Wednesday's 3-game NHL slate is a bit smaller than normal so we just have to be that much more accurate with our decision making! We should expect lots of tight games with some great matchups out there, but expect some of the top scorers to shine through still. So, be sure to check in with our NHL DFS Tools, with the daily NHL projections, and our NHL lineup generator when building those lineups today to help you decide which players you should be targeting!

Favorite Goalies to Use for DFS Lineups

Charlie Lindgren, G, Washington Capitals

The Islanders played last night in a win against the Oilers but have a quick turnaround against a pesky team in the Capitals. Islanders are just 6-7 straight up on the road and their production in goal scoring dips as well. I think the Capitals win this game and in a small slate you must pick a winning goaltender. 

Laurent Brossoit, G, Winnipeg Jets

Playing a goalie against the Red Wings has been a painful endeavor for many this season as they have scored 3.7 goals per game on the road the last month but I have a feeling the Jets goalie will be widely under owned for a starter that should get a win. The Wings also pile on lots of shots this season so the floor is safe if he can allow 3 or less goals. 

Recommended DFS Skaters

Highest Expected Goal Totals 

Winnipeg Jets vs James Reimer (3.71)

Los Angeles Kings vs Joey Daccord (3.47)

Washington Capitals vs Semyon Varlamov (3.41)

Favorite Skaters to Use for DFS Lineups

Dylan Strome, C, Washington Capitals

Not the most sexy name but in a 3 game slate you got to go digging around and Strome is solid as they come right now with 18 points on the season. He is also riding a 4 game point streak and the Islanders allow the most DFS points to centers this season. 

Nikolaj Ehlers, W, Winnipeg Jets

No Kyle Connor in the lineup right now for the Jets so Ehlers is stepping up to the top line in a great matchup for wingers! The Red Wings allow the 7th most DFS points to left wingers this season and Ehlers has 7 points over his last 3 games, keep that streak going!

Trevor Moore, W, Los Angeles Kings

The man is on a heater right now and can't be ignored with 18 shots over the last 3 games and a goal in the last 2 games! Seattle in average against wingers but they are swiss cheese on defense in general so fade them and put Moore in the lineup tonight. 

Neal Pionk, D, Winnipeg Jets

Something to keep an eye on but Josh Morrissey missed practice yesterday after taking a puck to the face and may be out tonight. If he is then expect Pionk to pull increased minutes and see powerplay one time. That's enough to make the 3.6k price tag on DK worth it and the Wings are really bad against defenseman this season.
