Last nights FanDuel NHL DFS Picks did a few damage that is notable in GPPs and were excellent.
We saw a few high possession with all our three-man Capitals stack, but it wasnt worth the fade because the trio of all both Nicklas Backstrom, Alex Ovechkin and John Carlson mixed for five assists and 11 shots in the night to go along with a power play assists also.
The rest of our lineup saw low possession and it paid off. Our three-man Blackhawks stack acquired a power play goal from Alex DeBrincat who was only 6.8percent owned. While a power play helper was led by Erik Gustafsson deBrincat notched an assist. Finally, Jonathan Toews ripped the overtime winner in only 4.1% owned while in addition, he fired three shots on goal and blocked one as well. Manufacturing at low ownership.
Our lost-cost one-off wingers really gave or lineup a big shot. Brett Connolly felt to go along with four shots on goal. Alex Chiasson notched an assist, three shots on goal and a blocked shot at just 2.6% owned.
Our goaltender Robin Lehner had a big night, turning aside 37 of 39 hats shots and picked up the win on Toews overtime winner.
It was our very best lineup of the season for this point and I will look to stay hot on tonight slate that is major!
C — Derek Stepan (ARI) — $5,600 vs. OTT
The Arizona Coyotes are popular at this time and they have gotten their offense going after tallying nine goals over their past two matches. After a quiet start to his season, Derek Stepan was a large portion of the 5-2 win over the Nashville Predators on Thursday as he notched a pair of assists to the power play — along with three shots on goal. The 2 helpers marked his first points since scoring a goal at the season opener of the club back on October 3rd, so it turned out to be a very long time. In a healthy season, we all know what to expect from the Stepan. Id expect that was finished for each of the preceding five seasons Stepan to return into the mid-50s after notching just 35 points in an season last year. He listed between 53 and 57 factors for five seasons while we must anticipate around 15-20 goals for the play-making centre. Stepan is the teams top center at both even strength and on top power play unit since he gets set to take on a Senators team that is tied for 24th with 3.50 goals against per game this year with a 16th-ranked penalty kill that sits at 80% on the season. I really like Stepan hitting tonights upside.
C — Tyler Johnson (TB) — $4,900 vs. COL
The Lighting and Avalanche get together tonight to get a battle of the titans in Tampa Bay, as well as the Dragon will have the upper hand in this one as they will confront an Avs team that is playing their second game in as many nights tonight following a hard-fought 5-4 overtime win in Florida last night. The Avs have been good this year, but they did slide just a bit against a good Florida Panthers offense last night and this is that a treacherous back-to-back contrary to the very offense in the NHL. The Lighting will get backup goaltender Pavel Francouz last night, after Philipp Grubauer notched the win. Francouz was good this year, however that came from a struggling Coyotes crime at the time. This is very much a whole other creature against those studs. Input Johnson who is off to a good start this year with 2 goals and four points in seven games to go along with 14 shots on target. Johnson is the groups second line centre at even strength while he also centers the power play unit. Tampa Bay has averaged 3.71 goals each game in the early going with a power play thats clicked at a healthful 26.3%, and so Ill search for them to secure more crime going tonight against the Avs.
W — Phil Kessel (ARI) — $7,200 vs. OTT
We have seen Kessel proceed on some epic streaks thats why he is being loved by me within this matchup tonight against the humble Senators and get hot. Kessel got off the schnide with two objectives in Thursdays triumph, each of which came on the power play after going five matches without a wish to start his Coyotes tenure with. Ahead of that matchup, Kessel had just two assists in five games, so Im searching for him to stay hot. After their electricity play a pair of targets in Thursday, the Coyotes power play is now clicking in a whopping 29.4% for the year, good for seventh in the NHL. Lets remember that Kessel has been one of the power play actors from the NHL during the past few seasons after posting 42 power play points in the 2017-18 year followed by 36 man benefit points last season. Hes bagged 12 power play markers in each of those seasons. He has recorded three of his four points for this point and fitures to be a weapon to the power play alongside a good play-making center in Stepan. Lets look to continue to fire plenty of pucks on goal and get back on the shoresheet again in this .
W — Clayton Keller (ARI) — $6,000 vs. OTT
Completing our three-man Coyotes pile is Keller wholl emphasise both Kessel and Stepan around the top line of the team in addition to the best power play unit tonight. After submitting 23 goals and 65 points as a beginner from the 2017-18 year, Keller fell to just 14 goals and 47 points in his sophomore effort last year. Ive got the utmost of confidence which Keller will smash those 47 points this season playing on the top line alongside a participant in Kessel who is annually around a point-per-game participant in addition to a talented high power play unit. He is off to a fine start using five points in six games, but all those points have come in help form as he searches for his first goal of the season despite putting 15 pucks on goal for this point. We do know he likes to take the puck as hes submitted at least 200 shots on target in each of the first two seasons in the NHL, and so the very first aim of the season isnt far off, whatsoever. Like Kessel, Keller also loved a night on Thursday, tallying a pair of power play assists in the win over the Predators. The matchup is a fine one and I believe that this Coyotes line gets the upside to perform some significant damage in this one tonight.
W — Yanni Gourde (TB) — $4,700 vs. COL
Continuing our Lightning stack is Gourde that will line up alongside Johnson on the teams second line as well as the next power play unit. It is interesting as Keller did last year, because Gourde saw a similar production fall. After breaking with 25 goals and 64 points in the 2017-18 season, Gourde dropped to 22 goals and 48 points each season, representing an almost-identical points fall to Keller. Maybe the actual Gourde is somewhere in between both totals, but I enjoy the value upside were getting with him at this cost against an Avalanche team which may be rather vulnerable to their backup goaltender in goal and having played just 24 hours earlier. Through seven games this season, Gourde has to discover the back of the web. What we do know about him is that we arent likely to have a huge amount of shots on goal as he averaged just 1.6 shots per game during the previous two seasons, but hes also kept a high shooting percentage at that time with a mark of 17.4% for his career. Before Gourde finds twine and tonight sounds like an appropriate matchup for it to occur, it wont be long.
W — David Pastrnak (BOS) — $8,600 vs. TOR
There isnt anyone sexier in the NHL right now as the Bruins get set to have the rival Maple Leafs tonight in Toronto than Pastrnak that has scored six goals and an assist. Even though Pastrnak is an elite player that has terrorized numerous clubs he saves his very best work for all these Maple Leafs. At 15 regular season matchups with Toronto, Pastrnak has tallied 11 goals and 19 points to go along with 59 shots on goal, or 3.9 shots per game. He notched another 2 goals and six points in seven playoff games last season after tallying a couple of goals and 13 points in seven postseason games against them in the 2017-18 season. Add it up and Pastrnak has tortured the Maple Leafs and 38 points over 29 matches . He scored 38 goals and notched 81 points in just 66 games last season and has eight goals and 13 points in just seven games this time around. He is shooting in an unsustainable 32% at the moment, but with how hot he is right now and the way hes played with the Maple Leafs, I do not mind paying the top cost within this matchup tonight.
D — Mikhail Sergachev (TB) — $4,300 vs. COL
Completing our Dragon pile is Sergachev who is having a nice season so far in what might possible be a breakout year for the young defenseman. We knew this kid was special when he tallied 40 points in 79 games as a rookie logging only 15:22 of ice time daily as a 19-year-old with this typical ice time symbolizing a minuscule amount for a defenseman. He did not like quite as powerful of a sophomore season with 32 points last year despite increasing his average ice season to 17:55, nevertheless hes managed to notch six assists in seven matches this season to go along with nine shots on goal and 11 blocked shots as well. He doesnt take a lot of shots, however considering that the skill level, we understood that his first goal of the season isnt too far off. Hes a real good power play defenseman at which he will skate on the next unit alongside Gourde along with Johnson with two of the six helpers coming on the man advantage. Tonight will indicate Tampas return home from a six-game road trip and just their second home game of the year after opening the year with five goals from the Panthers in Amalie Arena. They are an amazing house offense and Ill try to squeeze a ton of value out of the trio tonight.
D — Torey Krug (BOS) — $5,800 vs. TOR
Completing our Bruins mini-stack is Krug who oversaw whats a catastrophic Bruins power play and one which ranks second in the NHL with a huge 38.1% clip right now. The Maple Leafs are right in the center of the league using a 15th-ranked punishment kill at 80.8 percent, but we have observed this Bruins man benefit brutalize the Maple Leafs in each of the past two postseasons, therefore we know theres big-time upside down with Krug whos an integral part of this group. Case and point is all five of Krugs assists this season coming on the man advantage while hes added an even-strength goal for six points in seven games to go along with 12 shots on goal. In a healthy period, Krug is a fantastic bet to eclipse the 200-shot barrie he has done in every one of the previous two seasons that are healthy and has as many as 244 in a season as. He is off in his free agent walk year this time round to a start and listed 53 points in just 64 games last season. One of the more underrated offensive defensemen in the NHL, theres a real strong chance Krug and Pastrnak produce.
G — Antti Raanta (ARI) — $7,500 vs. OTT
I am really not concerned about ownership as Im sure Raanta is place to observe a whole lot of it. The Senators enter this one rated 28th with just 2.33 goals per game on the season while the Coyotes rank second with only 1.83 goals against per game. Darcy Kuemper has shot over the strong side of this timeshare in goal between himself and Raanta with some nice work while Raanta was on the shelf for a lot of the past two seasons, for example almost all of last year, as tonight marks just the second start of the season for Raanta. He took on a Colorado crime on the street in his lone start — otherwise known as one of the toughest matchups potential — did well to afford three goals in a 3-2 loss, with the winner. Allowing two regulation goals into the Avs on the street is surely a strong outing, though his .906 Svpercent from that outing may not show it. The Coyotes are favored to win this one at chances that were -220 that were enormous, therefore the win upside down is that there in spades tonight. I will take the win upside and the shutout upside from the goaltending matchup with this masterpiece tonight.
