New York Rangers DFS Spin

Igor Shesterkin saved 35 of 37 shots in a 2-1 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday. Shesterkin saw his three-game winning streak come to an end, but he certainly can't be blamed for this loss. Nevertheless, his record has dropped to 7-8-1 this season.

Washington Capitals DFS Spin

Ilya Samsonov turned aside all 24 shots that he faced in Friday's 4-0 win over the New Jersey Devils. Samsonov's biggest test came in the second period when Jack Hughes teed up Jesper Boqvist for what looked like a sure goal, but the goaltender made a beautiful cross-crease save to preserve his shutout. After getting the game off last night in favour of Vitek Vanecek, Samsonov played an inspired game and was an impenetrable wall and picked up his first shutout of the season for his efforts. The 24-year-old goaltender owns a 7-1-1 record with a 2.22 goals-against average and .917 save percentage.

Rangers vs. Capitals NHL Prediction

The under is also 8-1-2 in the Rangers’ last 11 games on the road when they’re an underdog and is 5-1-2 in their last eight road games overall. The under is also 4-1-1 in the Capitals’ last six games overall and is 4-0-1 in their last five games coming off a win.
