NHL | Must-Haves | 2/11/18

Matthew Tkachuk (FDraft: $11,200 DK: $5,500 FD: $6,500): The winger is on the second line and first power play tonight in a great matchup versus the Islanders. The New York Islanders allow 3.67 goals per game at home, while the Flames score 2.88 in games on the road. New York has been getting torched of late, allowing 10 goals over their last two games. Tkachuk is averaging 3.2 shots per game over the past week, which bodes well considering the Isles allow nearly 36 shots per game on home ice.  Tkachuk has also seen his ice time rise to nearly 18 minutes per game, and is in line to see those minutes tonight. Be sure to give Tkachuk a look when filling out your line this evening.

Reilly Smith (FDraft: $12,100 DK: $5,900 FD: $6,100): One of the biggest surprises of this season, the Vegas Golden Knights, have been electric in home contests. Tonight, they get a plus matchup as the Philadelphia Flyers come to town. Smith will man the first line and power play this evening against a Flyers team allowing 2.85 goals per game on the road. Furthermore, the Flyers have allowed three or more goals in all but one game dating back to January 23. Smith has also been much better at home this season, scoring .92 points per game at home, compared to .77 points per game away. This game has an over/under of six goals, and Vegas is projected to net 3.4 of them. Roster Smith and reap the rewards this evening.
