San Jose is one of my favorite stacks of the night! They will be going up against Arizona, who will be playing their 2nd game of a back to back set. Arizona is entering this game with a 3-6-1 in their last 10 games, so look for the Sharks to take advantage of the struggling Coyotes. They have also allowed the 4th most goals to opposing teams on the year. Have some extra money to spend tonight? You could even get on the Brent Burns train; he is coming off a 10 point fantasy night and will be going up against a Coyotes team, who has given up the most fantasy points to opposing defenders.

These 3 guys combined for 40 fantasy point last time out against the Maple Leafs! You heard me!! Forty, 40, cuarenta (Spanish), quaranta (Italian), quarante (French), and vierzig (German)! I think you get the point; they scored 四十 (Japanese) fantasy points combined last time out! (Sorry I had to do that). On a serious note… Tonight, the Oilers will be taking on the Jets, which provide these guys with another excellent match up. The Jets allow an average of 2.9 goals per game, which ranks 25th in the NHL. They have also allowed the most fantasy points to Centers, 5th most fantasy points to opposing Right Wings, and the 3rd most fantasy points to opposing Left Wings. Plug these guys in your lineups! Don't be surprised if the Oilers have another big game against the Jets.

I guess I will write about these guys again tonight. What can I say, these guys are amazing and it would be dumb if I didn't mention them in my top stacks article. They lead the league in Power play percentage, points, and wins. The Capitals will be going up against Dallas tonight, the match up isn't the best, but it isn't the worst. Ovechkin is coming off a game where he had a hat trick and Backstrom is coming off a 3 assist game. These guys are definitely worth the investment! They have huge upside and are very consistent. Vegas has this game total at 5 ½, so stacking guys from this game could be the way to go.

When people are making their lineups tonight for NHL, they are going to see that the Winnipeg Jets are playing and are just going to look the other way. Don't be that person! The Jets actually have a nice match up against the Oilers tonight and could make some noise! This game has a game total of 5 ½, so we could see a lot of scoring in this contest. Edmonton has allowed an average on 3.0 goals per game, which ranks 27th in the NHL. They are one of the worst defensive teams in the league, so stacking the Jets 1st Power play unit is one way that I will be going tonight.
