Who I like

Held off the scoresheet in game one but still scoring 15.8 fantasy points, Auston Matthews ($9,200) exploded for a goal and three points in game two. Look for him to continue with another strong fantasy performance tonight.
Up to three points in two games, William Nylander ($5,200) has played well against the Habs. I’ve liked his game all year, and like him tonight.
Morgan Rielly ($5,300) has shown up these playoffs with points in each game. He’s also scoring lots of peripheral points averaging 15 FPPG so far.

Around the NHL

The flood gates opened for the Oilers last night and neither Connor McDavid ($9,000) or Leon Draisaitl ($8,000) disappointed. McDavid racked up 25 fantasy points and Draisaitl 39.6. I think the Oilers win one tonight and they’ll be a big part of it.
Alex Killorn ($3,900) could be a solid depth play today. He’s got seven points in four games against the Panthers as the Lightning look to close out their first-round series.
Teammate Ryan McDonaugh ($4,300) has been a machine in the playoffs averaging over 10 FPPG. He did post a sticker in game four with only 1.5 points, but I could see him rebounding here tonight.
