NHL Puck Drop

By Brewery Mark

COVID Update:
The NHL has postponed all Carolina Hurricane games through Jan 23.
Many Washington Capitals players have been placed on the covid list including Alex Ovechkin.

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.

I mostly play cash games (Double-ups and 50/50). I use the stacks for GPPs, mostly single entry tournaments..

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

Initial Thoughts
Stack Montreal/Vancouver and Ottawa/Winnipeg.
St Louis should easily handle LA
You have to play Tyler Toffoli. He is too cheap for the massive production he is having right now. I dud game is coming but I will play him anyway.

Shea Weber – MON
Mike Reilly – OTT
Justin Faulk – STL
Ben Chariot – MON

Centers
