Sergei Bobrovsky, CBJ vs MTL ($8,700):
Bobrovsky has won each of his last three home starts, and the Canadiens have one of the worst road records in the league at 9-21-4 while averaging just 2.51 GPG, 29th in the league. Bobrovsky has allowed just seven goals and seen an average of 29.8 shots in his last six meetings against Montreal.


Jordan Staal, CAR at NYR ($5,200):
Over the last month, the Rangers have allowed the most fantasy points to centers, including 21 goals and 31 assists. Carolina averages 34.2 SOG per game which is fifth-most in the league, while the Rangers’ 3.13 GAA is 25th in the league.

Pierre-Luc Dubois, CBJ vs MTL ($6,000): The 19-year-old Dubois has been impressive in his rookie campaign with 37 points — 15 goals — in 69 games. The No. 3 pick from 2016 has a goal and five assists in his last four outings and had a goal against Montreal earlier in the season. The Canadiens have allowed 15 goals and 26 assists to centers over their last 13 games putting Dubois in a good position to continue his debut season.


Tyler Toffoli, LA vs VAN ($5,900):
Toffoli has 21 goals and 17 assists on the campaign and is as happy as anyone that Jeff Carter is back centering his line. Since Carter’s return seven games ago, Toffoli has two goals, two assists and 24 SOG. The right winger is third in the league with 11.73 shots per 60 minutes at even strength and has two goals and two assists in his last four against Vancouver.

Cam Atkinson, CBJ vs MTL ($6,200): Atkinson has 29 points — 13 goals — in 53 games this season. At even strength, Atkinson is fourth in the league in both shots per 60 minutes (11.62) and high-danger scoring chances per 60 minutes (5.93). The Connecticut native has recorded at least one point in six of his last eight contests while firing 27 SOG. Montreal has had a horrific season, and Atkinson should be licking his chops against the team he’s recorded six goals and three assists in his last eight outings against.

Chris Kreider, NYR vs CAR ($5,200): Kreider has seven goals in his last eight games against Carolina. The left winger has just a goal and an assist in seven games since returning, but he could see some opportunities on the first line and top power-play unit.


Keith Yandle, FLA vs OTT ($5,200):
Yandle has logged at least one point in each of his last five games with eight assists over that span. The Senators have allowed 10 goals and 22 assists to defensemen over the last 13 games, which amounts to the second-most fantasy points to the position over the last month. Yandle has 46 points — six goals — on the season.

Marc-Edouard Vlasic, SJ vs DET ($4,300): Vlasic has posted 29 points and a career-high 10 goals this year. The Red Wings have allowed 10 goals and 27 assists to defensemen over their last 14 games. The Quebec native has averaged 11.8 fantasy points per game over his last four, and with such a depressed salary, there should be no issues with Vlasic exceeding his value.
