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. Game three saw him rack up 14.6 points and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him continue to put up big numbers.

Back to the William Nylander ($5,600) well, too. He scored last night and has points in every game against Montreal this series.
I think Jack Campbell ($8,100) could be a good play tonight too.

Around the NHL

Not much else in the way of games tonight with Nashville and Carolina being the only ones on tap.
Look for Vincent Trocheck ($5,900) to try and keep up his strong pace in the playoffs and for the Canes to look to steal a game back. Alex Nedeljkovic ($8,300) has been standing on his head for the Canes, too.
