NHL DFS Picks March 9th, 2019

NHL is back and we are going to be looking at some DFS options for tonight’s slate. We have an 8-game slate, so there are plenty of options across the board and we should see plenty of scoring.

Also, always, always check to make sure the goalie you pick is confirmed as the starter. Nothing worse than making a lineup, and the goalie not playing. There are plenty of good sources on twitter, and websites where you can get that information.

Regardless if I’m playing cash or GPPs, I always have some stacks going in my lineups. In hockey, most goals are scored with assists, so we want to target players who are either on the same line, or on the same power play unit, or both. So these stacks will include both forwards and defenders while making sure they see plenty of ice time together.

Jordan Eberle, Brock Nelson, Anders Lee

This is the first forward line for the Islanders who are at home and come in as -141 home favorites and a team total set at 3.22 goals. They are facing off against the Flyers, who have a 53.69 Corsi Against over the past month, which is the worst of any team on the slate. This means they are giving up far too many shot attempts per game, which should present plenty of opportunity for the Islanders to rack up plenty of fantasy points. The Flyers are also allowing 3.38 goals per game over the past month, so we should be looking to attack this defense anytime they are on the slate. The Islanders are all very affordable tonight and you can consider using them in either format, since the floor of points should be there for cash games and the multi-point potential is certainly there against this bad defense. All of them are very affordable across the industry, which also helps if you decide to stack them up in GPPs, so you can add another team stack in that lineup.

Max Pacioretty, Paul Stastny, Mark Stone

The Golden Knights are on the road in Vancouver and come in with the highest expected Corsi For on the slate set at 50.1, so we are firmly going to be looking at them in all formats tonight. They are-173 road favorites and have an implied team total set at 3.40, which should tell you enough about how bad the Canucks are looking, or how good the Golden Knights are. This is the second forward line for Vegas and are decently expensive, but have plenty of upside tonight. In terms of power-play correlation, Stone is on the first unit, while the other two are on the second unit, which is a solid spot to be in, since you will have good exposure to the best parts of the offense. The Canucks have a 49.5 Corsi Against over the past month, so this is another team we should be looking to attack. This is the last game on the slate, so we could be looking at a spot with a bit of lower ownership, something that is always beneficial in tournaments.

Tuukka Rask, Goalie, Boston Bruins

The Bruins haven’t lost a game in regulation since January 19th. This streak is simply amazing and it won’t be stopping tonight since they are at home and come in as -450 favorites against the lowly Senators, who are the worst team in the league. Then Sens only have an implied goal total set at 1.71, which is insanely low and in theory, puts Rask in a spot to potentially pick up a shutout. He is one of the most expensive goalies on the slate, but you are paying up for the safety of the win and the slight chance of a shutout.
