After a very exciting six-game slate last night, the NHL keeps the action rolling with eight more contests scheduled this evening. The Nashville Predators, Dallas Stars and Los Angeles Kings are the biggest favorites on the board and the St. Louis Blues and Anaheim Ducks are both playing in back-to-back games.

 

 

 

GOALTENDERS

 

Make sure to check the RotoGrinders NHL Starting Goalies Page to confirm that the goalies listed below are starting prior to game time.

 

Pekka Rinne, Nashville Predators, $9,100 - It is a tough night to trust goaltending in cash games, but Rinne is my guy. In nine home starts, Rinne has been spectacular (6-1-2, 1.96 GAA, .924 SV%), and he will face a struggling Anaheim Ducks team playing on consecutive nights. The Nashville Predators are the biggest favorites on the slate and they have been scoring goals like crazy recently. Look for Rinne to make 25-plus saves, get a win and allow two goals at the most.

 

 

Other Goalies To Target (Cash Games) – Marc-Andre Fleury, Antti Niemi

 

Other Goalies To Target (Tournaments) – Sergei Bobrovsky, Linus Ullmark, Martin Jones, Reto Berra

 

 

 

CENTERS

 

Tyler Seguin, Dallas Stars, $8,800 - The Buffalo Sabres are a much improved team and I am not necessarily looking to target against them on home ice. However, they don’t have anyone that can stop Tyler Seguin. Until his price skyrockets, Seguin will remain a staple in my cash game lineups.

 

 

Other Centers to Target (Cash Games) – David Krejci, Sidney Crosby, Nathan MacKinnon, Jeff Carter

 

Other Centers to Target (Tournaments) – Joe Thornton, Jack Eichel, Ryan Johansen, Adam Henrique, Sean Monahan

 

 

 

WINGERS

 

Matt Duchene, Colorado Avalanche, $8,200 - Duchene has been on fire recently, racking up four goals and eight points in his last three games. Playing alongside Nathan MacKinnon has done wonders for Duchene, and I can’t see the Toronto Maple Leafs slowing him down in this one.

 

 

Joe Pavelski, San Jose Sharks, $8,300 - With all the struggles the Boston Bruins are having on the back end this season, you have to like the Sharks to score tonight.  Not to mention, the Bruins have the league’s worst penalty kill. Pavelski has been San Jose’s most consistent scorer thus far (9 G, 15 PTS, 59 SOG in 17 GP), and I expect him to hit the scoresheet at both even strength and on the power play this evening.

 

 

James Neal, Nashville Predators, $6,400 - The Anaheim Ducks are a shell of their former self. The Ducks have struggled in all aspects of their game at various points this season, resulting in a 6-8-4 record. On the flip side, the Nashville Predators have been dynamite on home ice (6-1-2), seemingly scoring at will. Neal is riding a three-game point streak and has multi-point upside against a Ducks team playing in consecutive road games.

 

 

Other Wingers to Target (Cash Games) – Jamie Benn, Vladimir Tarasenko, Loui Eriksson, Phil Kessel

 

Other Wingers to Target (Tournaments) – Thomas Vanek, Pascal Dupuis, David Perron, Michael Cammalleri, Johnny Gaudreau

 

 

 

DEFENSEMEN

 

John Klingberg, Dallas Stars, $6,100 - The penalty kill has been an issue all season long for the Sabres. Buffalo is ranked 27th when shorthanded, and the Dallas Stars have the NHL’s second-best power play. Klingberg has already registered 10 power-play points this year, and I expect him to add to that this evening.

 


Other Defensemen to Target (Cash Games) – Torey Krug, Shea Weber, Kris Letang, Kevin Shattenkirk, Drew Doughty, Tyson Barrie

 

Other Defensemen to Target (Tournaments) – Brent Burns, Colton Parayko, Rasmus Ristolainen, Jake Muzzin, Damon Severson, Shayne Gostisbehere
