Back at it tonight with 12 games! Tonight is broken down into four separate slates. Main, express, Express II and after hours.

We’ve taken our time here and have come up with eight different line combos. Some expensive and some cheap lines. It was very confusing at first glance but the numbers spoke to me. They told me to follow my heart!

COLORADO 1

Gabriel Landeskog L1 & PP1
Nathan MacKinnon L1 & PP1
Mikko Ratingen L1 & PP1

COLORADO 2

Valeri Nichushkin L2 & PP2
Nazem Kadri L2 & PP1
Andre Burakovsky L2

I’m going to lump both Colorado lines together in this one. They jumped off the page to me right off the bat. That first power play line is going to do some damage tonight in Ottawa.

EDMONTON 2

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins L2 & PP1
Leon Draisaitl L2 & PP1
Kailer Yamamoto L2 & PP2

Edmonton’s second line is actually ranked higher and a little better then their first line! All thanks to Leon and Ryan Nug! They both play on the first power play with Connor. That’s really what we’re after here. McDavid is at 1.49 points a game. So the trick here is to get a piece of him without his spending up on his crazy high salary.

MONTREAL 2

Ilya Kovalchuk L2 & PP2
Nick Suzuki L2 & PP1
Joel Armia L2 & PP2

Montreal is a home favorite tonight vs. the Ducks. The Canadians have a 3 goal implication tonight and I think they meet it with ease!

PHILADELPHIA 1

James van Riemsdyk L1 & PP1
Claude Giroux L1 & PP1
Travis Konecny L1 & PP1

The Flyers are another team who jumped off the computer screen at me today. The Devils are in Philly tonight and they are a massive underdog. Look for the Flyers top line to exceed their 3.4 implied goal implication. Fire up their top line with confidence!

CALGARY 2

Johnny Gaudreau L2 & PP1
Sean Monanhan L2 & PP1
Buddy Robinson L2

Back to the Calgary 2 well again! Nashville is in Calgary tonight and its completely split down the middle! Goal implications and all! Their second line is a tad pricy but could pay dividends on the power play.

BUFFALO 3

Jeff Skinner L3 & PP1
Evan Rodrigues L3 & PP2
Rasmus Asplund L3

The Red Wings are in town tonight so I wouldn’t be upset if any of you went with BUF1 and Jack Eichel. Buffalos third line is a nice way to get some salary relief.

ST. LOUIS 2

Jaden Schwartz L2 & PP1
Brayden Schenn L2 & PP1
Robert Thomas L2 & PP2

The Blues are favorites tonight at home against the Jets. They are projected win at 70% with a 3.3 goal implication. Most people will flock to the Blues first line. Best production will come from their second line.

PITTSBURGH @ TAMPA BAY

Oh boy! I’d be an idiot not to mention this one. Loaded with massive stars but all at extremely high prices. Best thing I can tell you is look for a few one offs on each 1st or 2nd line. Like Pittsburgh’s Jared McCann or Dominik Simon. Both play on the Penguins top line with Crosby and they are both under $5k.
Same principles apply for Tampa Bay. Ondrej Palat and Tyler Johnson come to mind. Both play on the Lightening second line and get some PP2 minutes. They are both under 5k as well!

Happy hunting! As always these lines are to be used for fun! Please play responsibly!
