    Default Holtby or Murray tonight?

    Hey all,

    I am having a hard time trying to decide who to start tonight for the Pens/Caps game. I have 2 goalie positions. I am putting Binnington in one and either Holtby or Murray in the other. Vegas Insider is giving the Pens a better chance to win. Team is in Sig.

    Thank you.

    I think Washington takes it tonight. Probably just me being negative because I'm starting Murray.....but that is my opinion.

    Not touching either.
    Murray has been really great, REALLY REALLY GREAT. But..
    Murray career vs Caps, 3.62GAA, .885SV%
    I could easily see a 5-4 game.

    As I own many players from both teams, I hope this game is a barn burner. I don't expect any SO in this one, just want the two points for the win.

    That is my situation. Even though I got a SO last night....my goalies have rarely been able to get me GAA or SV% in a week this year. So I can't just bench him tonight.

    I'd gamble on Murray since he's home and he's the Vegas favorite.

    I'd go with Murray. He's been really good and Pittsburg recently halted the Boston point streak. Plus they have to be the more desperate team at this point in the season given the standings.

    Wsh - only once in last 6 games they've given up a 3rd goal. I'd rather bench both, but if I have to start one, I lean Holtby

    Lots of good chances for the caps in this one, Murray played well.
