FanDuel NHL Lineup Advice: Tuesday (2/27)

We have a nine-game slate tonight, so the options across the board are strong and it should be a high-scoring night. A ton of trades happened yesterday since it was the trade deadline, so we will see some familiar faces on new teams.

Center

David Krejci (BOS): $5,500 vs. CAR
Krejci is the first part of a Bruins stack we are looking at tonight, who are in a spot to come away with the win. The Bruins are at home and have an implied goal total of 3.3, so we should be seeing some good offense from them. Krejci has two points in his last three games and has taken seven shots over that span. He is also on the second power-play.

Evgeni Malkin (PIT): $9,200 vs. NJ
Malkin is one of the best players in the league, and when you have the money for him, you shouldn’t pass him up. He has 13 points in his last six games, which is an astounding pace. Tons of production out of him every single night, and with him being on the second forward line and the first power-play unit, there will be plenty of chances for him to score. He takes about three shots per game and can really be used in any format.

Wing

Jake DeBrusk (BOS): $4,400 vs. CAR
DeBrusk is the next part of this Bruins stack, and he has one goal in his last two games. That goal broke a five-game pointless streak, and hopefully, he can keep it going, which should be the case, as the Bruins have an expected Corsi for of 46 tonight. That means they will be firing the puck a lot, meaning plenty of scoring chances for DeBrusk, who is also on this second forward line and the second power-play unit.

Rick Nash (BOS): $6,400 vs. CAR
Nash is the newly acquired forward for the Bruins and took five shots in his first game with his new team. This will be his first home game after the trade, and it’s a nice spot for him to record his first points as a Bruin. He is also on the second forward line but was seeing some time on the first power-play unit for the Bruins in his first game. While he was with the Rangers, he was taking about three shots per game.

Patric Hornqvist (PIT): $6,100 vs. NJ
Hornqvist just signed a nice long and expensive contract extension with the Penguins, so it’s a fun storyline to hop on if you think he is going to come out a bit more motivated tonight. He has one goal in his previous game, and with him being on the second forward line and the first power-play, there will be plenty of time for him to score some points. He takes over three shots per game and is blocking almost one shot per game.

Carl Hagelin (PIT): $4,200 vs. NJ
Hagelin is the riskiest part of this Penguins stack but still has four points over his last four games. He is also the cheapest member of this stack. He is taking about two shots per game, and shouldn’t be too highly owned on a slate this size, giving him some nice tournament upside.

Defense

John Carlson (WAS): $5,900 vs. OTT
Carlson is generally one of the better cash game options on defense, and tonight is no different. He is playing over 20 minutes per game, taking about three shots per game, blocking almost two shots per game, and has three points in his last two games. Carlson is also on the power-play, so there are plenty of different ways for him to add value to your lineup.

Justin Schultz (PIT): $4,200 vs. NJ
Schultz is on the second defensive pairing and the first power-play, so he has some nice correlation with this Penguins stack. He isn’t the most consistent player in the world, but now that he is on the first power-play, simply getting some exposure to Crosby and Malkin is something that cannot be passed on, given how cheap he is.

Goalie

Tuukka Rask (BOS): $9,100 vs. CAR
Rask is at home and a -205 favorite according to Vegas, so he’s more than likely to come away with the win. Rask, along with the Bruins, are one of the best teams in the league, and this should be an easier game for them to pick up the win. He has two wins in his last four starts and sees about 30 shots per game.
