Surprise! I said yesterday that I wasn’t going to have an article today but instead of posting my streamers in the comments section, I will post a short, separate article with my top options. I said here that Leon Draisaitl was a must-add right now. While his ownership is increasing rapidly, he’s still only 36% owned on ESPN. He gets an amazing matchup against Philly and to make it even better, it’s at home with Philly on a back to back. He’s locked into the top line with Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and the top power play unit. Here’s a look at some other guys who are available in most leagues that can help you out tonight:
Benoit Pouliot (5.0%) – Same as Draisaitl except on the second line and second power play unit. Still, it’s a great spot against Philly.
Brett Connolly (0.7%) – He has four goals in the last 5 games and will be on the first line and the second power play unit in a game that I expect to be wide open against Dallas.
Chris Tierney (0.0%) – Digging deep on this one but Tierney has been playing on the Sharks’ lethal first power play unit. The Blue Jackets have been a mess defensively for most of the year and have the worst penalty kill in the league so far this season.
Brayden Schenn (27.9%) – I’m not the biggest fan of Schenn but the Oilers defense is still a mess and he’s back on the first power play unit in place of Michael Raffl.
Teemu Pulkkinen (5.5%) – I’m going back to the well with Pulkkinen. Tampa Bay is getting up goals at a fairly high rate and while he only played 10 minutes last game, I expect that to be an outlier with the power play time he normally gets.
Carl Soderberg (28.3) – Another guy who I’m not a big fan of but all indications are that he’s going to play with Gabriel Landeskog and Matt Duchene tonight. Calgary has been a trainwreck and while I don’t expect that to continue at this level, it’s still a good spot.
Anders Nilsson (0.3%) – This one is a little bold but the Flyers offense is struggling right now, they’re on a back to back and the Oilers are at home. He’s already been confirmed the starter and the Oilers are -135 tonight meaning there’s a good chance to get a win from Nilsson.
That should be enough options for everyone for tonight. Hopefully they pay off for you! I’ll be back tomorrow with a recap of Monday and Tuesday’s games. As always, post any questions and comments below and I’ll do my best to respond. Also, be sure to check out Marv’s article that is out today. Take care everyone!
