Week Twenty-One starts today!
We get to start off the week with a survival game, which is down at the bottom of the three games on the schedule, but we do have one, so let's all get really excited!
Al Montoya (Marcin) versus Cory Schneider (Stuart)
The pool match-up is 12th versus 10th in the swamp, as Marcin trails Stuart's team by 14 points, at the start of play on Monday. Marcin hasn't seen many starts out of Montoya, since picking him up and his standing hasn't improved much since the Waiver Draft, but the stretch run could be a bit busier for back-ups across the league.
Mike Condon (Stacey C.) versus Andrei Vasilevskiy (Ryan)
The Age of Vasilevskiy begins in Tampa Bay with the trade of Ben Bishop to Los Angeles, as the new number one will get the start with the traveling Senators in town. The Sens are on back-to-back nights, hence the Condon start tonight.
Two money-hunting teams getting starts in this one, as Stacey starts 13 points back and Ryan is 23 points back. Ryan should get more minutes out of Vasilevskiy down the stretch, which could claw back some of those points before too long.
Jonathan Quick (Kristy & Don) versus Devan Dubnyk (John S.)
The survival game is going to be a doozy tonight, as two teams that upgraded their teams with trades on Sunday go head-to-head. The Kings are on the outside looking in, while the Wild are aiming to stay atop the West standings.
John gets his survival start and that's all that really matters in this game. The pool match-up is 20th versus 15th, so no money being won in the overall standings, but John could really use that win to keep his eye on that mini-game cash.
