Puck Drop 1/19

By Brewery Mark

Please note: The Carolina @ Nashville game has been postponed due to COVID

NHL Puck Drop will be a quick list of my favorite players, line stacks and bets for single day NHL slates. This will be updated as news is released.

Players are typically in order of price on DK. Stacks are single team stacks. One strategy is to “run back” a player from the opposing team, if you think the game will be a shootout.

Betting is Moneyline unless otherwise noted.

Feel free to send me question on Twitter: @brewerymark @draught4upside

General thoughts
Colorado seems like a sure thing tonight against the Kings and may have lower than normal ownership, since puck drop is at 10:30 EST. Load up on Colorado’s power play uits.

I like Detroit, Florida and Winnipeg in their matchups.

Washington and Pittsburgh are always a shootout. I prefer the Malkin line tonight

Jack Hughes – NJ has been playing well and is priced too low at $4900
