With the Tampa Bay Lightning facing a struggling Montreal Canadiens team, Steven Stamkos could be in for a big night in NHL DFS. Which other players should you target on Thursday's slate?

A good chunk of you probably already play daily fantasy football, and I'd be willing to bet a significant portion have also tried out daily fantasy basketball and baseball. But hockey? Hockey?

It's time to give it a try over on FanDuel.com because it's a ton of fun. And our analysis and projections can help you win.
