Tonight presents another five-game slate in the NHL. After a summary of last night’s results, below is an overview of today’s DFS NHL 3/20/17 lineup for FanDuel contests.
Last night’s lineup cashed easily. Jonathan Toews had a big game with two goals on three shots, earning 28.8 fantasy points. Artemi Panarin scored a goal and an assist and registered seven shots for a total of 31.2 fantasy points. All three Carolina forwards (Jeff Skinner, Elias Lindholm, Teuvo Teravainen) scored at least one point (Sebastian Aho did as well if you went with him, as did Jordan Staal). If you decided to go with Brayden Schenn, he scored the game-winning overtime goal for the Flyers. Derick Brassard and Erik Karlsson did not find the scoresheet but recorded three shots and three shots and five blocks, respectively. Lastly, Scott Darling came away with the win but did not earn many fantasy points (17.6) because he gave up three goals and only faced 25 shots.
