Pittsburgh Penguins DFS Spin

Sidney Crosby scored a goal and an assist during Monday's 6-1 win over the Seattle Kraken. The Penguins got three quick goals from Jeff Carter, Crosby and Danton Heinen in the first 5:07 of the game and they never looked back. The Pens captain helped set up Jake Guentzel’s tally in the second frame, which gave Pittsburgh a 4-1 advantage at the time. The 34-year-old now has four goals and nine assists in 13 games this season. He’s also riding a six-game point streak that has seen him put together three multi-point performances. Despite the fact that he’s entering his mid-30’s, Crosby is still clearly a special player.

Washington Capitals DFS Spin

Ilya Samsonov stopped 31-of-34 shots in Monday's 4-3 shootout win over the Anaheim Ducks. Despite allowing three goals on the first 19 shots of the game, Samsonov did not shoulder the blame for any of them as they were all scored because Capital defenders were sleeping at the wheel. The 24-year-old struggled in the shootout, allowing a couple of goals however his team bailed him out after Sonny Milano missed the net on his attempt. Samsonov owns a stellar 11-1-1 record with a 2.42 goals-against average and .916 save percentage.

Rangers vs. Bruins NHL Prediction

The over is 10-3 in the last 13 meetings between these two teams and is 5-2 in the last seven meetings in Washington.

On the other side, the over is 5-0 in the Capitals’ last five games versus a team with a losing record and is 5-1 in their last six games as a home favorite.
