More technical issues yesterday with our host… we'll get that taken care of so you don't miss another minute of fine fantasy hockey coverage going forward.

#3 - Roberto Luongo (G-VAN) - Luongo helped the Canucks to their 7th straight win, stopping 43 of 44 shots
#4 - Pekka Rinne (G-NAS) - Rinne was spectacular, stopping 40 of 41 shots to beat Anaheim
- Ryan Getzlaf will be out another month
- The Islanders have an astounding 10 players on the inactive list right now, including: Streit, Okposo, Weight, DiPietro, Eaton, Comeau, Nielsen… it's a wonder they're winning games.

Recommended Starters for Daily Fantasy Hockey Tonight:
Plenty of interesting options to consider tonight.
- First off, you have to consider Philly against the Devils. No starter named yet, but Boucher is a fair bet.
- Next, look to St. Louis against Toronto. Halak is likely to start, and win.
- Try and pick a winner in the Islanders / Oilers matchup. The Islanders are injury-ridden, but have won 7 of their past 10. The Oilers have just 1 win in their last 10.
- Anderson (COL) is a cheap option against Phoenix
- Finally, consider starting Fleury against Montreal, though it's unclear if the Pens will go back to Fleury on back-to-back nights.
Here's my initial starters for tonight:
