Take that Lundy.
Henrik Lundqvist has now gone 16 games without a shutout. By this time last year, he had 4, and led the league with 10. It's time to let King Henrik go. Go ahead and pick up Ondrej Pavalec until Henrik gets a shutout... psyche.
Despite Lundy's struggles to post a shutout, he is tied for the league lead with 10 wins and has only let in 2 goals or more twice this season... TWICE!
He beat the Devils tonight for the 14th time in 16 games for his career.
Fantastically, keep Lundy active in all situations.
Bruce Boudreau's Frankenstein is alive. Fantasy freaks are finally rejoicing after Coach BB put Alex Semin, Nick Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin on a line together tonight. The Caps beat the Canes in a Southeast battle and the trio had their hand in every goal... EVERY GOAL! They combined for 12 points... 12 POINTS!! Semin had 2 & 3; Backs had 1 & 3 and OV had 1 & 2.
Fantastically, if you are an owner of any of these three, start sending your secret crush letters to Coach BB and book your ticket to the top of your league.
The Columbus Blue Jackets lost 5-2 tonight to the Phoenix Coyotes. Despite their 2 goals, Derick Brassard had his hand in 2 of them, tallying a G and an A.
Fantastically, if you haven't picked him up by now, you're probably too late. If he is still in the FA pool, you're league doesn't deserve to exist. Grab the leading Calder candidate now. Do not pay high for him in trade.
Craig Anderson posted a 24 save shutout over the Lightning... take that Lundy. Roberto Luongo goes for his 4th straight shutout tonight vs the Aves... take that Lundy.
Fantastically, if you want to grab Anderson, go ahead. But there is a reason why he is owne in 2% of Yahoo! leagues.
