Claude Giroux (DK: $6,700 FD: $7,300): A rivalry game with a 6.5 over/under on a small slate? Count us in. Giroux is an excellent option tonight in a game with his Philadelphia Flyers projected more than three goals in a home contest against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins have struggled against opposing centers of late, allowing 4.6 actual points per game to opposing centers over the last four weeks. This opens up Giroux to see some scoring chances tonight. Giroux is on the first line and first power play unit tonight, presenting him with even more opportunity. Furthermore, tonight’s matchup has some history of high-scoring affairs. Since 2016-2017, only one game has had four or fewer goals scored in it. Confidently lock in Giroux tonight as our NHL Must-Have as this rivalry heats up down the stretch of this 2018-19 season.
