Who I like

Have you heard of Auston Matthews ($9,200)? He’s pretty good. Despite only have points in one games, he’s still averaging 17.2 fantasy points per game.
I’m once again telling you to ride with William Nylander ($5,800). He’s got goals in each of the Leafs four games and is averaging 14.5 FPPG. Great value there.
I think Jack Campbell ($8,300) price might be a few hundred high, but I don’t mind this play tonight.

Around the NHL

The only other game is Carolina-Nashville tonight. Alex Nedeljkovic ($8,000) gets the start in my lineup tonight as I like them to close out their series.
Jordan Staal ($4,700) has been solid for the Canes in the playoffs with points in four of five games, including goals in two of the last three.
Mattias Ekholm ($4,100) could be a decent play tonight, too.
