Scouting The NHL DFS - Thursday, March 9

Find the top teams to target and the best players to plug in your DraftKings and FanDuel NHL DFS lineups!

Tonight we have a large 11-game slate in NHL DFS on DraftKings and FanDuel. Don’t be afraid to use a few of my "best of the rest teams." Good luck and let's cash!


  1. TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS – The Maple Leafs (29-22-14) host the Philadelphia Flyers (31-26-8) in a game that features two teams that need this win to continue their postseason hopes. The Leafs are only one point out of the playoffs and with a win tonight, they could move into the second wild card spot. Toronto has the sixth-ranked scoring offense in the NHL and is getting production from their centers, needless to say I have listed all of them on my tip sheet. This is a home game that the Leafs need and should win.
  2. OTTAWA SENATORS – The Senators (33-22-6) travel to Arizona to face the Coyotes (23-35-7) after winning last night in Dallas. The Senators are playing some of their best hockey of the season and have their eyes squarely on the playoffs. The Coyotes on the other hand can’t wait for next season. Look for Ottawa to win 5-2 tonight.
  3. NEW YORK RANGERS – The New York Rangers (43-22-2) travel down the Atlantic coast to play the Carolina Hurricanes (26-27-10). The Hurricanes have lost two of their last three games to two of the worst teams in the NHL. Tonight they play one of the best teams in the NHL in the Rangers. I look for them to mail it in again tonight.

Best of the Rest: Minnesota Wild and Chicago Blackhawks
