Top Goalies

Carey Price (MTL) - Price was very good in this first matchup allowing two goals, one of which came after a bad penalty and was deflected on the way in as he could do nothing about it. In a game that the Canadiens could have one if not for a couple of bad bounces and two posts/crossbars, Price still was decent enough. Tonight Price comes in with a $500 discount at $7200 and barring a complete meltdown, I don't see how he doesn't pay that off.

Darcy Kuemper (ARI) - Kuemper has been arguably the most impressive goalie in the playoffs thus far considering the volume he's seen. Kuemper has stopped 37 or more shots in four of his five games, including 37 in the first matchup with Colorado allowing three late goals after some defensive breakdowns and undisciplined play by Arizona. $7100 is the least expensive of all the netminders on the slate.

Semyon Varlamov (NYI) - With the Islanders matching up well with Washington with their strong defensive play, Varlamov might not see a boatload of shots, but he's more than capable of controlling the game in net and holding onto a lead as he's won three of his four starts this playoff allowing more than two goals just one.

GOOD LUCK!!
