DFS - NHL - DraftKings - NHL Lineup - Main Slate - 8/12/2020
Wednesday, August 12th, 2020 at 3:00 PM
Happy Wednesday everyone!
What a crazy night of NHL action yesterday as we saw an incredible 5-OT thriller between the Columbus Blue Jackets & Tampa Bay Lighting.
I was happy at first as we loaded our defenseman in that game, however, it really cost overall as our Bruins stack was destroyed with their game be postponed until this AM. I am still curious why either site just did not wait until this AM as the BOS/CAR game was not on their main slates today but is sometimes the breaks you get when playing DFS. I think I am probably just a bit bitter as our Bergeron/Pasternak/Marchand line all score a point in the 1st period today…haha.
Let us look at our DraftKings lineup which features a 4-game slate and starts at 3:00pm!
Kicking off our lineup, we are going to pay up for a 3-man stack of Colorado Avalanche in their match-up agianst Arizona.
For the Avalanche, we are going to go with Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog, and Cale Makar.
We are going to stack the 2nd line of the New York Islanders in their match-up agianst the Washington Capitals.
Washington was in the middle of the pack in terms of goals allowed during the regular season this year (3.06 GA/game) and I just love the value the Islanders bring with their 2nd line of Brock Nelson, Josh Bailey, and Anthony Beauvillier who were all were outstanding in their recent series agianst the Florida Panthers.
At our 2nd defenseman spot, we are going with Montreal’s Shea Weber who can pile up points in a variety of ways.
In goal, we are going with the St. Louis Blues Jordan Binnington who I think will be lights out agianst Vancouver tonight!
Rounding out our team, we needed to find some value and we’re going with the Blues Oskar Sundqvist who despite being part of the Blues 4th line, has seen about 15 minutes of ice time since play resumed in the bubble and does have double-digit goals & assists on the season.
