NHL DFS Example Lineups: January 19

As a result, all three teams have reasonably similar implied goal totals. Of the three, Chicago has the best matchup. New York is facing a Jackets team that ranks top five in xGA/60 at 5v5, and Carolina is facing an Islanders team that ranks top five in actual goals allowed per game (Columbus is also third best in goals allowed per game).
