NHL DFS Breakdown (3/8)

Happy Thursday everyone! Tonight, we have a huge 12 game slate with some great matchups and too many great plays. Lock is at 7:00 PM ET/6:00 PM CT.  I will list my plays of the day without much detail due to the amount of people and time constraints but if you want further details on the plays then you need to be in our slack chat! Here are the 12 matchups tonight and their start times (Eastern Time):

WPG@ NJ 7:00pm
COL@ CLS 7:00pm
PHI@ BOS 7:00pm
MON@ FLA 7:30pm
NYR@ TB 7:30pm
BUF@ OTT 7:30pm
VGK@ DET 7:30pm
ANH@ NSH 8:00pm
CAR@ CHI 8:30pm
NYI@ EDM 9:00pm
STL@ SJ 10:30pm
WAS@ LA 10:30pm

This is a huge slate and there are so many great options in play tonight. I recommend playing a few different lines tonight for this one. I personally have 1 line that I use for cash games and then I will have 2 to 3 various lines for GPPs when the slate gets this big. Just choose some top plays throughout the article and then pick some good plays or value plays to make your lineup fit. Below are my plays of the day at each position. I like everyone that makes it into my articles but the top plays are obviously my favorites. Now lets move into the plays of the day.
