Looking at the matchups today it is hard to ignore the Edmonton Oilers/Chicago Blackhawks game which features the Oilers facing a must-win game tonight.

Currently, both these teams have the highest implied scoring totals on the slate (Edmonton: 3.5; Chicago: 3.1) and so far over the three games, we have seen 26 total goals.

DON’T FORGET TO CHECK OUT OUR NHL FANDUEL LINEUP FOR TODAY!!!

For the Oilers, we’re going to be paying up for what should be the most popular stack of the night in Connor McDavid, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and Oscar Klefbom. This trio is averaging 59.6 DraftKings points between the three of them throughout this series and as I expect a big offensive night from the Oilers so they can stay alive in the playoffs, I have no problem spending up for this trio tonight. We are also going to get some value in the Oilers Kris Russell who has averaged more than 10.0 DraftKings points per game over his last two games and I love the value at just $2,700 after he saw 21.2 minutes of ice time on Wednesday.

Staying in this match-up, we’re going to get some nice value from the Blackhawks 2nd line in Kirby Dach & Alex DeBrincat.

Dach has some of the best value on the slate as he plays on a dangerous line that includes both DeBrincat and Patrick Kane and you have to love the fact that he saw over 23 minutes of ice time in his last game. On top of that, he also has been playing with the top power-play unit so at his price, I think he is almost a must play.

DeBrincat has been averaging about 13.0 FanDuel points per game during this series and has shown his ability to have some big games as he comes into this matchup with 18 goals & 27 assists.

Cam Atkinson has been incredible for the Columbus Blue Jackets so far in their series agianst Toronto, topping 20+ DraftKings points in two of the three games. I’m bit a worry he might have some tired legs after seeing 30.1 minutes of ice time yesterday, however, he has too much upside at his current price of $5,300 to pass up on.

Arizona has had some success agianst a Nashville team that has struggled defensively all season and I think it continues today. I’m going to roster Clayton Keller who is the main threat on the Coyotes 2nd line and is also part of Arizona’s top power-play unit.

Staying with Arizona, I’m going with Darcy Kuemper in net agianst Nashville.

Here is our NHL DraftKings lineup:

C: Connor McDavid

C: Kirby Dach

W: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

W: Cam Atkinson

W: Clayton Keller

D: Oscar Klefbom

D: Kris Russell

G: Darcy Kuemper

UTIL: Alex DeBrincat
