A decent offering of eight games awaits us tonight. Finding value appears to be a bit of a challenge as my wite up includes just two games. Not to say there aren’t other games that you should target. Carolina at Detroit is fully in play for obvious reasons, Nashville at Montreal should also be considered as the Preds are all of the sudden a team on the rise. That leaves us with Lightning/Leafs and Islanders/Canucks. Here we go again, time to pencil in some Ice Picks! Continue reading →

Continue reading →
With the NHL season set to embark in just six days, the Tampa Bay Lightning ensured that star forward, Brayden Point would be in the lineup come puck drop. After an extended off-season and some uncertainty and concern regarding Point’s status in 2019, both sides were eager to get this deal out of the way. Let’s take a closer look at how both the player and team reached an agreement.
Mega slate, 12 games on tap for us to pick off of tonight. My eye is on four games that appear to have a good chance of going off offensively.

In the Atlantic Division, once again, we have the three strongest teams in the Eastern Conference. Where do all the teams in the Atlantic Division stand following the NHL Trade Deadline? Continue reading →
Thursday, February 21st’s NHL card has 11 games on tap. Two games have me very intrigued and lead the way by a good margin over the rest of the offerings for high event matches. Washington at Toronto and San Jose at Pittsburgh(especially) could go off for a plethora of goals. Also, Buffalo at Tampa Bay and New York Islanders at Edmonton are on my radar.
A maxed out NHL card for Tuesday evening brings us 12 games to choose from. Plenty of high event games to like, Golden Knights at Lightning, Sharks at Jets, Blue Jackets at Avalanche, Blackhawks at Oilers and Hurricanes at Penguins round out games with the most offensive upside.
A whopper of a slate for your Tuesday evening. 11 games to pick players from on DraftKings. This makes things more interesting and perhaps more challenging for us to find a winning combination of players because the pool to pick from is so much greater on these nights. Florida at Pittsburgh, Columbus at Tampa Bay, Colorado at Winnipeg, and Edmonton at San Jose are where my focus will be, so let’s get going.
Pittsburgh Penguins won eight straight games going to Sunday night, but as soon as they learned Their opponent would be, the Penguins knew the streak would come to an end. The Blackhawks defeated the Penguins for tenth straight time and in comeback fashion. The Pens scored two early goals to jump to a 2-0 lead, but Chicago came back to win 5-3 to offer a little bit of consolation for fans from Windy City.
The Toronto Maple Leafs and Minnesota Wild begin the eight-game Thursday slate at an odd 2 p.m. eastern time with all other games beginning at the more normal 7 p.m. time slot. We will focus our attention on the evening match-ups. Tampa Bay, Washington, and the Vancouver/Montreal game are all good spots to build your roster. (Update, Leafs/Wild game not on DraftKings for today’s games).
In my opinion, the Eastern Conference is the more exciting conference of the two in the National Hockey League. I am going to be highlighting a player or an exciting line from each team to watch out for as you get your fill of hockey this year.
The Atlantic Division has been nothing short of insanity in the first 28 games of the 2018-19 season. Each team is hovering around .500 in the standings and the storylines are laid out for an explosive finish. Can Buffalo shock the world and take the Atlantic title? Will Boston creep up towards the end? Will it be a race to the finish for Toronto and Tampa Bay for not only the Atlantic title but the Presidents’ Trophy? There isn’t another division in the National Hockey League that has as much potential for a storied season as the Atlantic.
