NHL Grind Down: Thursday, February 7th
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.

Los Angeles Kings at Philadelphia Flyers
|Los Angeles Kings||Philadelphia Flyers|

Jeff Carter is out of the lineup for the Kings making a thin and shallow offence even thinner and less potent. The Kings have virtually nothing going for them and despite the good matchup, I have trouble targeting this team on a slate this large.
Perhaps the way to exploit the Flyers is through their exploitable penalty kill. The forwards are tough to trust given that they are spread throughout the lines, but maybe Drew Doughty is a smart way to get exposure here.
