DraftKings NHL: Game 6 Stanley Cup Picks
DraftKings NHL: Game 6 Stanley Cup Picks

This article is part of our DraftKings NHL series.

Game 6 between the Bruins and Blues will begin at 8:00 PM Eastern time. Read on to see which players stand out as FLEX options to target in what could be the last slate of the NHL season if Boston fails to force Game 7.

FLEX

Jordan Binnington, STL vs. BOS ($8,600): Binnington has been instrumental to the Blues' turnaround in this series, stopping 59 of 62 shots in Games 4 and 5 for a .952 save percentage. With a chance to clinch the Stanley Cup on home ice, Binnington just needs to befuddle the visiting Bruins one more time.

FLEX 

Torey Krug, BOS at STL ($8,400): Krug is the leading offensive producer from the blue line this postseason with 17 points in 22 games, on the heels of a regular season where he racked up 53 points in 64 appearances. His ice time climbed to 25:26 in Game 5 with Zdeno Chara playing at less than 100 percent. Krug should see similarly heavy usage in this one, putting the diminutive blueliner in position to rack up other counting stats in addition to any potential contributions on the scoresheet.

FLEX

Tuukka Rask, BOS at STL ($8,100): It makes sense to lock in both goalies in this slate, as this is likely to be a tight-checking affair in which goals come at a premium. Rask has been locked in all postseason with a 1.97 GAA and .937 save percentage, so he's likely to bring his A-game with his back against the wall. While the top skaters are far from guaranteed to score, the netminders are all but assured to lay down a solid base of saves.

FLEX 

Jaden Schwartz, STL vs. BOS ($7,600): Schwartz has gone cold recently, but he still leads all remaining players with 12 goals during the playoffs. Capable of massive outbursts, as evidenced by his pair of hat tricks this postseason, Schwartz could pay off in a big way for owners who choose to buy low on him here.

FLEX 

Charlie Coyle, BOS at STL ($7,000): Coyle had a three-game goal streak snapped in Game 5, but his terrific production this postseason suggests he could well get right back on the scoresheet in Game 6. Through 22 games this postseason, Coyle has nine goals, 16 points and a plus-6 rating. With St. Louis likely to deploy its top defensemen against Boston's top two lines, Coyle should continue thriving against weaker competition as Boston's third-line center while also benefiting from power-play time.

FLEX

David Perron, STL vs. BOS ($6,400): Between last year's run to the Stanley Cup Final with Vegas and this season's trip with the Blues, Perron has amassed plenty of big-game experience. He's been a key contributor in this run with seven goals and 14 points in 24 games, including the game-winner in Game 5. Available for cheaper than 12 other skaters and the goalies, Perron's a nice value pick given his offensive capabilities.
