    Sadly, I'd pass on him. You're going to have to be like me and hope Miller gets hot down the stretch like last year.

    I would. You are short on goalie games so playing matchups you'll risk missing out on some wins. Sure it's a tough one tonight but I feel you're in a position where you have to take a chance and play your goalies, especially Niemi being one of your top 2. That's just me though.
