Edmonton Oilers DFS Spin

Connor McDavid did not record a point in Sunday's 7-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild. McDavid did win 13 face-offs in the contest -- tops for the game -- but his three shots on-goal failed to hit their mark. Edmonton needed a monster offensive game to have a chance, here, as their netminding (Mike Smith, Mikko Koskinen) was nothing short of embarrassing on Sunday. As if it needs to be said, McDavid remains a megastar for fantasy and real-life purposes, having amassed a stately 26 goals and 71 points across 49 games played.

Tampa Bay Lightning DFS Spin

Victor Hedman scored a goal and assisted on another in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the New Jersey Devils. Hedman had two huge moments on Tuesday evening. First up, he collected an assist on Alex Killorn's game-tying goal with under five minutes remaining in the second period. His next trick would be even more impressive, as Hedman would score the go-ahead goal himself about seven minutes into the third period. Across 49 games played this season, Hedman has now pitched in for 11 goals and 50 total points.

On the other side, the under is 4-0 in the Lightning’s last four games as a home favorite, is 15-6-2 in their last 23 games after scoring five goals or more in their previous game and is 13-6 in their last 19 games playing on three or more days of rest.
