New York Islanders v Ottawa Senators

In this section, I break down the top three fantasy hockey performers every night and cite why I chose them in particular. In addition, I will track the amount of times the players have received this honor and tally them at the end of the season.

Only four games and eight teams in action following an exciting night in hockey.  Of the four games, it was the first contest which we derived all of our stars for the night.  Here are our standout fantasy stars for the evening:
