Goalie Announcements (Oct 29)
On Wednesday night, only Ryan qualified for Week Five of the survivor pool, leaving six teams still in the dark, heading into Thursday night. On the plus side for those teams, it's a busy night on Thursday and they might just have some action to get their teams through to next week.
As mentioned in this morning's notes, Thomas Greiss will be getting the start for the Islanders, where he'll be taking on Eddie Lack and the Carolina Hurricanes, setting up a big goalie survivor pool match-up between Eric and Jeremy. Winner moves on, while the loser stresses for a little while longer.
Allan gets a pair of chances to stay in the competition on this busy Thursday night, as he'll have both Ben Bishop and Jeff Zatkoff going in separate games, as the Bolts take on the Avalanche and the Penguins play the second half of back-to-backs against the Sabres. Their opponents are either qualified or eliminated in the competition.
In the first game of back-to-back nights for the Montreal Canadiens, the team has decided to give the pool's best player, Carey Price, the Edmonton Oilers as his start, likely leaving Mike Condon for the start against Calgary on Friday night. The Habs will also play again on Sunday, so if John S. fails to get the win tonight from Price, he will have one more shot with him, if needed.
