St. Louis Blues DFS Spin
Jordan Binnington got pulled during Saturday's 7-6 win over the San Jose Sharks. Binnington posted an ice time of 30:34 before his night ended. He got pulled from the game after allowing four goals on 19 shots. He picked up a save percentage of .789 in this matchup, which is his worst single-game save percentage of the year. Binnington has been having a rather inconsistent season so far, thus he is a fantasy risk since his level of play varies from game to game. Prior to this game, he had lost three consecutive games. This is also the fifth game this year, in which he has allowed four or more goals. Binnington really needs to find some stability in his game if he wishes to be so someone the Blues can rely on.
Anaheim Ducks DFS Spin
John Gibson allowed three goals in Saturday's 3-2 OT loss to the Vegas Golden Knights. Gibson made 24 saves on 27 shots and finished the night with a .889 save percentage. After having a phenomenal start to the year, Gibson's pace has undoubtedly slowed down as of late. Including tonight, Gibson has gone his past five consecutive games without a win. During this losing streak, Gibson has failed to post a save percentage above .900 even once. The only positive is that at least Gibson and the Ducks come out of this matchup with a point. His season record now sits at 5-8-4.
