Make sure to check the RotoGrinders NHL Starting Goalies Page to confirm that the goalies listed below are starting prior to game time.
Tuukka Rask, Boston Bruins, $8,700 - The Boston Bruins are the biggest favorites on the board in what should be a low scoring game. Rask has been sensational in the month of December (1.54 GAA, .948 SV%, 2 SO) and he is the top dog in goal today.
Other Goalies To Target (Cash Games) – None
Max Pacioretty, Montréal Canadiens, $9,200 – With Brendan Gallagher back from injury, the Montréal Canadiens finally have their top line reunited. This trio was extremely productive earlier in the season and I expect them to create plenty of scoring chances in this game. Look for Pacioretty to do what he does best, fire shots on net and score goals.
Patrice Bergeron, Boston Bruins, $7,300 - Bergeron has three goals and 12 shots on net in his last three games and he continues to be the Bruins offensive leader. The Montreal Canadiens are really struggling and goaltender Mike Condon is certainly not the answer in net. Bergeron is a cash game stud and he should easily find the score sheet in this game.
Torey Krug, Boston Bruins, $6,000 - Krug is coming off a multi-point game versus the Ottawa Senators Tuesday night and I love his potential against a Montreal team struggling mightily on the back end. Look for Krug and the Bruins number one ranked power play to break through with the man advantage.
