Jonathan Bernier G (Colorado) - $8,400 FanDuel, $8,100 DraftKings

 

Bernier had a tough go of it last game when he played only 25 minutes and gave up three goals on 20 shots. But it has been a very good season for Bernier who is 16-10-2 with a 2.69 GAA and a .918 save percentage and Colorado faces Buffalo who should be without an injured Jack Eichel.

 

T.J. Brodie D (Calgary) - $5,100 FanDuel, $4,300 DraftKings

 

Brodie lost an assist credited to him on Friday, otherwise he would have a five game points streak going into tonight. Nevertheless, the defenseman has six assists in his last five contests and that gives him three goals and 26 points in 55 games. He has 10 power play points and is closing in on the 36 points he picked up last season for the Flames.

 

Ivan Provorov D (Philadelphia) - $5,300 FanDuel, $5,300 DraftKings

 

Provorov is a special player and the just turned 21-year-old has 10 goals and 26 points this season in 55 games. He had 30 points last season as a rookie last season and is poised to smash that mark. Provorov is going to be a top-scoring defenseman in a couple of years but still has plenty of offensive skill at this time.

 

John Tavares C (New York Islanders) - $8,500 FanDuel, $7,200 DraftKings

 

Tavares is on a four game points streak with two goals and three helpers and that puts him tied for seventh overall in NHL scoring with 62 points including 28 goals with Steven Stamkos of the Lightning. The Islanders are home to the Flames tonight and it should be a high scoring game as the Islanders score a lot but also give up plenty.

 

Rickard Rakell W (Anaheim) - $6,900 FanDuel, $6,700 DraftKings

 

Rakell saw his five game scoring streak end on Friday but he had four goals and nine points in the five contests. Rakell has had a great season with 22 goals and 45 points in 51 games and is on pace to smash his career mark in points as he had 51 last season.

 

Danton Heinen W (Boston) - $5,000 FanDuel, $4,800 DraftKings

 

Heinen has five points in his last four games and the rookie is up to 12 goals and 38 points with a plus-11 rating in 49 games. He is on the third line in five-on-five situations with Riley Nash and David Backes. Heinen has been a pleasant surprise this season and has been one of the top rookies this season.
