DFS NHL Optimal Lineups: February 4
Tom Vecchio provides you with a game by game breakdowns and example lineups for today's NHL DFS main slate.
Los Angeles Kings at New York Rangers
The Kings come in as +115 road dogs but make nice value plays tonight since they are up against a weaker Rangers defense. There is no one on the Kings that is truly expensive, Anze Kopitar is at 6.1K on DraftKings while only 6.5K on FanDuel. Stacking up this team should be somewhat popular tonight since the Rangers come in with a 59 Corsi Against this season, which is sixth worst in the league. They are giving up a ton of shots and taking too many penalties, so going to the first power-play with Drew Doughty, Dustin Brown, and Jeff Carter could be a nice GPP option tonight. On a smaller slate like this, cash games might not be the best option since there are limited choices at each position, but with the Rangers allowing teams to have a nice floor of points, you could go to the Kings for cash games.
On the Rangers side of things, Mika Zibanejad has been super-hot as of late with 15 points in his last eight games, which should put him in...
