Boston Bruins DFS SPIN
Jeremy Swayman made 20 saves in a 5-2 win over Montreal on Saturday. Juraj Slafkovsky and Johnny Kovacevic were the only Habs to beat him. The former scored from the bumper, and the latter followed his own shot and somehow pushed it through Swayman on the rebound. The 24-year-old from Anchorage is now 7-0-1 with a 1.73 GAA and .941 save percentage. He and Linus Ullmark form the best tandem in the NHL. Swayman is an auto-start regardless of opponent whenever he’s in the blue paint.
Tampa Bay Lightning DFS SPIN
Jonas Johansson made 39 saves Saturday in a 6-4 win over the Oilers. The Oilers got to Johansson early with two snipes in the first 8:31, including a shorthanded tally. He settled into a groove afterward in a see-saw affair before giving up a goal to Evan Bouchard at 8:04 of the third that pushed Edmonton into the lead. From there, Johansson’s teammates took over with three unanswered goals to seal the win. It’s the fourth time this season that he’s faced 40 or more shots, but just the first time he’s earned the win. Johansson continues to hold the blue paint while waiting for Andrei Vasilevskiy (back) to return later this month. Use caution with Johansson even though he has posted two straight victories. If fantasy managers aren’t careful, his 3.40 GAA and .896 save percentage can help sink your week.
