THE GOALIE EDGE: 11/02/2013

ALL GOALIES CONFIRMED UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED AT TIME OF PRINT

The Brodeur of old has been on display during New Jersey’s modest two-game win streak, so look for the future HOF’er to have his way against a Philadelphia team which is coming off a 7-0 drubbing last night. To add insult to injury, the Flyers will be without their hottest forward Vincent Lecavalier due to injury. Go Brodeur.. “King Henrik” is coming off a shutout of the Buffalo Sabres, so look for Carolina to be easy prey for the surging Rangers. The Canes might be going with their fourth-stringer in goal tonight, so huge edge belongs to Lundqvist.. After a heart-breaking loss to Boston, Jonas Hiller and the Ducks will be plenty motivated against a struggling Buffalo team, who has only mustered two wins all season. Hiller all day... The Isles were impressive in coming back on the road against Ottawa, but they will find it tough against Boston at home. Chad Johnson will be in net, but the “B’s” should prevail. The chemistry between Tavares and Vanek is still developing, so expect some bumps on the road for New York. Take Johnson.. We love Corey Crawford and the Blackhawks to gain their third straight victory against Winnipeg, who could be flat in their first game at home after their road trip and very deflated after blowing a lead at St. Louis. Edge to Crawford.. Out West, Jonathan Quick(LIKELY) and Antti Niemi(LIKELY) should lead their respective teams, LA and San Jose to wins. Carter Hutton is not the answer for Nashville and Mike Smith plays better at home. Period..
