Slate Summary

  • We are going into game 3 of the first round NHL playoffs. We have enough of a sample size to figure out what route is the most optimal in cash and GPP contests. Starting off for cash games, Connor McDavid at 10k leads it off for me. In the first two games against the Kings, McDavid has posted 25.3 and 21.2 fps. With a dominant performance by the Oilers in game 2, their captain only played 16 mins and should be well rested tonight. I’m running it back on the other team with Kopitar and Iafallo. Both are great options and this game should be closer with a lot of goals produced. Colton Parayko is an excellent low ownership play who should get plenty of ice time against the Wild. In net for me, I am locking in Swayman at 7.3k. He is too cheap with the possibility of a win bonus, where they are expected with a 56% win rate. These are 5 strong considerations for cash game and even GPP contests with LA and EDM as my favorite team to stack.


  • Connor McDavid (EDM) (C) – $10,000
  • Jeremy Swayman (BOS) (G) – $7,300
