Hot Pucking Stacks

We made it through the month of January! Now we set our sights on making it past February and March. During this time in Michigan, it is cold, dark, and dreary. Over the years I have learned to keep busy with several activities.
Daily fantasy sports, to me, is the best way to kill time and really enjoy myself! I was introduced to NHL DFS in 2013 and I have not looked back. I would spend hours researching and filling notebooks with ideas and plans. There was a time where I truly felt I held the key to solving NHL DFS. This just in, I have not cracked the code.
In turn, I came up with several great strategies to put you in the best possible spot to win consistently! We are now several weeks into the NHL season and everything is starting to take shape. Most lines are locked in now and the skaters accumulating chemistry! Hold on my friends cause it’s about to get good!
The NHL schedule tonight is only five games. It is my personal sweet spot. Here are six stacks I love tonight!
New York Rangers 1
Mika Zibanejad L1 & PP1
Pavel Buchnevich L1 & PP1
Alexis Lafreniere L1 & PP1
The New York Ranger host the Pittsburgh Penguins Monday evening. Last time out PIT beat the Rangers in overtime. The Penguins ended up winning the game by a 5-4 score. On Saturday, these two teams combined for 72 total shots! The Rangers have tried to tighten up on defense recently but keep falling short. Tough to get a firm handle on this one but the o/u is at 6.5 goals. I believe the under hits and the final score will be around 3-2 in favor of the Rangers.
Calgary Flames 2
Johnny Gaudreau L2 & PP1
Sean Monahan L2 & PP1
Andrew Mangiapane L2 & PP2
The Calgary Flames have scored around 2.86 goals per game. On defense the Flames are giving up about 2.43 goals per game. While the Jets are only scoring 3.63 goals per game. The power play for the Jets has converted at a clip of 19.4% on the year. Defensively Winnipeg is allowing 3.13 goals a game. The o/u tonight is hovering around 6 goals. As far as projections for tonight contest it is split right down the middle! I am going to give the bump to CGY seeing how they have stepped up on defense as of late.
Montreal Canadians 2
Jonathan Drouin L2 & PP1
Nick Suzuki L2 & PP1
Josh Anderson L2
Keep an eye open for Josh Anderson’s status tonight. He was sent home Saturday with flu like symptoms. However, Josh did test NEGATIVE for COVID-19 and again Sunday. If Josh is inactive there will be an update to Hot Puck right before puck drop!
Montreal is hosting the red-hot Vancouver Canucks tonight. Montreal is scoring about 4.40 goals per game and giving up about 3.30 goals per game. Jonathan Drouin is the leading the Canadians with 7 assists. Vancouver has ONLY allowed ONE goal per game their last four while scoring a combined 20 goals! Stacking the Canadians tonight is very risky given how well the Canucks have played. Yet, that’s why I am enamored by them! Low ownership and cheaply priced, an NHL DFS player dream!
Tampa Bay Lightning 2
Alex Killorn L1 & PP1
Anthony Cirelli L1 & PP2
Tyler Johnson L1 & PP2
The first line for Tampa is where it’s at tonight but they will be massive chalk. So highly owned that there is no real advantage to be gained. I have no issue with TB1 we just need an off the beaten path complementary stack. Tampa Bay is scoring around 3.17 goals per game and fully expect TB to put up 4+ goals tonight.
Boston Bruins 3
Trent Frederic L3 & PP2
Charlie Coyle L3 & PP2
Craig Smith L3 & PP2
Boston skates into Washington to face off vs the Caps. Another massively favorite stack tonight will be BOS1 without a doubt. With an o/u of 6 total goals I think it best to stack the less popular lines. If you look at BOS3 you are also getting exposure to the second power play unit. In what I expect to be a 4-3 or 5-4 final this one should be a free for all!
Vancouver Canucks 1
J.T. Miller L1 & PP1
Elias Pettersson L1 & PP1
Brock Boeser L1 & PP1
Vancouver has scored 20 total goals their last four games yet has allowed four goals during that time. When I say they are hot that means hot-hot! Brock Boeser is leading the team with eight goals and Boeser is also leading the team it total overall points (11). The Canucks are scoring around 3.86 goals a game and I fully expect them to light the lamp at least four times tonight. The Vancouver first line is easily my favorite stack on the slate!
It is an exciting time friend! As the NHL season starts to heat up so will Hot Pucking stacks!
Instead of a FULL and FREE line how about a core four? Keep your eyes open throughout the day on Twitter as I add more ideas and lines. Keep in mind these are for entertainment purposes only.
