Tonight's Preview

It was another plus night for the lead on Thursday, as Clayton's team managed to increase the lead from 13 points to 16, thanks to the huge shutout by Steve Mason against the Flames. John managed to also snake 4 points from that game with Kristian Huselius notching 4 assists in the 5-0 win. Peter managed to pull 3 more points back on Clayton, thanks in large part to Pekka Rinne's win, Marty Turco's shutout loss (1-0 in the shootout) and Ales Hemsky have 2 points. Marcus, Benson and Jeremy all didn't fare so well on Thursday night, dropping points from the lead and their current positions. Benson lost his third place spot and dropped to fifth, now 4 points out of the money.

Friday has some potential for points again, but not as much as Thursday.

In goal for Detroit, Chris Osgood will get the start, keeping Benson away from another start for Ty Conklin, which is bad news for him. Ryan Miller is set to return tonight for Buffalo. Good news for Jeremy. As of the timing of this post, the starter for Chicago was still unclear, but the odds are pointing to Nikolai Khabibulin for tonight, taking another start away from Cristobel Huet and Marcus.

Otherwise, it has been a pretty slow week for scoring in the pool, as we've only seen 246 points accumulated thus far and it's only another 6-game schedule tonight.
