Boston Bruins DFS Spin

David Pastrnak picked up an assist in his seasonal debut Saturday. Pastrnak missed the first two weeks of the season after undergoing off-season right hip arthroscopy as well as surgery to repair a torn labral in mid-September. He was scheduled to return in mid-February but was able to come back a couple of weeks early. He had five shots on goal and is a must-start in your fantasy pool. Get him in the lineup ASAP.

Washington Capitals DFS Spin

Alex Ovechkin scored the game-winning goal in overtime Saturday against the Boston Bruins. Ovie was making his first appearance since Jan. 14 after spending time on the COVID list, and he was originally listed as a game-time decision for this one. The goal was just his second of the season, with assists to John Carlson and Nicklas Backstrom, just 28 seconds into overtime. The Russian superstar always has a flare for the dramatic. That's two goals and six points through five games. He'll try to make up for lost time when the teams reconvene on Monday night in the second end of the doubleheader.

Bruins vs. Capitals Prediction

The home team in this series is a perfect 4-0 in the last four meetings, while the Bruins are just 7-20 in their last 27 trips to Washington. The Bruins are also 15-37 in their last 52 games versus the Capitals, are 1-5 in their last six road games and are 2-5 in their last seven games playing on one day of rest. The Caps, meanwhile, are 4-1 in their last five games overall, are 4-1 in their last five games as an underdog and hare 4-1 in their last five home games.
