Where do I begin? The NBA has suspended their season. Tom Hanks has corona virus. March Madness will be played without fans. A few NHL teams are following suit now and not allowing fans to attend their games.

With Spring Training in full swing I can’t help but think they may suspend play. This virus has officially caused widespread panic. You can’t find toilet paper. Hand sanitizer has all but disappeared. Where a hazmat suit is now the new norm.

As it stands now I don’t know where we stand! Quite frankly, I have a feeling this gets worse before it gets better. In times of panic and when life seems grim there has always been one constant. Sports. This time around even that is in jeopardy.

Hockey players are cut from a different cloth. Loose 5 teeth? Need 15 stitches? No problem put me back on the ice. That leads me to believe the NHL will go on!

If you’re just discovering Hot Pucking Stacks because NBA DFS is suspended I welcome you! I’m sorry it has come to this but I welcome new readers. Hang here and let me walk through this hockey slate. Let me explain my process. Every storm runs out of rain and every virus dries up.

Tonight there are ten games on the NHL schedule. I’m in the business of bringing you a collections of stacks and one off plays to help build a monster lineup. Thank you for reading and I won’t let you down!

Alex Ovechkin L1 & PP1 & PP2
Evgeny Kuznetsov L1 & PP2
Tom Wilson L1 & PP2


Jakub Vrana L2
Nicklas Backstrom L2 & PP1
T.J. Oshie L2 & PP1

Washington has beat up on my Wings recently winning 8 of the last 10. On an average of 2+ goals. The Capitals are a free square today!


Kasperi Kapanen L2 & PP2
John Tavares L2 & PP1
Mitch Marner L2 & PP1

Toronto has beaten Nashville 5 of their last 7 meetings. NSH has had trouble putting wins tonight. Toronto is too talented to blow this game.


Carl Soderberg L2 & PP1
Nick Schmaltz L2 & PP1
Phil Kessel L2 & PP1

I’ve back Vancouver often but not tonight. They are on the road in Arizona, who is fighting for points and a playoff spot.


Denis Gurianov L2 & PP1
Roope Hintz L2 & PP2
Joe Pavelski L2 & PP2

The Stars have lost six in a row while Florida comes to town trying to get ahead of TOR for a playoff spot. That being said, DAL breaks out of their funk tonight.


Jonathan Marchessault L1 & PP1
Paul Stastny L1 & PP1
Reilly Smith L1 & PP2

This has all the makings of Minnesota winning. Again, I don’t care who wins! We only care about goals and points. This one should be a fast paced wide open type of game. I like VGK to put in 2-3 goals tonight!


Alex Killorn L1 & PP1
Anthony Cirelli L1 & PP2
Nikita Kucherov L1 & PP1

I’ve been quite high on Philly recently but that ends tonight. TB has beaten the Flyers 8 times the past 10 games. Tampa has also outscored them 11-5 during that span. Philly is no doubt hotter but TB has their number!


Warren Foegele L2
Vincent Trocheck L2 & PP2
Martin Necas L2 & PP2

CAR @ NJ, two teams that have been off after the trade deadline. The Devils are finally home after 6 straight road games. The home team in this series has won 8 of the last 10 games. Not a glowing endorsement for Carolina right? NJ folds when it matters most. Give me CAR big tonight! 4-1 or 5-2!


Charles Hudon L2 & PP2
Max Domi L2 & PP1
Brendan Gallagher L2 & PP1

MTL is the favorite tonight vs. a Buffalo team who is horrible on the road! The home team has won 6 of the last 9 in this series. Buffalo folds and Montreal gets 3 or 4 goals in this one!


Patrick Marleau L2 & PP2
Evgeni Malkin L2 & PP1
Bryan Rust L2 & PP2

No fans will be in attendance tonight in Columbus. That will take the air out of the arena. PIT is very talented but they haven’t put it all together yet. The Penguins are no doubt the better team and will flex their muscle tonight in CBJ.

Hot Puck has put it all together! Your one stop shop for NHL DFS! I’ve listened to all of you! I’ve read the comments and emails! By popular demand, Hot Pucking Stacks presents our lightening round of BOTH offensive one offs AND Defensive one offs!

Mixing and matching is my favorite way to attack a smaller slate! Find one stud line to use then mix and match the rest! Are you ready? Good! Here they are!

OFFENSIVE one offs..

Ilya Kovalchuk WSH vs. DET L3 & PP1 (FD-$4,100)(DK-4,600)

Zach Hyman TOR vs. NSH L1 & PP2 (FD-$4,800)(DK-$5,200)

Clayton Keller ARZ vs. VAN L1 & PP2 (FD-$5,100)(DK-4,700)

Hot Pucking Stacks 2/5/20 (TWO FREE lineups)

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!


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!


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.


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!


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!


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!


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!


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!

Line combos


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

Hot Pucking Stacks 1/29/20 (TWO FREE lineups)

Yesterday went well! Ottawa PP1, Calgary 1 and St. Louis 2 all scored numerous times! It was an extremely small slate so not much to brag about. We have major momentum moving in our direction lately! Every day here at DFS Cheat Sheets we’re getting better and better!

Total 158.4

Today there are six games. A main slate and a smaller four game after hours. There are a few great stacks this evening and a few of them can be used in BOTH main and after hours. One thing I’ve learned over the years is to play the smaller slates. It cuts down risk and give you somewhat of an advantage.


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

If you’ve followed Hot Pucking Stacks then you know how much I love doubling down. Meaning a line of skaters to also sees power play minutes. With TOR2 we also get exposure to the first power play unit. On Monday the Maple Leafs socred five times.

William Nylander 18:32 (TOI) 1 goal 1 assist 2 points +1 and 4 (SOG)
John Tavares 20:15 (TOI) +2 and 4 (SOG)
Alexander Kerfoot 18:46 (TOI) 1 assist 1 point +3 and 1 (SOG)

This second line has been pretty active as of late and their opponent, Dallas Stars, has given up the most goals this season with 120. The Maple Leafs have scored the most goals this season with 180. Sometimes its just that simple! Fire up Toronto!


Ondrej Palat L2 & PP2
Anthony Cirelli L2
Tyler Johnson L2 & PP2

The Lightening are once again fantastic and their top line is on fire. They are also very expensive on a nightly basis. Given the slate this evening I’d rather find more value in other lines and half the price.


Barclay Goodrow L2
Joe Thornton L2 & PP1
Kevin LaBanc L2 & PP1

The Sharks are my favorite team tonight! Their second line is in a great spot and they are ridiculously cheap! Plus you get exposure to the top power play unit. It’s almost too good to be true! If you’d like we can mix and match the Sharks top line and first power play units.

Tomas Hertl L1 & PP1
Evander Kane L1 & PP1
Erik Carlson (defense) L2 & PP1


JT Miller L2 & PP1
Elias Pettersson L2 & PP1
Jake Virtanen L2 & PP2

Here’s the deal, the Canucks are second overall in play off goals (43) and the ninth most goals scored so far this season (162). While the Sharks have the best penalty killing percentage (87.3%). San Jose has accumulated a whopping 596 penalty minutes this season too. That’s around 10.5 penalty minutes a game. Now we see why they lead the league in PIM. Something has to give late this evening!

Here is a sample lineup for main. These are always for fun and please play safe!


Here is an after hours lineup. As you can see some of these stacks translate to both main and after hours!

Hot Pucking Stacks 1/21/20

There’s an old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” Same principles apply here with hockey. When we come upon a team or line that is playing at such a high level we choose that team and line. In other words, its called, “eating the chalk”.

Quick refresher, chalk is a player or team that the entire world knows is going to perform well. In turn, high ownership. In most cases we want to stray away from high owned players or teams right? Be different. Go with the contrarian choice. Yes and no.

In a large GPP being different pays off. In cash games chalk is your best friend. It’s all about what you’re trying to do and what contests you play. At this point this shouldn’t be news to you. Hence the refresher.

In my first few days here with you on DFS Cheat Sheet I’ve mentioned the Rangers, Jets and Hurricanes a few times. They haven’t broken yet so there’s nothing to fix! Let’s dig in!


Carolina PP1

Andrei Svechnikov
Sebastian Aho
Erik Haula
Teuvo Teravainen

I love this power play unit! Carolina is #9 overall so far this season. They’ve scored 32 goals on the power play. That’s 21.3% of the time! These guys are humming along with the man advantage. Jaccob Slavin is the anchor here at +14.

CHALK of the day!

BOS line 1

Boston 1 & PP1

Brad Marchand
Patrice Bergeron
David Pastrnak

Listen, the Boston Bruins are one of the best teams in the NHL. It gets more and more ridiculous the more you dig in. Bruins are #3 in power play goals (42) #3 in power play percentage (26.3%) #3 in killing penalties (83.6%) and 6th overall in goals scored (166). So its only right every time they play you want a piece of their top line, which also doubles as their #1 power play unit. These three men are also quite expensive and deservedly so. Some days you have to eat the chalk. Today is one of those days. The Golden Knights are in the bottom half of penalty kill (97.8%) and at the top of penalty minutes so far this season (193). It’s a perfect storm!

Pittsburgh 2

Dominik Kahun PP2
Evgeni Malkin PP1
Bryan Rust PP1

WPG line 2

Winnipeg 2

Nikolaj Ehlers PP2
Mark Scheifele PP1
Jack Roslovic PP2

NYR line 2

New York Rangers 2

Artemi Panarin PP1
Ryan Strome PP1
Jesper Fast

BONUS one offs…

NYI Matt Barzal
VGK Max Pacioretty

Matt Barzal New York Islanders center
Max Pacioretty Vegas Golden Knights winger
