Goalie Announcements (Oct 25)
Tuesday night was indeed a good night for the survivor pool, as five more teams have qualified for Week Five with wins, bringing our total number of qualified teams up to seven, leaving four to still need a win for this week. One would think that this wouldn't be too difficult for all the teams to qualify for next week, but that's why the games are being played.
Only two games on the docket for Wednesday night and only one of them has any survival relevance, but for the sake of a longer post, I will work on both games for us all. Just because I'm such a nice guy.
Chad Johnson (Wilton) versus Sergei Bobrovsky (Derek B.)
It is an all-Derek tilt in Columbus tonight, with Chad Johnson taking on Sergei Bobrovsky in a Sabres/Blue Jackets game. For some reason, NBC thinks this is a really big rivalry game for their broadcast tonight, so we'll let that be... there's no real sense in fighting it. Wilton has already qualified for next week, while Derek B. has already been eliminated, even with Bobrovsky on his side.
Eddie Lack (Neil) versus Jake Allen (Cam)
Cam is one of those teams in need of a win still this week and he gets a pretty good game with the Blues playing host to the traveling Flames, who are on back-to-back nights in the Central Division. Jake Allen will go for Cam's team tonight, while it is expected that the Flames will go with their backup, Eddie Lack. Neil's team has also been eliminated already from the competition, which is too bad for Lack and company.
