Scouting the NHL DFS: Tue 11/7

NHL DFS – Tuesday, November 7th



ISLANDERS … One of the premier games of the night for DFS is the Oilers traveling to NY to take on the Isles tonight and the matchup betwen McDavid and Tavares … The Oilers have struggled this year and defensively are giving up too many PP goals to start the year.   I don't think the JT line is a lock for a hat trick tonight like some other nights but they're definitely one of the best stacks out there and so I'd want to strongly consider exposure to them at home tonight where they get the final line change….. 

The Law firm of Tavares, Bailey and Lee is here to win!




PREDATORS …. I fricken love the Preds tonight.  On the road at Columbus who played last night and played poorly.  Korpisalo is likely in net for Columbus today and Smashville should put 5 goals past him tonight.  The sneaky play here is that Forsberg is on the 2nd line with Sissons and Smith but it's the Nashville Power Play who could really produce.  Johansen-Hartnell-Forsberg are together on PP1 and that's where I am looking tonight as I get cross line exposure and PP1 upside.





PENGUINS … The Pens are rested and welcome the Coyotes who are on a B2B and once again on the east as I mentioned last night.  Coyotes played well against a struggling Caps team last night but should get torched today.  Crosby should be a popular choice but it's Connor Sheary who I think has a huge game tonight for the Pens. 




CANDIENS  …. Looking to save money and get exposure to arguably the best Winger on the slate?  Max Pacioretty has really started to heat up lately and is shooting at a good pace + he gets a team on a B2B who plays really sloppy on the road.  Danault-Shaw-Pacioretty make for a nice high upside affordable stack tonight.

Mike Smith (FD: 8400) … Mike Smith has won three in a row at home and draws the Canucks who played last night….  What's the catch here???   Oh, right, he might not face 30+ shots and so the high score upside really depends on him letting in 2 or less goals.  I'm pretty confident that he can do that and he should get plenty of goal support tonight.  Smitty for me on FD and in cash.

Robin Lehner (FD:  7300) … You can go cheap with Lehner or Charlie "Leibrandt" Lindgren [Kudos to you if you get the reference] who is projected to start for them tonight for a bad Montreal team (even though they're playing Vegas).  Uhhh.  I'll take Lehner at home versus a struggling Caps team thank you very much…  Lehner should see a ton of shots tonight and Buffalo will play well at home vs the Caps.  Lehner is my value goalie tonight.

Matt Murray (FD:  9000) … Murray is always popular and almost always some I hate to roster.  If you want to go the safe route you can go him and pay up.  I am not high on it tonight so I am fading, but he's understandably going to get you an ok score.
