Nine games tonight with just one back-to-back on the schedule. We have a few spots that might get fairly popular, but on the whole, ownership shouldn’t be a significant concern on a nine-game slate.
TOP STACKS (listed in order of games, not preference):
BUF1: Kane-O’Reilly-Okposo, $16.2K and BUF2: Reinhart-Eichel-Girgensons, $14.8K: Both of the Sabres’ top two lines are firmly in play against the Islanders. The Islanders’ numbers over the past fifteen days just keep getting worse…they’re now over 40 score adjusted 5v5 scoring chances against per 60 minutes. Both of these BUF lines should split time against the top two lines for the Islanders tonight, which are excellent matchups, specifically against John Tavares. I think the PP1 JOSH Stack is firmly in play here as well, with Reinhart-Eichel-Okposo-O’Reilly-Ristolainen. There will probably be some ownership on the Eichel line tonight, but that certainly isn’t enough reason to fade by itself. The Sabres always seem to let down in these semi-chalk spots, but I can’t see that happening tonight. D-man correlation play: Rasmus Ristolainen, $5,300 (5v5, PP)
