Fake Hockey Help: Coyotes’ offense, Evgeni Nabokov, the shot-blocking Canadiens

Although most of the bigger names on Phoenix are 100-percent owned in ESPN leagues, there are still some players available who wouldn’t be a bad addition.

The Philadelphia Flyers split their four games this week. After a big win over the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Flyers dropped a bad one to the Montreal Canadiens where they looked all sorts of out of sorts against a team who was desperate for a win. Then, the Flyers continued looking discombobulated up until the end of the second period against the Winnipeg Jets in a crazy 17-goal back-and-forth shoot out at the Wells Fargo Center, the Jets barely getting out of dodge with a win they should have had locked up.
