It’s back to a bigger slate tonight with 12 games around the league and ten of them begin by 8 PM EST or earlier, so expect lots of early fireworks. I’ll have just another short quick cheat sheet for today with Rob Geriak having a full detailed breakdown in The Point Shot.
LINE LOCK OF THE NIGHT
Eric Staal – Jason Zucker – Jordan Greenway (Minnesota Wild)
The Wild welcome in the Flyers on a B2B and without Carter Hart in net, which means that the little Cinderella slipper the Flyers had going on is about to completely fall off and get run over by the rest of the league. The Wild are rested here and should carve up the Flyers off that physical game vs the Penguins last night in which they pepper the Pens but couldn’t break through.
TOP STUD ONE OFF
Gabriel Landeskog – Colorado Avalanche
The Avalanche have gone from being everyone’s favorite line to stack to virtually un-owned each slate. The reason is because of the hefty price tag that all three players are carrying and just that nobody wants to pay $22,200 for just three players in their lineup. It’s the most expensive stack by far and nobody wants to play one offs anymore. This has opened up all the Avs as great one offs tonight and with the value I get on the Wild second line I can get both Landeskog and MacKinnon in the same lineup.
TOP VALUE ONE OFF
Brayden Schenn – St. Louis Blues
John Klingberg – Dallas Stars
Jordan Binnington, Blues
I will likely have Dubnyk to correlate with my Wild stack, but Binnington has been really good lately and the Blues overall are playing well and should win at home tonight. Also, Jimmy Howard is your upset goalie of the night. The Red Wings have owned the Predators.
