James Reimer is making his Sharks' debut tonight, squaring off against a team they have played twice in the last week. Vancouver has scored three goals between the two games, and that was with Martin Jones in net of course. Reimer is a super cheap goalie who can free up tons of cash for your skaters. Vegas has the Sharks as monster -230 favorites, which is the highest of the night slate. Oddly enough Reimer has played Vancouver twice this season, winning both games, and holding them to two goals each game. Vancouver ranks 28th in goals per game, and are scoring just 2.31 goals per game since the break. I will definitely take some Reimer shots tonight, just know he comes with some inconsistency.

Florida is in the midst of a west coast swing and will take on one of the league's worst defenses tonight. Arizona has allowed 3.2 goals per game this season, and are in the bottom five in PK% (.773). Since the all-star break, they have allowed 3.8 goals per game. I anticipate Florida being a bit under owned on tonight's slate, as many will overlook the road team. Aleksander Barkov has five points in the last five games, and will look to keep it going. Look for this top line to pack a punch, and it will not cost you much to get them. Arizona is allowing the most fantasy points per game to opposing centers this season.

I am loving me some Erik Karlsson tonight against Toronto. He has seven assists in two games against them, with two coming on the man advantage. Expect Ottawa to put up some points against this hapless Maple Leafs' defense. They rank 24th in goals allowed per game (2.9), have allowed the eight most power-play goals this season. Toronto has allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing defenseman, making Karlsson a high upside guy to pay up for. Any defenseman logging plenty of ice time against Toronto is bound to put up big points.

Winnipeg has allowed the fourth most fantasy points per game to opposing left wings this season, and struggle on most aspects of defense. Montreal's power-play and top lines are solid targets tonight. Tomas Plekanec, Brendan Gallagher, and P.K. Subban being the others not mentioned in this sheet. Winnipeg rank in the bottom five in goals allowed, power-play goals allowed, and PK%. Not much has changed since the break, as Winnipeg is allowing 3.5 goals per game, and rank sixth in penalty minutes. Montreal has been slumping, so here is hoping many believe that continues at least for tonight.

The Flyers give people a lot of fits with their inconsistent play, especially the top line. Philly has scored three goals per game since the break, and I will be looking for them to continue that trend against Columbus. The Blue Jackets' defense has been better of late, but are an average bunch at best. They have allowed the fifth most fantasy points per game to opposing right wings, and have allowed the fourth most real points. Simmonds is on my radar, and I don't expect him to be on many others. He has a lot of ups and downs, making him unreliable at times. Look for tonight to be one of his higher ones

Value Plays

Mika Zibanejad (C - OTT) FD: $5,300 DK: $4,500

With some injuries up front, Mika Zibanejad has slipped into the first line, and has played well. He also plays on the second power-play unit. He has five points in the last four games, and the hat trick against Calgary was a big part of that. After matching up with St. Louis and Tampa Bay in the last two, he will get an easier matchup this evening. Toronto ranks 24th in goals allowed per game, and are in the bottom ten in PK%.

Andrei Markov (D - MON) FD: $4,300 DK: $4,700

Andrei Markov has 11 points in the last ten games, and is up to 37 on the season. He is a solid assist man, and I will be looking for him to get a helper or two tonight against Winnipeg. They rank in the bottom five in goals allowed per game, and struggle giving up goals down a man. They have allowed the third most power-play goals per game this season.
