If theYou can win both your games and the tournament this weekend If the Leafs lose one of their games, they are guaranteed to be in the playoffs regardless of what happens next week. What does that mean? Keeps resting his injury. Does Why not try both?
As all the details of the playoff picture become more complex, it's hard to make adjustments for each scenario.

Notes to the Team
Seattle Kraken: There are some hints that the, And Top line: They're getting lucky after four games (Corsi percentage at 38 percent, they've scored three goals within 44 minutes), but the Kraken still have three games next week.

: I don't know how to interpret this mess at the Knights' crease. However, the team will continue to fight tooth and nail to get back in the playoff picture next week. The removing of starters After one period of a tied match, this is precisely the type of shenanigans which won't help fantasy hockey teams down the stretch. This offense will be under tremendous pressure to produce. The Knights face the Blackhawks (Stars), and Blues (Blues) in three games that could all be important. The Knights cannot afford to lose with the Stars and Predators each getting a freebie against the Coyotes next week.
The line combinations are messy and the stars are all falling apart. But, I will have., And This opportunity is available to me in every lineup. And These are the most likely options to be available in your league. However, I am not able to predict which line combination will get used and stick.

Carolina Hurricanes, c. Staal seemed to have saved all of his fantasy goodness for those last few weeks. He's averaging a solid 2.8 FPPG in the last three weeks, despite his low season average of 1.4 FPPG (well beyond fantasy consideration). His line with And With 33 goals at 5-on-5, he is a stealthy fifth-best NHL player. MoneyPuck.com ranks him fifth for goals percentage on lines with at least 200 minutes.
Carolina Hurricanes, G: With Raanta looks like he will be available until the postseason.
