Pepsi7's NHL Core Plays: Monday, February 5th

Each day, one of our NHL experts will be providing recommended player picks for your daily fantasy hockey lineups. The goal is to help you build the optimal cash game (50/50s/double-ups/head-to-head) lineup.

Monday, February 5th

It is time to kick off another week in the National Hockey League, and we do so with four games on this Monday evening. The Dallas Stars, Toronto Maple Leafs, Nashville Predators and the Tampa Bay Lightning are tonight’s favorites, and none of the eight teams in action are playing on consecutive nights.

GOALTENDER

NOTE: Make sure to check the RotoGrinders Starting Goalies Page page prior to game time, to confirm that the goalies listed below are starting.

Ben Bishop, Dallas Stars – It seems we have yet another night where I am not in love with any goaltender for cash games. With that being said, I plan on rolling with Ben Bishop. The Dallas Stars are the only big favorite tonight on this short-slate, and I think we see them handle the New York Rangers tonight on home ice. Bishop can be a tough goalie to trust, and he is unlikely to see a ton of shots, but he has done his best work at the American Airlines Center (2.10 GAA, .937 SV%), and he is our safest bet for a win this evening.
