With Tyler Seguin out for the next three-to-four weeks, you can expect guys like Eakin, Benn and Sharp to step up for the Stars. Sharp and Benn have combined for a total of six points in their last two games, so expect them to carry that momentum into tonight's contest against a shaky Coyotes defense. They have allowed an average of 3.0 goals per game (27th in NHL) and an average of 31.0 shots per game (24th in NHL). The Stars will get plenty of opportunities to put some points on the board, so I expect the 1st line (Eakin, Sharp, and Benn), to have a nice game.

With a 10-game slate on our hands, I am hoping the Wild slip under the radar, which would make them an excellent tournament stack. They will be going up against an Ottawa team that allows an average of 32.8 shots on goal (30th in NHL). They have also allowed an average of 3.0 goals per game (28th in NHL). The matchup is there for these guys and we all know that Praise can go off on any given night, so watch out for the Wild. By the way -- they are coming into tonight's contest on fire! They have a 7-2-1 record in their last ten games.

The Sharks are a little pricey, but are definitely worth the investment. They will be going up against the Canucks and are heavy favorites to win this contest. (71% favorited) highest favored team of the night. They have scored 9 goals in their last two games and will be going up against a Canucks team that has allowed an average of 2.9 goals per game (29th in NHL). The matchup is their and they will be playing with a little chip on their shoulder as they are fighting to make the playoffs. They are my favorite stack of the night!

The Islanders will be going up against a Blue Jackets' team, that has struggled as of late. They are entering tonight's contest riding a three-game losing streak and with a 3-7 record in their last ten. Not only will the Islanders be going up against a struggling Columbus team, but they are also one of the worst teams on the defensive side of the puck. They have a save percentage of .902 (29th in NHL) and have allowed an average of 3.1 goals per game (29th in NHL). The matchup is a great one for the Islanders, so an Islanders' stack is another way to go. (They will be lower owned than other stacks, which makes them great for tournaments)
