What cut? Schenn scores in overtime for Flyers’ 3-2 victory in New Jersey

Despite allowing a goal in the final minute of regulation, the Philadelphia Flyers managed to leave the Prudential Center with the win, as Brayden Schenn potted the game-winner in overtime for the 3-2 decision over the New Jersey Devils. The tally gave the younger Schenn, who suffered a noticeable cut from a skate in the mid section, a two-point affair, while both Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell scored for Philly in the win. Ray Emery made 31 saves in the victory and played much better than anticipated, as only Adam Henrique and Michael Ryder were able to beat him tonight. Martin Brodeur suffered the …

Now, the focus has shifted to Claude Giroux being snubbed by Team Canada for the 2014 Olympics.

Fake Hockey Help: The goaltending carousel continues

Goaltending in fantasy hockey is the hardest thing to anticipate. There are rarely any locks when it comes to picking a good goaltender. For instance, Antti Niemi and Henrik Lundqvist were at the top of most preseason rankings for fantasy writers’ predictions, but both goaltenders haven’t fared as well as anticipated. Meanwhile, players like Ben Bishop, Josh Harding, Steve Mason, and Semyon Varlamov have all exceeded expectations. On top of unexpected outcomes, one has to stay on top of injury news and take advantage of backup goalies who will become their team’s starter for awhile, like Ben Scrivens, Marek Mazanec, …
