Top Two Skaters

My two favorite skaters on the slate.

Ryan O'Reilly (STL)

O'Reilly draws a solid matchup against the Rangers who legitimately look as if they've quit on the season. The Rangers have allowed the seventh-most fantasy points per game to centers over the past four weeks and O'Reilly, who has points in back to back games has recorded four points in his last five games against the Rangers. Expect ROR to use his strength and net-front presence to give the Rangers fits tonight.

Nathan MacKinnon (COL)

MacKinnon is the only real bright spot for the Avs right now as they've fallen apart due to poor play and injuries to some key skaters. Mac has five points in his last three games against the Coyotes and over his last four games has a goal, two assists, and 22 shots. As the Avs play out the string look for MacKinnon to continue padding his stats against the Coyotes who allowed nine goals in two games to Colorado this season.
