Steady as she goes. Andrew Copp and Roman Josi, our two top picks yesterday combined for a goal and four assists along with 11 shots. Grubauer cruised to a win over the Montreal Canadiens and our lowest priced guy scored two goals. Not too shabby. 

The game of the night is certainly going to be the Boston Bruins vs the Florida Panthers. Both teams are playing very well right now and we should all be in for a treat. This is also the day that the Toronto Maple Leafs play the Chicago Blackhawks. Neither team is doing too hot right now and maybe someone plays well? We are staying away from this one and so should you.

Here’s a sneaky lineup For DFS Hockey 10/26/21 (using DraftKings Values)

CenterA. Barkov$7,500
Center $3,000
WingJ. Huberdeau$6,100
GoalieV. Vanecek$8,300

We are going hard after Panthers today so we are not going to overdo it with Bobrovskiy who has been playing well. He also faces a Bruins offense that can light up any goalie on any night. Save him for later. Instead we are looking at Vitek Vanecek. He had a bad game against a surging Flames team and got pulled but we are not particularly worried. He is still just above two goals against average which is stellar. Ovi and crew will make sure he gets the goal support for the win.

Instead of wasting money on Matthews, go for Alexander Barkov. The captain of the Panthers is chilling at a point per game right now and even that has been inconsistent. He faces a stout defense in Boston and will have to work hard to score but this is one of those games where he can make an even bigger name for himself. He deserves to be a superstar.

The fact that Florida can split up Jonathan Huberdeau and Barkov is a testament to how strong their team is. He and Sam Bennett have been on a tear together. They made mince meat of the Coyotes on Monday and the look Bennett gave to Hubie as they were celebrating is enough to warm even the coldest of hearts. 

Now who is your main guy on defense? Miro Heiskanen is a bit all over the place. But if his every other game pattern continues he will have a huge night tonight. It helps that VGK is struggling really hard out of the gate. John Carlson is also not showing his usual scoring talent but did get a goal in his last match. That is enough of a good foot forward, coupled with a game against the Red Wings, for us to draft him. 

Here Is What You Get If You Sign Up For $99 For Six Months
• A sweet center who is a rising Star
• Hand selected wingers that are ready to score
• All the deep insights you need in your daily fantasy sports life

Radek Faksa is currently the second line center for Dallas and costs a measly $3,000. His ice time has dropped a little which is concerning but he still has Tyler Seguin on his wing and a juicy matchup in Vegas. 

Zach Hyman is a little on the high price side but he scored two goals in each of his last two games so that is going to cost you. He plays with you-know-who and has every opportunity in the world to get it done. He is a little cheaper than Puljujarvi and we will use that savings on some of our big names.

We tried really hard to stay away from the Leafs but Michael Bunting just has our eye for some reason today. It is the lowest cost, highest reward choice you can make from Toronto. He is the new Zach Hyman there and if Matthews and Marner figure their thing out, he benefits.

The Capitals have some obvious big names but it is a middle of the road name that you should be paying attention to. Guess who Anthony Mantha used to play for? That is correct. The Detroit Red Wings. We here at FantasyDFSExperts are big on former team matchups because NHLers always rise to the occasion. Mantha is going to have himself a game.

We cannot quit Moritz Seider yet. We have talked a little bit about him before and the last time we took him he got us an assist. The matchup is not the best but he is showing everyone that he does not care what is on paper. When he is on the ice, he is in control.

Keep those subscriptions coming! If you have a great day, let us know on Twitter (@FantasyDFSX). We should also let you know that there is a confession to make. We did not have tacos yesterday. It shames us deeply but we tried very hard to make it up to you with some meaty picks today. Have a great rest of your week!
