A tough decision can be made easier with these charts showing you the best five and worst five schedules for upcoming seven-day periods. Some of you used them last year but for the benefit of new readers here is a refresher. The number next to the team indicates the 'multiplier' to use on a player's point-per-game pace to give you an idea how many points to expect for that week.

I

f Ilya Bryzgalov is your go to goalie in your fantasy pool, you had better hope that he puts together solid starts in the few games the Coyotes play over the next week. Phoenix plays two games during schedules starting on Friday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, and having a whopping one game during the Wednesday-Tuesday schedule. If you were riding the hot streaks of Belanger and Korpikoski, drop them over the weekend.

 

Since their recent home stretch began eight games ago, the Preds have scored 29 goals (3.6 goals per game). They have two more games this upcoming week against the struggling Stars and Avalanche, as well as one against the Canucks.

 

While the Canucks have offensively dominated most teams in the league, they have only managed four goals in three games, going 1-2 against Nashville this year. Not that anyone would ever sit any Canucks this season, don’t let the presence of Pekka Rinne and Jonathan Quick later in the week scare you away; they face Atlanta and Columbus on Friday and Sunday.

Good site http://fantasy.sportsnet.ca/sp.../schedule1

Gives a good break down of teams schedules as well, been using it the past couple of years. Good for Mon-Sun pools. Still really like the breakdown you provide Dave awesome work!

Glitch Hi Dave, I think FLA and PIT on that same Sat-Fri schedule only play three games each. I think your computer doubled the first game of the week and added it to the end as well. Let me know if I'm wrong...it is Friday you know! smilies/wink.gif

Cheers!
