I am all in on the Flyers tonight! I know their offense has only scored 137 goals on the year (27th in the NHL), but I like the match up they have tonight going up against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Maple Leafs have not been playing great hockey as of late, they are 3-7 in their last 10 games and just can't seem to find answers on either side of the puck. They have also allowed a total of 167 goals on the year (23rd in the NHL), so don't be surprised if the Flyers put a bunch of points on the board tonight. Giroux, Simmonds, and Schenn combined for a total of 8 points last time out! EIGHT POINTS IN ONE GAME!!! These guys are coming into Toronto hot and I definitely will be featuring these guys in my lineups. Don't say I didn't warn you!

Update: Claude Giroux is OUT tonight. Will keep an eye on who will step into his role.

The Blues can be tricky to predict at times, due to the fact we never know who is going to do the scoring, but I love the idea of a Blues stack! Tonight the St. Louis Blues will be going up against the Arizona Coyotes who are one of the worst defensive teams in the league. The Coyotes have a total of 634 penalty minutes (7th in the NHL) and also have a penalty kill percentage of 77.9% ( 26th in the NHL), so I decided to stack the guys that do the most damage in the 1st Powerplay unit. Steen, Shattenkirk, and Tarasenko combined for 5 points the last time they faced the Coyotes, so I would not be surprised if they were able to match that total or even surpass it.

The Red Wings are a team that I think will be pretty low owned and do some serious damage tonight going up against the Ottawa Senators. The Senators have given up a total of 180 goals on the year (29th in the NHL) and they also have a Penalty Kill percentage of 74.1% (29th in the NHL), so stacking the Red Wings 1st line/ 1st Powerplay could be huge with these statistics in their favor. Zetterberg, Datsyuk, and Abdelkader are all averaging 19 minutes on the ice per game, so they will have plenty of opportunities to put some points up on the board against a team that has been struggling as of late with a 4-6 record in their last 10 games. These three guys are at a great price and will allow you to get one of those high priced studs that you love tonight.

The Colorado Avalanche are definitely not one of the sexiest teams on the slate, but I love the match up they have tonight going up against the Edmonton Oilers. The Oilers are one of the worst defensive teams in the league, they rank top 5 in most fantasy points allowed this season. Vegas has this game as one of the highest scoring games of the night with a game total of 5 1/2 and I would not be surprised if this game surpassed that total. The Avalanche will be very low owned and is definitely a stack that can help you win one of those big tournaments tonight.
