NHL.com's fantasy staff will provide daily picks for DraftKings NHL games during the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs (until end of conference finals). This article includes expensive and value plays and should be used as a basis for your roster decision-making.

 

TOP CENTER: Mikael Backlund, CGY ($5,100)

The Calgary Flames are facing elimination in Game 4 against the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday (10 p.m. ET; USA, CBC, TVA Sports, PRIME), but Backlund has been a bright spot with 6.5 DraftKings points in Game 2 (one goal, five shots on goal) and 6.0 in Game 3 (two assists, one blocked shot, three SOG). He has 30 points (10 goals, 20 assists) in 42 home games during the regular season and Stanley Cup Playoffs combined, and seven points (three goals, four assists) in eight combined games against the Ducks this season. He had an NHL career-high 53 points (22 goals, 31 assists) in 81 regular-season games, and the Flames' offense won't go down without a fight if their four goals in Game 3 are any indication.

NHL.com's fantasy staff will provide daily picks for DraftKings NHL games during the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs (until end of conference finals). This article includes expensive and value plays and should be used as a basis for your roster decision-making.

 

TOP CENTER: Logan Couture, SJS ($5,500)

The San Jose Sharks offense has bounce-back potential after being shut out in each of the past two games, and Couture is available at a discount in a good spot. Couture's price has dipped after being held without a point in each of the first three games against the Edmonton Oilers, but he has plenty of experience in these spots having led the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs in points (30 in 24 games). He had his fifth regular season of at least 50 points and has 30 points in 38 home games in the regular season and playoffs combined.
