Wednesday's four-game NHL slate is loaded with top-tier scorers featuring a great matchup as Sebastian Aho and the Carolina Hurricanes face Travis Konecny and the Philadelphiala Flyers. 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!

DFS Lineup Construction Thoughts

With just four games today, there can only be so much variance in lineups, but there are players to target in each of the four games. I continue to think of the Philadelphia Flyers as a trap. They never do what we think they should win or lose, but what they don't do is give up a lot of goals. They have only given up three goals per game on average this month, and they are facing a Carolina team that has scored only 2.8 goals per game over the last two weeks. The temptation will be to load up on Hurricanes players, it might be wise to use the Flyers goalies in some of your GPP's. For scoring Vancouver, Edmonton and Colorado are the better places to look. Vancouver leads the league in goals per game this month with 5, Edmonton looks better after firing Jay Woodcroft, and Colorado is going to face an Anaheim team that is playing on back-to-back nights. 

Recommended DFS Starting Goalies

Top Options for Saves

Joey Daccord vs Edmonton Oilers

Lukas Dostal vs Colorado Avalanche

Carter Hart vs Carolina Hurricanes

Best Odds for a Win

Alexandar Georgiev vs Anaheim Ducks

Pyotr Kochetkov vs Philadelphia Flyers

Stuart Skinner vs Seattle Kraken

Favorite Goalies to Use for DFS Lineups

Carter Hart, G, Philadelphia Flyers

The Flyers are tough to predict, but they don't give up a lot of goals, and I would expect Hart to see lots of shots today facing a Carolina team that is among the top of the league in shots per game. In a GPP I can see rolling the dice with Hart, but in cash games, I would look for a safer option.

Thatcher Demko, G, Vancouver Canucks

Demko has been a top-shelf goalie at home this season. He has a 5-0 record and a 0.964 save percentage on home ice. He will be facing an Islanders team that has only scored 2 goals per game this month which is second worst in the league. There should be both value and some safety in starting Demko today.

Stuart Skinner, G, Edmonton Oilers

After a really rough start to the season, Skinner has played well in his last two games. This is a game the Oilers are capable of winning, and Skinner shouldn't see high ownership numbers which can be a value in itself.

Recommended DFS Skaters

Highest Expected Goal Totals 

Colorado Avalanche vs Lukas Dostal (4.2)

Carolina Hurricanes vs Carter Hart (4.1)

Edmonton Oilers vs Joey Daccord (3.8)

Favorite Skaters to Use for DFS Lineups

Elias Pettersson, C, Vancouver Canucks

Pettersson is coming off his first zero of the season in his last game. I would look for him to bounce back today against an Islanders team that is giving up close to four goals per game this month.

Sebastian Aho, C, Carolina Hurricanes

Aho has been rock solid for the Hurricanes as of late. He has scored in three of his last four games, and he has points in each of his last five games. The Hurricanes are expected to score more than four goals today and if that prediction becomes a reality, I would expect Aho to be involved in at least a couple of those goals.

Zach Hyman, W, Edmonton Oilers

Hyman has been a consistent scorer for the Oilers as of late. He has four goals in his last two games, and he will continue to get lots of minutes playing with Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl.

Jamie Oleksiak, D, Seattle Kraken

Oleksiak as started to be a mainstay in lineups as his price as continued to be very low, while he kept blocking lots of shots. I wouldn't expect today to be any different with Seattle facing an Edmonton team that leads the league in shots per game over the last two weeks.
