It was another crazy night in the NHL as games continued to go against the grain. Even the games we pegged to be high-scoring affairs saw the points coming from unlikely sources.
Case in point, the Pittsburgh Penguins: they managed to score five goals, but Evgeni Malkin only managed one point. The only star that lived up to the hype was Alex Ovechkin, who continues to dominate in daily fantasy hockey. Hopefully you were able to use a couple of our mid range guys to carry you to daily fantasy hockey victory.
Today’s Top Daily Fantasy Hockey Picks
Top Fantasy Hockey Goalie
Viktor Fasth/Jonas Hiller - There is nothing quite like playing the Avalanche at home to almost guarantee a win. The Avalanche are brutal on the road, so it is pretty much a given that the Ducks will win. The only serious question that remains is whether or not they can get the shutout. Those extra points for shutouts are pure daily fantasy hockey gold.
Top Fantasy Hockey Forward
Jaromir Jagr - The ageless wonder just keeps producing and seems to be rejuvenated now that he is headed to the playoffs.
Top Fantasy Hockey Defenceman
Dion Phaneuf - Not a lot of top-line defenceman going tonight, and Phaneuf has been hot with nine points in his last eleven games.
