Chicago Blackhawks DFS Spin
Malcolm Subban allowed three goals on 31 shots in Sunday's 3-2 home loss against the Nashville Predators. Subban was dinged for two goals in the first period by Viktor Arvidsson and Calle Jarnkrok in the first period, and it looked like it might be a long night. However, he settled down and the offense even tied the game with Alex DeBrincat lighting the lamp twice in the third period to tie it up 2-2. However, Roman Josi beat him late in the third to saddle him for the loss. The Blackhawks welcome the Carolina Hurricanes to town Tuesday, and it's a good bet Kevin Lankinen is in the crease for that one.
