DraftKings picks: Good matchup for Flyers' Couturier

Philadelphia center leads value targets

by David Satriano @davidsatriano / Fantasy Staff Writer

Sean Couturier, C, Philadelphia Flyers ($4,400)

The Flyers, who solidified the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference and will host the Washington Capitals in the first round, play the rival New York Islanders in their regular-season finale. Couturier has seven points in the past 10 games and 39 points this season. His price tag -- $3,200 cheaper than the most expensive center, John Tavares -- makes him a good option. Couturier has 19 points in 30 road games this season and three points (a goal and two assists) in four games against the Islanders. He has 13 points in 22 career games against them.

Andrew Cogliano, W, Anaheim Ducks ($3,400)

There aren't many options Sunday, especially not knowing which players will be rested prior to the playoffs, but Cogliano will be in for the Ducks. Cogliano had two assists in a 5-3 win against the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday, and four shots on goal. He has seven points in his past 10 games and is averaging 1.9 points per contest this season, including 2.6 in his past 10 games. Minus Ryan Kesler, David Perron, Brandon Pirri and Rickard Rakell up front, Cogliano could be in line for a big game against the Washington Capitals.

Hampus Lindholm, D, Anaheim Ducks ($4,300)

The Ducks have everything to play for Sunday -- a win clinches the Pacific Division title -- while the Capitals have nothing on the line. That being said, Anaheim should come out strong, and Lindholm is a prime candidate for a big game. He is averaging 2.5 points per contest. Despite one goal and three points in his last 10 games, Lindholm has 114 blocks and 148 SOG, so he's good for a few points a day. Minus Sami Vatanen on defense, Lindholm will be relied upon more offensively and defensively.

Michal Neuvirth, G, Philadelphia Flyers ($7,700)

Neuvirth hasn't played since March 16 because of a knee injury but he is the sixth-ranked goalie on a two-game day. Steve Mason ($7,900) has made 12 straight starts and started 17 of 18, but will likely get a breather against the Islanders on the season's final day. Neuvirth is averaging 5.1 points per contest and has allowed two goals or fewer in six of his past 10 appearances. He is 17-8-4 with a 2.28 goals-against average and .925 save percentage and rarely has an off night.
