It’s time once again to capitalize on the big contests over at Draft Kings. I’m going to play numerous cash games tonight, and even a few GPP’s. I hope to see you there, and with a Front Office ($) membership, you can see my lineup!

Thoughts and Musings: 

The Winnipeg Jets host the Toronto Maple Leafs in what should be a high scoring game. The Jets are soaring under Head Coach Paul Maurice. They are giving up their bodies to block a tremendous amount of shots (30 in fact, in their win over the Ducks!) and playing some really good hockey as a unit. The Jets have been using Olli Jokinen – Devin Setoguchi and Dustin Byfuglien as their checking line lately, and they’ve done an excellent job. I expect the majority of Toronto’s goals to be via the power-play. Phil Kessel and James van Riemsdyk are plays for me tonight. That being said, I’m stacking Jets in a lot of lineups. I love Evander Kane tonight, as well as Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele. I’m going to be streaming that line in the vast majority of my lineups. Prediction: Jets win 5-2

The Washington Capitals travel to Montreal for a meeting with the Canadiens. This will be a back-to-back for both of these teams. This one can go either way. Montreal is going to win if Alex Ovechkin sits, but they still might get the victory even if he does play. I like Carey Price in cash games tonight in lineup that i couldn’t fit Sergei Bobrovsky into. I’m only comfortable playing Max Pacioretty and P.K. Subban from this game – unless Ovechkin plays, then I like him as well. Canadiens win 2-1.

The Buffalo Sabres travel to Columbus for a meeting with the Blue Jackets. This will be an easy win for the Jackets, who are on an absolute tear right now. The problem (fantasy wise) with the Jackets is that you don’t know who the scoring will come from because all four lines can put the puck in the net. The only lock from this game is James Wisniewski and of course, goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky. I would roll out Ryan Johansen, Brandon Dubinksy and Cam Atkinson in cash games and Matt Calvert, Mark Letestu and R.J. Umberger in GPP’s (since they are cheap, and you can stack them with expensive Penguins). Blue Jackets roll 4-1.

The Dallas Stars host the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight. Marc-Andre Fluery is a bit risky tonight. I wouldn’t use him in cash games. I believe the Sidney Crosby – Chris Kunitz line will face Cody Eakin and company, while Evgeni Malkin – James Neal – and Jussi Jokinen face off against the Tyler Seguin line. Neal and Niskanen are playing their old team, so I like both of them more than usual tonight. Feel free to roll any Penguins you wish tonight. I prefer the Neal – Malkin – Jokinen line though.
