This weekend was beautiful and the hockey action was fantastic. Today is Presidents Day so we have an earlier lock with the Main contest.

4p Main (5 games)
6p After Hours (2 games)

I had a few questions yesterday in regards to my sample lineups compared to the stacks I list. When I research I find line combos and skaters that are in good spots. When sharing sample lines it is a mix and match of the different ways I see fit to use the skaters I like.

Of course we all have our way to research and build lines. There are also many different ways to accumulate points. Ideally it’s not a good move to stack an entire line against the opposing goalie but one skater isn’t going to bury your goalie.

It’s all a process and over the years I’ve tried many different ideas and combinations. We all have our own way and that’s the beauty to this. I’m thankful for all the readers and comments I’ve received.

LAS VEGAS 1

Jonathan Marchessault L1 & PP1
Paul Stastny L1 & PP1
Reilly Smith L1 & PP2

LAS VEGAS 2

Max Pacioretty L1 & PP2
William Karlsson L2 & PP2
Mark Stone L2 & PP1

Marc-Andre Fleury has been cruising this season at 22-14-5. The Golden Knights welcome in the Washington Caps tonight. Vegas has been great at home but Washington has been strong on the road. Vegas out shot the Islanders last time out 20-4 in the second period then 15-9 in the third. Vegas is buzzing around on the offensive side of the ice and all those shots immaculate points. I can see a 4-3 final tonight. Plenty of points to go around in this one!

WASHINGTON 1

Alex Ovechkin L1 & PP1
Nicklas Backstrom L1 & PP1
Tom Wilson L1 & PP2

WASHINGTON 2

Jakub Vrana L2 & PP1
Lars Eller L2 & PP2
T.J. Oshie L2 & PP1

Washington is 19-7 their last 26 road games. The Caps are among one of the best teams in hockey this season. They are also 7-1 vs. Vegas in their last 8 meetings. There is too much value with the Caps here tonight. Expensive salaries and all. As stated about I envision a 4-3 or 5-3 final tonight. Capitols win!

FLORIDA 1

Jonathan Huberdeau L1 & PP1
Aleksander Barkov L1 & PP1
Elias Lindholm L1 & PP1

Head to head the Panthers are 5-1 their last 6 games vs. the Sharks and 7-1 vs. the Sharks in San Jose. Both teams have picked up their play as of late and due to that fact SJ is favored at home. The Panthers however have a legitimate shot at putting some point together and getting into the playoffs. Might seem silly but I believe these factors play big roles in a hockey games! Florida wins 4-2 or 4-3.

CALGARY 1

Johnny Gaudreau L1 & PP1
Sean Monahan L1 & PP1
Elias Lindholm L1 & PP1

The Flames have lost 7 of their last 11 games. Not a real strong opening statement when pushing Calgary tonight. However, the Flames are scoring 2.8 goals as of late and converting on 20.8% of their power play opportunities recently. Lindholm leads the team in goals (27) and Gaudreau leads with assists (35) while Monahan has 146 total shots on goal. This line is very effective and should be given plenty of chances tonight home vs. the Ducks. The Flames have beat the Ducks twice this season with a combined score of 8-1! Calgary wins at home tonight 4-1!

NEW YORK ISLANDERS 1

Anders Lee L1 & PP1
Mathew Barzal L1 & PP1
Jordan Eberle L1 & PP1

Arizona welcomes the Islanders in tonight having lost 9 of their last 12 games. The Coyotes are giving up 2.7 goals a game and have been awful killing penalties. Arizona has given up three or more goals in their last 11 of 14 games. While New York has won 7 of the last 10 games vs. the Coyotes. From what I’ve seen so far today people are liking the Coyotes in this one after a great game vs. Washington. This doesn’t excite me! Lets zig when others zag! Roster NYI1 tonight! You won’t be sorry!

Here are a few one offs that deserve our attention tonight!

Steven Stamkos TB @ COL $8,400

Joonas Donski COL vs TB $3,700
