Thanks for joining me again on Hot Pucking Stacks! Last night was wild! Most massive slates are nuts! The Washington Capitals won and Ovi had a hat trick! Montreal 2 had a great evening, 2 goals, 1 assist and 8 SOG! Calgary 2 was quite, Johnny scored once but it was a flop on such a big slate. Tampa Bay had a big night stats wise. TB1 accumulated 2 goals, 3 assists and 4 SOG. My New York Islander PP1 was a massive flop. Blue Jackets first line was even worse! Between the three skaters they only had 6 SOG.

With NHL DFS we have to forget fast and move ahead quickly! So tonight that’s what we will do! It’s a small two game schedule and there is a clear path to points!

Toronto Maple Leafs @ New York Rangers
Boston Bruins @ Chicago Blackhawk’s

At first glance I think its best to stack the TOR @ NYR game! The over/under implied goal total is 7! That’s a massive number in hockey terms! So as you will see shortly any combo of Maple Leafs and Rangers will do! Obviously we will want both top lines. We should also get creative with stacking those lesser known lines!

TORONTO 1

Zach Hyman L1
Auston Matthews L1 & PP1
Mitch Marner L1 & PP1

The Maple Leafs have the highest implied goal total tonight at 3.5. It would be really tough to fade Toronto tonight. Their top line is expensive and rightfully so. If you’re going to spend up tonight then choose Toronto 1!

TORONTO 2

Alexander Kerfoot L2
John Tavares L2 & PP1
William Nylander L2 & PP1

The Maple Leafs second is as effective as any second line in the NHL. For purpose of DFS they are a tad cheaper and you get awesome exposure to the top power play.

NEW YORK 1

Artemi Panarin L2 & PP1
Ryan Strome L2 & PP1
Jesper Fast L2

The Rangers have an implied goal total at 3.2. Lets follow suit and stack their first or second line. Or we can do a sweet combo as listed below!

NEW YORK 2

Phil DiGiuseppi L1
Mika Zibanejad L1 & PP1
Pavel Buchnevich L1 & PP1

The Rangers first line is ridiculously cheap aside from Mika. So its give you the chance to mix and match the NYR first power play unit too! There is a lot of room to move around in this one!

BOSTON 2

Jake DeBrusk L2 & PP1
David Krejci L2 & PP2
Karson Kuhlman L2

The Bruins second line tonight is very juicy far as value is concerned. All three are priced perfectly. With a total goal implication of 3.2 it’s a safe bet this line scores a goal or two. Given the need for a value line tonight with the expensive prices for TOR1 this line fits very well!

CHICAGO 2

Brandon Saad L2
Kirby Dach L2 & PP1
Patrick Kane L2 & PP1

Any line that has Patrick Kane skating in is always a go! This guy averages 1.22 point per game. Meaning, the other two skaters on the second line stand a chance at assists, goals and a healthy +/-. Much like the NYR2, Kane’s line mates are super cheap!

TOR2/CHI2

Tonight will be a nice exercise in double dipping power play lines and lines with or without their star skater. Here is a photo of the different lines and combinations and how I’m stacking them tonight!

Here are a few sample lineups I’ve been toying with since last night! Use these for fun and please play responsibly!
