Fantasy Hockey: Weekly Forecaster 10/24 - 10/30

Favorable schedules, matchups and teams for the week ahead.

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

Below is the average of ‘CORSI For' on the Home team and Away team to tell me if this is going to be a shot filled matchup. The graph below is sorted from the most offensively oriented games to the least offensively oriented. To put it in a nutshell, if you want goals scored -€” look at the top teams, if you want to see where your goalie will be seeing few shots and have the best opportunity look to the bottom.

Offensively charged team -€” Montreal Canadiens: They are the third highest scoring team in the league, they got Carey Price back and they are headed into a week with 4 games against 3 teams who are in the bottom half of the league in goals allowed. Edmonton Oilers and Ottawa Senators are the only two who have scored more but both are in unfavorable matchup weeks and if at all possible I would avoid.

Defensively charged team -€” New Jersey Devils. Guess who has allowed the four fewest goals? Guess who is headed into a week against some very low CORSI For matchups? Guess who is facing the team with the 5thfewest goals in the league? These were semi-rhetorical questions but I'm guess you've figured out by now who it is.

Offensive Difficulties: Arizona Coyotes -€” They've scored the 7th fewest goals so far. They face off against New Jersey and Colorado (both in the top half of the league for fewest goals allowed) and the CORSI For in these matchups is fairly low.

Defensive Difficulties: San Jose Sharks -€” Now this is going out on a limb BUT San Jose has allowed the 7th most goals against (partly because they played 5 games vs. 4 for most other teams) and they face off against three teams all in the bottom 7 in goals scored, so something has to give here. I think one of these games nets 5 goals against for them while the other two are 3+. All games are on the road for them and all games are projected for a high Corsi For.
