Vegas Golden Knights DFS Spin

Marc-Andre Fleury allowed three goals on just 13 shots in Monday's 4-2 home loss against the Minnesota Wild in Game 4. Fleury was staked to an early 1-0 lead when captain Mark Stone scored at 8:14 of the first period. However, Kirill Kaprizov responded with his first-career NHL playoff goal at 9:06 of the first, while Zach Parise and Jordan Greenway also beat Fleury to give the Wild a 3-1 lead after 20 minutes. Fleury and the Golden Knights still have two more chances to close out the Wild, with the first opportunity Wednesday night back in St. Paul for Game 6.

Minnesota Wild DFS Spin

Cam Talbot allowed just two goals on 40 shots in Monday's 4-2 road win against the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 5. The Wild entered down 3-1 in the series, but they live to see another day, with the series shifting back to St. Paul for Game 6 on Wednesday night. It was the first win for Talbot and the Wild since a 1-0 victory in overtime in Game 1 at T-Mobile Arena, and they're actually 2-1 in three games in Las Vegas, while going 0-2 in two contests at home. Talbot was the beneficiary of four goals of support after receiving four total goals of help in the first four games.
