    Default Start Rask or Lunqvist tonight?

    I have both goalies and I'm not sure who I should start tonight. I'm leaning toward Lunqvist as NYR will not loss another one against the Bruins after losing 3-1 in the opneing night.

    Advices?

    i dont think either is a bad start...it'll probably be a 2-1 game to be honest with you

    You're not going to find a solid answer because these are two top tenders. Start both to get the Win and the ratios should be good.

    Prediction 2-1 Boston

    Just a hunch but I think Lundy posts a shutout tonight to get the Rags their first W of the season.

    It's a tough call really, but I would go with Lundqvist as he is the best goalie.
    Weekly H2H points only (Year 9 - 2015-16)
    12 teams limited keeper (keep 6 + 1 Rookie)
    13 round draft - Unlimited Trades - No Waivers - No IR
    4 Team Playoffs (last 2 reg. season weeks)
    Rookies are 23 years old or younger in the draft year and never reached 60pts (forward), 40pts (defense), 25 wins (goalie)


    Start : C RW LW Utility D D G
    Points : A - G = 1 pt W = 2 pts SO = 1pt

    C - S.Stamkos, J.Thornton, T.Teravainen
    LW - O.Palat, A.Ladd, C.Kreider, D.Perron
    RW - B.Wheeler, T.Toffoli, C.Atkinson, J.Silfverberg
    D - E.Karlsson, V.Hedman, J.Schultz, J.Trouba, A.Goligoski, D.Pouliot
    G - F.Andersen, D.Dubnyk, A.Niemi, K.Lehtonen

    I'd probably flip a coin... 2-2 going into overtime.
    My prediction.

    Okay similar question.
    I have Rask, Niemi and Backstrom.

    These are my goalie stats this week.
    W: 5 (opponent has 4)
    GAA: 1.81 (opponent has 2.44)
    SV%: .932 (opponent has .934)

    His goalies are Miller, Howard and Theodore.

    Now should I bank on beating him in GAA and SV and let him take the wins giving myself 2/3 categories or start Rask and hope for an improvement in my overall GAA and SV?
    The funny part is that out of the entire league we are the only 2 players who have over 3 wins this week with goalies - just happened to be slotted against eachother!

    His upcoming schedule:
    Theodore vs Ottawa, Philly
    Miller vs Carolina x2, Washington
    Howard vs Minnesota, Chicago

    My upcoming schedule:
    Niemi vs Coyotes, Colorado, Vancouver
    Backstrom vs Detroit, St.Louis,
    Rask vs Islanders
