NHL Playoff Daily Recap - 4/15/2011

by chewy 15. April 2011 07:31


Goalie Notes:

  • Carey Price (MON) was outstanding, stopping all 31 shots he faced to beat Boston in Game 1
  • Ryan Miller (BUF) stopped all 35 shots to shutout the Flyers in Game 1
  • Sergei Bobrovsky (PHI) allowed just 1 goal on 26 shots in the loss to Buffalo


Skater Notes:

  • Brian Gionta (MON) kicked off the playoffs with a 2-goal performance
  • Scott Gomez (MON) assisted on both of Gionta's goals
  • Patrick Kaleta (BUF) scored the only goal of the game for Buffalo in the 1-0 win against Philly
  • Joe Pavelski (SJ) scored the OT winner for the Sharks
  • Ryan Clowe (SJ) finished with 3 assists on the night



Injury Update:

  • Henrik Zetterberg (DET) remains doubtful for game 2 on Saturday
  • Justin Williams (LA) made his return for LA last night



Recommended Starting Goalies for Daily Fantasy Hockey Tonight:


Draftstreet is taking a unique approach to their "daily" hockey offering in the playoffs.  They're stretching the contest to cover 2 days at a time, allowing more games to be included.  I like the approach, as it offers a wider selection of players every day. 


If you're new to Draftstreet, use promo code "LANDSHARK" for a 30% bonus on your first deposit.


Here are my goalie picks for today's contest (covering today and tomorrow):


1. Luongo (VAN) vs CHI -- The Canucks appear unstoppable right now.  Luongo looks to be on top of his game right now.


2. Fleury (PIT) vs TB -- The Pens may be the best defensive team in the playoffs, and Fleury was stellar in game 1.


3. Thomas (BOS) vs MON -- Price got the better of him in game 1, but I expect a full recovery on Saturday.
