Buffalo PP1- Jack Eichel is the top play on tonight’s slate & anybody who gets time with him is also in play. Eichel is riding a 9 game point streak and has been unstoppable at home. In 13 home games, Eichel has 23 points, including 12 goals!
With Rasmus Dahlin injured, we get a tremendous value in Henri Jokiharju on the top PP unit. Jack Eichel is my top priority on the slate and Jokiharju is my top value on the slate. Lock em both in!
Vegas PP2- Vegas has been extremely frustrating this year. Their depth can make them tough to predict and they just haven’t been as good as anybody predicted. Yet, their advanced stats continue to be amazing. Suggesting that they have been getting pretty unlucky when it comes to scoring goals and a upswing is coming.
One line who has remained fairly consistent all season has been the 2nd line of Mark Stone, Paul Stasny and Max Pacioretty. They were briefly seperated but with an injury to Cody Eakin, they find themselves back together. As a bonus, the 2nd Vegas line is also on the same power play unit together. Vegas is taking on a Rangers team that is giving up 50.5 Corsi against and continues to give up a ton of high danger shots with a slate high 11.14 high danger chances against per game.
NYI PP1- After a scorching hot streak, the Islanders have been struggling as of late, losing 3 of the last 4 with the offense falling way off. Today presents a great chance to get back on track against a dreadful Detroit team who is giving up 3.64 goals a game at home.
Following the offensive struggles, the Islander have shaken up their lines and power play units. The result? The return of the 2nd line of Beauvillier/Nelson/Brassard that was so good for the first month of the season. They also are all listed on the top PP unit tonight with Barzal and Pullock. Love being able to get a full line with power play correlation.
Adam Fox- I have been so high on Fox all season and he has found his way to this article space many times. Fox has been a tad up and down, but he is back on a heater with points in 4 of his last 5. His high shot volume gives him a nice floor as well.
Patrick Kane- The streak continues. Points in 15 straight, including goals in 3 straight.
Cam Fowler- Fowler and the Ducks get a juicy matchup against a Kings team giving up 4.17 (!) goals per game on the road. Fowler is playing well lately with points in 4 of his last 5.
Ryan Getzlaf- We just mentioned how bad the Kings are on the road. Getzlaf has been the best Ducks player all season and has points in 7 of his last 10 games and has 20 points in 27 games this season.
Semyon Varlamov draws the start for the Islanders against a Wings team averaging a measly 2.07 goals per game at home. He comes in below 8k on Fanduel. John Gibson actually comes in even cheaper on Fanduel than Varlamov and gets a Kings team who has averaged an even worse 2 goals per game on the road. For some Draftkings value, you have Jake Allen who has been really good lately and comes in at 7.8k on Draftkings. Lastly we have Linus Ullmark at only 7.4k on Fanduel. I prefer to get up to Varlamov or Gibson as Ullmark hasn’t been very good lately.
