TORONTO vs. TAMPA BAY – This matchup pits two of the best offenses in the league against each other in what promises to be a high scoring affair. Even though both teams have had solid goaltending their defensive-minded play has been rather questionable Targets: Matthews-Rielly (Stack), Point-Kucherov (Stack) DETROIT vs. MONTREAL – Montreal just lost an OT thriller last night to the Buffalo Sabres, while the Red Wings have recently had their season-opening flame put out by the Anaheim Ducks. Tonight’s matchup pits two original six teams against each other, both are very similar but I have to give Montreal a slight edge Targets: Domi-Suzuki, Larkin-Mantha, Kotkanemi-Armia
EDMONTON vs NEW JERSEY – Unfortunately for New Jersey they did not start the season as they would’ve hoped and it doesn’t look as though it will be getting much better tonight. New Jersey has had one major problem area coming into the season and that was goaltending, This has turned out to be a major problem and tonight the Devils will start Blackwood between the pipes, Mackenzie Blackwood has not been playing at an NHL level and will most likely be exposed by Edmonton’s high powered offensive options Targets: McDavid-Draisaitl-Bear
ST. LOUIS vs. OTTAWA – As mentioned last article, Ottawa is one of the worst teams in the league and coughs up a lot of goals because of it. The Sens proceeded to give up four goals en route to a 4-1 loss to the Rangers last Saturday. St. Louis won the Cup last year and won’t be taking it easy on the Senators who finished dead last. This is a true first vs. worst matchup Targets: St. Louis Blues 1, Blais-O‘Reilly-Faulk
WASHINGTON vs. NASHVILLE – Washington has been good this season but the Preds have had the scoring touch as of late with 13 goals through their first three games. With tonight’s game in Smashville, I gotta favor the home side. Targets: Nashville Predators 1-Josi, Rinne
MINNESOTA vs WINNIPEG – Neither of these two teams have been particularly impressive thus far this season but Winnipeg has arguably been the better side as the Wild have yet to record a win this season. The Jets, on the other hand, have scored four or more goals in three of their four games. Targets: Winnipeg Jets 1-Pionk
sSAN JOSE vs CHICAGO – Gonna have heavy shares of Chicago in this one as they are probably my favorite offense tonight. San Jose’s backup, Aaron Dell, who will get the start tonight, has been absolutely catastrophic over the past two seasons. He has statistically been one of the worst goalies in the NHL and his last game did not help his cause as he gave up three in a 3-1 loss to the Ducks. Targets: Chicago Blackhawks 2, Kane-Gustafsson
CALGARY vs DALLAS – Two strong teams with mediocre starts to the season. This game also works as a game stack, however, I will prioritize the Flames in this matchup. Targets: Calgary Flames 1-Dallas Stars 2, Tkachuk
ANAHEIM vs PITTSBURGH – The Ducks are off to one of their strongest starts in a while and Gibson has relatively held down the fort, only allowing one goal in each of his three starts while holding a SV% of .970. Pittsburgh will also be nursing some significant injuries Targets: Crosby-Simon, Isac Lundestrom, Devin Shore
BOSTON vs. COLORADO – Both teams have started their 2019-20 campaigns on a strong note and both teams present some good value options to explore, however, I think there are better options on this slate. Targets: Kadri, Makar, Heinen-Coyle, Kuraly
VEGAS vs ARIZONA – Pure mismatch here, Vegas should take this win walking away and score a lot of goals in the process. Vegas has averaged four goals a game and Fleury has held the door relatively shut with a 2.02 GAA and a .935 SV% Targets: Vegas Golden Knights 1, Glass-Pacioretty, Fleury
