Happy Thursday everyone!
Let us look at our DraftKings lineup which features a 4-game slate and starts at 3:00pm!
For our lineup today, we’re going to kick up by paying up for a 4-man stack of the Las Vegas Knights in their outstanding match-up agianst the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Blackhawks, despite winning their first series agianst the Edmonton Oilers, still allowed the Oilers to average 3.75 goals/game and that trend continues in their 4-1 lost to the Knights on Tuesday.
Las Vegas has some great value on their 2nd & 3rd lines, however, I’m going to be paying up for their top line in William Karlsson, Max Pacioretty, Mark Stone along with their best defenseman in Shea Theodore.
Staying in this match-up, I’m paying up for Patrick Kane as I think he becomes a bit more aggressive today on the offensive end despite his recent struggles. Kane is still one of the best in the game as he comes into this game with 33 goals & 51 assists and as he can go off for 7+ shots at any moment, I’ll take my chances for a big game from him tonight.
For some value, I’m going with the Bruins 3rd line who looked solid in their 4-3 victory yesterday agianst Carolina. Boston’s powerplay looked extremely rusty which is why I’m fading their top line and I’m going with some value plays in Charlie Coyle & Ondrej Kase.
We’re also going to get some value with the Dallas Stars in Miro Heiskanen & Denis Gurianov. Both Heiskanen & Gurianov registered points in their 3-2 loss on Tuesday and I think they have some nice value again tonight.
In goal, we’re going to go with the Blue Jackets Joonas Korpisalo. It feels a bit like we’re chasing with Korpisalo after his incredible performance, however, he for the most part looked extremely sharp and I just think there is too much value at his price of $7,300 to pass up on. Korpisalo should see a bunch of shots again but I think he is up to the challenge and will once again have a big game.
