David Perron (DK: $5,700 FD: $6,600): Our lone Must-Have for tonight’s five-game slate gets a great matchup on home ice when the Anaheim Ducks travel to St. Louis to take on the Blues. The Blues come into this game as the heaviest favorites on the slate, and for good reason. The Ducks are losers of three straight, and have surrendered 3.8 goals per game so far in the month of January. The Blues are currently riding a three-game winning streak, while scoring over four goals per game in the month of January. The Ducks have struggled defensively this year, but their defense against RWs is significantly worse. They come into this game giving up over 20 DraftKings points per game to opposing team’s RWs, which is the 4th-most in the entire league. The Blues should also have a huge advantage on special teams tonight, as the Ducks have given up the 2nd-most penalty minutes in the league, and if given the chance, the Blues should be able to capitalize on their man advantages. They come into this game currently converting on over 25.2% of their power plays, which is 4th-best in the league. Anaheim has struggled to kill off penalties this year, as their penalty kill of 78% is 24th in the league. Perron has been dominant on the man advantage this year, as he leads the Blues in PPG (8), and PPP (24), and should be able to add to his already impressive numbers on the power play. Perron is in the midst of a four-game point streak, in which he has scored goals in those four games, all while recording six points during this stretch. With the Blues having what should be the most favorable matchup on the slate, you can safely lock Perron into all of your lineups tonight.
