Saturday’s Value Plays
LW – Alexander Ovechkin – Washington Capitals – $166,892
OV added to his point total in game 1 with a goal. Look for that streak to continue this afternoon.
C – Nicklas Backstrom – Washington Capitals - $93,593
Backstrom found his way back to the score sheet in game 1 with an assist. He’s going to get his minutes and I like his price point today.
D – Mike Green – Washington Capitals –
Green kept the point streak alive with an assist in game 1. He is now on a 5 game point streak for the Caps. His price point is high but he deserves to be in your lineups.
C - Marcus Johansson – Washington Capitals – $60,881
Johansson is still playing on the top line for the Capitals and as long as he’s there he deserves your consideration. He scored in game 1 and is still providing great value for a player at 61k.
C – Derek Stepan – New York Rangers – $121,459
The Rangers can’t afford to go down 2 games in this series and you can rest assured that the stars on the Rangers got an ear full from their coach on Thursday. Do you really think Holtby will keep the Rangers at bay for a 2nd straight game? Me neither.
RW – Ryan Callahan – New York Rangers – $117,824
The Rangers captain is on fire. He’s on a 8 game point streak where he’s put up 11 points, a +6 rating to go along with 26 shots on goal. Look for him to lead by example on Saturday.
C – Brad Richards – New York Rangers – $99,348
Richards point streak has come to an end but his hopes for a second Stanley Cup are still temporarily alive. Before being held pointless in game 1 Richards had put up 11 points in 6 games with a +8 rating.
RW – Dustin Brown – Los Angeles Kings - $89,958
Brown is all about the playoffs, and despite the Kings struggle to score; I like him on Saturday night. He already has a goal in the series on 8 shots. The Kings have their backs up against the wall. I expect them to play their best game of the season.
C – Anze Kopitar – Los Angeles Kings – $86,929
Kopitar had an assist in Thursday’s matchup and he’ll be looking for more on Saturday night. The Kings won’t make a series of this without their #1 center leading the charge.
LW – Milan Lucic – Boston Bruins - $77,540
C – David Krejci – Boston Bruins - $60,578
I list these guys together as I feel their a package deal. Either start them both or walk away. I personally would start them both which is why I suggested them on Wednesday. The Bruins are built for the playoffs and they’ll only go as far as this line takes them. I truly believe these guys, along with Horton, will be the force that takes Boston to the conference finals.
C – Pavel Datsyuk – Detroit Red Wings - $117,521
He was back to his old self again on Thursday night. He now has 10 points in his last 5 games. You don’t need another reason to start him.
C – Damien Brunner – Detroit Red Wings - $73,602
He had limited ice time, only playing 11:38 on Thursday against the Ducks, but he made the most of his opportunities. Brunner scored once and added 2 assists. At 73k that’s tremendous value.
RW – Teemu Selanne – Anaheim Ducks - $54,520
If you can find a player for $54,000 that has points in 3 consecutive games he’s worth a start.
RW – Bobby Ryan – Anaheim Ducks - $63,304
Ryan looked great in the Ducks defeat in game 1. With a goal and an assist to go along with a +2 rating and 3 shots on goal he far exceed his price tag.
