I'm back to satisfy the eager readers with coverage for the later games...
Showcasing for a trade?
Scott Clemmensen finally made his first start of the season and won on the road at Dallas. But more importantly, he recorded a 25-save shutout. Clemmensen was already arguably the most valuable goaltender available for trade and his strong performance further increases his value to potential buyers while giving the Panthers a ton of options. Heck, they could even stash Markstrom in the minors to give him experience and keep Clemmensen if they want.
Put me on the ice, coach!
In a rare feat, Stephen Weiss was plus-6 last night. What is even more amazing is that the entire team scored six times. He was on the ice for every goal. He added a goal, two assists and eight faceoff wins.
Meanwhile, Brian Campbell finished plus-5.
Welcome to the party, Bobby
Bobby Butler scored his first two goals of the year in a 3-1 win over the Flames. It was very timely as it was the difference between winning and losing in this one. That gives him four points in 10 games. He is not a complete player so he needs to produce to remain useful.
A pair of superstar wingers, Alex Ovechkin and Jarome Iginla, were kept off the score sheet while both finished minus-2. Their respective teams only scored once which was the prime reason why they both lost. Step up, boys!
Yes, that was an awful use of Kari Lehtonen's name. But equally awful was the egg he smashed on the face of his fantasy owners last night. He allowed six goals on 30 shots which really stings in H2H leagues (right, Carcillo?). He has lost two in a row but his overall season numbers are still great so here's hoping he gets back on track.
