DraftKings NHL DFS Lineup: October 28

We have a six-game slate tonight in the NHL and tonight want to target the Colorado Avalanche at home for a few reasons. The Winnipeg Jets have allowed 3.24 GAA this year while giving up the sixth most power play opportunities to opposing teams (31).

Colorado has been on the road for five of its six games this season and is playing only its second home game this season. They are one of the top teams in terms of scoring goals, but the thing is, it really doesn’t show because they have only played five games–the fewest in the NHL. Yet they have scored 16 goals in their five games this season and six goals in their only home game.

WINNIPEG @ COLORADO

N. MacKinnon $6,600

G. Landeskog $5,400

M. Duchene $6,00

C. Soderberg $4,300 2.37

E. Johnson $5,000

T. Barrie D PP1 $4,900

J.Colborne $3,500

We want to target the top lines as well as players who are on the top power play unit. As I was constructing the team I also came across a dilemma in which defenseman I wanted to roster in this game from Colorado, but I worked a way to use both Barrie and Johnson along with Hanifin playing his home opener.

I think you can play with a few options off of this setup and I think both are strong plays, especially using three defensmen on a team. Duchene has looked great and is averaging 4.4 FPPG while his linemate Landeskog is starting to warm to the task with three points on the season.

I left out Iginla here but don’t be afraid to substitute him into the mix as well. He is a veteran sniper who is a proven goal score in the elite 500-goal club. Another player not on the top few lines but is worth a mention is Joe Colborne who is quietly having himself a strong season after coming over from Calgary in the offseason.

He has three goals on the season and is a penalty kill specialist. I think this game see a few lines contribute to the scoring as the Avalanche smother the Jets tonight at home.

NEW YORK @ CAROLINA

N.Hanifin $,4,100

V.Rask $5,600

J.Skinner $5,700

The Carolina Hurricanes are playing their home opener tonight in Raleigh and I think having some exposure to this game is important. As I said before, I want to roster Noah Hanifin in this game along with Victor Rask who is an integral part of the scoring.

If Jeff Skinner plays in this game–which I think he will since he practiced in the morning–I am going to adjust a player or too to include him on my cash team. Skinners’ puck possession and chemistry with Rask is excellent. Playing on a narrative of Carolina coming out and playing hard against a Rangers team that is allowing the highest goals allowed per game at 3.86 along with Edmonton, I think the Hurricanes can find some much-needed scoring with the help of a raucous crowd and terrible Rangers defense.

COLUMBUS @ ANAHEIM

R. Kesler $4,300

J. Silverberg $5,200

C. Perry $6,100

J.Gibson $7,800

In goal tonight I want to use John Gibson who has really turned it on as of late, ripping off three wins after struggling to start the season. The Columbus Blue Jackets are in town after playing and losing in San Jose last night. Gibson has a 2.27 goals against average with a .913 save percentage even after a rough start. His 3-2-2 record is not indicative of his play but I expect him to continue to see the puck and find a way to keep the puck out of the net. I think the fact that Andersen was traded away put a lot of pressure on Gibson to start the season and he has overcome those jitters and has found his game from last year. Keep an eye on him and the Ducks who lead the NHL in shots, the iCorsi Kings, but have struggled to score until recently. I think under their new coach they can accomplish what has eluded them for so the past few years, another Stanley Cup. Vegas really loves Anaheim at home too, having them the heaviest favor at(-190) and projected to score a tad over 3 goals.

I think Anaheim continues their sound defensive game finding goals from the second line and power play. Ryan Kesler and Jacob Silverberg found a great chemistry last year and are continuing that chemistry once again as Silverberg put up two goals in his last game.

CHICAGO @ NEW JERSEY

K.Kinkaid $7,100

If you also want to differentiate yourself tonight you can switch out Gibson and use Kinkaid from the Devils who will see a ton of shots this evening. The Devils are the second best defensive team in the NHL allowing a stingy 2.13 goals against. I think this game will be a one-goal game with either team winning either in a shootout or a late goal.

A shutout is not out of the realm of possibilities.
