NHL Grind Down: Tuesday, March 13th

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.

Remember, these writeups are done prior to lineups being released, so make sure to check our Starting Lineups page to ensure the recommended options are playing.

Boston Bruins at Carolina Hurricanes

Boston Bruins Carolina Hurricanes
Tuukka Rask Cam Ward
Record Record
43-16-8 30-28-11
Team Stats 3.33 2.54 21.96 82.44 Team Stats 2.62 2.99 19.23 78.26

We have seen Boston add scoring depth at the trade deadline, which has been a key component to their recent success, as they have been dealing with injuries to Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, along with the suspension to David Backes. While Backes is back in the lineup after serving his suspension, Bergeron remains out of the lineup tonight. Brad Marchand participated in morning skate and being listed as a game-time decision.

With both team’s respective solid possession numbers, and injuries plaguing the Bruins, we may see spread out scoring in this contest. While injuries have opened up some interesting value, both teams will likely miss the cut for me while making GPP lineups.
