Chicago Blackhaws (+105) @ St. Louis Blues (-125)
It's game seven ladies and gentlemen! This is what it all comes down too! This will be a fun to watch, so grab some popcorn and enjoy the game! I know your not reading this article to hear how amazing this game 7 is going to be, so let me go ahead and tell you my top plays for tonight's big game.
On the Blackhawks side of things, it all starts with -- Patrick Kane. He is listed at $8,800 on Draftkings (highest on the slate), so it is up to you on whether or not you want to pay that price tag. I like him today, but he just takes a big chunk of my salary, so I will be fading him. There are some guys on this Blackhawks team that are cheaper, and could produce similar numbers. One of those guys is -- Artemi Panarin. In 11 games against the Blues, he has a total of ten points and 37 shots on goal, which is good for an average of 4.0 fantasy points. You can save $1,900 by going with Panarin over Kane, and get the similar production. Artem Anisimov is one of the cheaper options on the Blackhawks that I like tonight. He got off to a rough start at the beginning of the series, but he he has picked it up. He has record three points in his last four games. Corey Crawford is in play for me in tournaments. It will be tough to win game 7 on the road, but the Blackhawks have won two games @STL this series and he has a 5-3-2 record against them this season.
Other guys I like: Niklas Hjalmarsson, Brent Seabrook, and Marian Hossa
For the Blues, they also have guys in play and my favorite play of the night belongs to Vladimir Tarasenko. Not only has he recorded an average of one point per contest, but he has that ability to explode (similar to Kane) and will be playing at home. I see him feeding off the energy of the home crowd and putting on a show. He is averaging 5.5 fantasy points in his last 10 and is a guy worth paying up for. You save $1,100 by paying up for Tarasenko instead of Kane. Alex Piertangelo is my favorite defensemen of the night. He has 19 blocked shots, 6 points, 13 shots on goal and is averaging 31 minutes on the ice per game this series. He is filling up the stat sheet and should have another big night for the Blues. I am fading Brian Elliot in cash games. He has not looked all that the last three contest, allowing an average of four goals.
Other guys I like: Colton Parayko, Kevin Shattenkirk and Jaden Shwartz
