We have one game today that features two teams with a ton of value. The Dallas Stars are hoping to close this series out on the road, while the Seattle Kraken look to live another day and force a Game 7. Showdown lineups can be a challenge to build but have no fear, we will do this together!

Let's now take a closer look at the daily fantasy hockey top plays for tonight's NHL DFS Showdown slate.

Dallas Stars Vs. Seattle Kraken

Players to target: Joe Pavelski, Max Domi, Jason Robertson, Evgenii Dadonov, Miro Heiskanen, Ryan Suter, Jake Oettinger, Tye Kartye, Yanni Gourde, Jared McCann, Morgan Geekie, Adam Larsson

The total for this game opened at 6.0 but has since moved to 5.5. I’m not quite sure why we are seeing a shift before puck drop, but it is something to keep in mind when building your lineup. If you’re thinking the same that this game will be a low-scoring affair, then it would be best to target Jake Oettinger in the Captain spot. If that isn’t the case, Joe Pavelski is the player to target. The veteran doesn’t shoot the puck a ton, but he is an expert at getting to the front of the net and tipping shots. 

As for the rest of my lineup, I’m going to look for some value. Max Domi has played very well in this series, so I’ll gladly have a piece of him tonight. You can consider playing Jason Robertson, but at his current price tag, he needs to find the back of the net to hit value and he has struggled to do that since the beginning of the playoffs. On the back end, Miro Heiskanen is always a good choice, but if you need some value, Ryan Suter is the better option. He’s not the offensive threat he once was, but he’s seeing a healthy amount of ice time and is capable of blocking shots.

On the Seattle side, we know that they can shoot the puck and score goals, but we have no idea where the offense is going to come from. They roll four lines every game and everyone is capable of getting on the scoresheet. For that reason, it’s safe to target cheaper forwards like Tye Kartye, Yanni Gourde and Morgan Geekie. If they find a way to pick up a point, great, but if they don’t, we can still survive. I know some people want to get behind Jared McCann and I think that’s a great idea today. He’s listed as a winger on the fourth line, but I don’t believe that he’s going to skate there all game. If anything, that should help get him some favorable matchups, which only increases his chances of scoring goals. Maybe this also helps scare some people off him and keeps his ownership low, but that feels like a stretch. If you want your one Seattle player to be a superstar, make it McCann.
