Hello hockey fans, we have a seven-game main slate today and I am here to share with you my favorite goalies, team stacks and value plays.
Wow, the goalie position is a tough one today so we have to dig a little deeper to find a couple of solid options. The Hawks’ rookie tender has been awesome in his last two games as he allowed only two goals to go along with a shutout against the Panthers and their ninth ranked offense. Today, the Predators and their 27th-ranked offense travel to Windy City and look for Lankinen to stay hot. Lock him and load him in all formats this evening.
This is a bad matchup for the best goalie in the league against the Canes and their eighth-ranked offense but great goalies almost always step up in tough situations. Vasilevskiy is 21-4-1 to go along with a superb 1.91 GAA and a stifling .932 save %. Tonight is a great opportunity to get the Russian tender at lower ownership than normal and he could help you take down a GPP tournament.
Teams to Target
Toronto Maple Leafs
The Leafs are ranked fifth in offense, the Oilers are ranked 17th in defense, and the total is currently at 6.5 goals. There should be fireworks in this game with the two best players in the world facing off against each other.
Superstar Auston Matthews has 21 goals and 16 assists through 30 games and averages four shots per game. His partner in crime, Mitchell Marner has 41 points in 33 games and Wayne Simmonds completes the top line for the Leafs.
The Coyotes just scored five goals against the Sharks and their 28th-ranked defense and they’ve now scored 16 in their last four games. Phil Kessel is way too cheap on DraftKings and he has two goals, an assist, and five shots in his last two games. His line-mate Clayton Keller has two assists and five shots in his last two and Johan Larsson completes the top line.
One-off Value Plays
This young winger is making waves around the league and he has a goal, three assists, and 12 shots in his last three games. Robertson feels like an automatic play at these prices as he plays on the top line and the top PP unit for the Stars.
The youngsters are taking over in this section and the point-man has an assist, three shots, and ten blocks in his last three games. With these cheap guys in our lineups, it allows us to load up on high-end players.
