Can the New York Islanders make it eight straight wins tonight? We’ll find out as their back in action taking on the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center.

Last time out, the Isles put up five goals in a rather dominant display of offense. They’ll look to keep that trend rolling as they have five goals in four of their last five games. They’re now 13th in the league in goals for on the season.

Let’s take a look at three players from the Islanders who you can look to play in Daily Fantasy.

Semyon Varlamov

DraftKings: $8,200 | Fanduel: $8,700

I know, I screwed you guys last time with playing Semyon Varlamov when Barry Trotz decided to go with the rookie Ilya Sorokin. In four of his last six starts, Varly has over 20 fantasy points so I’m more than willing to get back on the wagon.

On the season, he is 12-4-3 with a .929 save percentage and a 2.03 goals against average. He’s worth the high price on both platforms.

Mathew Barzal

DraftKings: $5,800 | Fanduel: $6,900

Barzal has been fairly quiet with just one assist in the team’s last three games. Look for that to change against the Devils today. In four games against the Devils this season, Barzal has four points (1 goal, 3 assists).

He won’t have Anders Lee by his side but it’s going to be up to him to continue to drive the offense.

Oliver Wahlstrom

DraftKings: $3,400 | Fanduel: $3,800

I’m back on the Oliver Wahlstrom train. Yes, he’s been a little quiet with just one point in his last five games but I think he’ll break out of it. For someone who shoots as much as he does to have just two in his last three games seems like an outlier.

That should course-correct for him very soon and I want to be on the right side of history when that happens.
