We have a nine-game slate tonight, and oh boy, we are coming down to the wire in these playoff races. It’s truly a great time of the year if you are a hockey fan, and we will have some great playoff action starting in about a week. So let’s focus in on teams who still have something to play for and rack up the points.

Center

Mark Scheifele (WPG): $7,800 @ MON
Scheifele is the first part of a Jets stack we are looking at. They are in a fantastic spot tonight since they are up against the Canadiens, a team which gives up over three goals per game. This stack is focused on the first forward line but also has all members on the power-play, so plenty of offensive upside for them tonight. He has four points in his last four games and takes over two shots per game.

William Karlsson (VGK): $7,400 @ VAN
Karlsson is super hot right now, and with him being up against the Canucks, who are one of the worst defensive teams in the league, this is an ideal spot. He has nine points in his last four games and is seemingly unstoppable right now. He is the first part of this Vegas stack we are looking at, which is the first forward line and the first power-play unit, so plenty of correlation to maximize points.

Wing

Blake Wheeler (WPG): $7,200 @ MON
Wheeler has 12 points over his last 10 games and is really showing some great form as we are heading into the playoffs. He averages over one point per game for the season, is taking over three shots per game, and is also on the first power-play with Scheiflele. When they get the scoring going, we are looking at some big numbers from them, and with this favorable matchup we could be in for that kind of night.

Kyle Connor (WPG): $5,000 @ MON
Connor is the young rookie for the Jets, who is playing up on this top forward line. He is a bit cheap, but still offers good value, and adds to the stacking upside. Connor has two points in his last three games and takes over two shots per game. It’s an easy matchup for him, and a nice spot to build some offensive confidence before the playoffs.

Jonathan Marchessault (WGK): $6,800 @ VAN
Marchessault is another player who is on a hot streak, with 10 points in his last eight games, and with this easy matchup, he is in a spot to continue that. He’s also on the top forward line and the first power-play unit, which should give them plenty of shared ice time to rack up points against this weak Canucks defense.

Alex Tuch (VGK): $3,800 @ VAN
Tuch is super cheap but has been producing points as of late. He has three points in his last four games, and for him being under $4K, that is really hard to pass up. On the first forward line and the first power-play, for one of the best offenses in the league, you really can’t go wrong with his price, and not to mention how great his matchup is tonight. Great punt type play for any format.

Defense

Josh Morrissey (WPG): $4,000 @ MON
Morrissey has been moved up to the first defensive pairing, and while he isn’t on the power-play, he is still bringing some scoring to the table. He has a two-game goal streak right now, and for his price, that can’t be beaten. He is taking over two shots per game, along with blocking over two shots per game, so there’s value from multiple categories.

Nate Schmidt (VGK): $4,100 @ VAN
Schmidt is on the first defensive pairing and the second power-play unit, so there’s some good shared ice time with the rest of this stack. He has only one point in his last five games but is taking over one shot per game, and blocking almost two shots per game. He’s not a true offensive threat, but in this favorable matchup, he could easily fall into one, since he is playing about 20 minutes per game.

Goalie

Keith Kinkaid (NJ): $8,300 vs. NYR
Kinkaid comes in as a -230 favorite at home tonight, and with the Devils being able to control their own destiny, this should be an easy win for them. That’s right, if the Devils can win a few more games, they will be in and don’t need help from anyone else. Kinkaid has five wins in his last six starts, and now up against a weak Rangers team, he should be able to pull out the win at home.
