FanDuel NHL Lineup Advice: Tuesday 11/12

Nov 12, 2019

Price is in a great spot again with Montreal likely to pick up another win

Slowly but surely, things are starting to shake out in the standings. The Sharks are looking to build momentum off two consecutive wins. The Sabres are looking to get back on track after five straight losses. Edmonton is hoping to keep rolling and never look back. Let’s take a look at a jam-packed Tuesday night in the NHL

Center

Evgeni Malkin (PIT): $8,000 @ NYR
The Penguins will be without Sidney Crosby tonight at Madison Square Garden against the Rangers. Evgeni Malkin always seems to step up in Crosby’s absence, since back in 2012 when he won the Hart trophy in Sid’s injury-shortened season. Malkin will certainly be the focal point of the Penguins offense and will bump up into the top power-play unit. The Rangers continue to surrender an absurd 36.2 shots per game and find themselves in the bottom third of the league in goals against. New York will turn to the capable Alexandar Georgiev in goal, but their issues in the defensive end should be ripe for Malkin to exploit.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (EDM): $6,300 @ SJS
After going 18 games with just one goal, Nugent-Hopkins’ puck luck is starting to turn around. He has four points in his previous two games, firing seven shots on goal in his last start. While the Sharks may be starting to stabilize with two consecutive wins, they still find themselves bottom five in the league in goals against. The Oilers continue to roll, and RNH is locked into one of the most lethal power plays in the league. For that reason, I am using him at this price.

Wing

Jonathan Drouin (MTL): $5,300 vs CBJ
Drouin is putting together a nice season thus far. He has seven goals and 15 points in 17 contests, pacing for the best season of his career. Of late, he has seven points in his previous seven games. Enter the Columbus Blue Jackets who have surrendered 3.43 goals per game and will turn to the young Elvis Merzlikins in goal, who is winless in three starts with a 3.91 GAA and .882 sv%. I expect Drouin to be on the score sheet this evening in a juicy matchup.

Defense

Matt Grzelcyk (BOS): $3,500 vs FLA
With Torey Krug declared out for tonight’s contest with Florida, it is Matt Grzelyck that will take his spot on the top power-play unit. I was surprised Charlie Mcavoy was not the first choice, but Grzelyck is more than capable to flourish in this spot. With an uptick in minutes on Sunday, he chipped in with an assist on a Brad Marchand third period goal. I expect Grzelyck will be up over 20 minutes of time on ice while quarterbacking the lethal top power play. For that reason, he should outperform his price tag.

Goalie

Carey Price (MTL): $8,600 vs CBJ
With wins at a premium in the DFS goaltender scoring system, I often like to find the evening’s biggest favorite. The Canadians are the biggest choice at the sportsbook tonight, favored at -175 to defeat the Blue Jackets. Carey Price has been solid if you consider that he’s currently top five in the league in shots faced. He has a 2.77 GAA and .914 sv%. The Blue Jackets are stumbling of late, scoring only six goals in their previous four games. This is a nice spot for Price.
