Colorado Avalanche v Ottawa Senators

Please remember to keep refreshing this page or follow me on Twitter for the fastest updates. Here are your expected starting goalies for tonight:

  • No lineup changes for the Senators, implying Pascal Leclaire gets the nod in goal writes the Official Twitter Page of the Ottawa Senators.
  • Seth Rorabaugh’s Empty Netters puts Tomas Vokoun in nets.  Still no confirmation on the Pittsburgh goalie as this game is the second of back-to-back contests.
  • Similar story in Chicago as both the Blackhawks and the Ducks played last night.  If past history is any indicator it will be Antti Niemi against Jean-Sebastien Giguere, but I will confirmed later with links hopefully.
  • Should have the starters for the Buffalo vs. Montreal as well as the Flyers goalie up shortly.

NHLHS Endorsed Pickups

12/30/2009
Carolina Hurricanes v Dallas Stars

Any player written about is under 50 percent owned in Yahoo! leagues.

This week we will go over several streaking players in the NHL leading us to another extended version of NHLHS Endorsed Pickups.

Here are today’s picks:

C: Alexander Steen, St. Louis Blues –  Despite his position in most fantasy leagues, Steen plays left wing on the second line for the Blues.  Although this team deals with lack of production at times, this second generation forward continues to score at an alarming rate.  With nine points in his last five games the chemistry with current line-mates TJ Oshie and David Backes seems electric

Prognosis:  Hopefully Steen will gain LW eligibility.  Regardless, his production rivals many top fantasy superstars so ride him while he is hot!

C:  Tim Connolly, Buffalo Sabres –  With Derek Roy day-to-day, Connolly should get extended ice time.  This news comes on the heels of a four-game point streak in which this 28-year-old center produced six points.  Since the lockout, the Syracuse, New York, native averages nearly a point-per-game making him a safe bet in all formats.

Prognosis:  Another grab him while he is hot comment would fit here.  When healthy, Connolly makes a solid number two center in all formats.  If your league excludes PIMs, even better.
