Ottawa @ N.Y. Islanders

We start the slate with two awful teams Ottawa being currently the worst teams in the NHL on the road or anywhere in general. Islanders a team you just can’t predict nightly but are generally a better team at home when Trotz gets to dictate his match ups.

Crazy stat on the game Islanders at home have HDCF/60 14.13 and HDCA/60 9.68
Is it sustainable? Not likely but crazier things have lasted a year in the NHL

Senator line to target

Tkachuk White Stone 14.9DK 15.9 FD

This line has been pretty fun to watch wouldn’t surprise me at all when White gets behind the Islander D tonight and scores on a breakaway.
They have great numbers at home CF/60 58 and HFCF/60 13. I’m guessing they will be matching up mostly against the Nelson line.

Islander line to target

Beauviller Barzal Bailey 14.1DK 16.4 FD

My favourite line to use tonight they don’t have crazy possession numbers but i’m a big fan of how Trotz will use them. Sheltering them against Ottawas Depth lines should be fun to watch Barzal should feast on them.

Montreal @ Florida

This has the making to be quite the gongshow game. Its Floridas first game against Montreal since the Domi sucker punch, but I imagine Florida will be more focused on getting the win tonight trying to get themselves back into a playoff spot. What better way for Florida to face a struggling Niemi.

Crazy stat on the game Niemi has a 4.14 GAA .876% SV%

Canadiens line to target

Gallagher Danault Tatar 14.6DK 17.7FD

Honestly I was never a big fan of Danault but its hard to deny the kind of success this line brings day in and day out getting up there in Backlund Tkachuk third wheel kind of dominance. On the road they put up CF/60 79 and HDCF/60 17.5 just unbelievable numbers with empty net upside.

Panther line to target

Huberdeau Barkov Dadonov 19.7DK 20.8FD

This line seems the best bet to cash on a blow out as long as there matching up against the Domi line I will ok paying the price for the upside. The Domi line plays at such a high tempo for and against. It will help getting Byron there instead of Shaw but how much can it really change the lines play style for trading chances. You get full PP1 upside with this line in a game where Shaw/Domi can take a dumb penalty at any minute. This is my favourite expensive line of the night.

Toronto @ Columbus(B2B)

This Toronto team is just so talented to watch on the daily even when I don’t stack them I can’t help but watching their games because they are so entertaining. Columbus has been playing better but I still seeing Toronto taking this game unless Sparks lays an egg.

Crazy stat of the game

Toronto currently owns a 13-5-1 record on the road second best in the NHL

Toronto line to target

Johnsson Tavares Marner 19.1DK

No Hyman make me like this line so much more they will likely match against the Dubois line like they did previously games this season. The Tavares line has been money this year even on the road posting CF/60 70 and HDCF/60 17. You get the PP and empty net upside only Bob can stop this line from going off.

Columbus line to target

Bjorkstrand Jenner Anderson 12.7DK

Easy to say taking the Dubois line but I think there is value in the Jenner line most likely matching up against the Kadri line. The punt can be worth it to save salary to get better D on this slate. Biggest thing is limited ice they will get which will be around 13-14mins. Jenner and Anderson have been great all season long I wouldn’t be surprised to see the trend continue

Top lines I like in order

TOR Tavares

Cheap lines I like in order
NYI Barzal

Bet365 bet of the night

Barzal to score 3 or more at 101/1
