NHL DFS Stacks 4/3
The last week of the regular season is here and Tuesday has a huge 9 game slate with the #1 spot in the Eastern conference on the line. With only a few more big game slates left before the playoff get underway we will highlight 3 teams to stack in DFS action to help get your wallet right before the playoffs.
Boston Bruins– The Bruins head to Tampa with one seed in the Eastern conference on the line. Boston has a 2 point lead with 4 games to go, one more than the Lightning, and has earned at least a point in nine straight outings (5-0-4), including two wins over Tampa Bay in that stretch. As of now it looks like Tampa will be without their captain Steven Stamkos and that has me rolling with the B’s tonight. The Bruins have won eight of the last nine meetings with the Lightning, including all three this season by a combined score of 10-4. 1st line center Patrice Bergeron ($7100) can anchor any lineup in any format tonight. Bergeron is riding a 3 game point streak including 3 points vs. Tampa last week. Winger David Pastrnak ($6700) in currently on a 6 game point streak while averaging 5 shots on goal a game in that span. On the Blue line Torey Krug ($5900) has owned the lighting posting 5 assist in the last two matchups.
Philadelphia Flyers– The Flyers head the Brooklyn to take on the dismal Islanders. An 8 game point streak (5-0-3) has powered the Philadelphia Flyers to the cusp of a return to the playoffs after missing out last season. Philly is 6-1 in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a losing home record. I’m targeting two wingers tonight for the Flyers Jakub Voracek ($6200) and Travis Konecny ($5400). Voracek has 1 goal with 4 assist this year vs. New York. Konecny has found the back of the net 6 times in the last 8 contest.
Winnipeg Jets – Winnipeg aims for its 9th win in 10 contest as they face off against the Montreal Canadiens Tuesday night. Winnipeg occupies 2nd place in the Central Division but still has an outside shot at the top spot as it trails 1st place Nashville by five points with three games remaining. Targeting the 2nd line for the jets lead by center Paul Stastny ($5500) has 11 in 16 games since being acquire from St. Louis. Alongside Stanstny are winger Nikolaj Ehlers ($5800) and Patrik Laine ($7400). Laine will be looking to break 7 game point drought vs. a horrible team and Ehlers has 2 assist with 7 shots in his last 2 contest.
