12/22/2009
Chicago Blackhawks v Phoenix Coyotes

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

  • Cristobal Huet starting for the Blackhawks, via Twitter.  This game is the first of back-to-back games as the Hawks play the Red Wings tomorrow. This game is also the second of back-to-back games for the Sharks so we should get the starter closer to game time.
  • Similarly, the Avalanche played last night so there is no morning skate. Should have an update on them soon SEE BELOW.  As usual, the starter for Anaheim played close to the belt.  They, however did practice so we should see the back-t0-back schedule come to light soon enough.
  • The starters for Nashville and Vancouver will be announced following their morning skates, respectively. Pencil in Roberto Luongo, Pekka Rinne may still be recovering from the flu, will have an update on that later.

Daily Fantasy 3 Stars 12/16/2009

12/17/2009
Carolina Hurricanes v New Jersey Devils

In this section, I break down the top three fantasy hockey performers every night and cite why I chose them in particular. In addition, I will track the amount of times the players have received this honor and tally them at the end of the season. For the sake of clarity, I will be using Yahoo! standard categories (Forwards – G,A,+/-, PP, PIM, SOG; Goalies – W, GAA, SV%, SHO) and thus exclude player’s salaries.

A completely even disparity between offense and defense as exactly eight teams finished with two goals or less.  Of course 16 teams were in action.  Here are our standout fantasy stars for the evening:

THIRD STAR: Patrick Kane, Chicago Blackhawks (0-0-1) –  Kane really acted like an MVP last night for the Hawks.  The former first overall pick assisted on all three of his teams goals, including a powerplay tally from Brian Campbell, to lead his team to a 3-0 victory.  A native of Buffalo, New York the 21-year-old also fired two shots on goal, sat two minutes in the box and finished the evening a plus two.  Certainly an easy selection for third star of the evening.
