Another small slate tonight and again it is early in the season so play light. Kickman had a few great calls last night but Edmonton wet the bed on us. Good luck tonight and lets cash!!

TOP TEAMS TO TARGET

  1. OTTAWA SENATORS – The Ottawa Senators have started the season hot winning both games they have played this season. The have been winning ugly but have been scoring goals which is the name of the game in DFS hockey. They scored 5 and 4 goals in their last two games both going extra time. Erik Karlsson looks to be in top form bad news for the rest of the league. Senators win another close one tonight in the motor city.
  2. PITTSBURGH PENGUINS – OK, the Penguins are here just to make Cappy happy (JK). The Penguins will still be without Syd tonight but that should not slow them down tonight against the Avalanche. Look for veterans Malkin and Letang to lead Pittsburgh to a victory tonight. I see 4 goals tonight from the Penguins.
  3. WINNEPEG JETS - The Jets host the Boston Bruins after splitting their first two games. After traveling to Minnesota and losing a close game the return home where they score 5 goals on opening night. The Jets are loaded with skaters that can put the puck in the back of the net, so play them!

KICKPICK HAT TRICK

  1. DAVID PASTRNAK, Boston Bruins FD $5,300; DK $5,700: David is off to a hot start this season. He has 3 goals and 2 assist in the first two games. And even if he’s not scoring he’s shooting, 13 shots so far this season. Six shots a game is the same as a goal in Fanduel scoring, David is a must play tonight
  2. CHRIS KRIEDER, New York Rangers, FD $6,300; DK$4,900: Kreider is just like the above KICKPICK, he is a shooting machine with 14 shots this season. Chris like David above is finding the back of the net on his shots too. Kreider has 2 goals and 2 assist in the two games to start the season and should continue that tonight.
  3. RYAN DZINGEL, Ottawa Senators, FD $3,500 DK $2,700: If you are looking for a great cheap play Ryan is your guys. Dzingel is seeing sometime on a line with Zibanejad and Hoffman which is never bad. Ryan has a goal and an assist so far this season, he will have a good chance to add to that tonight in Detroit.
