My rankings use a Corsi-based rating system that I created, the average rating is 100 both offensively (OR) and defensively (DR). This rating is determined by factoring in Corsi, scoring chances, high danger chances, shooting percentage and save percentage. With the current rosters I have loaded, the Offense Rating (OR) ranges from a best of 115.1 (TOR) to a worst of 84.0 (DET), and the Defense Rating (DR) ranges from a best of 91.7 (STL) to a worst of 113.6 (NYR). These numbers will change daily with line changes, injuries and player call-ups. The ratings in the chart below represent adjusted match up ratings.
Monday's slate provides a good sized nine-game schedule, highlighted by a pair of Western tilts that should have a playoff feel with St. Louis traveling to division foe Nashville, and Vegas traveling to Dallas. Buffalo will be playing the second night of a Florida back-to-back as they travel to Tampa Bay, while Minnesota and Dallas play the front end of back-to-backs. Below is a chart of some of the Monday tournaments on FanDuel and DraftKings.
