Line-Up Breakdown: The Oilers have the most explosive offense in the NHL and as long as they are in the playoffs, I will be playing Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent Hopkins. They are guaranteed points in any game against any team. The three are about as automatic as any trio in all of fantasy sports. With Patrice Bergeron out the next two games for the Bruins, their secondary players are going to need to step up if Boston is going to take care of business against Florida. I like Taylor Hall and Trent Frederic to step up and fill some of the scoring void. Hall will get a lot of top line time tonight so look for him to capitalize on it. Anders Lee has been a non factor thus far through two games for the Islanders but down 0-2 and with their backs against the wall, New York will be leaning on their veterans to step up. Speaking of stepping, Ilya Sorokin has been brilliant for the Islanders this season and should be in the MVP conversation. He is a terrific value at $7.700. Sorokin has not played bad in this series thus far surrendering only six goals in two games. He has scored 20.5 points and 10.4 fantasy points respectively in this series thus far. The Carolina offense is a shell of what they can be so Sorokin is a shutout candidate tonight. Defensively, I like the value of drafting Esa Lindell and Jacob Slavin. Both quarterback power plays and both are capable of getting on the score sheet in a variety of ways. Gabe Vilardi scored in game two against Edmonton and has been one of the Kings most consistent offensive players. He is averaging 8.5 FPPG this season.
