The Hurricanes should have all the chances in the world on home ice against a Blackhawks team that is allowing the 4th-most Scoring Chances Against and High-Danger Chances Against per 60 this year. CAR has been dominant at home possession-wise, posting the most Corsi For per 60, Scoring Chances For per 60, and High-Danger Chances For per 60 of any team on home ice in 2018. The top line should see 18-20 minutes of ice time including top power-play time against likely starter Cam Ward, who is a big step down from Corey Crawford. They’re not going to be a secret tonight, but this is clearly a top play in all formats on both sites.
With the probable return of Alex Radulov, we could see the real DAL1 re-unite at home against the Blue Jackets. Even if these 3 aren’t all together at even-strength, they almost always see a few minutes of ice time together at 5-on-5 and they’ll play on the top power-play tonight against a 76.8% Columbus penalty-kill. The Blue Jackets are allowing the 7th-most Corsi Against and Scoring Chances Against per 60, so if you’re looking for an expensive trio that may go underowned (if they’re not together), DAL PP1 is a great option.
The fancy numbers are seemingly always there for this line, but it rarely translates to GPP-winning success. However, tonight could be the night they finally bust out for a multi-goal performance at just $12,900 on DraftKings. They have a 52 Corsi For Percentage, over 30 Scoring Chances For per 60, and 13 High-Danger Chances For per 60 at even-strength, and the best part of this line is that they’ll see mostly ANA2 (38.9 CF%, 17.7 HDCA/60) and ANA3 (Henrique-Aberg duo at 48 CF%, 15.6 HDCA/60) at 5v5. The Ducks have been out-attempted by at least 10 in 5 out of their last 6 home games while being out-chanced in all of those 5 as well, so this sets up to be a great spot looking into possession numbers, and NSH2 is dirt-cheap.
