    Start Lundqvist. Lundqvist will definitely see the net three times, Fasth will probably yield a couple starts to Hiller, on top of that Lundqvist is elite at his position, start your stud here.

    I don't care about the matchups - I would start Lundqvist every time.

    How is this even a question? Best goalie in the league vs. a guy who 'might' be the starter on some nights and is coming down from an insanely hot start, not to mention 11 total career games! Hiller is getting his groove back too. Lundquist hands down. Roll your stud.

    Not even remotely close. You gotta start Lundqvist, your stud goalie. Fasth will likely only play 2 games since he's splitting time with Hiller. Dont think Fasth has quite stolen the starting gig from Hiller yet. He is at best a 1a goalie right now and that could change quickly. He let in 4 goals last game and I expect Hiller to start the next game. Should Hiller have a strong game, I wouldn't be surprised to see Hiller start on Wed too. Lundqvist you know will be the starter in at least 3 games next week.

    I can't promise I'll try but I'll try to try.

    Agreed. The King is one of the handful of goalies who you'll start regardless of matchup

    PHO & CGY is not likely to score much. I think you'll win at least 2 of the 3 here. STL is a wash, they've been inconsistent with D and O this year.

    Lundqvist: PHI, NYI & WSH are high scoring teams. I think NYR will at least beat NYI, they usually do pretty well against PHI too. OTT gets real grindy so that's a wash.

    I would've went with Fasth if Hiller was still injured. Unfortunately, Fasth will probably only get at most 3 of the 4 matchups so I'd have to roll with the King.
