We had quite a bit of success yesterday, and once again its time to set our lineups to help you win some more cash!
San Jose Sharks @ Minnesota Wild: Confirmed goalies:

Florida Panthers @ Chicago Blackhawks: Confirmed goalies:
Our pick- Chicago
Washington Capitals @ New York Rangers: Confirmed goalies:
Our pick- New York Rangers
Boston Bruins @ Toronto Maple Leafs: Confirmed goalies:
Our pick- Toronto
Colorado Avalanche @ Vancouver Canucks: Confirmed goalies:
Our pick- Vancouver
Daily Fantasy Hockey Picks:
Our pick- Trevor Smith- Toronto Maple Leafs | $2,600 | vs. BOS: After the James Neal incident (kneeing Brad Marchand) and the hit Brooks Orpik laid on Loui Eriksson the Boston Bruins are left with two injuries on their number two line. This will leave the Bruins vulnerable depth wise, as Reilly Smith and Carl Soderberg will likely be thrust into bigger roles. Additionally, Chris Kelly was hurt for the Bruins as well last night. The Leafs ooze with sneaky deep value picks tonight, and Smith is one of them.
Center/Utility Alternate Pick:
On busy nights we give you a player from each dollar range, in order to best help you set your lineup. However, this is an incredibly rare day in the National Hockey league. Only 10 teams play, but most of them have a bunch of incredible offensive players. Therefore, there aren’t any bad picks.
That being said, we like Joe Pavelski of the San Jose Sharks ($7,100) the most out of all the high priced star centers available. The Minnesota Wild have a tough checking line of Matt Cooke – Kyle Brodziak - Torrey Mitchell, in addition to an excellent first line of Zach Parise – Mikko Koivu – Jason Pominville. The Wild’s weak link defensively is their third line. Pavelski is completely out of place in a third line center role (he is so much better than that). It would be shrewd to choose Pavelski tonight, as he is likely to feast on Charlie Coyle.
