Recommended Starting Goalies for Daily Fantasy Hockey Tonight:
Plenty of action to choose from tonight as you prepare for the final $300 game of the regular season on Draftstreet tonight. Here are some good options in net:
1. NAS vs COB - The Preds are rising fast in the West, with 8 wins in their last 10 games. They face a depleted Columbus roster with nothing to play for. Expect Rinne in net (not confirmed)
2. CAR vs ATL - The Thrashers did Carolina a favor last night, but don't expect The Canes to be kind in return tonight. Carolina has won 7 of 10 and can close in on a playoff spot with a win tonight. Expect Ward in net.
3. DAL vs COL - The Stars must win to stay alive. They couldn't ask for a better opponent, as the Avs have shown no signs of life for months now. Look for Lehtonen in the cage.
