DFS - NHL - DraftKings - NHL Lineup - Main Slate - 8/6/2020

Hope everyone is having a great Thursday!
We got some exciting NHL action today as we have a great 5-game slate that starts at 2:30pm today!
For our lineups today, we’re focusing on two offensives that have some outstanding fire power in the Toronto Maple Leafs & Washington Capitals.
For the Maple Leafs, we’re going to pay up for their top-line in Auston Matthews, Mitchell Marner, and Zach Hyman. This line combined for a respectable 39.1 DraftKings points in their 3-0 victory over Columbus on Tuesday and I think they have another solid game today.
For the Capitals, I think they have some of the best value on the slate. Tom Wilson is an absolute steal at just $4,900 and I like combining both Nicklas Backstrom & Jakub Vrana on their 2nd line.
We don’t know if their top defenseman, John Carlson, is going to play today, but I don’t mind reaching for some value in Dmitry Orlov who saw 27 minutes of ice time yesterday while picking up an assist.
Unlike our FanDuel lineup, we didn’t have the salary to pay up for Toronto’s Morgan Rielly, however, I like the value that Calgary’s Erik Gustafsson brings at just $3,700.
In net, we’re going with Robin Lehner in his match-up agianst the St. Louis Blues.
Here is our NHL DraftKings lineup:
C: Auston Matthews
C: Nicklas Backstrom
W: Mitchell Marner
W: Zach Hyman
W: Jakub Vrana
D: Erik Gustafsson
D: Dmitry Orlov
G: Robin Lehner
UTIL: Tom Wilson
