The top line for the Sharks is in arguably the best spot of the night as they host the Islanders who will likely be without Robin Lehner. San Jose has been one of the top even-strength Corsi teams so far this season, and there isn’t a line that should be able to hold this trio (which has a 69.9 Corsi For Percentage). Top power-play time for Kane and Pavelski with the likes of Brent Burns and Erik Karlsson cement this stack as a top GPP option.
The 2017-18 St. Louis top line will be reunited tonight in Toronto in what should be one of the highest-paced games of the slate. Schwartz, Schenn, Tarasenko posted fantastic 5v5 numbers last season, including a 58.9 Corsi For Percentage, 36.1 Scoring Chances For per 60 minutes, and 11 High-Danger Chances For per 60 minutes. Based on what the Leafs have been doing at home, they could see a lot of the Auston Matthews line (which we’d prefer), but regardless of which line they face, this stack is much too cheap on DraftKings to be avoided in this kind of matchup.
The Florida 2nd line found instant success last night in Washington, and will now get a great matchup going back home to face the Red Wings. They’ll even get to avoid the Detroit top line and get to feast on the depth lines at even-strength where the Red Wings have struggled mightily, allowing 13.5 High-Danger Chances Against per 60 minutes. The power-play correlation is the only downside, but pairing this line with Keith Yandle will get you more PP1 exposure against this poor Detroit penalty-kill (70%).
