Stacking is the best way to take down a GPP in NHL DFS. You are looking at three stacks below, that consist of top and contrarian stacks. Stacking doesn't always feature just wingers or centers, especially with the offensive defenseman in the game these days. When stacking we tend to focus on the top two lines for teams, as well as who is on the powerplay.
This has been kind of a night in and night out routine with Chicago, but they draw another friendly matchup against Dallas, who have allowed the seventh most goals per game this season (3.10). Dallas has also been in the bottom five in powerplay, so you can roll with Artemi Panarin and Artem Anisimov alongside Kane on a powerplay stack. Chicago is scoring 3.55 goals per game, which ranks second behind the Rangers. Antti Niemi is allowing 3.34 goals per game this season, with a .899 save percentage. Chicago is scoring 3.75 goals per game over their last four.
Montreal had one of the more lopsided losses I have every seen last night, losing 10-0 to Columbus. They are projected to score 2.96 goals tonight, which is inside the top five. Michal Neuvirth is making another start, who has been the better goalie for Philly, but that isn't saying much. He is allowing 3.30 goals per game, with an .876 save percentage. Montreal's top line has been very solid, and Shea Weber is a great pairing option given Mad Max is on the second line. Montreal is scoring over three goals per game this season, and will look to bounce back after a horrible game.
Nashville is always the most frustrating stack given how inconsistent they are, but they are in a good spot tonight. Nashville is scoring under 2.5 goals per game over the last week or so, which should cause them to fly a bit under the radar. Vegas has them projected for over three goals tonight, and I can certainly buy into that. Carolina is allowing the third most goals per game this season (3.56). Cam Ward is allowing 3.33 goals per game, with an .882 save percentage.
