There was supposed to be nine games tonight, but the New Jersey vs. Winnipeg game has been cancelled due to bad weather in New Jersey. Of those games you should be on the lookout for:
- Two of the NHL’s best teams (WSH + MIN) are both sliding right now and will go head-to-head tonight.
- Carey Price and Corey Crawford are both playing very well right now and will go head-to-head in Crawford’s hometown.
- The Eastern Conference playoff race is tightening up and there is a massive game between the Panthers and Maple Leafs tonight in Florida.
For those of you who have used this site for years, you have almost certainly seen my Daily Goalie rankings before. For those of you who are new, here is a little blow-by-blow.
On evenings where there are eight-plus games on the NHL schedule, I rank every goalie from 1-to-x (x=number of goalies playing that night) to help you decide which goalies to start that night. I take into account all standard Fantasy Hockey goalie statistics such as Wins, GAA and SV%. This is a fantastic tool for both year-long and daily fantasy players.
For year-long players, I am constantly faced with the questions: Pick two between Goalie X, Y or Z. Or something along those lines. Instead of answer each question individually, I have made it simple for anyone who has goalie questions to see who I would start. So, if Goalie X is ranked fourth, Goalie Y is ranked 2nd and Goalie Z is ranked 9th. Then you would start Goalies X and Y that night. Simple enough right! Good. Moving along.
For Daily players, I have listed the prices of each of tonight’s starting goalies from DraftKings. If you’ve built your roster and you have $8,200 left, then pick my top goalie under $8,200. Or if you start building your roster with the best goalie that night, pick my top goalie or upper-tier goalie with the best value.

Carolina Hurricanes: Cam Ward started the Hurricanes’ 8-4 win over the Islanders last night, so there’s a good chance Eddie Lack will get the back-to-back.
New York Islanders: If I was Garth Snow I probably would have recalled Jaroslav Halak from Bridgeport (AHL) and started him after last night’s debacle, but that hasn’t happened yet. Look for Thomas Greiss, who had the better of the brutal nights yesterday.
