DFS NHL Breakdown: Thursday Line Stacks and Strategies

DFS NHL Breakdown: Thursday Line Stacks and Strategies

This article is part of our DFS NHL Breakdown series.

Slate Preview

Thursday provides us with another 13-game slate, but this one feels a lot more manageable as opposed to the insanity Tuesday. The marquee matchups seem to be out west, with Calgary visiting St. Louis, Winnipeg heading to Dallas, and San Jose traveling to Vegas for a Pacific Division clash. No teams are playing the second of a back-to-back, with only Pittsburgh playing a front-end game. Below are some of the highlighted tournaments on FanDuel and DraftKings:

$33 Goal (427 entries)$33 Line Change (883 entries)
$12 Slapshot (117 entries, 3 max)$12 Knuckle Puck (588 entries, Single Entry)
$7 Crossbar (504 entries)$10 Twine (5,882 entries)
$5 Save (357 entries, Single Entry)$5 One-Timer (951 entries, Single Entry)
$4.44 Breakaway (9,384 Entries)$3 Enforcer (1,189 entries, 3 max)

The following chart will be included so I do not have to bog down the write-ups with too many offensive and defensive ratings. Also shown are my projected shots on goal, shooting percentages and save percentages. Starting goalies are listed with either a projected or confirmed tag at the time of publication – this will be updated later in the day. Sorry for omitting this chart on Tuesday, I was stuck at a meeting all day without my computer and just couldn't get it included after I noticed I missed it.
