Goalie Announcements (Oct 16)
It was a productive night in the survivor pool, as a few teams qualified for Week Three with some wins, leaving only Derek & Dan, Stuart and Tony to be the only teams without wins in Week Two.
Both Stuart and Tony have shots at qualifying on Friday night, relieving the stress of leaving it to the last minute on the weekend to do so.
Stuart should have Ondrej Pavelec dressing for the Winnipeg Jets, as he takes on Karri Ramo (Brenda & Seward) and the Calgary Flames at the MTS Centre, kicking off the weekend. Pavelec has 1 win in two starts this season, so he has a decent shot at a result tonight.
On the other hand, Tony will have Darcy Kuemper making his first start of the season, as the Minnesota Wild are playing on back-to-back nights, taking on the Los Angeles Kings and their likely starter, Jonathan Quick (Benson). The Wild were 4-3 winners in Arizona last night and heading to LA, which hasn't been the toughest test for teams this year, but should still be a tough place to pick up a win.
If you're trying to catch our pool leader tonight, Neil will have a starter going as well. Cam Ward will get the start for the Hurricanes, as they take on the Red Wings in Detroit, Jimmy Howard (Stacey M.) is scheduled to get the start for the Wings.
