Minnesota Wild @ Vegas Golden Knights
Spread: VGK -1.5
Marcus Johansson - OUT
Carson Soucy - Day-to-Day
Max Pacioretty - Game-time Decision
Tomas Nosek - Day-to-Day
Marc-Andre Fleury , F VGK
Fleury has all the big game experience in the world, so he should be prepared for this game. This is a game Vegas should win at home, so I am going to take the edge here with him because of that. His last two games haven't been great, but I expect him to be at his best tonight.
Cam Talbot , G MIN
Even if the Wild dont' win this game Talbot could still be valuable. Vegas has put as many as 42 shots on him in this series, and I wouldn't be surprised if he saw around 40 shots tonight, and if that is the case you will want him in your lineup somewhere.
Alex Pietrangelo , D VGK
From an upside perspective, Pietrangelo may have the highest in this contest. He can hit both the shot and block bonus, and could also deliver some points. Also because of his shots and blocks we are getting a relatively safe floor as well.
Jonathan Marchessault , F VGK
Marchessault is a player that can hit the shot bonus and deliver points. Getting those shots in could be vital in what could be a low scoring game.
Kevin Fiala , F MIN
Much like Marchessault, Fiala shoots the puck a lot. The points haven't been there for him this series, and they might not be there tonight either, but if you can get to the shot bonus, then its not a bad deal.
Alec Martinez , D VGK
Night in and night out, Martinez is nearly a lock to get the block bonus. The question is, will you get enough of anything else for him to hit value?
Nick Bonino , F MIN
Down the stretch Bonino was one of the best player for the Wild. He has gotten blocks throughout this series, but he is yet to get any points. If the Wild are going to win tonight they will need to get something from Bonino.
Mattias Janmark F VGK
Janmark has points in three of the six games for Vegas, and he is the type of player who could get a greasy goal for you as well.
Zach Whitecloud , D VGK
Whitecloud moves the puck well, and he has been blocking shots also, so we could luck into a secondary assist, and maybe get to the blocks bonus as well.
