San Jose Sharks DFS SPIN
Mackenzie Blackwood made 34 saves in Thursday’s 3-0 loss to Boston. The former Devil played well and kept the Bruins off the board until the second period, but once Danton Heinen took advantage of a San Jose giveaway early in the frame to wire a one-timer past Blackwood, the game was effectively over. The 26-year-old netminder has just one win in his last seven appearances, going 1-4-1, but his 3.00 GAA and .909 save percentage are respectable given the quality of the Sharks lineup in front of him.
New Jersey Devils DFS SPIN
Coach Lindy Ruff said that Meier (lower body) has a chance to play Friday versus San Jose, Max Miller of The Hockey News reports. Timo Meier has missed the last seven games, but he really wants to play Friday versus his ex-teammates from San Jose, as this will be his first opportunity to do so. Meier was dealt in late February and managed nine goals and 14 points in 21 games with the Devils in 2022-23 and has five goals and six assists in 14 games this season. Meier will likely be a game-time decision, so check closer to puck drop to see his status.
