NHL DFS Picks For January 28, 2022

Tuuka Rask DFS
PHILADELPHIA, PA - FEBRUARY 03: Boston Bruins Goalie Tuukka Rask (40) makes a save of the puck during the second period of the National Hockey League game between the Boston Bruins and the Philadelphia Flyers on February 3, 2021, at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA.

The Boston Bruins are not happy about the last minute heroics of the Colorado Avalanche tying the game late and then winning in overtime. They will be looking to quickly reassert their own dominance against the Arizona Coyotes who are icing their backup goaltender today. Please keep Scott Wedgewood in your prayers tonight.

If you are looking for a game to catch live then turn on the Minnesota Wild vs the New York Rangers. These two heavyweights have been grinding out points in the standings. It may look like the Wild are way behind since they trail the Rangers by seven points, but they have played far fewer games and actually hold a better win percentage overall. This will be a fun one. Each of their Russian boys are worth a deep look if you can afford them.

Here’s a might lineup For DFS Hockey 1/28/22 (using DraftKings Values)

CenterD. Larkin$6,200
WingK. Kaprizov$7,800
GoalieT. Rask$8,500

Tuukka Rask is having a bit of a bumpy ride in his first few games after many months of chilling at home in Finland. Tonight looks like one he will be on for. The team will be very much playing for him and trying to make the opposing goalie a wedge of Swiss Cheese.

Dylan Larkin comes with a bonus warning about a goalie today. If Casey DeSmith does start for the Penguins then the Red Wings are going to have a much easier go of things. Larkin is crushing it this year with 20 goals already, which puts him at a 40 goal pace. That is rarefied air if he can keep it up. We are looking for one tonight.

Kirill Kaprizov is blowing away all expectations. A lot of people were pulling on the collar feeling as though the nine million dollar contract was going to be a bit tight. He has gotten two points in six of his last eight games and is not slowing down.

Artemi Panarin’s stats are hilariously close to Kaprizov’s and for some reason after putting up three points in his last game, his price dropped by $600. Panarin has twelve points in his last six games. Save $2,000 on Kirill the Thrill and go to town. 

We are going to immediately go spend those fat stacks on Cale Makar. He was the true hero of the night vanquishing the Bruins with a goal in overtime. He has six power play points in his last ten games and the kid can do no wrong. We are also taking a long look at Gabriel Landeskog who should take MacKinnon’s spot after that nasty break of his nose. Let’s see how the Blackhawks fare against this runaway train. 

Tom Wilson and the Capitals have lost the last two games. It just so happened to coincide with Ovechkin not scoring a goal. Wilson is in a little drought of his own and should be looking to pick up a couple of assists tonight. You can also trim off $300 and take Lucas Raymond and stack him with Larkin. We really like their odds of being an upset tonight.

For your secondary center look no further than the second line on two of our favored teams today. Erik Haula has been remarkably consistent for the Bruins sitting between Hall and Pastrnak. Pius Suter has been taking a lot more shots recently and has been getting rewarded for it. Full steam ahead for the Bruins and Wings.

Andre Burakovsky seemed to disappear for a few games, but quickly popped back on the radar. Look for some extra opportunity here if Landeskog or Rantanen move to center. He could see some top line minutes and those are very, very valuable on this team.

We are going to toss one bone to the Coyotes. Shayne Gostisbehere has been a steady presence on their blue line. Surprisingly, once Jakub Chychrun came back, Ghostbear kept power play one time. The Yotes are trying to win games and it is not likely that Rask gets a shutout. 

These all feel like power picks. There are no weak links here, though we do need to go after some more defensemen tomorrow to give them some more love. We post all things Fantasy and DFS on Twitter (@FantasyDFSX). Have yourselves a wonderful Friday and stay safe this weekend.
