Jump to Page 1 2

The RotoGrinders NHL Grind Down article will give you an in-depth analysis into the NHL schedule. This article will break down the numbers for every single game and give you analysis on which trends you can exploit. While matchups are a major factor in daily fantasy hockey there are plenty of other factors to consider such as injuries, salaries, and more.

The analysis should point you in the right direction, but it is still up to you to decipher the information and make your own selections. Hockey is an extremely high variance sport. The best choice is not always the right choice but following the trends will win you money over time.

Vegas Golden Knights at Philadelphia Flyers

The Golden Knights only problem would seem to be staying healthy as they are on top of the Pacific Division by 12 points with 14 games left on the schedule. Both James Neal and Reilly Smith missed the festivities in Buffalo on Saturday due to injuries and as of now it isn’t clear as to whether they will be back in the line-up tonight or not. As you can imagine this has put a crimp in the top two lines as Jonathan Marchessault and William Karlsson skated with both Tomas Tatar and David Perron as their wingers last game while Alex Tuch, Cody Eakin and Ryan Carpenter. Karlsson leads the team with 35 goals while Perron’s 45 assisst leads the team. Marchessault has the most points however as he has found the score sheet 65 times so far this season. Karlsson, Marchessault, tatar and Tuch were joined by defenseman Shea Theodore on the team’s top power play line that has scored just two goals in the last seven games. Colin Miller can also be looked at as a viable option on the back line as he has collected 35 points so far this season. The Golden Knights may be short-handed but that’s what the critics have been saying all year.

The Flyers have been one of the streakiest teams of the season and if last game is any indication of what will happen tonight then they should be starting another big winning streak. Their 81 points is good enough for third place in the Metropolitan Division for now as they set their sights on the top spot that is currently occupied by the Washington Capitals. Philadelphia is pretty cut and dried as Claude Giroux, Sean Couturier and Travis Konecny make up a strong forts line while Jakub Voracek and Nolan Patrick skate with Oskar Lindblom on the team’s second line. This basically leaves Wayne Simmonds as a one-off here as he grabs the extra power play time while skating on the third line with Michael Raffl and Valtteri Filppula.
