DFS NHL Breakdown: Thursday Line Stacks and Strategies

DFS NHL Breakdown: Thursday Line Stacks and Strategies

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 over the past six weeks. With the current rosters I have loaded, the Offense Rating (OR) ranges from a best of 115.1 (TOR) to a worst of 84.0 (DET), and the Defense Rating (DR) ranges from a best of 91.7 (STL) to a worst of 113.6 (NYR). These numbers will change daily with line changes, injuries and player call-ups. The ratings in the chart below represent adjusted match up ratings.

Slate Preview

Thursday night brings a 10-game main slate, highlighted by the Islanders at Atlantic Division leaders Boston, and a potential Western shootout in the nightcap between Vegas and Vancouver.
