Goalie Announcements (Nov 28)

Out of two starts last night, Jeremy was able to get his one win, as Corey Crawford and the Blackhawks laid waste to the Ducks, qualifying him for Week Ten nice and early.

With Jeremy all done, that leaves four teams left to get the job done, but only two of those teams have the possibility of starts tonight, which is strange for a Tuesday, since it is usually the busiest day of the work week, but that's the way it's going to be tonight.

Andrei Vasilevskiy (Wilton) versus Robin Lehner (Kristy & Don)
This could have been an all-Wilton game, if the Sabres were nice enough to put Chad Johnson in their crease tonight, but oh no, they won't be doing anyone any favours like that tonight.  Instead, Wilton will have to go at it with only one goalie, but to his credit, Andrei Vasilevskiy and the Lightning would be the horse I would bet on, regardless.  Kristy & Don are back in the hunt for the money, so they are quite hopeful that Buffalo could pull off the upset tonight at home.

Jonathan Quick (Chris) versus Jimmy Howard (Dale C.)
It doesn't look like Petr Mrazek is going to get any platoon work in the early part of this season, so he'll continue to be the guy that works the second half of back-to-backs.  Instead tonight, it will be a money race match-up, as Chris' 10th place team will look to close the 18-point gap to the money spots with Quick and the Kings, while Dale C. only has a 10-point gap to close with Howard and the Red Wings.

Frederik Andersen (Mike) versus Mike Smith (Ryan)
The Maple Leafs are in Calgary to start their annual Western Canada road swing and this is a game where Mike is expected to get a start, as Frederik Andersen should take to the visitors crease for the better part of this trip, since the schedule is really working out for him that way, games every other day.  At the other side tonight, it is expected to be Mike Smith, giving a spoiler start to Ryan's team.  Should be a great match-up tonight.
