We are nearly one week into the NHL season and some goalies are off to hot starts, while others are struggling to find their way. Some storylines to keep an eye on tonight are:
- Martin Jones looks to continue his start in Washington; played very well versus familiar opponents (LA and ANA) but let’s see what he can do against a team from the East.
- Ben Bishop and Ryan Miller will start their second game in as many nights. It is never easy to start two nights in a row and it is even harder to trust a goalie doing it.
- Eddie Lack and Anders Nilsson will make their regular season debuts for the Hurricanes and Oilers–both had strong preseasons, but let’s see if they can translate it to the regular season.
The Daily Goalie Rankings includes DraftKings salaries as well as my top ‘Good Value’ and ‘Bad Value‘ one-day Fantasy Hockey goalie starts.
Rankings are based off of matchups, recent performance, injuries etc. and follow standard fantasy stats: Wins, GAA, SV%, SO.
