Montreal Canadiens DFS Spin

Jake Allen allowed three goals on 25 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 road win against the Edmonton Oilers. Allen improved to 8-8-4 after the road victory, but it wasn't easy. The Canadiens built a 4-1 lead, but the Oilers stormed back with a power-play goal from Ryan Nugent-Hopkins at 17:48 of the third period and 18:49 from Jesse Puljujarvi to make things interesting. The Oilers weren't able to come back all the way, but it was close.

Calgary Flames DFS Spin

Matthew Tkachuk has no goals and two assists in his last seven games. Tkachuk's slump has come at an inopportune time as the Flames are desperately trying to stay in the playoff race. They're getting ready for a key three-game series against Montreal, which will start on Friday. Having Tkachuk step up for that series would go a long way towards keeping Calgary's playoff hopes alive.
