Happy Thursday, SideLeaguers! We’ve got a whopping 6 games on the SideLeague NHL schedule tonight so there’s plenty of picks to be had for all. Here are a few guys you should definitely focus on for tonight.
Gustav Nyquist & Niklas Kronwall, Detroit Red Wings: Nyquist has scored a goal in 6 straight games. Not just a point, but a goal. He has 9 of them during this stretch! Get him in your lineup. Period. Kronwall is just more of a gut pick. He should get a decent amount of shots on goal and shot blocks tonight.
Jamie McGinn, Colorado Avalanche: McGinn’s on a 5 game point streak right now and gets a Vancouver team that he should definitely keep it going against.
Ondrej Palat, Tampa Bay Lightning: The winger has scored 12 points in his last 8 games. Tampa draws an Islanders team that have the 2nd worst penalty kill in the NHL. Palat skates on the power play unit with the elite Steven Stamkos. Palat should definitely get his fair share of points tonight.
Roman Josi, Nashville Predators: Josi is coming off of a 2 goal night, he gets Buffalo who isn’t great to put it nicely. Consider this your under the radar play of the day.
