Daily Fantasy Hockey DFS Value Update – April 3

Claude Giroux

New York Rangers at Colorado Avalanche

The Rangers have won seven of their last eight games and have done so in convincing fashion: The team has scored 31 goals over that stretch and allowed just 14 against (with two shutouts). It has been a relatively easy stretch of schedule for them, but there are wins against Phoenix, Philadelphia and Columbus in there so they haven’t all been punching bags. Martin St. Louis also got off his goalless streak with a goal in their last game. When it rains, it pours I guess.

Colorado has won four straight games and they are still without Matt Duchene, so it’s fairly impressive what they have been able to do. Their last four games have largely been a result of goalie Semyon Varlamov, who has posted a .928 save percentage in this stretch. Tyson Barrie has become the main fixture on the top power play unit for the Avalanche and that provides a bit of a boost for a player that otherwise wouldn’t have much.

This screams of a close game to me. I don’t think it gets much higher than 3-2 so I would avoid stacking either side in GPPs. Again, I would just pick a player or two for 50/50 or heads-up matches and just leave the goalies alone.
