The NHL gives us a massive s12 game slate Thursday night with several matchups with playoff positioning on the line.
Here are several top players and teams to stack to build a winning lineup in tonight’s action
Nikita Kucherov ($8000) Tampa Bay Lightning – The chalk play of the night, Kucherov leads the league with 42 points and 21 goals. Tampa takes on the Coyotes who are no doubt the worst team in the league right now. Tampa rolls, Kucherov finds the back on the net.
Brad Marchand ($7100) Boston Bruins – Marchand has put together a 6 game point streak leading the Bruins to a 5-1 record during that span. He has 10 points total in that time, making the star winger one of the most reliable fantasy plays of the night.
Sean Couturier ($6500) Philadelphia Flyers – Philly is riding a 4 game winging going into tonight’s game vs. Buffalo. The Sabres are 2-8 in the last 10 meetings in Philadelphia. Couturier has 8 points with 3 goals in his last 9 games.
Teams to Stack
San Jose Sharks – The Sharks kick off a three game road trip in Calgary and look to keep their offenses on track. Joe Thornton has collected a goal and 4 assists during his 3 game point streak. Brent Burns has recorded 2 points in each of his last 3 contests, including 3 goals.
Colorado Avalanche – Five days after rolling to a 7-3 rout of Florida in Miami, the Avalanche will take on the Panthers in a rematch in Denver. Nathan MacKinnon ($6600) leads the team in goals (11), assists (22) and points (33). Center Carl Soderberg ($3200) has 3 points and 10 shots on goal in his last 3 games. Winger Mikko Rantanen ($4700) has 6 points in his last 10 games and is averaging 3 shots on goal a game during that span.
Goalie of the night
Jake Allen ($8200) St. Louis Blues – My lock of the night is the Blues getting the W at home against the Ducks. Allen owns a 17-7-2 record with a .913 save percentage this season and is 5-2-0 with a 1.76 goals-against average versus Anaheim.
