Daily Fantasy Hockey DFS Value Update – January 27

Edmonton Oilers at Vancouver Canucks

Edmonton snapped their six game losing streak last night with a 5-1 win at home against Nashville. Not a whole lot to get too excited about, though; that was three games in four nights on the road for Nashville and they’re not a very good team besides that. Of note is that besides the low underlying numbers for Nail Yakupov (a lot of that has to do with Score Effects), he’s managed to find his way back to the second line in Edmonton. He’s even on the second power play unit with his line mates so he’s starting to get the coach’s trust back (and that was the problem for most of the year).

Vancouver scored five goals last night against Phoenix, the first time the team has scored at least five in a game since December 14th. It is also the only time they’ve scored more than two goals in the previous eight games. The power play still isn’t coming around; they’ve converted just one chance in their previous 23 and are 10.4-percent since Christmas. Also, they’ll again be without Henrik Sedin as he continues to recover from various (vague) injuries.

This is a tough game to gauge as these are both teams playing some pretty bad hockey for the last month and both played last night. These teams met a week ago in Edmonton and it was a 2-1 win for Vancouver. In fact, Edmonton has only scored three goals on Vancouver in three games against them this year. I’ll be riding the Canucks fan bus tonight but I’ll be gripping the steering wheel with very tight fists.

Quick note: Yannick Weber made his way to the top power play unit last night with Vancouver. I’m not sure how long that lasts but it gives value at that position.
