Goalie Announcements (Feb 2)
Well, now that the goalie survivor pool has been decided, we can now focus on the goalies who are helping out the teams to the big money.
Let's start at the top, where Brenda & Seward sit and they'll have one goalie going tonight, as Jonathan Quick is expected to take to the net for the Kings against the Coyotes and he'll be taking on rookie keeper, Louis Domingue (active next week).
The two teams that Jeremy's goalies belong to are going head-to-head tonight and only one is going... and it's not the All-Star. Al Montoya will get the call for the Panthers tonight, representing our 2nd place team, while Phillip Grubauer (non-pool) will go for the Capitals.
In the bronze medal spot, we have John P., and he'll have one starter going as well, as Craig Anderson goes for the Senators in Pittsburgh, taking on Marc-Andre Fleury (John R.) and the Penguins.
Nine more games highlight the opening night, post-All-Star break, and their goalies include James Reimer (John S.) versus Tuukka Rask (Dale C.) in Boston, Henrik Lundqvist (Derek & Dan) against Cory Schneider (Troy), while J-F Berube (non-pool) makes his first start in Brooklyn against Devan Dubnyk (Derek W.), Mike Condon (John R.) will go against Steve Mason (Derek W.) in Philadelphia, Pekka Rinne (Ryan) entertains Brian Elliott (Grant) in Nashville, Antti Niemi (Stacey M.) makes his fourth straight start in Winnipeg against Connor Hellebuyck (Allan), Corey Crawford (Stuart) gets the nod against Calvin Pickard (non-pool) in Colorado, Joonas Korpisalo (non-pool) gets another start in Edmonton against Cam Talbot (Brian) and finally, it will be Frederik Andersen (Benson) hosting Martin Jones (Scott) in Anaheim.
