NHL DFS: The Slapshot – Feb 19th

Who is the idiot that only scheduled five NHL games on the night that there are no NBA games?  Boring as hell I tell you.  Tonight also welcomes in the LA Kings on a back to back and they’re traveling down to take on the Arizona Coyotes, so that should be quite the barn burner for sure.

CENTERS

  1. Auston Matthews (Leafs)
  2. Elias Lindholm (Flames)
  3. Bo Horvat (Canucks)
  4. Anze Kopitar (Kings)

WINGS

David Pastrnak (Bruins)

It’s the Bruins whom I would rush to load up on tonight and not the Leafs, Flames or Kings.  Boston will remain without Brad Marchand but that is not a big deal as it’s the RW position which the Senators have been horrible against, ranking 27th over the last month and 31st on the season.  This is a prime hatty spot for Pastrnak and we’ll want to correlate the full line in tournaments.

Brock Boeser (Canucks)

Both teams have been playing more towards the under of late, so proceed with caution on this game unless doing a full game stack.  But Vancouver should have the advantage & the top line is a good target.

  1. David Pastrnak (Bruins)
  2. Brock Boeser (Canucks)
  3. Johnny Gaudreau (Flames)
  4. Michael Bunting (Leafs)
  5. Phil Kessel (Coyotes)

DEFENSE

  1. Charlie McAvoy (Bruins)
  2. Rasmus Andersson (Flames)
  3. Drew Doughty (Kings)
  4. Tyler Myers (Canucks)

VALUE

  1. Brayden Schenn (Blues)
  2. Ilya Mikheyev (Leafs)
