Race to the Sin Bin (Mar 25)
Well, this is beginning to look a lot less like a race now, as Wes' team has fallen to the wayside, thanks to an unlucky amount of injuries and absences from his lineup, while Derek & Dan's decision to not drop some of their key scoring players for absolute goons has worked in their favour, both in the overall scoring picture, 17th place, and in the PIM pool, a 58-minute lead, heading into Friday.
Much like the rookie pool, that Ryan is getting away with and the goalie survivor pool, that Allan claimed ages ago, this one is now getting out of hand and may only be updated sporadically, until the end of the year.
With three games on Good Friday, is there much left in the tank to talk about here?
I suppose there is always John R.'s trial to ascent the PIM pool standings for a top five finish. That's something. Tom Wilson of the Capitals will be playing against the Devils tonight and if it wasn't for an upper-body injury, he would be facing off against Jordin Tootoo, who was a pick-up for Wes this year. John's team only needs 29 minutes to make it to 5th place, something Wilson should be able to handle, I'd think.
Derek & Dan own the weekly race again, thanks to a huge night from Zack Kassian of the Oilers, then it is John R. next up in the weekly race, followed by a surprise team this week, in Grant. Grant's team sits at 16 minutes, through Thursday, but would need to double that total and add a minor penalty to catch the duo at the top this week.
