Goalie Announcements (Nov 27)

Well, now that we're down to five teams in the goalie survivor pool, these posts are going to get really short, which isn't a bad thing. It means we're really getting somewhere!

It's going to be a busy week, with 50 games on the slate, likely giving the mini-game ample opportunity to stay at five teams for the time being, but we'll have to see how it will all play out.

Roberto Luongo (Stuart) versus Cory Schneider (Jeremy)
Jeremy is the only one of the five active teams in the mini-game to have action on Monday night and it isn't just one start, it's two.  The first is the reunion of former Canucks goalies, Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider in the swamps of Jersey, which usually makes for a pretty good game.  It's certainly not an easy game for Jeremy's first goalie, but with the way Jersey has been playing, it's not out of the question that the win will come early.

John Gibson (Tony) versus Corey Crawford (Jeremy)
In the late game of the five, it would be apropos that the newly-eliminated team belonging to Tony would get his first win as a spoiler right away.  The Blackhawks have been good again in recent weeks, so if Jeremy can't get a win early, the late game doesn't seem like a long shot either.  He might have to be the favourite now to win the mini-game with two quality goalies like his.
