DraftKings NHL DFS Picks - January 18th

Last night time's DraftKings NHL DFS Picks had some secure performances, but we also had a number of duds that contained damaging performance from our gateway.

Steven Stamkos had a pleasant night time with a objective and help for Lightning, but some had to get us out of Yanni Gourd when he was moved as much as the fourth line. Gourde was unfavorable at a limited time, but Mikhail Sergachev was additionally unproductive.

The three-man Penguins stack was a bit better when Sidney Crosby founded Jake Guentzel at an early stage, however unfortunately it was all the offense that Pittsburgh might have made at night time once they have been like lightning, they have been disassembled from the primary spherical in the brief so as.

Our Blues mini-pile was additionally inspected at low score 4 when Robert Thomas and Pat Maroon combined fastened night time scenes, however have been stored out of the scoreboard.

Lastly, our Goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 4 flashes within the surprising lack of Lightning and made solely 18 financial savings for 22 photographs.

Let's put this behind us and we shall be shifting the slate of three games tonight!

C – Auston Matthews (TOR) – $ 6,900 vs. BOS

I'm unsure if Bruce Cassidy has changed the road of Auston Matthews coated by Patrice Bergeron to John Tavares' line tonight for Matthews, "efficiency three, but my cash says that Bergeron continues to be glued to John Tavares / Mitch Marner, so I'm ready for Matthews to get a extra favorable matchup at this time. he had 4 photographs in the end with simply over 19 and a half minutes of ice. experience tonight, so let's see that the 21-year-previous is tonight

C – Nathan MacKinnon (COL) – $ 7,100 vs. CGY

MacKinnon was an absolute beast in the Flames Games of Colorado Recreation 3, and though we will't fairly anticipate Colorado to get 56 photographs with a aim, like they did did in the final recreation, I really consider that may take three-1 points to Flames, where MacKinnon will cleared the path once more. He was in all places within the early stage of Recreation 3 when he scored a number of and added his assist together with 5 photographs. In no case can Flames blame Mike Smith for having allowed six objectives in three because he made one other 50 savings when Flames defended a chance for a veteran. In distinction, Smith was very inconsistent within the common season, and though he has been good thus far, I feel he is nonetheless an alder than most scorers in these playoffs. We’ve a very high layer here, the place the NHL shooter is within the common season when he has set 17 photographs to the objective via three games thus far. We’ve a fairly dynamic middle going tonight.

W – Andreas Johnsson (TOR) – $ four,000 vs. BOS

The boy acquired great worth from Johnsson in Recreation 3 because he was a spot with Matthews on a regular basis, when his velocity gave Bruins another defense. It was the second time in three games that Johnsson was the writer of, but he additionally broke out in multiplayer three when the younger guard reached the aim and helped go together with three photographs. I discussed that once I was crushed by him on Monday, I used to be excited to exchange the interrupted Nazem Kadrin Maple Leafs high-end unit, and see, and John Johnson's points got here in favor of that man. On the prime of the unit, Johnsson had seen loads of ice time on Gamed 3 at 6:30 pm to be actual, falling to the age of 24 years. He was final yr's AHL Playoff MVP when he dropped 24 factors in 16 playoffs and he was a subject participant in AHL's common season final yr, so we know he can get a score, particularly because the regular season has reached 20 objectives. Let's see Johnsson attending once more tonight.

W – Kasperi Kapanen (TOR) – $ 4,300 vs. BOS

Kapanen's performance is somewhat decrease than that of his lineman, because it doesn’t appear to make use of his digital velocity. a small three-recreation slate tonight. He has scored eight photographs in three video games in a collection, but Kapanen has not but reached the scoreboard regardless of having signed up for no less than 17:47 on two of the three games with Matthews. I'm wanting ahead to Mike Babcock driving heavily with Matthews tonight, so we shouldn't anticipate to see a big drop in Kapanen. Kapanen will be capable of make a breakthrough this night as he was a productive regular season with 20 objectives and 44 factors for 174 photographs in the course of the 78 season competition. He suffered from a concussion in the late season and has not been very productive, but I feel this recreation still has some value in its ownership.

W – Gabriel Landeskog (COL) – $ 6,400 vs. CGY

Engaged on the top line of a key phrase with MacKinnon is Landeskog, which additionally crosses the Celebrity Middle at Avs Excessive Power. Landeskog had a profession yr in a daily season when he shouted 34 objectives and added 41 assistants to solely 75 video games for 75 points. He lost a while at the finish of the common season, but has been full of those dropping games, skating for over 25 minutes in the first two games earlier than enjoying again at 18:59 in recreation three, still a really great amount ahead. So long as this does not get out of hand, I anticipate his ice age to return over a 22-minute mark. He has minimize his again in the again-to-again video games and has also saved 10 photographs in that section and 13 photographs for the objectives of the collection. Avs have been very dangerous in both of the final two games and we will reveal the 3 cylinders of the game, so this evening must be a very harmful combination once more.

D – Tyson Barrie (COL) – $ 5,600 vs. CGY

This is the fourth consecutive recreation, which I arranged BARRIELLE on this collection, and he rewarded me the loyalty of Recreation 3, when he reached for the primary time within the collection the utility. six photographs with paint and a blocked shot for start-up. The 27-year-previous blueliner is definitely Avs & # 39; s overwhelming defender, and can also be a lone defender in a harmful excessive power unit. He’s also one of the productive defenders all through the NHL as a result of he is coming from the season, during which he scored 14 objectives with 218 photographs and 45 assistants with 59 factors in 78 video games. It is the second consecutive season by which he has scored 14 objectives and scored a minimum of 57 factors, though he did so in just 68 video games last yr. Nonetheless, it is sensible to pay Barrie a excessive worth as a result of we’ve got achieved so together with his teammate MacKinnon and Landeskog tonight.

D – T.J. Brodie (CGY) – $ 3,900 vs. COL

Although I consider that Avalanche is getting his job tonight at residence, I don't assume they're sending a closure and I feel we might see some high – here tonight, despite Philipp Grubauer's wonderful conversion so far. Brodie leads the mini-stack and saw low ownership of the Flames blueline, which also consists of Mark Giordano, Travis Hamonic and Noah Hanifin. Brodie just isn’t going to offer us a number of photographs as a result of he solely advised 102 photographs in 79 regular season games (1.three per recreation) and has only three photographs in three games in this collection. Brodie scored one among two Flames objectives within the third recreation, and it has slipped at the very least 23:27 in two of the three games in this collection. She skates at Flames with another power unit, where she units up a mini stack tonight with our utility, so let's see much more worth from the veteran blueliner tonight.

G – Ben Bishop (DAL) – $ eight,000 vs. NSH

Stars and Preds have performed the first spherical of probably the most balanced collection tonight and never all three video games have exceeded five general objectives. I sit up for one other low rating tonight, and I just can't resist the concept Bishop will arrive immediately with an enormous show, as he has the whole season to keep away from returning the three-1 collection deficit again to Nashville. The bishop was high quality within the common season when he sent 1.98 GAA and .934 Sv%, whereas his residence quantity improved slightly between 1.90 GAA and 0.937 Sv in 26. Bishop has moved this star recreation to some extent where he has acquired 2.30 GAA and 0.931 Sv% when he owns a superb 2.10 GAA and zero.927 Sv% in playoffs. The celebs are a minor -115 favourite to win the tongue, and Predators was the NHL's worst drive within the common season and zero in eight playoffs, so I'm anticipating the bishop to provide us stars tonight. [19659002] UTIL – James Neal (CGY) – $ 3600 vs. COL

Our assembly and Flames minipin is made by Neal, who suffered an experimental common season with only seven objectives and 19 factors in 68 games and was held in that value. up so far. He has six photographs within the collection and has slipped over 14:08 in each of the final two video games, so I'm in search of Neal to return to at this time's scoreboard. He ended up firmly in the regular season with two objectives, and two assists four factors during the last 5 video games, though he has clearly not reached this tempo within the playoffs. Neal additionally skates with one other power unit alongside Brodien, whereas the duo also has a flat power mini-stack. Neal suffered a traditional seasonal slice of 5%, properly under his 11.6% monitor document, so he's received extra strokes and I anticipate to be kicked tonight.
