Hertl has 12 goals in his past 12 games along with six assists and 40 shots on target. He has two hat tricks over that span, including one on Saturday against Philadelphia when he was credited with seven shots. Hertl has been held off the scoresheet once during that 12-game stretch.

Anthony Duclair (Florida) - W - $5,900 (FanDuel), $4,700 (DraftKings), $19 (Yahoo)

Duclair has had a productive year and he has been red hot since the Panthers returned from the holiday break, while generating five goals and eight points in six outings. He also has 16 shots on target during that time. Duclair also offers some stack upside alongside Jonathan Huberdeau.

Juuse Saros (Nashville) - $8,000 (FanDuel), $7,200 (DraftKings), $37 (Yahoo)

Saros does not have an easy matchup against Colorado, but he has already beaten them before this year and this will be the sixth game in 10 days for the Avalanche. It is also Colorado’s third match in four nights following a win over Seattle on Monday. The Predators, and a red hot Saros, could take advantage of that. He has won his past four starts, while stopping 162 of 169 shots for a .959 save percentage. Saros has held the opposition to two goals or fewer in each of those matches.
