Pekka Rinne, NAS vs. WPG ($7,800):
The veteran Finn has won eight consecutive games and owns an incredible 22-4-2 record at Bridgestone Arena. The Jets are also playing their third road game in four nights. Winnipeg lost the first two and scored just three goals. Rinne's short salary seals the deal.


Connor McDavid, EDM at CGY ($7,300):
Considering McDavid has racked up 18 goals, 30 points and 80 shots through his past 19 contests, finding him at this price is surprising. He's making a run at a second consecutive Art Ross Trophy and has proven time and time again to be a matchup proof option.

Mikko Koivu, MIN vs. COL ($4,700): While Koivu has missed the scoresheet in consecutive games, he did have a five-game point streak prior to the recent drought. Additionally, the veteran should find favorable five-on-five shifts with the Eric Staal line likely tasked with matching up against Nathan MacKinnon. It's worth noting that Colorado is allowing the third most goals per 60 minutes on the road (3.49) this season, too.


J.T. Miller, TB vs. OTT ($5,500):
Projected to skate with Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov in all situations, Miller is a strong mid-priced target. The American has collected six points through his past five games, and his new line assignment is cushy with Stamkos and Kucherov combining for 5.78 goals per 60 minutes this season. Ottawa is also playing its second road game in consecutive nights.

Jake DeBrusk, BOS at CAR ($4,900): The rookie has found a groove alongside David Krejci and Rick Nash of late with two goals, seven assists and 17 shots over his past seven games. Carolina is playing its second game in consecutive nights, and Cam Ward is likely to start in nets for the Hurricanes. The veteran netminder enters with an .806 save percentage through his past two starts and a target-worthy .907 mark for the campaign.

Charlie Coyle, MIN vs. COL ($4,300): While it's been an underwhelming season for Coyle, he appears to be kick-starting a strong finish with an active three-game point streak. He forms a cost-effective stack with center Mikko Koivu, and as highlighted, this is a favorable matchup for the Wild.


John Klingberg, DAL at MON ($6,100):
With just three assists through his past 10 games, Klingberg is ripe for a bounce-back showing. He's buoyed his value with 25 shots, 21 blocked shots and an average of 25:02 of ice time (4:29 on the power play) during the stretch. It also encouraging that Montreal is playing its second game in consecutive nights and will be dressing an injury-depleted lineup.

Torey Krug, BOS at CAR ($5,800): The Michigan native's big season continues to roll along, as he's collected three goals, seven assists and 25 shots while averaging 4:12 of power-play time through his past seven outings. As noted, the Hurricanes shouldn't be viewed as a daunting matchup, either.
