Sens Look to Surprise Wild – DFS GAMEPLAN 1/22/18

A heavy Monday schedule for the NHL with six games scheduled.  Colorado is in Toronto looking to continue their streak – I think it ends tonight in a low scorer.  I like Ottawa in Minnesota.  It is one of those nights that the Sens will put up some points.  I would be very aware of the Buffalo at Calgary game.  I think it will be low scoring.  That will be a surprise to many, but I think Calgary will sputter coming off break.  Look for a Lightning explosion tonight.

Our goal is that you make us a daily resource and tool in your daily fantasy preparation.  We want you to gain a significant advantage in NHL DFS, I highly recommend you check out RotoQL. It is straight up as good as it gets in the DFS industry.

Brad Burud the owner/editor of the Inside Edge Hockey News. I am a huge fan of hockey, from youth hockey, to junior hockey, and of course professional hockey. I have played, coached, worked as statistician, and watched hockey all of my life. Hockey is not just a game, it is a lifestyle and family. The game of hockey is great! It can bring you nights of great enjoyment. It also brings nights where you feel like your team will never win. I am proud to be a journalist for the greatest game in the world. I have a degree in Business Administration, Psychology from Minot State University. I also have a Hockey General Manager and Scouting, and Sports Communications/Journalism degree from Sports Management Worldwide. I am also a member of the Sports Executives Association. Most of all I am a fan. Hockey is a huge part of my life and my families life.
