CENTER of Attention
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
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 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
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
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!
