DFS NHL Update
As there were only four games on the NHL schedule tonight and no late starts, your DFS NHL contest is already over.
I had a couple of money hunches recently, nailing Jamie McGinn last night and again with the LA Kings duo tonight. Supporting the success of good value picks (McGinn, Pearson), is the fact that almost every player contributed with a goal or an assist.
Anze Kopitar had 2 assists, 4 shots and a plus-1 rating. Quite impressive considering the Kings lost the game 5-2. Tanner Pearson scored a goal and added an assist, though his goal may be changed to Drew Doughty.
The Philly duo of Raffl and Simmonds each collected an assist, even though Shayne Gostisbehere couldn’t find the scoresheet. At least he was a plus-2 on the night and stayed in the positive fantasy points column. Like they say, “anything’s better than nothing'”. This definitely holds true in the fantasy sports realm.
Teddy Purcell contributed offensively with a powerplay assist of his own, and 3 shots. But he was a minus-one, a risk you take with Purcell in exchange for his pure offensive acumen. Specifically on the powerplay.
Here is the roster of my lineup.
