More Player Notes in the Draft (Jan 11)

Only three games going on Sunday night, making it a pretty quiet night in the league.  Since I'm watching football, I thought I would have a quick look at the goalies.

The 5pm MT start sees Florida finish their Western Canada circuit with a stop in Edmonton and it looks like Roberto Luongo will go against Ben Scrivens.  In the pool, this is Stuart against Brenda & Seward, 15th visiting 11th in the standings.  Stuart goes into the night 17 points back of the duo and a Luongo win would draw him a bit closer.

In the 6pm start, the Blackhawks are playing host to the Wild and it looks like Corey Crawford against Niklas Backstrom tonight.  Dale C. has Crawford this year, while Brian has Backstrom and there is a 29-point disparity between the two sides in the pool, so it really isn't a key match-up tonight.  Dale has dropped down to 9th place in a bit of a tailspin, so he could really use a win tonight to start clawing his way back into the money spots.

Finally in Anaheim, the Ducks will be hosting the Jets on Teemu Selanne night and the home team will send their number one, Frederik Andersen, to go up against Ondrej Pavelec in a Western Conference battle.  Kristy & Don will have a chance to extend their lead with the home goalie, while the visiting goalie will try to move Stacey M. into 9th place, if everything goes well.

That's it, that's all we've got tonight.  Stay tuned tomorrow for the Newsletter!
