A very nice four-game slate tonight in the NHL, which means there are several solid options to play in DFS. I’m riding home teams tonight so I like Tampa Bay as well as the three teams provided below. Good luck and let's cash!
TOP TEAMS TO TARGET
- WASHINGTON CAPITALS – The Capitals (44-13-7) host the Dallas Stars (26-29-10) in DC tonight. The Caps are a lock to make the playoffs while the Stars on the other had have a lot of work to do if they have any hopes at playing postseason hockey. Washington should use their No. 3 offensive scoring attack to abuse the Dallas Stars, who rank 28th in goals against. Look for the Capitals win 4-to-1 tonight with the lone Dallas goal being scored by “KICKBERG”.
- OTTAWA SENATORS – The Senators (33-22-6) host the Boston Bruins (34-25-6) tonight in Ottawa. Both teams are in the thick of the playoff chase and are back-to-back in the standings. Both teams would make the playoffs if the season ended today. Ottawa and Boston are very even in the stats so I’m going with the home team in this matchup.
- WINNIPEG JETS – The Winnipeg Jets (30-30-6) desperately need a win tonight when they host the San Jose Sharks (32-27-5) in Winnipeg. The Jets can score in a flurry, as they rank 8th in the NHL in goals for per game with 2.97, but are near the bottom in goals against averaging 3.11. So this game could be a shoot out with the Jets soaring above the Sharks in overtime 5-to-4.
