We’ve got five games for Friday night in the NHL. The Wild have been playing well and travel to Detroit. Also, that Bruins at Blues game sounds intriguing.
No Lehtonen, no problem. The correct answer to yesterday’s poll was Antti Niemi, but he technically wasn’t a choice (unless you chose Lehtonen and implied his back up counted too, but come on.). Out of the remaining three, Greiss scored the highest. Congrats to the 30% of voters who chose the Islanders backstop. You win free NHL DraftKings lineups for the remainder of the regular season. (But so does everyone else because our 3 Jack lines are always free. April Fools…?)
If you went the simple route with our lineup by plugging in Niemi, you were rewarded handsomely. Niemi posted 8.2 FPP as part of a lineup that scored over 44 points. Easy wins in all of our cash games and even some GPP money.
We’re going chalk tonight with Gibson against Vancouver. It might not be a good GPP line tonight, but we’re looking to keep the win streak rolling after a shaky start to the week. There are four Ducks in the roster overall.
Be sure to always check your lineups before they lock. Sometimes late injuries, scratches, etc. can cause some great values to be unlocked right before the NHL puck drops. If you want to win, you really need to check your fantasy lineups frequently on game day. Just use my lineup as a template to start your DFS research.
