Goalie Announcements (Feb 13)

As it normally does, a busy Tuesday leads to a less-than-busy Wednesday and here we are, only two games on the schedule tonight.  Not very busy at all.

Mikko Koskinen (Tony) versus Matt Murray (Scott)
Tony currently leads the pool in weekly scoring here in Week Twenty, up with 15 points, and he gets a visitor's start from the Edmonton Oilers in Pittsburgh tonight, as Mikko Koskinen gets the nod.  He'll face Matt Murray, who will give Scott another start this week, who sees his team doing fairly well with 9 points through two nights.  His team is hanging around the middle of the pack in weekly scoring, which isn't too bad, coming off a Basement Dweller nod.

Jacob Markstrom (Chelsea) versus Kevin Boyle (N/A)
Injuries, injuries and more injuries in the Anaheim crease, as Kevin Boyle will get his 1st career NHL start tonight, as both John Gibson and Chad Johnson have hit the Injured Reserve with their own individual injuries.  There was no timetable on either of them, but only Gibson is of a pool concern, I suppose.  The Ducks will take on the Canucks tonight and Jacob Markstrom will return to the net, after ending up with a night off, due to some muscle tightness on Monday.  Chelsea will indeed get this start, with her pool team doing alright at 10 points through two nights.  If the Canucks can sneak out a win, her team will be in a prime spot for the back half of the week, in terms of the Mover & Shaker.
