Fantasy Hockey: Scouting The NHL DFS - Monday, March 27

Cash in on DraftKings and FanDuel with FSWA Hockey Writer of the Year James Capone AKA Mr. Pucks!

We are winding down the regular season, and there will be some exciting games. A few teams will be looking to play spoiler while others will look to better their chances for the top pick. Time to look at tonight's slate and pick a winning team.

Mr. Pucks Profound Three

Nikita Kucherov (TBL) - Wing - ($8500 FD / $7900 DK)

Kuch gets a tough game against the Blackhawks this evening, but it is a home game. He is looking to push his team closer to a playoff spot. With seven goals and two assists in his last four games, he owns the ice. I see him getting another two goals and an assist against the Hawks.

Johnny Gaudreau (CGY) - Wing - ($7500 FD / $6600 DK)

Don't be surprised if the Flames are chalky. I am willing to attack that chalk with Johnny Hockey. He has a goal and six assists in his last four, and I feel he extends it to five games. I see him getting a goal and two assists while taking five shots on net.

Artemi Panarin (CHI) - Wing - ($7000 FD / $6600 DK)

Panarin has been a constant for the Blackhawks this season. He has scored points in 11 of his last 15 games, and he will continue to pad his stats against the Bolts. I expect him to lead all scorers in the game with two goals and two assists plus six shots on net.

Mr. Pucks Sleeper Play

Jussi Jokinen (FLA) - Wing - ($4600 FD / $4000 DK)

Jokinen is a role player with skills. The Panthers are pushing hard to clinch a playoff spot, and Jussi knows what to do. I feel he gets a goal and two assists tonight. His ownership is going to be very low and his upside high. Great GPP play.

Teams To Target

Buffalo Sabres - I like the Eichel line as well as the third line in GPP. Not big on their defense with no Risto.

Calgary Flames - I mentioned they will be chalk. I will have a lot of exposure to the Gaudreau line. Also consider Giordano or Hamilton on defense.

Tampa Bay Lightning - The line of Palat-Point-Kucherov will provide a ton of upside. Also like Namestnikov-Drouin as a nice pivot. Hedman on defense.

Chicago Blackhawks - I feel this is a game people will second guess due to the Panthers play of late. I will target Panarin-Hartman in both cash and GPP. Kane is pricey to do a full line stack. Also consider the line of Panik-Toews as a safe play. Love Keith and Oduya on defense.

Also Consider: NSH 1, Stl 1, NYI 1, Carolina 1&2
