There are so many things to consider with this game that is likely to decide the next team who gets to print their name on the Stanley Cup. The Montreal Canadiens have dug themselves a deep hole and the Tampa Bay Lightning are on the doorstep of back to back wins. That will be an incredible accomplishment and we find it hard to believe that it will not happen tonight. Patrick Maroon may end up as a three time Cup hoister which boggles the mind. 

Here’s a feisty lineup For DFS Hockey 7/5/21 (using DraftKings Values)

CaptainA. Vasilevskiy$16,200 
Flex $2,000 

There is really no reason to not go with Andrei Vasilevskiy at the top of your lineup. We think he should be the Conn Smythe winner and there is a good chance he takes home that trophy tonight. We are all going to look back on his career and wonder how he did not win more trophies overall. 

This pair is defining what it means to be top line. Brayden Point and Nikita Kucherov have been here before and it shows. Sometimes the difference is just maturity and having been through it before. We do not want to talk crap about the 

Canadiens it is just that they are up against a juggernaut.

Did you stick with our cheap guy? He got you two goals if you did. If you know who it was then you should probably take him again but we are going to be throwing a couple other names in the ring you might be interested in.

Now what do you get if you sign up now?
• More poutine than you know what to do with
• Guys who may be drowning their sorrows on St Catherines St by the end of the week •Amazing sports advice to keep you busy while hockey is on the self

It would be rude not to put up a couple Habs tonight. We should be seeing their finest performance of the year with everything on the line. There is literally nothing to lose. They need to bare their teeth and come out hot. Put Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield on your radar and even consider stacking them. They might have a chance at this again due to how young they are but this may be their only chance.

Still not sure what you want to do for defensemen? Sure this is Showdown mode and you do not strictly care about position but it is never bad to load up on some hits and blocks to carry you across the line. You already know Hedman is worth an own but who else’s tires might you be kicking? Also worth a stack would be Jeff Petry and Ben Chiarot. Between the two you get all the goodies.

Josh Anderson and Jake Evans are other Canadiens worth looking into. Anderson is up on the second line and the club certainly sees him as the future with the beautiful contract he signed last year. Jesperi Kotkanieme is oddly scratched tonight. We do not know why but all that matters is that you know Jake Evans has taken his spot. Give them a spin and 

We hope to see you again for game 5, but if not thank you so much for an awesome year. We are ready to be back come October and will be working hard in the meantime to keep abreast of all things ice hockey. Set a reminder by following us on Twitter (@FantasyDFSX).
