Thursday, February 8th

We have ourselves another terrific night of National League Hockey action on deck, with nine games on the schedule. The Tampa Bay Lightning, Minnesota Wild and the St. Louis Blues are tonight’s biggest favorites, and the Nashville Predators are the only team playing on the tail end of a back-to-back.

GOALTENDER

NOTE: Make sure to check the RotoGrinders Starting Goalies Page page prior to game time, to confirm that the goalies listed below are starting.

Devan Dubnyk, Minnesota Wild – Minnesota Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk is once again at the top of cash game list on this Thursday evening. Despite allowing over 32 shots against per game, the Wild continue to suppress scoring chances and high-danger scoring attempts as well as any team in the National Hockey League, simply allowing a lot of harmless shots on goal. This allows Dubnyk to pad his saves totals on a nightly basis, which certainly works for us daily fantasy players. Also working in Dubnyk’s favor tonight is the Arizona Coyotes’ lack of scoring (30th overall in goals per game), putting the Wild’s goaltender in the best spot tonight for both a win and a shutout.
