It was a great Tuesday in DFS action all 3 stars featured in Tuesday’s piece picked up points and both stack options scored a handful of goals. Thursday night has a legit 7 game DFS slate, with a battle of two heavy weights in LA as Tampa heads out west to take on the Kings.
Here is a breakdown of some players and teams to target in tonight DFS action.
Patrick Kane ($7500), Chicago Blackhawks – After a lack of scoring Blackhawks will pair Kane an Toews with Patrick Sharp on a potent line against the host Philadelphia Flyers on tonight. Kane has flustered the Flyers throughout his career, recording 14 points (four goals, 10 assists) in 12 career regular season encounters.
Max Pacioretty ($6500), Montreal Canadiens – Montreal captain Max Pacioretty has been hot of late, collecting four goals and four assists during the six game point streak he carries into tonight’s contest with Minnesota. The Wild are just 2-4-1 away from home. The Captain scores, The Canadians roll.
Johnny Gaudreau ($7400), Calgary Flames – Johnny hockey is averaging a point per game to go along with a five game point streak. The Flames take on the Red Wings who rank at the bottom of the league between the pipes.
Teams to Stack
St Louis Blues – The Blues have won two straight and are 8-1-1 in their last 10 while the Coyotes answered winning just their second game of the season by dropping the first two contests of their three game road trip. Im going cheap tonight and focusing on the Blues 2nd line that consists of Steen-Sobotka-Stastny. Alexander Steen ($5100) has 8 shots in his last 3 games. Center Paul Stastny ($5300) is a proven play maker and I like his chances to find the score sheet, and Vladimir Sobotka ($4100) has 6 points in his last 10.
Edmonton Oilers – New Jersey’s current 3 game slide began with a 6-3 loss at Edmonton on Friday, which marked the highest goal output of the season for the Oilers. Tonight Edmonton look to push around the Devils again. Center Leon Draisaitl ($7200) has accumulated eight points in seven games. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins ($4900) has 7 points in 10 games. Milan Lucic ($4400) has 9 hits in his last 5 games with 7 shots, he also is getting top power play minutes boasting his solid fantasy upside.
Goalie of the night
Charlie Lindgren ($7800) Montreal Canadiens – The rookie made 29 saves against the Golden Knights Tuesday to continue the strong start to his NHL career. The 23-year-old native of Minnesota has won each of his two starts this season in place of the injured Carey Price (lower body) improving his career total to a 5-0-0 record, making him the first Canadiens rookie goaltender to accomplish the feat since Wayne Thomas did it in 1972-73.
