New York Rangers DFS Spin

Alexandar Georgiev allowed three goals on 34 shots in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Washington Capitals. The Rangers clearly didn't have hockey on their mind tonight. They were more concerned about getting revenge for injured teammate Artemi Panarin, who was pounced on by Caps forward Tom Wilson on Monday. This was a meaningless game for the Rangers because they werealready eliminated from playoff contention, but it still shouldn't have been this ugly. This is what happens when the NHL doesn't hand out the appropriate amount of discipline to players who injure other players. Georgiev has dropped back-to-back games to the Caps. He has an 8-7-2 record with a 2.71 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage this season.

Boston Bruins DFS Spin

David Pastrnak registered a pair of assists in Tuesday's 4-3 OT loss to the New Jersey Devils. Pastrnak picked up the primary helper on Patrice Bergeron's power-play goal (1-1) and he also notched the first assist on Sean Kuraly's go-ahead goal (3-2) midway through the third frame. The 24-year-old had been going through a bit of a quiet stretch, as he had just two points in his previous six games. He finished this game with a minus-2 rating, two penalty minutes and one shot on net in18:38 of ice time. Pastrnak now has 19 goals and 26 assists in 44 games in 2021.
