DFS NHL Optimal Lineups: December 12
Tom Vecchio provides you with optimal lineups for today's NHL DFS main slate.
Vegas Golden Knights @ New York Islanders
We could be in for a bit of a lopsided game here, as Vegas comes in with the fourth highest Corsi For sitting at 62, while the Islanders are second lowest at only 50 Corsi For. This generally leads to a slower paced game since we don’t have a ton of back and forth action, meaning the fantasy value could be capped at some point. Regardless of the overall flow, the Golden Knights still make a good team to target tonight, since they come in with a high shot expectation, which should lead to a solid floor of points.
