Well last night went exactly the opposite of how it was scripted. All of the numbers pointed to Vancouver, Calgary and Colorado lighting up the scoreboard. So of course, they scored a total of six goals among them.
This was a prime example of the dangers of stacking in hockey. When you run into a hot goalie, it doesn’t matter how many shots you throw at him: you are not going to score much, and your night is shot. Hopefully, you took our advice and played either Tuuku Rask or Corey Schneider to help salvage your night.
Today’s Top Daily Fantasy Hockey Picks
Top Fantasy Hockey Goalie
Marc Andre-Fleury - Since Sidney Crosby took a puck to the face, the Penguins have had a difficult time scoring goals, which means that the goaltending has had to carry them. Fleury has been outstanding this year, and tonight he gets to take on the horrible Hurricanes. The Canes generate lots of shots but do not score much. Fleury is 8-1 in his last ten, including a shutout. He should pick up lots of saves and also get the win, with a decent shot at a shutout tonight.
Top Fantasy Hockey Forward
Alex Ovechkin - At this point there is no better option for daily fantasy hockey, as he has 20 points in last 11 games.
Top Fantasy Hockey Defenceman
PK Subban - Like Ovechkin, there is no other defenceman playing at Subban’s daily fantasy hockey level.
