Have any of you ever heard the saying, “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”? I’ve mentioned this old adage a time or two in my writing over the years. Yet here I am doing the same thing over and over again. Yet, the results have been vastly different. Thanks to some hard work and all your support.

It can get absolutely exhausting waking up, following a routine, same breakfast, same dinner, going to bed and waking up and doing it all over again for months on end. Some people thrive on conformity while others are looking for change constantly.  What if the pursuit of abnormality turns into our routine? Always trying new ideas, sharing your odd thoughts and behaviors while still implementing a little bit of normal?

All I’ve wanted to do is share my personal process. In any way possible no matter how odd it sounds. Being able to get my thoughts onto print hasn’t always been easy. Yet when I’ve taken the risk the results have never been the same. Out with the old and in with the new. How about we mix in the new with the old on a daily basis? The results will be outstanding!

There are nine games on the NHL schedule tonight. Lock is at 7p EST. Here are four of my favorite stacks tonight! Enjoy and take some calculated risks!

Pittsburgh Penguins 2

Pittsburgh Penguins

Jason Zucker L2 & PP1
Evgeni Malkin L2 & PP1
Kasperi Kapanen L2 & PP1

Pittsburgh is scoring around 2.90 goals a game while allowing an average of 3.50 goals per game. The Penguins welcome in the New Islanders this evening. The Islanders have been hot as of late looking to win their fourth consecutive game tonight. New York is only allowing 2.30 goals a contest. Their first line will match-up very well against PIT1 leaving the Pens second line free and clear. Final score tonight 4-1 or even 3-1 in favor of Pittsburgh.

Boston Bruins 1

Boston Bruins

Brad Marchand L1 & PP1
Patrice Bergeron L1 & PP1
Jake DeBrusk L1 & PP2

Boston takes on the New Jersey Devils tonight at TD Garden. Not much to say here about the Bruins you do not already know. They are among the cream of the NHL crop having only lost two games so far this season. The Bruins are scoring about 2.90 goals a game. While their power has been successful 27% of the time. Defensively the Devils are allowing 2.60 goals a game yet are killing off their penalties 67.6% of the time. Tonight, will be more of a defensive battle than you would think. Yet Boston finds a way to score three or four time. BOS1 is always chalk when they play. That is no secret. Always good to pick our spots. Pick BOS1 tonight!

Toronto Maple Leafs 2

Toronto Maple Leafs

Zach Hyman L2 & PP2
John Tavares L2 & PP2
William Nylander L2 & PP2

Toronto hosts the Ottawa Senators tonight and surprise, TOR1 may be the highest owned line tonight. Which is fine but that creates some value for TOR2. This game should be the battle of backup goalies which only excites me more. Sens goalie Marcus Hogberg only has 2 wins and is allowing 4.30 goals a game. As it stands now Hogberg is projected in new for Ottawa. If that is solidified throughout the day stack TOR2!

Bonus stack! Washington Capitals 2

Washington Caps

Jakub Vrana L2 & PP1
Nicklas Backstrom L2 & PP1
Tom Wilson L2 & PP2

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

Here are some sample lines I am going to be using. Keep in mind these are for entertainment purposes only.

Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

Nothing snarky to say here! Only five games on the NHL schedule this evening. Toronto and Edmonton will be big time chalk tonight. Look for some value in DET1, CAR2 and even FLA2.

Carolina Hurricanes 2

Carolina Hurricanes

Nino Niederreiter L2 & PP1
Vincent Trocheck L2 & PP1
Martin Necas L2 & PP2

The Carolina Hurricanes have scored around 3.40 goals a game. While defensively the Hurricanes are allowing about 2.80 goals per game. However, tonight they welcome in the Florida Panthers. The Panther offense has been above average scoring 3.05 goals a contest. The most important thing here is the Florida defense. The Panthers are only allowing 2.90 goals a game. So why would we target such a stout defense? Carolina is hotter than a pickled pepper patch. They absolutely crushed Columbus last time out. Scoring seven goals.

Toronto Maple Leafs 1

Toronto Maple Leafs

Joe Thornton L1 & PP1
Auston Matthews L1 & PP1
Mitch Marner L1 & PP1

Toronto is playing Ottawa at home tonight. Dare I go on? The Maple Leafs are scoring a healthy 3.60 goals a game. While their power play has been successful around 35% of the time. TOR1 will also get us massive exposure to their top power play unit. I could make a case for the Senators first power play unit as well seeing how Toronto is only killing of about 65% of their penalties this season.

Edmonton Oilers 2

Edmonton Oilers

Dominik Kahun L2
Leon Draisaitl L2 & PP1
Kailer Yamamoto L2

Edmonton is scoring on average 3.50 goals per game while allowing around of 3.40 goals a game. Edmonton is one of the better teams in the NHL having won six of their last eight games. While Winnipeg has lost four of their last five. Edmonton should roll the Jets tonight. Final score 6-2 or even 5-1.

Detroit Red Wings 1

Detroit Red Wings

Filip Zadina L1 & PP1
Dylan Larkin L1 & PP1
Mathias Brome L1 & PP2

The Red Wings have been awful this season. They are only averaging 2.06 goals a game. So why stack DET1 tonight? They are cheap. They are at home. They hate the Blackhawks. Sometimes it is that easy! Enjoy!

How do you unwind and relax? How often do you unwind and relax? Our mental health and personal attitudes are extremely important. If you lined up ten people in a room how easy would it be to point out the miserable people? How fast could you tell me which people are rude jerks? In my experience it is quite easy.

We are all different yet share so many like-minded qualities. Life is hard. There is no handbook about how to act daily. Only basic guidelines. It all boils down to time. How do we spend our time? Who do we give our time to? People look at currency and think that is what it is all about. All about cash. When realistically time is the real currency.

So how do you want to spend your time? Happy and peaceful or miserable and angry?

Pittsburgh Penguins 1

Pittsburgh Penguins

Jake Guentzel L1 & PP1
Sidney Crosby L1 & PP1
Bryan Rust L1 & PP1

The Penguins welcome in the Washington Caps tonight in what should be a high scoring affair. Bryan Rust is leading the Pens in goals scored (5), assists (8) and points (13). Pittsburgh is scoring around 3.010 goals a contest while allowing about 3.60 goals a game. As you scroll through make sure to stop at the Washington 1 blurb. Easily could be a 6-4 or 5-4 final tonight.

New York Rangers 1

New York Rangers

Chris Kreider L1 & PP1
Mika Zibanejad L1 & PP1
Colin Blackwell L1 & PP2

The New Jersey Devils head to Madison Square Garden to tussle with the Rangers. The Devils have not played since January 31st! They have been apart of five consecutive postponed games. I had to reread that too. New York is scoring about 2.40 goals per game and allowing around 2.55 goals per game. I feel awful for saying this, but we should be picking on the Devils tonight. Practice is practice but there is no substitute to real time game action. New York is a safe bet for three goals tonight and a win. Plan accordingly.

Los Angeles Kings 2

Los Angeles Kings

Adrian Kempe L2 & PP1
Gabriel Vilardi L2 & PP2
Jeff Carter L2 & PP2

The Minnesota Wild head to LA to battle the Kings at the Staples Center. The Wild have had several issues with COVID restrictions and postponements. While the Kings have been for the most part unscathed. Los Angeles has been scoring around 3.10 goals a game. Will the Wild be slow or sluggish? The Kings should be able to get over on the Wild. 3-2 or 4-2 final tonight in LA.

Washington Capitals 1

Washington Capitals

Alexander Ovechkin L1 & PP1
Nicklas Backstrom L1 & PP1
Tom Wilson L1 & PP2

The Caps head to Pittsburgh tonight well-armed and ready to play. Nicklas Backstrom is the leading goal scorer for Washington (7), assists (11) and points (18). Washington is lighting the lap around 3.50 times a game while giving up about 3.80 goals per game. What stands out to me here for the Caps is their power play. Ovi with his one-timer on that right faceoff circle has been his calling card for years on end. The Caps are successfully converting on the power-play around 35.5% of the time. Do not see that changing much tonight. Look for Ovi to find the net tonight on the power play!

Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

This evenings hockey schedule is noticeably light. Only two games! Meaning, there is little to no room for error. Yet it also opens the idea of several stacks with several good combinations!

Let us discuss tonight’s hockey action. The Toronto Maple Leafs travel to Montreal to take on the Canadians. While the Boston Bruins head to New York to face the Rangers. Todays action from a betting perspective is as follows.

BOS (3.0) @ NYR (2.6) o/u 5.5.
TOR (3.2) @ MTL (3.2) o/u 6.5.

Montreal Canadians 2

Montreal Canadiens

Jonathan Drouin L2 & PP1
Nick Suzuki L2 & PP1
Josh Anderson L2 & PP2

Montreal’s 2nd line center Nick Suzuki is leading the team in assists with nine. While the Canadians are scoring around 4.25 goals a game and giving up around 3 goals a game. Montreal has started hot this season with an 8-2-2 record. Tonight, contest with Toronto is going to be very fantasy friendly. As a betting man I am taking the over here with a 5-2 or even 4-3 final.

Boston Bruins 2

Boston Bruins

Nick Ritchie L2 & PP1
David Krejci L2 & PP1
Craig Smith L2 & PP2

Boston skates into New York having won four in row at New York. The Bruins are scoring around 3.25 goals a contest and are allowing about 2.50 goals a game. Be mindful of the fact the Bruins last two games have postponed due to COVID-19 concerns. BOS1 is always in play but I could see a case for a slow start from them tonight.

New York Rangers 1

New York Rangers

Chris Kreider L1 & PP1
Mika Zibanjad L1 & PP1
Pavel Buchnevich L1 & PP1

The New York Rangers are scoring around 2.65 goals a game and are giving up exactly 2.65 goals per game. New York is in last place as of now in the East division. They have loads of offensive talent but have not started to click yet. Tonight, could be tough sledding for the Rangers but I am willing to take the risk on such a small slate.

Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

As promised, Hot Puck is heating up big time! If you are a true-blue hockey fan, then you can set your watch by this! The first few weeks of the NHL season is unorganized. It is a free for all. Line combinations are constantly being swapped, changed, and toyed with.

Soon as we get to week three and four its like a light switch! BAM! Line combos begin to click. Power play units are locked in and young goalies rise to the challenge. In turn, Hot Puck begins to sync with DFS players and fall right into place!

Montreal Canadians 2

Montreal Canadiens

Jonathan Drouin L2 & PP1
Nick Suzuki L2 & PP1
Josh Anderson L2 & PP1

So far this season Montreal has been one of the best offenses across the NHL scoring, on average, 4.50 goals a game. Their power play for is cashing in at 29.3%. While their defense has allowed around 3.10 goals per game. Tonight, MTL hosts an Ottawa Senators defense that is giving up 4.9 goals per game! They continue to be underwhelming under owned every night. MTL2 is without a doubt my favorite stack of the night and fully expect the Canadians to score 5+ goals tonight! STACK MTL2!

Carolina Hurricanes 2

Carolina Hurricanes

Nino Niederreiter L2 & PP2
Vincent Trocheck L2 & PP2
Martin Necas L2 & PP2

Carolina skates into Chicago tonight scoring around 2.95 goals a game. While their power play is nothing to write home about scoring around 23.5% of the time. Defensively Carolina has given up about 2.20 goals a game. On the flip side Chicago is only allowing 2.75 per contest. Something here tells me Carolina will score three or four times tonight.

St. Louis Blues 2

St. Louis Blues

Jaden Schwartz L2 & PP1
Brayden Schenn L2 & PP1
Jordan Kyrou L2 & PP2

The Arizona Coyotes head to St. Louis this evening. Brayden Schenn is currently the man in St Louis. He has scored with six goals! While Jordan Kyrou is leading the team in assists (7). Kyrou also lead STL in points (12). The Blues are clicking right now and scoring 3.10 goals a game. Yet, only allowing 2.75 goals a game. I am not really a numbers guy but if you score more than you give you the result should always be favorable! I am expecting St. Louis to score four or five times tonight at home.

Arizona Coyotes 1

Arizona Coyotes

Clayton Keller L1 & PP2
Nick Schmaltz L1 & PP1
Conor Garland L1 & PP1

On the other end of the ice tonight St. Louis, we have the Coyotes. Arizona winger, Conor Garland leads the team with five assists. Arizona’s goaltender, Darcy Kuemper, has a GAA of 2.70 and his save percentage sits at .900. Arizona is scoring a respectable 2.60 goals per game and are only allowing 2.80 goals a contest. Personally, ARZ @ STL is the most stackable game of the slate. This one feels like 4-3 or even a 5-4 final tonight! Let us stack the game! Will you join me?

Winnipeg Jets 2

Winnipeg Jets

Kyle Connor L2 & PP1
Paul Stastny L2 & PP1
Blake Wheeler L2 & PP1

The Calgary Flames travel with Winnipeg this evening to face off against the Jets. Winnipeg is scoring around 3.40 goals per game yet only allowing about 2.90 goals. The Jets have been playing fast and have been absolutely smothering opposing defenses recently. Look for a full-blown offensive tonight in Winnipeg. The Jets win by a pair here with a 5-3 final.

As daily fantasy sports have grown and become more popular so have the strategies and conversation. The DFS boom has been a welcomed change to the landscape of seasonal fantasy sports.

I started using Fanduel in September 2013. Hockey was the first real DFS sport I dug into. Along the way it has been a lot of trial and error. The beauty of sports betting and DFS is that everyone has their own process. Everyone thinks they have it all figured out. Yet not everyone is willing to share or help others. Which is fine! You are entitled to you own opinion or sense of anonymity.

That is where we differ. For almost eight years I have gained this vast knowledge of DFS and could not be more excited to share my own personal process. Support group meetings have loads of corny cliches and catch phrases. I could implement a ton of them here but the most important one to me given the topic is “we can only keep what we have by giving it away.”

Personally, I can only do so much with this information. I decided long ago to help others and give what I have learned away! Tonight, the hockey schedule is only two games. Two games and four teams. Smaller slates have always been my bread and butter. Hopefully, you trust me enough to take this journey with me tonight!

Tampa Bay Lightning 1

Tampa Bay captain Steven Stamkos

Ondrej Palat L1 & PP1
Brayden Point L1 & PP1
Steven Stamkos L1 & PP1

It is no surprise that Steven Stamkos is the leading goal scorer for Tampa Bay. Steven has four goals and is leading the team in points (9). Tampa Bay is scoring an average of 3.50 goals per game and only allowing 2.25 goals per game. The Tampa Bay Power Player is scoring 24.0% of the time! Which might not seem like much but its good for 1st overall. While their penalty-kill has been functioning around 80.0% of the time. In layman’s terms, Tampa has been awesome to start the season and it will not change tonight against the Wings. TB wins 5-1 or 6-2. Stack TB!

Tampa Bay Lightening 3

Tampa Bay Lightning

Blake Coleman L3
Yanni Gourde L3 & PP2
Barclay Goodrow L3

I will not carry on about Tampa Bay here. Just know they could easily score 4+ goals and their third line will be getting in on the action for a noticeably cheaper price.

Boston Bruins 2

Boston Bruins

Nick Ritchie L2 & PP1
David Krejci L2 & PP2
Craig Smith L2 & PP2

Philadelphia welcomes in Boston tonight for what should be a fun and incredibly competitive game! Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask is 3-1-1 with a GAA (goals against average) of 2.50 and his .889 save percentage has held steady. Boston is scoring around 3.30 goals per game and allowing an average of 2.50 goals per game. If you notice with BOS2 we get exposure to their PP1 and a chuck of their PP2. Looking at Boston’s power-play I love the fact they are scoring 30.6% of the time. BOS @ PHI is the more stackable game tonight. Expect a 4-3 or even a 5-4 final tonight in Philly.

Philadelphia Flyers 2

Philadelphia Flyers

Oskar Lindblom L2 & PP2
Kevin Hayes L2 & PP2
Travis Konecny L2 & PP2

The Philadelphia Flyers are looking for their fifth consecutive victory tonight. Flyer goalie Carter Hart is sitting on a 3.61 GAA and a save percentage of .895. Philadelphia is scoring around 3.60 goals a game while giving up around 3.20 goals per game. The Flyers power play is scoring at a 29.7% clip. Again, this one should be fun and fast paced and destroy the o/u 5.5 goals.

It is no secret that TB1 and BOS1 are the plays tonight. That makes them chalk. With the Main slate only being two games everybody under the sun will be using these two lines. Which is fine but what complementary stack will use with it? TB3, BOS2 and PHI2!

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

Better late than, ever right? I will not bore you with some sort of catchy or witty opening here. The first puck drop is only hours away so let us get right into it!

The biggest news so far today is the postponement of the New York Islanders vs the Buffalo Sabers. As of right now the rest of the schedule is good to go!

Winnipeg Jets 2

Winnipeg Jets

Kyle Connor L2 & PP1
Paul Stastny L2 & PP1
Blake Wheeler L2 & PP1

The Jets lost to the Canucks on Monday night 4-1. However tonight they host the Calgary Flames. While goalie Connor Hellebuyck has saved 90.7% of the shots he is faces, while allowing only 2.67 goals per game. The Jets have been good a defense while they have been quite balanced on offense. The Calgary Flames will struggle here. I am stacking WPG Jets.

Chicago Blackhawks 2

Chicago Blackhawks

Dominik Kubalik L2 & PP2
Dylan Strome L2 & PP1
Brandon Hagel L2

The Blackhawks won last time out 3-1 win for the Chicago was good. They looked exceptionally good. This year Chicago has been weak offensively and only scoring about 2.33 goals per game. The Blackhawks defense gives up, on average, 2.70 goals per game. Tonight, they host Carolina who has been strong all season on offense. I am not saying Chicago wins here but the case for five or six goals total here tonight could be made.

Montreal Canadians 1

Montreal Canadians

Tomas Tatar L1 & PP2
Phillip Danault L1
Brendan Gallagher L1 & PP2

Vancouver heads to Montreal tonight to play on back-to-to back nights. Same case for the Canadians! Expect a battle of the backup goaltenders and plenty of shots, points, and goals here. I have looked forward to stacking Canucks all season so far but MTL1 is just too perfectly priced tonight!

Edmonton Oilers 2

Edmonton Oilers and Connor McDavid

Dominik Kahun L2
Leon Draisaitl L2 & PP1
Kailer Yamamoto L2

Edmonton scored eight goals last game and it is no secret how good they are. Tonight, the Ottawa Senators travel to Edmonton and everyone’s eyes zoomed in right to it! Easy now! I have a feeling that EDM may have some tired legs. The Oilers will win without any trouble, but I feel as is a 3-2 final is in store. Stack EDM2 and move on.

We made it through the month of January! Now we set our sights on making it past February and March. During this time in Michigan, it is cold, dark, and dreary. Over the years I have learned to keep busy with several activities.

Daily fantasy sports, to me, is the best way to kill time and really enjoy myself! I was introduced to NHL DFS in 2013 and I have not looked back. I would spend hours researching and filling notebooks with ideas and plans. There was a time where I truly felt I held the key to solving NHL DFS. This just in, I have not cracked the code.

In turn, I came up with several great strategies to put you in the best possible spot to win consistently! We are now several weeks into the NHL season and everything is starting to take shape. Most lines are locked in now and the skaters accumulating chemistry! Hold on my friends cause it’s about to get good!

The NHL schedule tonight is only five games. It is my personal sweet spot. Here are six stacks I love tonight!

New York Rangers 1

New York Rangers

Mika Zibanejad L1 & PP1
Pavel Buchnevich L1 & PP1
Alexis Lafreniere L1 & PP1

The New York Ranger host the Pittsburgh Penguins Monday evening. Last time out PIT beat the Rangers in overtime. The Penguins ended up winning the game by a 5-4 score. On Saturday, these two teams combined for 72 total shots! The Rangers have tried to tighten up on defense recently but keep falling short. Tough to get a firm handle on this one but the o/u is at 6.5 goals. I believe the under hits and the final score will be around 3-2 in favor of the Rangers.

Calgary Flames 2

Calgary Flames

Johnny Gaudreau L2 & PP1
Sean Monahan L2 & PP1
Andrew Mangiapane L2 & PP2

The Calgary Flames have scored around 2.86 goals per game. On defense the Flames are giving up about 2.43 goals per game. While the Jets are only scoring 3.63 goals per game. The power play for the Jets has converted at a clip of 19.4% on the year. Defensively Winnipeg is allowing 3.13 goals a game. The o/u tonight is hovering around 6 goals. As far as projections for tonight contest it is split right down the middle! I am going to give the bump to CGY seeing how they have stepped up on defense as of late.

Montreal Canadians 2

Montreal Canadians

Jonathan Drouin L2 & PP1
Nick Suzuki L2 & PP1
Josh Anderson L2

Keep an eye open for Josh Anderson’s status tonight. He was sent home Saturday with flu like symptoms. However, Josh did test NEGATIVE for COVID-19 and again Sunday. If Josh is inactive there will be an update to Hot Puck right before puck drop!

Montreal is hosting the red-hot Vancouver Canucks tonight. Montreal is scoring about 4.40 goals per game and giving up about 3.30 goals per game. Jonathan Drouin is the leading the Canadians with 7 assists. Vancouver has ONLY allowed ONE goal per game their last four while scoring a combined 20 goals! Stacking the Canadians tonight is very risky given how well the Canucks have played. Yet, that’s why I am enamored by them! Low ownership and cheaply priced, an NHL DFS player dream!

Tampa Bay Lightning 2

Tampa Bay

Alex Killorn L1 & PP1
Anthony Cirelli L1 & PP2
Tyler Johnson L1 & PP2

The first line for Tampa is where it’s at tonight but they will be massive chalk. So highly owned that there is no real advantage to be gained. I have no issue with TB1 we just need an off the beaten path complementary stack. Tampa Bay is scoring around 3.17 goals per game and fully expect TB to put up 4+ goals tonight.

Boston Bruins 3

Boston Bruins

Trent Frederic L3 & PP2
Charlie Coyle L3 & PP2
Craig Smith L3 & PP2

Boston skates into Washington to face off vs the Caps. Another massively favorite stack tonight will be BOS1 without a doubt. With an o/u of 6 total goals I think it best to stack the less popular lines. If you look at BOS3 you are also getting exposure to the second power play unit. In what I expect to be a 4-3 or 5-4 final this one should be a free for all!

Vancouver Canucks 1

Vancouver Canuks

J.T. Miller L1 & PP1
Elias Pettersson L1 & PP1
Brock Boeser L1 & PP1

Vancouver has scored 20 total goals their last four games yet has allowed four goals during that time. When I say they are hot that means hot-hot! Brock Boeser is leading the team with eight goals and Boeser is also leading the team it total overall points (11). The Canucks are scoring around 3.86 goals a game and I fully expect them to light the lamp at least four times tonight. The Vancouver first line is easily my favorite stack on the slate!

It is an exciting time friend! As the NHL season starts to heat up so will Hot Pucking stacks!

Have you ever heard about the “grind”? Or how about the “hustle”? If you are on social media often then you cannot miss those terms. Buzz words. What do they mean? In all honesty they have become terms of endearment.

If you were at the grocery store and some old lady came up to you and said, “I really respect your grind!” what would you do? It would be shocking no doubt, but I would take it as a sign of respect. Hustling and grinding have become synonyms for hard work and even diligence.

That was just a long-winded way of telling you how much I love the grind. Sometimes people fold under the pressure of long days of writing, researching, and broadcasting. While others thrive on it. We are now two weeks into the NHL season, and I am right on the cusp of starting the long seasonal grind of hockey DFS. Let’s buckle up, dig in and have some fun!

Boston hosts the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight. Last time these two teams got together Boston absolutely owned the faceoffs with 46 wins. Boston also had 36 shots on goal. Well Chris, what does that mean for fantasy purposes? Boston was physical from the start and had their way with PIT. I believe that carries over again tonight. Boston will stifle the Penguins offense while the Bruins 3rd and even 4th lines get in on the action!

The Wild are home tonight playing the Los Angeles Kings. Last time these two got together was mundane. The Wild only scored once and lost to LA 2-1. In fact, Minnesota was dominated in most facets. Only mustering 33 SOG (shots on goal). The only positive was the fact MIN out hit and won more faceoffs. Looking ahead to this evening, the Wild have started to hum in the offensive zone. The o/u tonight is at 5.5, standard, although I do believe they score three times. Perfect time to roster MIN1 while they are deemed, “boring”.

The Vegas Knights welcome in the St. Louis Blues. Their last match-up was nothing shy of outstanding! The shots, hits, penalty minutes and faceoffs won were so evenly matched! However, tonight I believe it will be a little more one sided. In the Golden Knights favor.

The Canucks have scored around 3.73 goals per game so far. Their power play is hitting about 26.5% on the year. While their defense is giving up about 4.45 goals per game. Which does not mean much here given how awful the Senators have played this season. I would not be against some OTT1 stacking action here tonight. What I am really after is the VAN PP1. Which also gets us exposure to their top line.

New York Islanders 1

Jordan Eberle L1 & PP1

Mathew Barzal is leading the Islanders in goals scored with three, three assists and points and six points overall. New York is scoring an average of 1.83 goals per game. In laymen’s terms, that is not good. Every projection for this game I could find, NYI @ WSH, has the Capitols winning big. By several goals. If we look closer, you can see the Caps are giving up 3 goals a game and are only killing off 74.1% of their penalties. When we look at NYI1 all three skaters play on the team’s power play unit. I believe the flood gates open for them in this one. To the tune of two power play goals and two more even strength for a final score of 5-4. I love the idea of stacking WSH2 as well. The more I investigated this game the more I love a full game stack!

Nothing wild to say here. ARZ1 is only in play for salary relief tonight. Their first line will also give us some exposure to their PP1 unit. Unfortunately, the Anaheim Ducks are around the bottom in killing penalties. The final tonight will be around 3-2 or even 2-1. So, tread lightly knowing ARZ1 is strictly for salary relief.

Here are some core sample lines I am going to be using. Keep in mind these are for entertainment purposes only.
