The Ducks are on fire! They are heading into tonight's contest with a 9-0-1 record in their last ten games. While they are one of the hottest team in the NHL, they will be facing a Coyotes team that has struggled as of late. They are 3-7-0 in their last ten and are currently riding a six-game losing streak.

With the way these two teams have been playing as of late, I will be stacking the Ducks first-line. Perron, Getzlaf and Fowler are averaging 19.2 fantasy points in their last ten games and have combined for a total of 31-points during that span. And -- Arizona has allowed an average of 3.1 goals per game (30th in NHL), which provides these guys with an excellent matchup.

Tampa Bay will be going up against the Senators tonight, in what is projected to be one of the highest scoring games on the slate. The Senators are one of the worst teams on the defensive side of the puck. They have given up an average of 3.0 goals per game (29th in NHL) and have also given up a total of 53 power-play goals on the year (29th in NHL). With these stats in Tampa Bay's favor, look for Callahan, Killhorn and Stamkos to capitalize on power-play opportunities and put some of points on the board.

The Flyers are coming into tonight's contest riding a three-game winning streak and scoring at least three goals per game during that span. Tonight, they will be squaring off against the Edmonton Oilers, who have allowed an average of 2.9 goals per game (26th in the NHL). Edmonton is also coming into tonight's contest with a 3-5-2 record in their last ten, so look for the Flyers to take advantage of a struggling Oilers' team. Gostisbehere, Simmonds and Giroux combined for 20.5 fantasy points in their last game against the Flames, so look for them to carry that momentum into tonight's game.

The Jets are a team that absolutely no one will be looking at tonight with an 11-game slate on our hands. They will be going up against the Islanders tonight, which might not be the best of matchups on paper, but I see the Jets doing some damage. The Islanders are coming into this contest playing their sixth consecutive game on the road. These guys are tired and Winnipeg could take advantage. Wheeler, Ehlers and Scheifele have combined for 13 points in their last four games (average of 3.25 points per game over their last four). They have been on a tear and will once again be a big part of the Jets offense.
