Tuesday night has nine games scheduled.
Artemi Panarin (New York Rangers) - W - $8,200 (FanDuel), $7,100 (DraftKings), $25 (Yahoo)
Panarin has four goals and eight assists during an eight-game point streak going into Tuesday’s match against Pittsburgh. He has posted a multi-point effort in each of the last three matches. Panarin has also had plenty of success versus the Penguins in the past with nine goals ad 15 points in 12 career games.
Evgeni Malkin (Pittsburgh) - C - $8,000 (FanDuel), $6,400 (DraftKings), $27 (Yahoo)
Malkin has one goal and four assists over a three-game point streak. With Sidney Crosby on the shelf due to a lower-body injury, Malkin’s line will be looking to step up for the Penguins. He has also been great against the Rangers during his career with 28 goals and 58 points in 57 matches. That includes four goals and five helpers over his last seven outings against them.
Patrice Bergeron (Boston) - C - $7,800 (FanDuel), $7,600 (DraftKings), $33 (Yahoo)
It’s getting more and more expensive if you want to stack Boston’s top line, but Bergeron has a good price and will give you some exposure to Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak. He had three goals and one assist in three contests against Florida last year. Bergeron’s six-game point streak came to an end on Sunday, but he stands a good chance of getting back on the scoresheet on Tuesday night.
Filip Forsberg (Nashville) - W - $7,600 (FanDuel), $7,600 (DraftKings), $25 (Yahoo)
Forsberg has registered three goals and two assists during a four-game point streak. He has been held off the scoresheet in just one of his 11 appearances this season, while compiling eight goals and 13 points. Forsberg has also amassed 47 shots.
Jonathan Huberdeau (Florida) - W - $7,300 (FanDuel), $6,700 (DraftKings), $25 (Yahoo)
Huberdeau has compiled four goals and four assists during a five-game point spree going into Tuesday night’s action. He has been held off the scoresheet just three times in 17 appearances this campaign. Additionally, Huberdeau racked up three goals and eight points in four meetings with Boston last year.
Bargain Bin: Eric Staal (MIN) - C - $6,400 (FanDuel)/$5,000 (DraftKings)/$18 (Yahoo), Nikolaj Ehlers (WPG) - W - $5,100 (FanDuel)/$6,400 (DraftKings)/$17 (Yahoo), Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (EDM) - C - $6,300 (FanDuel)/$5,100 (DraftKings)/$18 (Yahoo), Timo Meier (SJ) - W - $5,500 (FanDuel)/$5,100 (DraftKings)/$19 (Yahoo), Bryan Rust (PIT) - W - $4,600 (FanDuel)/$5,000 (DraftKings)/$17 (Yahoo)
Alex Pietrangelo (St. Louis) - $6,500 (FanDuel), $5,800 (DraftKings), $20 (Yahoo)
Pietrangelo has supplied two goals and eight assists in his last seven outings. He has been held off the scoresheet once during that span and will enter Tuesday night’s contest riding a three-game point streak (one goal, five assists). He also has four power-play points during that span.
Cale Makar (Colorado) - $5,000 (FanDuel), $5,200 (FanDuel), $19 (Yahoo)
Makar has plenty of bang for the buck upside for Tuesday night’s slate. The rookie blueliner has three goals and three helpers during a three-game point streak. Makar has four goals and 17 points, including eight on the power play, through the first 17 contests of the year.
Jordan Binnington (St. Louis) - $8,500 (FanDuel), $8,200 (DraftKings), $32 (Yahoo)
Binnington has won each of his last five starts and Arizona will be playing for the second time in two nights on the road against a rested Blues team. Binnington also possesses a 5-0-2 record with a 2.11 goals-against average and .930 save percentage on home ice this campaign.
Devan Dubnyk (Minnesota) - $7,300 (FanDuel), $7,600 (DraftKings), $27 (Yahoo)
Dubnyk is coming off a solid win over Arizona on Saturday when he stopped 32 of 35 shots. He also went 2-0-0 against Los Angeles last season with a 1.00 goals-against average and .962 save percentage. This is a battle of the two worst teams in the Western Conference, but the Wild should be given a slight edge and Dubnyk has plenty of bang for the buck potential.
Bargain Bin: Jonathan Bernier (DET) - $7,100 (FanDuel)/$6,800 (DraftKings)/$24 (Yahoo)
