Who I like

Jack Campbell ($7,900) forever. He’s 11-0 on the season and should probably lose a game at some point, but until he does he’s worth the start.
I like John Tavares ($6,500) here. He’s scored six points in five games against Montreal this year averaging 4.2 FPPG more against them than other teams.
Josh Anderson ($4,800) has been solid for Montreal against Toronto this year scoring three goals and an assist in five games.

Around the NHL

Alex Pietrangelo ($6,700) has only played one game against LA this year, but totaled 21 fantasy points without scoring a point in the game. I like him again tonight.
Max Comtois ($3,700) has scored four goals in six games against the Sharks this year, and is a better player on the road than home. I’ll be dipping into him tonight.
