Monday Preview (14 Nights Left)

Well, just for a little more added interest, we have now added a seventh team to the Preview list, as John P. has managed to work his way into being 1 point behind Jeremy, who could still be considered in the running for a money spot, especially if one of those teams have an exceptional week in Week Twenty-Seven. They will have to stay within about 10 points of third place by the end of the week before they can be considered money worthy in Week Twenty-Eight. The more added intrigue, the better, I think.

This is what we know at the moment. We have a lead of only 8 points heading into this week, down 2 from the start of Week Twenty-Six. We have a different order from second through fifth, which is also quite interesting. Monday's schedule is quite light, but could also be a good jump start to the teams on the table, except for maybe our new team.

Opening up the week with a bang is Marcus, who has four players going in the three games tonight. Marcus has to make up 10 points to get himself back into the money spots and he will have to rely on some of his scoring forwards to do the business tonight and get himself back into the race. He will also face the cut-off for the money spots (of 10 points back of third), if his team isn't careful.

Four of the seven teams each have three players going tonight and there is only two of a possible six starting goalies in the top seven tonight as well. Peter and John B., both in the money, both have money goalies tonight, looking to earn key wins.

John P., our newcomer to the top money table, only has one player going tonight and it's Milan Michalek, who has been picking up his socks of late, re-gaining his scoring touch.

San Jose/Calgary looks to be the key match-up tonight, as only one team, Peter, doesn't have a player in the game and everyone else could make a move on him, if that game becomes a bit of a barn burner.
