After beating the Buffalo Sabres in three straight 5-2 victories, the Islanders will take on the Boston Bruins, a team they are also undefeated against. In three games, the Isles have outscored Boston 12-4.
The Islanders offense has been incredible with 15 goals in their last three games, and seven the last time they took on Boston on February 25. With all four lines rolling, the production has come from all over for New York.
Here are three players to consider playing today on the New York Islanders:
DraftKings: $6,100 | Fanduel: $6,900
Mat Barzal had 15 fantasy points the last time the Islanders played Boston in late February. In his last four games, Barzy has four points and in his career, he’s faired pretty well against the Bruins. He has 10 points in 12 games.
It’s almost like the thought of being passed on three times in a row is a motivator or something. Thanks, Don Sweeney!
DraftKings: $6,300 | Fanduel: $7,000
Anders Lee just can’t stop scoring goals. With three goals in the past four games, Anders Lee has come into his own when it comes to finding the back of the net. The Isles will be going up against old buddy Jaroslav Halak tonight.
The last time these two teams played, Lee had two points (1 goal, 1 assist) in the 7-2 win.
DraftKings: $7,600 | Fanduel: $8,400
Death, taxes, and good Semyon Varlamov outings. On the season, Varly has a .926 save percentage and a 2.10 goals against average. In three starts against Boston this year he has just four goals allowed and a .959 save percentage.
