NHL Grind Down: Saturday, April 6th

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.

With today being the last day of the season and most teams having nothing to play for it may at times be a tough thing to weed through today’s slate. Tampa had clinched home ice advantage long ago nut they are within one win of setting an NHL record for wins. That didn’t stop them from mixing up the lines a bit as Steven Stamkos skating with Yanni Gourde and Tyler Johnson while Ondrej Palat jumped up from the second line to skate with Nikita Kucherov and Brayden Point who have combined for 81 goals and 137 assists so far this season. Stamkos and his 97 points always make for a decent one-off regardless of opponent or venue. Defenseman Victor Hedman is hoping to suit up for the play-offs which leaves Ryan McDonagh and Mikhail Sergachev as the biggest threats from the point. McDonagh has amassed 45 points so far while Sergachev has grabbed seven points over the last six games.
