Top Goalies

Marc-Andre Fleury / Robin Lehner (VGK) – I like whichever Vegas netminder we get in this game against the Blackhawks. Chicago played extremely well in their qualifying series against the fraudulent Edmonton Oilers and have the playoffs pedigree with Toews, Kane, Keith, and Crawford leading them. With all of that being said, in a game that should see some up and down action, I expect either MAF or Lehner to see a lot of work in net and be equal to the task; MAF with plenty of playoff experience and Lehner, a goalie who thrives with the more pucks he sees.

Tuukka Rask (BOS) – Rask should bounce back after losing two games in the round-robin series when he faced Tampa and Washington respectively. Carolina is a solid team but they do lack consistent scoring and quality scoring chances at times but do get pucks to the net. I’ll back Rask here and expect Boston to get their act together after an overall piss-poor showing during the round-robin series losing all three games.
