Today’s 7 game NHL main slate rrccomendations by Brandon Silvers from @DfsCheatsheet

CENTER of Attention

Dylan Larkin

In his past 3 games, Larkin has been an effective part of Detroit’s 1st line. He has amassed 2 goals, 3 assists, and 7 shots on goal with an averahe of 20.8 FPPG. He gets the Rangers and goalie Shesterkin who hasn’t seen under a  90% save rate in his small 3 game career. Larkin and the Wings find a way to get it done.

Also Consider: Niklas Backstrom

Stack With: Tyler Bertuzzi & Filip Zadina

Winging It

Alex Ovechkin

Ovechkin is in his own category and nearly impossible to stop. He has put up some insanely good numbers lately. In his last 4 he has 9 goals, 1 Assist, and 17 shots on goal totalling 144.3 FPTS (36.1 FPPG)

STACK WITH: NIKLAS BACKSTROM & TOM WILSON

Leon Draisitl

Leon is the playmaker for the Edmonton Oilers and has his work cut out facing the defending champions at home vs the Saint Louis Blues. In his last 6 he has 3 goals, 9 assists, and 19 shots on goal for an average of 24.6 FPPG. Look for him to distribute the puck to the scorers.

Also Consider: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Tyler Bertuzzi

D-Fence

Justin Braun

Braun has emerged in the past two weeks to have some of the best numbers of his career. The 3rd line guy is a sneaky play that could pay high dividends. In his last 5, the Flyer defenseman has 3 goals, 1 assist, and 7 shots on goal with 13.6 FPPG

Also Consider: Shae Theodore, J. Lauzon, T. Sanheim

GOALIE

Ilya Samsonov

Samsonov is 10-0 in his last 10 starts including a shutout. He has averaged a 94% save rate and will Face an Aneheim offense who ranks 27th in efficiency. Pay up and call it a day!
