We have a small 5-game slate on our hands tonight that includes some intriguing options. I’ll provide you with the different high, mid and low-priced stacks I’m looking to target.
HIGH PRICED STACKS
CBJ 1: Cam Atkinson, Artemi Panarin and Pierre-Luc Dubois
Possible Add-on: Seth Jones
Columbus is going up against the Rangers. New York is a squad that lacks a lot depth. They also own a 45.27 CF% in their last 18, which explains why they have been one of the worst clubs since December. Additionally, Columbus’ top line will be put in prime situations to light the lamp. They possess a 54.15 CF% and average an even strength goal every 13 minutes. Look for Atkinson’s line will be put in situations where they can light the lamp.
CGY 1: Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan and Elias Lindholm
Possible Add-on: Mark Giordano
I continue to write about this line, and they do not disappoint. These three gentlemen have combined for 39 points in their last seven contests. I honestly couldn’t make that number up no matter how hard I tried. They are on an absolute tear and we all know they tend to receive favorable matchups when they are playing in Calgary.
WPG 1: Blake Wheeler, Mark Scheifele and Kyle Connor
Possible Add-on: Josh Morrissey
In my GPP article on Friday, I wrote about Winnipeg’s top line and it came through for us. They were able to record an even strength goal and did damage on the man advantage. I’m looking to target Winnipeg’s top line again tonight.
The Jets will be going up against the Ducks, which are riding a 10-game losing streak. They have not only had trouble lighting the lamp, but they have given their opposition too many opportunities to score. In the clubs last 17 games, they have given up a total of 200 high danger scoring chances. With the amount of talent Winnipeg’s top line possesses, you can expect to have many opportunities to put the biscuit in the basket.
FLA 2: Denis Malgin, Mike Hoffman and Henrik Borgstrom
Possible Add-on: Mike Matheson
The Malgin-Hoffman-Borgstrom trio has only seen 19 minutes of ice time together, but I love what I’ve seen out of them. They have done a good job keeping the puck in the offensive zone and generate scoring opportunities. Borgstrom and Hoffman are two guys with quick releases and Malgin is a guy that possesses puck skills and has improved his playmaking ability since entering the league. This trio is affordable and I’m looking for them to have another strong outing against a squad that is boasting a 47.30 CF% in their last 18 contests.
ARI 2: Vinnie Hinostroza, Richard Panik and Alex Galchenyuk
Possible Add-on: Jakob Chychrun
The majority of the stacks I mentioned are expensive, so it’s only right for me to write about a stack that’s dirt cheap. Arizona’s second line is a line that catches my attention. Although this line hasn’t seen much ice time together, I believe it possess a little bit of everything. Panik is a solid NHL player that has some speed and experience. Hinostroza has a lot of grit and I really like his style of play. Galchenyuk is a playmaker and an excellent offensive player. With Mike Smith in net, who has been atrocious this season and the matchups this line will be getting, I believe this line can hit value considering their cost.
