TORONTO vs. DETROIT – Toronto has a lot of fire-power but they have also been bleeding defensively in almost every game, relying on their high-powered offense to score their way out of problems. Detroit has had a hot start to the season but is starting to look a little shaky. On paper, this game looks like an interesting matchup but I don’t have confidence in either team regarding DFS play Targets: Matthews-Rielly (Stack), Mantha, DeKeyser, Toronto Maple Leafs 3 (Punt)NEW JERSEY vs. BOSTON – New Jersey has been bad this season and it’s coming as a bit of a surprise given all the improvements they made over the offseason. They have yet to record a win in their 2019-20 campaign and it looks like they’ll have to wait a little longer to achieve that feat as they are going up against a strong Bruins lineup in TD Gardens. Boston also has a strong defensive core alongside their deadly (but expensive) top line. Targets: Boston Bruins 1, Coyle
ST LOUIS vs MONTREAL – St Louis has gotten off to a hot start this season and has benefitted from solid goaltending courtesy of Jordan Binnington. They will faceoff against a Montreal side that is among the leagues worst in goals allowed per game. So far this season the Blues have yet to lose on the road and Montreal has yet to win at home. Targets: St. Louis Blues 2, Pietrangelo
FLORIDA vs NEW YORK ISLANDERS – Both the Isles and the Panthers played last night and both lost on the road. Tonight they will meet up at Nassau Colesium and although the initial instinct is to favor the Panthers, neither team has been playing particularly well and, like Montreal, Florida is among the leagues worst in Goals allowed to start the season. Interesting enough, backup Sam Montembault will get his first start of the season tonight. He posted good numbers last season and it will be interesting to see how he performs. Targets: Beauvillier-Toews, Hoffman, Dadonov, Montembault (Punt)
COLOMBUS v CAROLINA – Again both these teams played last night and tonight will be a battle of the backups. In the tendy “tale of the tape” the two goalies are absolutely mismatched. Carolina will be turning to James Reimer who is a perfect 2-0 to start the season and will be entering the night sporting a .940 SV%, on the other side Columbus’ starter Elvis Merzlikins lost his only start of the season and coughed up seven goals in the process, I will be targeting Carolina against the rookie netminder tonight. Targets: Carolina Hurricanes 2, Haula, Teravainen, Reimer
WINNIPEG vs CHICAGO – This game could get out of hand. Neither goalie has been particularly impressive to start the season with both teams allowing an average of 3.6 goals per game. However, both teams are also scoring in abundance to keep themselves in games. With that being said this matchup is tonight’s ideal game stack. Targets: Winnipeg Jets 1-Chicago Blackhawks 2, Pionk, Maatta
WASHINGTON vs DALLAS – Although upon first look it seems as though this would be Dallas’ game, in actually the stats paint a much greyer picture. Neither team is scoring goals in abundance and Washington has had a positive record on the road while Dallas has struggled at home yet to secure a win. That could change tonight, however, I believe there are better plays to target in tonight’s large slate. Targets: Dallas Stars 2
PITTSBURGH v MINNESOTA – Although Pittsburgh has been mired by the injury bug to start the season that no match for the horrible case of awfulness that has struck the Wild to start the season. The Wild have lost their opening three games in regulation and have are among the leagues worst in goals allowed, allowing Pittsburgh to maintain viability despite the injury struggles. Targets: Crosby-Simon, Zuccarello
ARIZONA vs. COLORADO – Arizona was able to take advantage of a struggling Malcolm Subban in their last match but will be in a much tougher spot tonight against the Aves who are 3-0-0 this season, the Avalanche may call upon their backup Pavel Francouz to tend the twine tonight. Although this imparts a certain added risk to Colorado, Francouz did post solid numbers in his two NHL appearances last season along with solid stats in the minors last season with a .918 SV% and a 2.68 GAA. Targets: Kadri, Makar, Colorado Avalanche 1, Oesterle, Soderberg
PHILADELPHIA vs VANCOUVER – No matter what continent they’re on, the Flyers have been lights out in the NHL Regular season. After an opening salvo in Prague, the Flyers followed up with a 4-0 shutout for their home opener, the young Hart’s first of his career. Although the Canucks tore into the Kings they were the Kings, it is unlikely they will have a similar result against a more formidable opponent in the Flyers. Targets: Philadelphia Flyers 2, Provorov, Hart, Hughes, Miller
CALGARY vs VEGAS – Both teams are very dangerous offensively but also have solidified defensive cores and are among the leagues best in goals-against average. This game could work as a game stack but it will be a tight squeeze. Along with the Flyers and Canucks game, this will be the final game of the night. Targets: Calgary Flames 2-Vegas Golden Knights 2 OR Calgary Flames 2-Vegas Golden Knights 1
