Daily Fantasy: Tuesday’s NHL picks
There are 10 games in the National Hockey League Tuesday, Dec. 2, and the Tampa Bay-Buffalo (7:30pm ET) and Philadelphia-San Jose (10:00pm ET) games are nationally televised on NBC Sports Network.
(FanWars.com salaries in parentheses) (all times ET)
Karri Ramo, Calgary ($18900 vs ARI): Ramo is scheduled to start Tuesday against the Coyotes. Arizona hung five goals on Calgary's provincial neighbors to the north, topping the Edmonton Oilers 5-2 Monday night. However, Calgary hasn't been a very kind stop for the Coyotes over the years, as they have lost six straight in Calgary. The home team is 17-5 in the past 22, and if the trends hold up, Ramo is in line for a win for his Fantasy owners and costs just a fraction of other starting netminders.
Tyler Bozak, Toronto ($12950 vs DAL): Bozak has been on fire lately, posting five goals with a plus-2 rating over his past three games. And as an added bonus, he has four blocked shots over the past three games while two of his markers have been of the game-winning variety. Until he cools down, he is actually the 12th-most expensive center on the board.
Zemgus Girgensons, Buffalo ($7600 vs TB): Girgensons has been performing at a point-per-game clip over the past seven games, posting four goals with three assists in seven games since Nov. 13 while posting a plus-7 rating during the impressive span. His inclusion on your DFS lineup will also allow you to save plenty of salary to spread across other positions.
Johan Franzen, LW-RW, Detroit ($10550 vs FLA): Franzen is expected to slide up to the team's top scoring unit with Pavel Datsyuk ($9450) and Henrik Zetterberg ($14550) with Justin Abdelkader (shoulder) sidelined due to a shoulder injury. Franzen has assists in back-to-back games, and he has managed 12 shots on goal (SOG) over the past four outings. Franzen will be productive up top, and he comes with a nice price.
Alex Killorn, LW-C, Tampa Bay ($9600 at BUF): Killorn is on quite the roll lately, posting at least one point in seven consecutive games (5 G, 3 A) with a plus-4 rating during the span. Since Oct. 14, he has potted seven goals with 12 points in 13 games. He is on a sustained hot streak, but he comes with an ultra-low salary.
Jake Muzzin, Los Angeles ($9300 vs BOS): Muzzin has been on an extended hot streak since Nov. 6, posting one goal with 10 assists with a plus-5 rating over the past 11 games. He also has 18 blocked shots during the stretch which makes him a slam-dunk play at a very favorable salary level.
