Hot Pucking Stacks 8/18
Chris Robin

During a conversation in group chat on social media last night I became aware of a few things…

First, there are large groups of people watching hockey for the first time and really enjoying themselves!

Second, this same group of people are now getting involved with NHL DFS!

Third, Hot Puck has been fantastic but its also been hit and miss. Which is typical for a DFS article. Only thing I can do is review the research and establish ideas to the best of my ability.

Forth and last, the support and creative ideas floating around all social media outlets has been uplifting and tremendous! I’ve always been happy and supportive of others! Especially when it comes to fantasy sports! So thank you! Thank you to everyone who reads Hot Puck and thank you for the continued support!

PHI (2.7) @ MTL (2.4)
CGY (2.5) @ DAL (2.7)
WSH (2.6) @ NYI (2.6)
CHI (2.5) @ LVK (3.2)

There are a ton of game scripts and playoff narratives today and tonight! Buckle up, lace up the skates and lets hit the ice!


Jamie Benn L1 & PP1
Tyler Seguin L1 & PP1
Alexander Radulov L1 & PP1

This series is averaging 6.25 total goals a game. Only makes sense to have a piece of DAL1 here tonight. Series is tied 2-2 headed into game 5 this afternoon. You all know I’ve been into CGY but tonight the better team will prevail, the Dallas Stars!


James van Riemsdyk L3 & PP2
Derek Grant L3
Nicolas Aube-Kubel L3 & PP2
I’m all over PHI tonight! MTL is a great team but they are on the brink here and the Flyers go big and push MTL closer the edge.


Anthony Beauvillier L2 & PP1
Brock Nelson L2 & PP1
Josh Bailey L2 & PP1

For Washington it’s win or go home tonight. The Islanders have been fantastic and fun to watch! Tonight we see a tight one, 2-1 or even 1-0! Way under the total implied goal total of 5. To me, this is gut call and I’m staying away from this game. Just going to watch and enjoy it!


Max Pacioretty L1 & PP1
Mark Stone L1 & PP1
Chandler Stephenson L1


Las Vegas Golden Knights

Jonathon Marchessault L2 & PP1
William Karlsson L2 & PP1
Reilly Smith L2 & PP2

Chicago took a game in this series keeping their postseason alive but it’s all over tonight folks. Vegas is just too good. They are fun to watch and peppered Crawford with 49 shots last time out. Vegas is projected around 3.5 goals tonight and I love the over! Take your pick of their lines! Cant go wrong!


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

I know I know told you I wasn’t too interested in this game offensively. This is just the classic case of gaining leverage and/or a back up plan in GPP’s tonight. WSH2 is cheaply priced aside from Oshie but the exposure to both power play units covers our butts on the off chance the Caps do score 2+ times.


Carl Hagelin L3
Ilya Kovachuk L3 & PP2
Brian Pinho L3

See above!
