After a long three day break, the New York Islanders are back in action tonight. They have a back-to-back set in Boston, who the Islanders are 5-0 against right now. Each team looks slightly different from the last time they met on March 25.
The Islanders acquired Kyle Palmieri, Travis Zajac, and Braydon Coburn before the deadline while the Bruins got Taylor Hall from the Sabres to improve their top-six.
Here are three players you should be looking for tonight in daily fantasy for the Isles:
DraftKings: $3,700 | Fanduel: $3,800
Not only did JG Pageau score in the Islanders last game but he absolutely owns the Bruins this year. He has eight points including five goals in the five games. Talk about domination from Pageau.
Before Sunday’s game, he was quiet but with a more stable third line now expect him to continue his hot streak. He’ll pot one in the net tonight.
DraftKings: $2,900 | Fanduel: $3,200
Since making his return to the lineup, Oliver Wahlstrom has been quiet. Too quiet. I’m looking to stack Wahlstrom with Pageau so we can double up with the two on the third line together. Also, with Wahlstrom being from the Boston area I’d anticipate a motivated player.
He picked up a goal in his last time the team was in Boston in a 4-3 Isles win.
DraftKings: $3,300 | Fanduel: $3,700
Assist king Nick Leddy is back in players to watch. He’s tied for the lead in assists with 24 on the team. He only has one goal on the season and he hasn’t had a point in five straight but expect that to change.
Against Boston this year, he has two two-point games. So I’m banking on a big Nick Leddy tonight on the blue line.
