Going straight goalie on our four stars this morning.


4 Stars

#1 - Ryan Miller (G-BUF) - Miller shutout the Sharks, stopping all 36 shots

#2 - Jason LaBarbera (G-PHO) - LaBarbera also managed a shutout, stopping all 34 against Colorado

#3 - Kevin Poulin (G-NYI) - Who?  After Nathan Lawson surrendered 2 goals on 3 shots to the Oilers, Poulin stepped in to stop all 19 shots he faced.

#4 - Jose Theodore (G-MIN) - Theodore kept his win streak going, stopping 35 of 36 to win his 3rd in a row


Injury Update:

  • Sidney Crosby was a late scratch last night with an upper body injury
  • Matt Cooke also missed the game for personal reasons
  • Ilya Bryzgalov was also out for personal reasons yesterday
  • Dustin Byfuglien is questionable for tonight


Player Notes:

  • Carey Price was solid, stopping 31 of 32 to beat Pittsburgh in a shootout
  • Brent Johnson was just as good on the other side for Pittsburgh, stopping 22 of 23
  • Craig Anderson stopped 31 of 32, but got the loss to Phoenix
  • Jonathan Bernier gave up 5 goals last night, giving the Kings their 5th straight loss
  •  Jonas Gustavsson also gave up 5, but got the win for the Leafs in a shootout over the Blues
  • Sergei Kostitsyn and Colin Wilson each had a goal and two assists
  • Ville Leino had three assists for the Flyers in their win
  • Five players had 2 goals:
    • Danny Briere
    • Scott Hartnell
    • Talyor Pyatt
    • Patric Hornqvist
    • Phil Kessel
  • Dany Heatley fired 11 shots on net, but couldn't beat Ryan Miller
  • Thomas Vanek scored a goal in his third straight game



Recommended Starters for Daily Fantasy Hockey Tonight:

The Canucks have won 7 straight and have a favorable matchup against the Oilers tonight.  Should be an easy choice to start Cory Schneider (expected to get the start).  Some other likely winners include:

  • Ondrej Pavelec (ATL) vs Toronto
  • Corey Crawford (CHI) vs Ottawa
  • Jimmy Howard (DET) vs Calgary
