Goalie Announcements (Jan 27)
Thanks to Connor Hellebuyck last night, Allan has indeed set himself up for Week Eighteen, at the very least, awaiting the results of tonight's games, to see whether or not he's our goalie survivor winner.
Standing in his way tonight is Braden Holtby of the Capitals, who is Jeremy's only start this week and he gets the Philadelphia Flyers, at home, and with Michal Neuvirth (Neil) in the other net tonight. The Capitals won the first meeting between these two sides, 5-2 in Philly in November, Holtby making 18 saves for the win. A must-win for Jeremy tonight!
In the other games tonight, we should have Jonathan Bernier (Cindy) versus Andrei Vasilevskiy (Mike) in Tampa Bay, Carter Hutton (Dropped) against Karri Ramo (Brenda & Seward) in Calgary and then Calvin Pickard (non-pool) against Jonathan Quick (Brenda & Seward).
It looks like the rich are getting richer in goalie points tonight, eh? The pool's leading duo this year gets two more starts to end the week... increasing their chances of a Mover & Shaker in the Newsletter again.
