Islanders tab Jean-Francois Berube to start in goal

New York Islanders goalie Jean-Francois Berube will be in the crease for Wednesday's home game against the Ottawa Senators.

What It Means:

In his last start, Berube stood on his head on March 15, stopping 33 of 34 shots in the Islanders’ shootout loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. It was an exceptional outing for Berube, who is now 1-1-1 with a 2.52 goals against average and .924 save percentage in three starts this season. Tonight, he will take on a Senators team which is on the tail-end of a back-to-back set and has lost five of their last eight games.

We project Berube to allow 2.53 goals on 26.85 shots with a 60 percent chance of getting the win. He is our second-ranked netminder for a light two-game slate. With a price tag of just $6,500 on FanDuel, he's our top value play of the night by a significant margin.
