This article is part of our Crashing the Crease series.
We wrap up the final weekend of April, and the first weekend of the second round of the NHL playoffs, with two more games. The first one starts at 3:00 PM ET, so you'll have to get your daily fantasy lineup in early. Here are some players to target, as well as avoid.
GOALIE TO TARGET
Petr Mrazek, CAR at NYI ($30): The first game of this series was an 1-0 overtime affair, and that isn't surprising given these two teams. Mrazek has been playing some great hockey for a while, as he has an 1.96 GAA and .930 save percentage over his last 25 outings. The Islanders only averaged 28.8 shots on net per contest, so Mrazek may not be too busy either.
GOALIE TO AVOID
Philipp Grubauer, COL at SAN ($33): Grubauer was great down the stretch, but on the season he had a .917 save percentage. He allowed four goals in the first game of this series, and that could be about how tough this matchup is. The Sharks scored 3.61 goals per contest at home this season.
CENTER TO TARGET
Tomas Hertl, SAN vs. COL ($25): Hertl has been tearing it up in the playoffs. Through eight games he has six goals on 32 shots. If you stretch back into the regular season, he has 18 points in his last 15 contests. Philipp Grubauer had a good season, but he has a 2.67 GAA on the road including the playoffs. That's not bad,
