The Florida Panthers will be going up against the Coyotes tonight, which provides them with an excellent match-up. The Coyotes have allowed an average of 3.2 goals per game this season (30th in the NHL) and have been playing awful as of late.They are currently riding a seven-game losing streak and have allowed an average of 4.14 goals per game during that span. They have not been able to find any answers on the defensive side of the puck, so look for the Panthers to put some points up on the board tonight. Barkov,Jagr and Joiken combined for four points on Feb. 25, when they beat the Coyotes by a final score of 3-2.

Fun fact: Jussi Joiken is on fuego currently riding a six-point game streak (Watch out for No.36).

San Jose will be going up against Vancouver tonight, which is very interesting to say the least. These two teams met on Mar. 3 (which was exactly two days ago) and on Feb. 28. You can say these two teams might be very familiar with each other, but I still like the idea of a San Jose stack. The Sharks are 2-0 against Vancouver and have scored a total of seven-goals against them. Burns, Marleau and Couture combined for a total of 18 fantasy points in their last game against the Canucks and could be able to produce similar numbers again tonight. The Canucks have allowed an average of 31.5 shots on goal (27th in NHL), so the Sharks will have plenty of opportunities to score some points.

Fun fact: Brent Burns has scored six-points in his last two contest. And don't be surprised if his jersey burns today (see what I did there).

Senators-Maples Leafs is projected to be one of the highest scoring games on the slate, and I am definitely looking to stack the Senators. In two meetings this season -- the Senators were not only victorious, but also scored a total of 11-goals! Zibanejed, Ryan, and Karlsson were a big part of the offense in those two games, as they combined for a total of ten points. The Maple Leafs have allowed an average of 2.9 goals per game (24th in NHL), so don't be surprised if the Senators continue their success against a Maple Leafs team, that is currently riding a four-game losing streak.

Fun fact: Mika Zibanejad is averaging 3.4 fantasy points per game, in his last games -- compared to a season average of just 2.6.

The Canadiens are not favored to win tonight's contest against the Jets, but with Vegas having this game at a 5 1/2 total, I will go ahead and slot them as my contrarian play of the day. They will be going up against a Jets team that has total of 773 penalty minutes (28th in NHL). These guys just can't figure out a way to stay out of the penalty box. Look for the Canadiens' first-line to execute when they have a man advantage. The Jets have also allowed a total of 53 power-play goals, which also ranks 28th in the NHL. Look for Subban (8th in power-play points), Pacioretty and Gallagher to do some damge tonight. And the Jets have also allowed an average of 3.0 goals per game (26th in NHL)

Fun fact: P.K Subban, Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher have combined for a total of 46 power-play points this season.

I am definitely on board with these guys here, and you and I are of similar thinking with Montreal!
