Tuesday night has three games on tap.
Patrick Kane (Chicago) - W - $8,600 (FanDuel), $7,500 (DraftKings), $33 (Yahoo)
Kane has a 12-game point streak going into Tuesday night’s action. He has eight goals and 13 assists during that span. He had one assist and eight shots in Saturday’s 2-1 shootout loss to Dallas. Kane also has six goals and 16 points in 13 home games this campaign.
David Krejci (Boston) - C - $6,700 (FanDuel), $5,100 (DraftKings), $19 (Yahoo)
Krejci has produced three goals and nine assists in the past 10 games. He scored two goals in Saturday’s win over Minnesota. Krejci is slated to play between Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak on Boston’s top line because Patrice Bergeron is out with a lower-body injury.
Kyle Palmieri (New Jersey) - W - $6,300 (FanDuel), $5,700 (DraftKings), $18 (Yahoo)
Palmieri has two goals and one assist in the past four games. He has enjoyed plenty of success against Minnesota, with two goals and seven helpers in his last 10 outings versus the Wild.
Bargain Bin: Roope Hintz (DAL) - C - $5,800 (FanDuel)/$4,500 (DraftKings)/$17 (Yahoo), Jason Zucker (MIN) - W - $5,700 (FanDuel)/$4,400 (DraftKings)/$18 (Yahoo), Nick Suzuki (MON) - $4,000 (FanDuel)/$4,200 (DraftKings)/$16 (Yahoo)

Krug notched one goal and two assists in his return to the lineup from an upper-body injury on Saturday. He has generated three goals and 16 points in 18 matches this campaign. Krug is also tied for second on the team with 12 power-play points. The Bruins own the league’s third-ranked power play, which could take advantage of Montreal’s penalty kill (27th in the league).
Bargain Bin: John Klingberg (DAL) - $5,100 (FanDuel)/$4,600 (DraftKings)/$19 (Yahoo), Ryan Suter (MIN) - $5,000 (FanDuel)/$3,700 (DraftKings)/$16 (Yahoo), Ben Chiarot (MON) - $4,200 (FanDuel)/$3,600 (DraftKings)/$15 (Yahoo)
