Goalie Announcements (Nov 19)
All three goalies featured in yesterday's post were winners, so both Stuart (twice!) and Jeremy earned their wins, so they're safe for another week, leaving only three teams left to earn their wins for the week.
It's going to be a reasonably busy night, with no late West Coast games to speak of. We'll know the fates of each team before bed time tonight. From the early indications, all six goalies from the three teams had a chance of playing tonight, but after the final counts, only four out of the six appear to be going.
Derek W. gets two shots at moving on tonight, starting with Devan Dubnyk going for the visiting Wild, taking on Jonas Gustavsson (non-pool) and the Bruins tonight, while his second shot starts at the same time, seeing Steve Mason start for the Flyers, as they host Martin Jones (Scott) and the Sharks.
In Ottawa, John P. will get a start from Craig Anderson, as the Sens play host to Curtis McElhinney (non-pool) and the Blue Jackets tonight. The Jackets are winners of three in a row, but they are not going with their number one tonight, so it will be a curious game for John.
Finally, Allan will get a start out of Ben Bishop, as the Lightning and Rangers go head-to-head again, an Eastern Conference Finals rematch and Henrik Lundqvist (Derek & Dan) will get the call at the other end, making this into a very interesting game. Might have to tune into this one.
Rounding out the night, for points sake, Scott will be the only other team in the pool who has both his goalies going, as Jake Allen is expected to be in net for the Blues, as they'll host Linus Ullmark (non-pool) and the Sabres.
