After a very exciting Thursday night of NHL action, we keep it rolling with a solid seven-game slate to kick off the weekend. The Dallas Stars and Boston Bruins are the biggest favorites tonight, while the Arizona Coyotes, Florida Panthers, New Jersey Devils and the Dallas Stars are playing on consecutive nights.
Make sure to check the RotoGrinders NHL Starting Goalies Page to confirm that the goalies listed below are starting prior to game time.
Chad Johnson, Buffalo Sabres, $7,500 – It is an ugly night to choose a safe cash game goalie. With that being said, Johnson should easily come away with the win tonight, and the price is right. The Arizona Coyotes have never been a team that travels well. Not only will the Desert Dogs be playing in back-to-back games, but this will also be their third road game in four nights. Look for a strong performance from Johnson this evening.
Other Goalies To Target (Cash Games) – John Gibson
Patrice Bergeron, Boston Bruins, $7,400 – Bergeron has collected points in ten of his last 11 games and he will now face a Calgary Flames team that has given up the most goals per game in the NHL. The opposing teams’ coaches tend to keep their top line away from Bergeron, which makes him very appealing in road games. The Bruins leader has multi-point upside in this matchup.
Corey Perry, Anaheim Ducks, $8,500 - Perry has really picked up his offensive game of late, racking up four goals and six points in his last five contests. The Ducks have always been able to get up for the San Jose Sharks, and I see a big game from Perry coming in this one.
Evander Kane, Buffalo Sabres, $6,200 - Kane has been on fire in his last two games, registering two goals, two assists and nine shots on net. The Arizona Coyotes are a terrible defensive team and the Sabres should light them up on home ice tonight. Look for Kane to produce his third consecutive multi-point game tonight.
Torey Krug, Boston Bruins, $6,200 – The Calgary Flames have been a defensive disaster so far this season and they own the league’s worst penalty kill. Krug has been a beast with the man advantage this year for the Bruins and I love his potential in this game.
