Montreal Canadiens versus Minnesota Wilds NHL Fantasy Preview 12-22-2015
The Montreal Canadiens continue their holiday road trip with a matchup against the Minnesota Wilds. NHL draft managers can tune to NBCSN on Tuesday December 22nd at 8PM Eastern Time to track the results of their daily fantasy draft picks.
The Wild are on a two game skid. They allowed 6 goals in yesterday’s game against offensive powerhouse Dallas Stars. But they hold the 4th place in the Central Division with an overall record of 17-9-6 for 40 total points. They are one of the better defensive unit allowing 2.35 goals per game, ranking them 2nd in the Western Conference.
The Habs have been struggling in the past 2 week, losing 8 of their last 9 games. Despite that, they still hold 1st place in the Atlantic Division, with a record of 20-12-3 for a total of 43 points. The original six team has given up 11 goals and scored 3 in their last 2 games.
This is the 2nd day of a back-to-back games for both teams. Each one are coming off a humiliating loss, so it comes as no surprise that a bounce back win is needed for either one of them.
Wilds Top DFS Performers
C Mikko Koivu
Koivu played his worst game yesterday, posting a minus-3 and no points. But how can we hold it against him, his entire team didn’t show the energy to compete. The captain will need to skip over that and get back on the tear he was before that game, with 9 points in 4 games.
G Darcy Kuemper
Kuemper has yet to lose a regulation game this season. He has a record of 3-0-4, with a 2.28 GAA and a .922 Save%.
LW Zach Parise
25 points in 29 career games against Montreal, for the American, is more than enough to select him in your cash draft contest tonight.

D P.K. Subban

Top 2 teams in the Pacific Division, Los Angeles Kings & San Jose Sharks, will clash on Tuesday night. DFS draft GMs can tune in to NBCSN at 10:30 PM Eastern Time to track down the scoring results from your roster fantasy picks.
The Kings are leading the Pacific Division, despite being the weakest division in the league. Los Angeles has a record of 20-10-2 with 42 points. They are coming off from an upset loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs, a score of 5-0. The 2014 Stanley Cup Champions lead the NHL in goal allowed with 2.2 per game. Their offense has been kind of quiet this season, netting 2.5 goals per game. With elite forwards like Jeff Carter, Anze Kopitar, Tyler Toffoli and Marian Gaborik on their payroll, it is just a matter of time before this team explodes.
The Sharks have lost 8 out of their last 10 games. They will be completing a 5 game away stand in L.A. tonight. San Jose was able to gain 5 out of the 8 possible points on this road trip. A win at Staples Center will put the cherry on top of the Sunday, and bring them closer to the Kings in the Pacific Division Standing. Darryl Sutter`s squad is 8 points behind (34 points), with 16 wins, 15 losses and 2 overtime losses.
