NHL DFS: The Slapshot – December 9th

The Stars and Ducks are both playing 3 in 4 nights today while the Stars are playing 3 in 4 on a road Back-to-Back as well in L.A. tonight.

KEY SPOTS TO ATTACK

St. Louis Blues

Ryan O’Reilly, Brandon Saad, Jordan Kyrou, Torey Krug

The Blues are once again on my radar, being at home and facing a bad Detroit team.  They had a nice boost the other day against Florida and I would look for a really good PP unit right now to produce on home ice.  They’re rolling some line adjustments tonight, so the benefit for us is that the top full strength line is also correlating into the top power play line, and that’s where we shall go swimming.

Columbus Blue Jackets

Boone Jenner, Oliver Bjorkstrand, Zach Werenski

I will attack a young team playing 3 out of 4 on the road with a home rested Blue Jackets team.

Boston Bruins

Bergeron, Pastrnak

I do not have any data to back this up but I swear the Bruins are one of the more productive teams on a back to back.  While this game is nice on paper I don’t know that many will assume it’s a great smash spot for either side but the Oilers defense shoudl not go overlooked.  I really like Patrice Bergeron here.

FAVORITE GAME STACK

Wild vs Sharks

San Jose is a sneaky spot today.   This game is sure to have some good tempo associated with it and all the love going to a good Minnesota top line I wouldn’t be shocked if the Sharks had their usual sneaky home first period 2 goal spot here.

KEY ONE OFF SKATERS

Jonathan Toews … We want Chicago exposure.  The guy who skates with Patty Kane?  Yeah, that’ll do.

Kiril Kaprizov … He is one of the best young players right now and the Sharks are one of the worst teams against LW all season

Nate Schmidt
