Jake Hari



Free NHL FanDuel picks cheat sheet with the best daily fantasy hockey plays and optimal NHL DFS lineups using Awesemo's lineup optimizer Schenn Tarasenko

Even though the NHL scheduled today’s games poorly, there is still a 3-game slate on both sites. The Bruins and Lightning will look to close out their respective series at home today, while the Capitals and Blue Jackets will have a Game-6 regardless of the result today. Awesemo will give his take on each stack, then I (Tommienation1) will follow up with some additional analysis.

WSH1: Ovechkin-Kuznetsov-Wilson ($18,400 DK/$20,500 FD)

“The Capitals have a team total over 3, and their top line should be put in great spots tonight on home ice.”

This line has been great all series, posting a 62.4 Corsi For Percentage, 30.5 Scoring Chances For per 60 minutes, and 11.8 High-Danger Chances For per 60 minutes at even-strength, creating as many shots as any line these playoffs. Kuznetsov and Ovechkin will play on the top power-play again, and they’ll be in a high-event matchup with CBJ1 at even-strength. This line has been a tough fade all series and it’s no different today. I’ll be trying to get most, if not all, of this line in my GPP lineup.

TB3: Killorn-Cirelli-Gourde ($12,500 DK/$12,700 FD)

“The Lightning have the highest implied total of the night, but their top-6 forwards are very expensive on both site. If you’re looking for cheap exposure, drop down the third line in tournaments.”

This line has quietly played very well in the first 4 games of the series, posting a 54.4 Corsi For Percentage with 31 shot attempts and 15 Scoring Chances in 31 minutes at even-strength. They’ll get to go against the Devils’ 3rd and 4th lines at even-strength, and both Killorn and Gourde will get time on the power-play. On a slate where you’ll need some value if you want to pay up for WSH1, BOS1, CBJ1, TB3 allows you a lot of flexibility with your roster.
