This article is part of our DFS NHL Breakdown series.
Please see this previous article for the basic strategy write-up.
My rankings use a Corsi-based rating system that I created, with the average rating 100 both offensively (OR) and defensively (DR). This rating is determined by factoring in Corsi, scoring chances, high danger chances, shooting percentage and save percentage. With the current rosters I have loaded, the Offense Rating (OR) ranges from a best of 119.5 (TOR) to a worst of 92.2 (DET), and the Defense Rating (DR) ranges from a best of 93.4 (BOS) to a worst of 112.1 (OTT). These numbers will change daily with line changes, injuries and player call-ups. The ratings in the chart below represent adjusted match up ratings.
Tuesday night brings us a big 11-game slate with a wide open schedule and many options to choose from. The night is highlighted by an Atlantic Division tilt as Boston travels to Montreal. Ottawa, Boston and Arizona will be playing their second game in as many nights, while St. Louis plays the front end of a back-to-back.
