Los Angeles Kings DFS SPIN
Anze Kopitar scored two goals, one on the power play, in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flyers. Both tallies came a little over two minutes apart in the first period, one on a wicked one-timer from the high slot and the other basically a tap-in after Adrian Kempe had circled the net and left Carter Hart well out of position. Kopitar has shaken off his Christmas blues with an impressive January, piling up four goals and 10 points in 10 games on the month, and the 35-year-old remains one of the most dangerous players in a Kings uniform.
Florida Panthers DFS SPIN
Sergei Bobrovsky (lower body) is still undergoing evaluation and a decision on his status for Friday's matchup with LA won't be made until after morning skate, Katie Engleson of Bally Sports Florida reports. Bobrovsky has missed the last three contests with a lower-body injury, but it sounds like there's a chance he'll be ready to return against the Kings. Check back for another update on the 34-year-old netminder's status following Friday's morning practice.
