The Vancouver Canucks are the biggest favorites on the board, and we should see goals from all four teams playing in Boston and Colorado this evening. The Buffalo Sabres are the only team 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.


Ryan Miller, Vancouver Canucks, $7,400 – Miller has been very inconsistent this season, but he is in a great spot to pick up the win tonight. The Buffalo Sabres are playing in consecutive road games and I expect the Canucks to outplay the Sabres in this game. Miller is moderately priced and your safest option in goal for cash games.



Other Goalies To Target (Cash Games) – Tuukka Rask, Pekka Rinne


Other Goalies To Target (Tournaments) – Semyon Varlamov, Linus Ullmark






David Krejci, Boston Bruins, $5,900 – With 26 points in 25 games thus far, Krejci has been a very consistent cash game option. Patrice Bergeron will handle the Nashville Predators’ top line tonight and that will allow Krejci to roam free against the Predators’ weaker lines.  Nashville has played some ugly hockey recently and I expect Krejci and company to take advantage of that on home ice.



Other Centers to Target (Cash Games) – Patrice Bergeron, Mikael Granlund, Nathan MacKinnon, Henrik Sedin


Other Centers to Target (Tournaments) – Mike Ribeiro, Mikko Koivu, Jack Eichel






Zach Parise, Minnesota Wild, $8,800 – Parise has yet to have that big game since coming back from injury. However, I think it could very well happen tonight at the Pepsi Center. The Colorado Avalanche remain the NHL’s worst possession team, which has resulted in allowing the league’s fourth most goals against this season. Look for Parise to snipe at least one goal in this one.



Daniel Sedin, Vancouver Canucks, $8,400 - The Buffalo Sabres are playing their second game in as many nights and they are definitely a team I want to pick on this evening. Daniel Sedin is off to a terrific start this season (12 G, 29 PTS, 102 SOG in 28 GP), and I see a multi-point game in his future.



Other Wingers to Target (Cash Games) – James Neal, Gabriel Landeskog, Filip Forsberg, Loui Eriksson, Jason Pominville, Matt Duchene


Other Wingers to Target (Tournaments) – Evander Kane, Brad Marchand, Jason Zucker, Matt Beleskey, Frank Vatrano, Viktor Arvidson, Sam Reinhart, Jannik Hansen






Torey Krug, Boston Bruins, $6,300 - Surprisingly, the Nashville Predators have struggled in their own end this year, which has led to a 28th-ranked penalty kill. Krug has been a beast with the man advantage and we can expect more of the same tonight.



Other Defensemen to Target (Cash Games) – Shea Weber, Ryan Suter, Tyson Barrie


Other Defensemen to Target (Tournaments) – Rasmus Ristolainen, Yannick Weber, Colin Miller, Matthew Dumba, Jared Spurgeon
