Hot Pucking Stacks
Chris Robin

That is, it! The fantasy football season is done. NFL DFS is over. I hate to clog Hot Puck with football talk but that would not be honest of me. The 2020 football season was long. It was exhausting to say the least, yet we all did great! So many friendships were made, and relationships built. Time to close that book and look ahead.

The dynasty football folks never sleep, and it is never over for them. Yet the hockey season is a breath of fresh air for me personally. Transitioning to NHL DFS is a welcome change.

I am excited to continue our DFS relationship well into the winter. I am thankful we have come this far and there is no turning back now. Thank you for the support during football season. Let us carry that over into NHL.

Edmonton 2

Edmonton Oilers and Connor McDavid

Dominik Kahun L2 & PP2
Leon Draisaitl L2 PP1
Kailer Yamamoto L2

EDM one off – Connor McDavid L1 & PP1

Edmonton heads to Ottawa tonight. While Oiler captain Connor McDavid is leading the team in goals (9), assists (17) and points with (26). Edmonton is scoring an average of 3.50 goals per game and allowing around 3.80 goals per game. If you look at EDM2 with the addition of McDavid we are getting major exposure to their PP1. The Edmonton power play is scoring 26.5% of the time so it would be wise to build our lines around them tonight. Ottawa is allowing, on average, 4.30 goals a game. While the Senators penalty kill unit is only killing off penalties 72.3% of the time. Stack Edmonton tonight!

Toronto 1

Toronto Maple Leafs

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

The Maple Leafs host Vancouver tonight looking to beat Vancouver for the third straight time! Toronto captain Auston Matthews is the leading the team in goals (10), while Mitchell Marner has 14 assists and leading Toronto with 20 overall points. Toronto is scoring an average of 3.80 goals per game but only allowing around 2.70 goals a contest. What I am looking to do here tonight is get in on their top power play unit. Their power play is scoring about 39% of the time which is outstanding. The Canucks are allowing around 4.20 goals per game while they are only killing about 76% of their pentalties. The numbers are adding up in what should be 6-3 or 6-4 final!

Ottawa Senators 1

Ottawa Senators

Brady Tkachuk L1 & PP1
Josh Norris L1 & PP2
Evganii Dadonov L1 & PP1

Nothing more then a contrarian off the map play. Yet the argument holds some water. From the Sens first line Josh Norris leads the team with five assists. Ottawa is only scoring around 2.35 goals per game but the stat that sticks out is their average of allowing 4.30 goals a game. The over/under tonight in Ottawa is at 6.5 goals and will undoubtedly hit. Personally, the Senators do not stand a chance in this one but can see their first line scoring two or three goals. This game will be a super face paced affair accumulating a treasure trove of points. OTT1 ownership will be so low and miniscule that it makes them appetize in large sized GPP’s!

Tampa Bay Lightning 2

Tampa Bay

Alex Killorn L2 & PP1
Anthony Cirelli L2 & PP2
Tyler Johnson L2 & PP2

TB one off – Brayden Point L1 & PP1

Tampa is off to a fantastic start, 7-1-1! Tampa Bay is scoring around 3.60 goals a game. They head to Nashville tonight to battle the Preds. Defensively Nashville is giving up around 3 goals a contest. I see no reason why Tampa Bay cannot score 4 or 5 goals tonight. With the addition of Brayden Point as our one off we get a taste of their PP1 and PP2. This four-person stack has the chance to put up 3 or 4 goals and several assists. Fade at your own risk!

New York Rangers 2

New York Rangers

Artemi Panarin L2 & PP1
Ryan Strome L2 & PP2
Kaapo Kakko L2 & PP2

NYR one off – Mika Zibanejad L1 & PP1

The New York Islanders head across the bridge to battle for New York supremacy. The Rangers offense is scoring about 2.95 goals a game. Yet on defense the Rangers are giving up around 2.75 goals a game. As of right now the Islanders are not playing so hot. They did beat Pittsburgh last time out but are only scoring 2.30 goals a game. In the above stack with the addition of Mika we are getting 50/50 exposure to both the Rangers top power play units. I am predicting a 4-2 or 5-2 final here in favor of the Rangers.

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