Game 7 Ride or Die Lineups – DobberHockey
With Minnesota eliminated on Thursday, we only have a three-game slate left for this Saturday. With only six teams in action you might want to consider taking a position on one or two teams or if you are playing multiple lineups you can always spread it out and try to cover as much as possible in hopes of landing on one or two really, really good lineups. It doesn’t make much sense to me to write five teams in this article, so I’ll just give you the two I would take a stand on and try to win a tournament with.
But before that, a few reminders. Regardless of your team‘s preference, correlation is always king, especially on these very small slates. With only a handful of goals scored each day now, it’s also essential to collect as many assists as possible because those points go a long way now. To get the assist, your player obviously needs to be on the ice with the striker, so stacking evenly matched lines or power play units is key. Something to keep in mind when building queues.

The “I only play one lineup so I roll or die with it”
Tampa Bay – There will be a theme here. There are two teams in action, both at home, both in Canada, both under HUGE pressure, and both with stories of failing in the big moments. So until they prove they can win a game like this, they become the target of stacks. Toronto is the first of those two teams and even though I really believe Toronto is the better team, I can’t trust them here. The Lightning have been here before and know how to win. I’ll stack Mr. Playoffs Brayden Point ($5,300), with Nikita Kucherov ($7,300), Steven Stamkos ($6,800) and one from Victor Hedman ($7,000) or Mikhail Sergachev ($3,500).
Los Angeles – The other team I referred to above was Edmonton and while the Kings certainly don’t have the pedigree of the Lightning (anyway) they must feel like they have nothing to lose in Game 7 after being huge underdogs these series. Carl Grundstrom ($2,500) has been playing well since being pushed into the roster, so I’m going to layer him with Phillip Danault ($4,000) and Trevor Moore ($3,900) all skating together on the second line .

C – Vincent Trocheck ($3,600)
W- Seth Jarvis ($3,200)
D- Sean Durzi ($4,200)
Choice of goalkeeper
When in doubt, include your goalie in one of your roster’s team groups in hopes of securing victory if your group is performing well. Otherwise, consider:
Andrei Vasilevskiy ($7,800) – No surprise here given the thoughts above, and is there really another goalie you’d want for Game 7?
