3 Daily Fantasy Hockey Stacks for 1/20/17
The Boston Bruins' advanced stats say they should be dominating possession and winning a lot of games. However, they are only 23-19-6 with a -1 goal differential.
They still rank first in team Corsi For at 55.8% and we know this is one of the best predictors for winning games. So, they should have a big second half of the year. Tuukka Rask has been inconsistent recently, allowing 4, 0, 3, 0, 3, 4, and 5 goals in his last 7 starts.
Tonight, the Bruins will face the Chicago Blackhawks, a team most DFSers don't like to pick on. Still, they are giving up the fourth-most Scoring Chances Against per 60 minutes at 9.1. This is a team that can be had, and with Corey Crawford resting, Boston's second line is a sneaky stack.
As of now, it looks like Krejci and Pastrnak will play on the second line, while Vatrano plays with Patrice Bergeron at even-strength and Krejci on the second power play. Vatrano is coming off two goals in his last game and has the third-highest Individual Corsi For per 60 minutes at 20.7.
With this stack, we get a center in David Krejci that gets to play with a stud at even-strength and another one on the power play.
