The Dallas Stars are pricey, but they are definitely worth the investment. They will be going up against the Winnipeg Jets, which is a team that they are very familiar with and have had much success against. In four meetings this season, the Stars have a 4-0 record and are averaging 5.0 goals per game! And don't forget, the Stars lead the league with a total of 199 goals scored this season.

The Islanders will be going up against the Calgary Flames tonight in what is projected to be one of the highest scoring games of the night. The Flames allow an average of 3.1 goals per game (29th in the NHL) and have a penalty kill percentage of .732% (30th in the NHL). With those two stats in the Islanders favor, I am going to stack their 1st power play unit. When these two teams met earlier in the season, Tavares, Nielsen and Okposo combined for 17 fantasy points!

I have decided to spice things up with my Los Angeles stack! Instead of stacking a front line like most people, I have decided to stack two defenders and a center. My reasoning behind this unusual stack is because I love the way Doughty, Kopitar, and Muzzin complement each other. These three guys have combined for an average of 12.4 fantasy points per game over their last 10 games. They will be going up against the Edmonton Oilers who have allowed a total of 17 goals over their last 4 games. I can see the Kings doing some serious damage against a team that is riding a 4-game losing streak and has not been very efficient on the defensive side of the puck.

With a 10 game slate on our hands tonight, not a lot of people will look to stack the Florida Panthers, which is why I love the idea of stacking their front line. Not only will they save you a ton of money, but they also have a very intriguing matchup. They will be going up against the Arizona Coyotes, who have really struggled as of late. They are entering this contest riding a 3-game losing streak and have a 3-6-1 record in their last 10 games. The Arizona Coyotes have allowed a total of 185 goals on the year (4th in NHL), so don't be surprised if 44-year-old Jaromir Jagr has another big game for the Florida Panthers.
