Every Monday, theScore offers a weekly fantasy hockey column detailing a handful of moves you should make. This week's edition focuses on the championship round of the fantasy hockey playoffs. Ownership percentages and position eligibility are courtesy of Yahoo.

Scoop up Philipp Grubauer

Team: Avalanche
Position: G
Ownership: 31 percent

Grubauer's made a late-season charge to emerge as the Avalanche's undisputed No. 1 goalie. Across his last six games, he's posted three shutouts and a jaw-dropping .971 save percentage. Meanwhile, fellow netminder Semyon Varlamov owns an .899 save percentage over his last six starts.

Grubauer has started three of Colorado's last four games, and with four contests on the schedule this week, he'll likely make at least three appearances. The Avalanche are fighting for their playoff lives, and will almost certainly ride the hotter goalie down the stretch.

Add Jakub Vrana

Team: Capitals
Position: LW/RW
Ownership: 20 percent

The Capitals are the only team this week that'll partake in four games but not play on Thursday or Saturday - the busiest nights of the week.

That means you should have no problem getting Vrana - who's recorded a modest six points in his last 10 games - into your lineup four times. And if you're in a deeper league where Vrana's already been scooped up, turn to teammate Brett Connolly (4 percent owned), who has 10 points in his last 13 games.

Drop Sam Reinhart

Team: Sabres
Position: C/RW
Ownership: 62 percent

The Sabres have just one win in their last eight games, and they've been shut out three times during that span. The slump has unsurprisingly taken its toll on the top line - most notably Reinhart, who's posted only one point in his last eight games.

Meanwhile, Buffalo plays just twice this week, so the former second overall pick won't provide any more value in re-draft leagues this season.

Pick up Brendan Perlini

Team: Blackhawks
Position: LW/RW
Ownership: 13 percent

Dylan Strome has endeared himself to Blackhawks fans since arriving in the Windy City, but the forgotten piece from the November trade with Arizona is beginning to emerge as a dangerous offensive threat. Perlini's scored eight goals while adding two assists across his last seven games, and he's currently rounding out a potent trio alongside Strome and Alex DeBrincat.

Chicago plays four games this week, and if you're able to squeeze Perlini into your lineup on every occasion, he needs to be added in all formats.

Discard Chris Kreider

Team: Rangers
Position: LW
Ownership: 67 percent

Anyone on the Rangers not named Mika Zibanejad can be dropped this week, and that includes Kreider. The veteran winger has notched a measly two points in his last 10 outings, and the Blueshirts have just two games on the docket this week.
