With the NBA All-Star break starting, the NHL is front and center tonight, and a nine-game schedule hits the ice. There are only a couple teams that are big favorites tonight and a lot of games that should be close, which makes things a little more difficult for building cash game lines. However, there are a lot of teams wiith the potential to go off for four or more goals, and that makes things very interesting for daily fantasy hockey tournament play.
Today’s article will provide analysis for the teams in action, top teams to target for daily fantasy, recommend players for FanDuel, and even sample lineups that could be used to help build ones for tonight’s play.
Top Teams to Target Tonight for Daily Fantasy Hockey
New York Islanders – The Islanders lead the league with most goals per game at home (3.5) and tonight they face a Leafs team that is on a downward spiral, losing 12 of their past 13 games. The Islanders should score at least a few goals tonight and the top line of John Tavares, Anders Lee and Josh Bailey has the key players to target, and you could also look to Frans Nielsen and defenseman Travis Hamonic.
Recommended Plays for FanDuel
TOP GOALTENDER PLAYS
Dustin Tokarski ($6,600) – Tokarski is the top VALUE goaltender tonight and he’ll definitely be a popular play in tournaments. At this price and considering the matchup, Tokarski could even be considered for cash games which allows you to load up on more offense. In limited action this season, Tokarski has filled in nicely for the Canadiens with a handful of wins and a 2.55 GAA.
TOP LEFT WINGER PLAYS
Zach Parise ($7,200) – Parise has gone four games without a goal which is very rare for him. The good news is that his price has dropped as a result and he is in a great spot to break his scoring slump tonight against the Panthers who are not nearly as good a team on the road. In the previous meeting between these teams earlier this year, Parise scored and had 4 shots in a 4-1 Wild win.
Anders Lee ($4,900) – With Lee on the Islanders’ top line and number one powerplay unit (playing with John Tavares), he is a great play on most nights and with the Isle’s as a top target team this evening, Lee is an automatic play in cash game lineups and as part of a stack for tournaments.
