being on the top PP unit, it’s a really good spot to roster the former number 1 overall pick. He is a high skill player who can pick up some helpers which is more beneficial on FD.
