NHL DFS Breakdown (2/6)

Hello everyone! Last night was an extremely crazy 4 game slate. Super high scoring games and high cash lines for NHL DFS with top scores being in the 300s!  Tonight is a bigger and better slate with 11 games and some favorable matchups. Lock is at 7:00 PM ET/6:00 PM CT. Tuesdays are my busiest day of the week so for today I will just include my projection for each player instead of going into detail. With it being a bigger slate, I recommend having 2 or 3 lines to throw into GPPs incase one goes off and the other one doesn’t and then having your main cash lineup for double ups, 50/50s, etc. I will include both Draftkings and FanDuel pricing for your convenience. Here are the 11 matchups tonight and their start times (Eastern Time):

VGK @ PIT 7:00pm
PHI @ CAR 7:00pm
ANH @ BUF 7:00pm
WAS @ CLS 7:00pm
VAN @ FLA 7:30pm
NJ @ OTT 7:30pm
BOS @ DET 7:30pm
MIN @ STL 8:00pm
ARI @ WPG 8:00pm
CGY @ CHI 8:30pm
SJ @ COL 9:00pm

This slate looks great tonight.  If you don’t have the bankroll to play multiple lineups, I suggest that you get some exposure from as many of the games that you think will be the highest scoring. My favorite matchups tonight are PHI@CAR, ANH@BUF, NJ@OTT, and ARI@WPG. At the end of the article, I will put down my favorite line stacks for the night. Now let’s move into the plays of the day!
