NHL DFS Cheat Sheet 1/12
We got a small 5 game NHL slate Friday night. We will preview 3 teams to stack in DFS contest tonight to help boast your bank accounts going into a jam packed weekend of sports.
Winnipeg Jets – The red hot Jets visit the Windy City to take on the Chicago Blackhawks Friday night. Winnipeg are 6-0-1 since the Christmas break and since San Jose players made fun of their home city. Center Blake Wheeler has led the way during this streak with 11 points (5 goals, 6 assists). Line mate Kyle Conner ($6000) is thriving paired with Wheeler with 9 points in ten games .Conner is also seeing top power play minutes on the 2nd ranked power play in the league (%25). Going cheap on Defensive Tyler Myers ($4500) has some great value riding a 3 game point streak and averaging 3 shots per game in his and last 10 contest.
Calgary Flames – The Flames are rolling and just smacked around the best team in hockey Tampa Bay 5-1, on their own ice last night. Calgary takes their 5 game winning streak down to south Florida to take on the Panthers. The two top plays for the Flames tonight I’m leaning Sean Monahan ($6200) riding a 5 game point streak and Micheal Ferland ($4500) who has 4 straight games with a goal and an assist. The cheap play I’m targeting the 2nd line of Troy Brouwer ($3200), Mikael Backlund ($4700), and Matthew Tkachuk ($5000). Tkachuk has 5 points in his last 4 games while averaging 3 shots per game. Brouwer has seen more ice time due to injuries with 2 points in the last 4 games and he had a goal and assist in his last meeting vs. Florida. The Flames have won the last 3 meeting against the Panthers.
Columbus Blue Jackets – The Jackets take on a Vancouver club who hasn’t won a road game in over a month, going 0-4-2. Columbus is looking to get back on track after an embarrassing lost last night in Buffalo. Stacking the Jackets 1st line center/winger pair of Pierrre-Luc Dubois ($5400) and Artemi Panarin ($6700) against the worst defensive team in the league. Panarin is on a 3 game point streak along with 15 shots during that span. For Dubois as long as he’s skating on a line with Panarin he has a good chance of landing on the score sheet at the end of the night.
