Pittsburgh Penguins DFS Spin

The Pittsburgh Penguins have placed Evgeni Malkin in COVID protocol. Malkin missed the start of the season recovering from off-season knee surgery and made his return to the lineup on Jan. 11, scoring twice and adding an assist. Overall, he has five goals and 13 points in 12 games. If he only needs the minimum five days in protocol, Malkin will miss only two games and could play as early as Sunday.

Boston Bruins DFS Spin

Jeremy Swayman will be in the crease on Tuesday against Pittsburgh. Swayman was back on the ice for Monday's practice following a stint with Providence of the AHL during the NHL All-Star break. He will likely share the crease with Linus Ullmark while Tuukka Rask is on the sidelines with a lower-body injury. Swayman has a record of 8-6-2 this year with a 2.31 GAA and .916 SV% in 17 appearances.
