DraftKings and FanDuel NHL Stacks of the Day for 4/30

As we’ve said time and time again, the key to GPP success in these 2-game slates is to get some lineup differentiation while still keeping the correlation. Power-play stacks, Defensemen stacks, and mini-stacks are all viable strategies when your options are limited. Here are the full lines we’re interested in tonight. Awesemo will start with the reasons why he’s on them, then I (Tommienation1) will follow up with some additional analysis.

TB1: Miller-Stamkos-Kucherov ($19,000 DK/$23,500 FD)

“The top Tampa Bay line will look to rebound after a disappointing Game-1 loss as they have the highest total on the night by a wide margin.”

The 6-2 score in Game-1 did not really tell the truth of how the Lightning played, as they doubled up the Bruins in shot attempts (71-35) and (almost) Scoring Chances (31-16) at even-strength. This top line saw a lot of time against the Bruins’ depth lines, which they dominated, posting a 70.4 Corsi For Percentage, outchancing their opponents 9-3 at 5v5. This line should have the puck on their sticks all night in Game-2, and the top power-play time that each of these three get doesn’t hurt their fantasy value, either. They make for a great stack on both sites if you can afford them.

SJ1: Kane-Pavelski-Tierney ($14,200 DK/$17,400 FD)

“With Evander Kane returning from suspension, this top line for the Sharks makes for a great value on DraftKings with a total near 3.”

Assuming Evander Kane and Joe Pavelski are reunited, the top line for the Sharks (“B” DK value) makes for a great stack in Game-3. Kane, Pavelski, and Tierney should get a break from the Vegas top line tonight, as the Couture line usually gets the most time against opposing top competition on home ice. They’ll go up against the 2nd and 3rd lines for the Knights at even-strength instead, which are both favorable matchups in my eyes. Donskoi being out for this game is a bit of a downgrade, but this is much too cheap for Kane, Pavelski and a serviceable third player in Chris Tierney.
