The Islanders‘ offense is coming off another solid performance in their last game out, putting up a four-spot against the Boston Bruins, who generally are very good at stopping the other team from scoring.
The team has scored three goals or more in four of the last five after an anemic start to the season. They still aren’t a team that is going to be in the top half of the league in goals on the year, but they’re giving themselves a chance night in and night out.
Here are three players you should consider playing in Daily Fantasy tonight from the Islanders:
DraftKings: $6,700 | Fanduel: $6,900
Barzal is a little pricey on both DraftKings and Fanduel but it’s worth it right now. He has 14 points in 13 games played and has points in the last eight games for the Islanders. The offense usually tends to go as he goes, and right now he’s firing on all cylinders.
Expect him to finish on the score sheet and he may even find the back of the net as well. He’s a safe play for anyone in DFS today.
DraftKings: $5,700 | Fanduel: $7,000
If you play on DraftKings you’re getting really good value here. Anders Lee picked up an assist last time out but hasn’t scored a goal in three games. I’m looking to stack both Lee and Barzal who play on the same line and tend to play together on the power play.
The Islanders’ power play has been much more efficient recently, I’m predicting Lee gets one on the power play tonight for the Islanders.
DraftKings: $2,500 | Fanduel: $3,000
I’m going to continue to ride Oliver Wahlstrom as well. He hasn’t scored in the last five games but he’s been getting a ton of chances. He has nine shots on goal in the last three games and the third line finally looks like it’s starting to gel.

He’s going to get going eventually. He’s putting himself in too many precious opportunities not to.
