Fantasy Hockey Week 6 Forecaster - Plus Minus week for Kings Players.

Favorable schedules, who has an easy road ahead, who has it tough. 11/16/2015 - 11/22/2015.

Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

Goals Against - a low ranking means they let in lots of goals (Calgary usurped the Blue Jackets and is letting in 3.94 goals against per game, they are ranked #1).

Goals for - the lower the ranking the more the team scores (Montreal is scoring the most goals for per game at 3.65 and is the number 1 ranking).

So you want to face a team with a low GA and a high GF. This is based off this seasons goals for and against, it will be updated as the season progresses to be a larger aggregate of this year.

Number of games this week:
4 games: Anaheim Ducks, Columbus Blue Jackets, Detroit Red Wings, Montreal Canadiens, San Jose Sharks, St. Louis Blues and Vancouver Canucks.
3 Games: Arizona Coyotes, Boston Bruins, Buffalo Sabres, Carolina Hurricanes, Chicago Blackhawks, Colorado Avalanche, Dallas Stars, Florida Panthers, Los Angeles Kings, Minnesota Wild, NY Islanders, Nashville Predators, New Jersey Devils, Ottawa Senators, Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Tampa Bay Lightning, Toronto Maple Leafs, Washington Capitals and Winnipeg Jets.
2 Games: Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers and N.Y. Rangers

Favorable Offensive Matchups:
Toronto Maple Leafs - After a rough patch last week Toronto has one of the most favorable schedules for their offense this week. Colorado, Carolina and Boston are all allowing at least 2.8 goals against on average. 
New Jersey Devils - All of the games on the road but they face Calgary, who is allowing almost 4 goals against per game and Edmonton who is the 6th worst defensively right now. 
Chicago Blackhawks - The same three opponents - Calgary, Vancouver and Edmonton and ALSO on the road.

Unfavorable Offensive Matchups:
Detroit Red Wings - What a week to get  Pavel Datyuk back, one good matchup vs. Ottawa and 3 touch games. Washington, Los Angeles and St. Louis have all kept it within 2.29 goals against on average or less. 
Montreal Canadiens - Arizona is favorable with their recent struggles on defense but Vancouver and the Islanders (2x) are allowing 2.44 goals per game. 
Vancouver Canucks - Montreal, Chicago and New Jersey are all above average defensively while Winnipeg offers a better matchup with Ondrej Pavelec not at his best.

Favorable Defensive Matchups:
Los Angeles Kings - Do you have Jonathan Quick? Drew Doughty? Play Them this week. The Flyers, Red Wings and Hurricanes have all continued to struggle to score at 2 goals or less on average. 
St. Louis Blues - Colton Paryko and Alex PIetrangelo might have a good +/- this week facing Winnipeg, Columbus, Buffalo and Detroit. Only one (Winnipeg) is in the top 2/3 in the league scoring. 
San Jose Sharks - Martin Jones will be on the road all week but he faced Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Columbus. Just like the Blues on Boston is in the top 2/3 as the rest of them are scoring 2.4 goals or fewer.

Unfavorable Defensive Matchups:
New York Islanders - Arizona and Montreal x2. Montreal is scoring 3.65 goals per game and you have to face them twice. 
Buffalo Sabres - Much like the Islanders, Buffalo has double trouble only they face Dallas twice. The Stars are averaging 3.5 goals per game. 
Arizona Coyotes - The Islanders, Canadiens and Jets are all in the top half in goals scored. Worse yet, every game is away for them this week.
