Value Line Stacks
Garland - Stepan - Keller
Vrana - Backstrom - Oshie
Carey Price (MTL) - As Price goes, the Canadiens go and he was dominant in the qualifying series against Pittsburgh. We've seen it time and time again in the playoffs if you can get a hot goaltender you have a very good chance to go far and that's what the Habs have right now.
Jordan Binnington (STL) - Much like most of the other teams during the round-robin, St. Louis basically sleepwalked through three games and Binnington was not good. Plain and simple. I expect him and the Blues to be much better as they've clearly been battle-tested while the younger Canucks might not be quite ready.
Semyon Varlamov (NYI) - I like the Isles chances to hang with Washington and potentially upset them in this series. A lot of that will depend on the opening contest here tonight and Varlamov at $7200 brings some solid value.
