Roslovic’s season has been really eventful. It started with him holding out on the Winnipeg Jets and that resulted in him getting traded to his hometown team in Columbus. Since joining the Jackets, he’s picked up four goals and five assists in nine games. The 24-year-old set a new career-high in goals and points with 12 and 29 in 2019-20 and he should be able to obliterate those numbers in a shortened season.
Kasperi Kapanen, PIT vs. WAS ($15): Kapanen has started 67.2 percent of his shifts in the offensive zone, second highest on the Penguins behind only his center Evgeni Malkin. While he only has six points, that's in 10 games. Meanwhile, the Capitals have a 3.77 GAA, which is bottom five in the NHL. While Ilya Samsonov is out of the COVID-19 protocols, he's currently down in AHL Hershey on a conditioning stint.

Babcock’s last head coaching job came with the Toronto Maple Leafs starting with the 2015-16 season and ending 23 games into the 2019-20 season when he was replaced by Sheldon Keefe.
Van Riemsdyk comes with a salary of $7 million per year, so if he’s producing a lot of offense, it shouldn’t surprise anybody, right? That’s not how this works. JVR served as a healthy scratch on a few occasions in the bubble last August. He scored a respectable 19 goals and 40 points in 66 games last year, but he’s come out of the gates flying in 2021. He already has seven goals and 18 points in 13 contests. Not too shabby. I don’t think anyone, including the Flyers, expected him to produce like this. Only Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and Patrick Kane have more points than JVR right now.

"Yeah they were great for us,” winger T.J. Oshie said. “Pretty good game a couple days ago as well, and that line contributing and winning every shift when they go out on the ice is big for our team. Those guys were horses tonight. Shears with his efforts and his strides. Richie over there is a thoroughbred and Lars is a horse and a moose coming through there in the middle.”
