St. Louis Blues DFS Spin
Jordan Binnington allowed two goals on 29 shots in Wednesday's road victory against the Anaheim Ducks. Yes, the Blues won last time out in Binnington's start Saturday in San Jose, but it was actually Ville Husso coming on in relief to earn that win, not Binnington. He coughed up four goals on 19 shots before getting pulled in the middle of the second period. He hadn't won since an OT victory over the Sharks on Feb. 18, a span of four straight winless appearances.
Los Angeles Kings DFS Spin
The Los Angeles Kings will start Jonathan Quick on Wednesday night against the Arizona Coyotes. Quick will be looking to get back on track after the Minnesota Wild ended his three-game winning streak on Friday night. The veteran goaltender will come into tonight's game with a 5-3-2 record, a 2.85 goals-against-average and a .903 save percentage. He's slowly but surely working his way into more and more fantasy lineups.
Blues vs. Kings Prediction
The Blues have won four of the last five meetings with the Kings in Los Angeles while the road team in this series has been profitable at 4-1 in the last five meetings.

The Kings are also just 1-5 in their last six games after scoring two goals or less in their previous contest.
