Sam ReinhartFLA (vs DET) – Reinhart is having a below-expectation season with the Florida Panthers (51 points in 69 games), but he is currently on a good streak with six points in his last four games, after being shut out in six straight games. During his good streak, Reinhart found the back of the net five times on 16 shots, an unsustainable 31.3 shooting percentage. Still, if Reinhart were to be a little less lucky in terms of goals, he should be helped by the fact that the offense around him is working at full throttle. The Panthers are tied for fourth in the NHL in goalscoring average (4.00) since the start of March. The Detroit Red Wings, opponents of the Panthers on Monday, allowed the Colorado Avalanche five goals in a 5-1 loss on Saturday.

Alex ChiassonIT (vs FLA) – Chiasson made his debut for the Red Wings on March 4, and things have been going well for him since. In his last five meetings, the Quebecer is the second best scorer for the Red Wings, behind Dylan Larkin (6), with five points (three goals, two assists). Chiasson isn’t used much (10:56 on average per game), but he’s used on the first wave of the power play, where he’s had a lot of success. Four of his five points with the Red Wings have come in that facet of the game, and the Red Wings are set to face the Panthers, who have the NHL’s sixth-worst scoring shortfall this season (74.2 for hundred). Chiasson has only been claimed in five percent of the leagues on Fantrax.
Rasmus AnderssonCGY (vs LAK) – Andersson had a goal and two assists, along with five shots, in the Calgary Flames’ loss to the Dallas Stars on Saturday. He managed two consecutive games by more than one point and will try to blacken the score sheet in a fifth game in a row (two goals, six assists, two assists on the power play and 13 shots). Andersson has two assists in two games against the Los Angeles Kings this season.

Jack CampbellEDM (vs SJS) – Campbell represents a good option not for his recent individual performances, but because of the team he faces. The San Jose Sharks have lost their last six games (0-4-2) and 11 of their most recent 12 meetings (1-8-3). During that streak, they allowed 4.58 goals per game on average, tied for last in the NHL with the Columbus Blue Jackets. It’s a safe bet that Campbell will therefore have the offensive support necessary to sign the victory, especially since the Edmonton Oilers have scored 20 goals in their last four games.
