The New York Islanders will try to extend their win streak tonight as they take on New Jersey at Nassau Coliseum. So far at home, the Isles haven’t lost in regulation this season so let’s see if that continues tonight.
Last time out against Boston on Tuesday, it was a low-scoring affair, so unfortunately not a great fantasy day unless you had Semyon Varlamov in the lineup. In three games against New Jersey this year, the Isles have just six goals, keep that in mind if you do decide to make any plays tonight.
With all that in mind, here are three players I’d consider in my daily fantasy lineup:
DraftKings: $8,200 | Fanduel: $8,600
It’s expensive, but man is Semyon Varlamov good. He put together another fantastic performance with a .970 save percentage on Tuesday night. That got him 24.9 fantasy points in the shootout win.
Keep playing him until it stops working. There’s a good reason why he’s a Vezina candidate right now.
DraftKings: $3,900 | Fanduel: $4,200
Anthony Beauvillier has just one point over his last three games but I feel a breakout coming. He has nine shots on goal over the last two games, and feels due to find the back of the net. Plus, with Brock Nelson hot he’ll benefit from playing on his wing.
With just two goals in 17 games, you’d have to expect that number to start to go up.
DraftKings: $5,100 | Fanduel: $4,600
I refuse to believe that Ryan Pulock is going to go the entire year without a goal. I mean, he has to score eventually right? Pulock has under 10 fantasy points in his last seven games but once the goals start to go, I have a feeling they’ll come in bunches.

The ironic part, Pulock has still been good even would putting pucks in the net. He has 10 assists so far, which would pace him out to 32 over a full season. Add his nine goals that he usually gets and that makes him a 40 point player.
