Following a packed Thursday night, the NHL has four games slated for Friday. Washington and Calgary will be facing each other after playing the nigh before, while the Islanders will also complete the second game of their back-to-back set. Columbus, Pittsburgh, San Jose and Detroit will play in the first match of their back-to-back situations.

Chris Kunitz LW (Penguins) - $6,100

 

Kunitz has lost his spot in Pittsburgh's top-six group. He has been skating on the third line with Nick Bonino and Patric Hornqvist. Kunitz hasn't picked up a point in his last four games and he has five shots during that span. It's been a tough start to the season for the 36-year-old winger, who has two goals in 15 matches.

 

Anders Lee LW (Islanders) - $5,900

 

Lee is facing a similar situation with the Islanders. He had a spot alongside John Tavares, but he's been on the third line as well lately. Lee has one goal and one assist in his last 11 games and he doesn't have a point in his past four outings.

 

Nick Foligno RW (Blue Jackets) - $6,500

 

Foligno hasn't scored a goal since Oct. 16 and it's his only marker in 16 games. He has two assists in his last 11 appearances and a minus-5 rating in his past two outings. None of that bodes well for a player who is facing a defensively stingy Pittsburgh team.

 

Dennis Wideman D (Flames) - $5,600

 

Wideman ended his six-game scoring drought Thursday night when he earned an assist, but he also had a minus-2 rating and one shot working against him. He has averaged just 0.9 fantasy points per game on FanDuel, which doesn't make him worth the price.

 

Petr Mrazek G (Red Wings) - $9,100

 

Mrazek is the third-most expensive goaltender of the night, but he won't be starting against San Jose. Jimmy Howard will get his first game action since Nov. 8 when he took a knee to the had from Dallas' Jason Spezza in a scramble around the net. Howard will only cost you $8,400.

 

T.J. Oshie RW (Capitals) - $6,000

 

Oshie ended a five-game scoring slump Thursday with his fifth goal of the season, but he also logged a season-low 14:08 of ice time. He is still playing with Alex Ovechkin, but has cooled off after a hot start. Going through cold stretches is nothing new for Oshie and I would seek more reliability for that price point. You can also choose one of the higher-priced right wingers, as there are some good bargains at left wing and center tonight.
