Alex Ovechkin (DK: $8300 FD: $8800) The Washington Capitals will host the New Jersey Devils tonight in what is likely to be a bloodbath. The Capitals are the top team in the NHL this season while the Devils currently sit in 2nd to last. The Devils are giving up 3.49 goals per game this season (30th) while the Caps are averaging 3.56 goals per game (4th). Ovechkin has been his usual self to no surprise as he sits 5th with 26 goals this season and is on pace for more than 40 yet again. Ovechkin comes at a high price as always, but his floor is something that cannot be seen by most. Ovechkin leads the league with 210 total shots this season, he is always likely to get the DraftKings shot bonus. These two teams met a couple weeks ago and Ovechkin managed to come away with a goal and an assist as the Caps pulled off the win, scoring a whopping six goals. The Caps come into this game as the largest favorites on the slate and have an implied total of 4.25 goals tonight. It is not common a team has an implied total of over four goals, and because of this we suggest you lock in Ovechkin tonight.

Steven Stamkos (DK: $7100 FD: $8600) The Tampa Bay Lightning travel to Philadelphia to take on the Flyers tonight in a game that may not be as close as many think. The Lightning are currently riding a nine game win streak and Stamkos has been a huge part of that. Over their win streak, Stamkos has recorded four goals and 10 assists while averaging nearly three shots per game. Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Flyers have had a bumpy road since the Christmas break. In their seven games since the break, the Flyers are giving up 4.29 goals per game and their penalty kill is stopping opponents only 75% of the time. In those seven games the Flyers have actually given up five or more goals, five times! Stamkos playing with Kucherov and Point has been like watching a magician perform a trick. You don’t know how they make the passes or the goal that they do, but you don’t ask questions and just clap because your money is going to good use. Tampa has the 2nd-highest implied total tonight at 3.6 goals and we suggest you lock this red-hot winger in.
