Daily Fantasy Hockey DFS Value Update – February 7

New York Rangers at Pittsburgh Penguins

Both teams are playing their last game before the break and the Rangers are on a back-to-back following their loss to Edmonton last night. It’s pretty likely they were looking past Edmonton as A) they looked like hot garbage in parts of that game and B) they gave Cam Talbot the start last night over Henrik Lundqvist. Those are two good indicators that the Rangers didn’t have their head in the game last night at all. Of course, the problem is now that they’re on the road going into the barn of the best home team in the NHL.

Pittsburgh looked like they were on cruise control for the majority of their game against Buffalo and still managed a 5-1 win. This team is 6-3 in their last 10 games but have had their way with teams at home: Pittsburgh has one loss (of any kind) at home in the last 12 weeks (amazingly, it’s to Florida). The Pittsburgh penalty kill keeps rolling along just fine and the power play seems to have picked things up over the last few games (4-for-12 in their last four contests).

These two teams have met twice this year with the Penguins winning 5-2 in Pittsburgh at the start of January and the Rangers winning 5-1 in New York back in November.

I would expect this game to be close for most of it but I do think you’ll get one of Pittsburgh’s best games tonight. Whether the Rangers were looking past the Oilers or not last night, they’re going into a lion’s den tonight. I wouldn’t stream the Penguins at will, but there should be enough goals to make a lot of their skaters viable.
