Hot Pucking Stacks
Chris Robin

As daily fantasy sports have grown and become more popular so have the strategies and conversation. The DFS boom has been a welcomed change to the landscape of seasonal fantasy sports.

I started using Fanduel in September 2013. Hockey was the first real DFS sport I dug into. Along the way it has been a lot of trial and error. The beauty of sports betting and DFS is that everyone has their own process. Everyone thinks they have it all figured out. Yet not everyone is willing to share or help others. Which is fine! You are entitled to you own opinion or sense of anonymity.

That is where we differ. For almost eight years I have gained this vast knowledge of DFS and could not be more excited to share my own personal process. Support group meetings have loads of corny cliches and catch phrases. I could implement a ton of them here but the most important one to me given the topic is “we can only keep what we have by giving it away.”

Personally, I can only do so much with this information. I decided long ago to help others and give what I have learned away! Tonight, the hockey schedule is only two games. Two games and four teams. Smaller slates have always been my bread and butter. Hopefully, you trust me enough to take this journey with me tonight!

Tampa Bay Lightning 1

Tampa Bay captain Steven Stamkos

Ondrej Palat L1 & PP1
Brayden Point L1 & PP1
Steven Stamkos L1 & PP1

It is no surprise that Steven Stamkos is the leading goal scorer for Tampa Bay. Steven has four goals and is leading the team in points (9). Tampa Bay is scoring an average of 3.50 goals per game and only allowing 2.25 goals per game. The Tampa Bay Power Player is scoring 24.0% of the time! Which might not seem like much but its good for 1st overall. While their penalty-kill has been functioning around 80.0% of the time. In layman’s terms, Tampa has been awesome to start the season and it will not change tonight against the Wings. TB wins 5-1 or 6-2. Stack TB!

Tampa Bay Lightening 3

Tampa Bay Lightning

Blake Coleman L3
Yanni Gourde L3 & PP2
Barclay Goodrow L3

I will not carry on about Tampa Bay here. Just know they could easily score 4+ goals and their third line will be getting in on the action for a noticeably cheaper price.

Boston Bruins 2

Boston Bruins

Nick Ritchie L2 & PP1
David Krejci L2 & PP2
Craig Smith L2 & PP2

Philadelphia welcomes in Boston tonight for what should be a fun and incredibly competitive game! Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask is 3-1-1 with a GAA (goals against average) of 2.50 and his .889 save percentage has held steady. Boston is scoring around 3.30 goals per game and allowing an average of 2.50 goals per game. If you notice with BOS2 we get exposure to their PP1 and a chuck of their PP2. Looking at Boston’s power-play I love the fact they are scoring 30.6% of the time. BOS @ PHI is the more stackable game tonight. Expect a 4-3 or even a 5-4 final tonight in Philly.

Philadelphia Flyers 2

Philadelphia Flyers

Oskar Lindblom L2 & PP2
Kevin Hayes L2 & PP2
Travis Konecny L2 & PP2

The Philadelphia Flyers are looking for their fifth consecutive victory tonight. Flyer goalie Carter Hart is sitting on a 3.61 GAA and a save percentage of .895. Philadelphia is scoring around 3.60 goals a game while giving up around 3.20 goals per game. The Flyers power play is scoring at a 29.7% clip. Again, this one should be fun and fast paced and destroy the o/u 5.5 goals.

It is no secret that TB1 and BOS1 are the plays tonight. That makes them chalk. With the Main slate only being two games everybody under the sun will be using these two lines. Which is fine but what complementary stack will use with it? TB3, BOS2 and PHI2!

The Core Four idea has been received well! Let us keep that going!

Here are some sample lines I am going to be using. Keep in mind these are for entertainment purposes only.
