Goalie Announcements (Feb 28)

It looked like it was quite the battle, but John S. got his win last night, thanks to the Minnesota Wild scoring in overtime for a 5-4 win over the Kings. Devan Dubnyk was huge in that one, making 26 saves and bringing John to safety for this week.

Now the focus shifts to Stacey M.'s team and her chances to get into Week Twenty-Two, as this week only begins to really kick off tonight.  The NHL schedule is 12 games deep, but we'll only focus on Stacey's team in this post today.

Braden Holtby (Jeremy) versus Henrik Lundqvist (Grant)
The New York Rangers are comfortable in a wild card spot in the East, but they could be back in the top three of the Metropolitan Division with a win tonight, but they will go up against the division leaders to do so, which is no tough task.  Should be the number ones here tonight, expecting Holtby versus Lundqvist, keeping Stacey's goalie on the bench as a back-up.

Pekka Rinne (Stacey M.) versus Linus Ullmark (N/A)
Between an injury to the number one guy and their number two a prime target at the trade deadline, the Buffalo Sabres are going with their current number three, Linus Ullmark and he'll be the opposition of Stacey's only shot at a win tonight, as Pekka Rinne will be in net for the Predators when they visit those same Sabres.
