Welcome to Wednesday’s 3-game NHL Slate. We have many elite options to choose from, but we need to ensure that we are also targeting value. There are also some goalies that we need to keep an eye on because they could help us take down a GPP. You can build daily fantasy hockey lineups on DraftKings, FanDuel, and Yahoo Fantasy for Wednesday, November 29th, but before you build those NHL daily fantasy lineups, don’t forget to check out our NHL DFS projections, the NHL Value Finder, and the NHL DFS lineup generator. Let's look at the daily fantasy hockey top plays for tonight's NHL DFS Showdown slate.

Elvis Merzlikins Vs. Montreal Canadiens


Favorite Goalies to Use for DFS Lineups

Pheonix Copley, G, Los Angeles Kings

Hard to fade away from the Kings on a tiny slate like tonight and seeing them have the best odds to win on the board. We actually don't know the starting goaltender for the Kings just yet so it could be Cam Talbot but either way the goaltending unit is in a good spot considering the Capitals lack of teeth in the offense that scores just 2.33 goals per game. 

Igor Shesterkin, G, New York Rangers

The Red Wings offense has been very good this season but right now Dylan Larkin is out and that's a massive blow for them. Enter one of the league's best goaltenders who seldom needs a boost to get the job done but he has one tonight. Red Wings will still pile on the shots but Igor should lock down the gates and head to his 9th win of the season. 


Recommended DFS Skaters

Highest Implied Goal Totals 

Columbus Blue Jackets  Vs Sam Montembeault (3.68)

Los Angeles Kings Vs. Darcy Kuemper (3.53)

New York Rangers Vs. Ville Husso (3.5)


Favorite Skaters to Use for DFS Lineups

Boone Jenner, C, Columbus Blue Jackets

This matchup is the only game total at 6.5 goals for tonight and that should tell you to get pieces of this game locked into the lineup. Jenner has 11 goals this season and the Habs are allowing 3.48 goals per game and the 3rd most DFS points to centers this season, slam dunk play. 

Phillip Danault, C, Los Angeles Kings

To be honest you could play either of the 3 Kings centers tonight between Danault, Dubois or Kopitar they will all play well. I am just looking at a more cost effective option who is on the ice a bunch and gets powerplay minutes. The Capitals are very weak down the middle these days too so faceoff wins and possession will be easier to the Kings centers and should lead to more points. 

Cole Caufield, W, Montreal Canadiens

Of all the top priced wingers on the slate its this kid and Artemi Panarin that have the best matchups by far. Cole is a little more up and down for my comfort and salary normally but the Blue Jackets allow the 8th most DFS points per game to left wingers and many shots against as well. 

Kirill Marchenko, W, Columbus Blue Jackets

Playing on the top line with Johnny Gaudreau and Jenner have its advantages and with 13 points this season so far Marchenko has compiled some nice games. He has 13+ DFS points in 3 of his last 4 outings and the Habs are 2nd worst in the league when it comes to allowing DFS points to right wingers. 

Adam Fox, D, New York Rangers

Adam Fox is back tonight and that means the free square of other Rangers blue liners in DFS is sadly over. Fox is as cheap as ever today on DK at 5.2k and the reports are that he has no restrictions and will play his normal role. That role is massive and on special teams as well, fire him up!
