The Islanders improved their win streak up to eight games with their comeback win over the New Jersey Devils last night. It’s a quick turnaround, as they’re set for puck drop today at 5:00 pm just 22 hours later.
It was a look into the future last night with Oliver Wahlstrom and Kieffer Bellows as the goal scorers for the Isles. Can they do it again or was last night just a one-time deal for those kids taking over a game?
Here are three players to keep an eye on today in daily fantasy:
DraftKings: $5,200 | Fanduel: $5,700
Last night, Eberle was excellent for New York picking up a couple of assists and five shots on goal. In his last four games, Eberle has 13 shots on goal but doesn’t have a goal. With that kind of volume, you’d have to imagine he starts converting.
It’s been five games without a goal for Eberle, as he sits on nine on the season. I think he hits double digits today.
DraftKings: $5,100 | Fanduel: $4,900
Ryan Pulock is arguably playing the best hockey of his career and he somehow still doesn’t have a goal. It’s remarkable, but there’s no way that it lasts forever right? Both he and Adam Pelech have been excellent this year as the team’s top pair.
I’m back on the Pulock train, he gets his first of the season today (maybe).
DraftKings: $4,000 | Fanduel: $4,300
In Anthony Beauvillier’s last five games he doesn’t have a goal but he has 19 shots on goal over that time. He, like Eberle, is getting a high volume of shots and you’d have to imagine they’re going to start to be converted.

In 19 games, Anthony Beauvillier only has two goals on the season. In a contract year, albeit as a pending RFA, he’d like that production to come up.
