Monday, February 26th
As we kick off the final week of February, the National Hockey League presents us with a solid five-game slate on this Monday evening. The Colorado Avalanche, Tampa Bay Lightning and the Philadelphia Flyers are tonight’s biggest favorites, and the Vancouver Canucks are the only team playing on consecutive nights.
NOTE: Make sure to check the RotoGrinders Starting Goalies Page page prior to game time, to confirm that the goalies listed below are starting.
Semyon Varlamov, Colorado Avalanche – It is not often I target the Colorado Avalanche when looking for my cash game goalie, but that is the case tonight on this five-game slate. The Avalanche are the biggest favorite on the board this evening, and with the Vancouver Canucks’ inability to score (23rd overall in the National Hockey League in goals per game), Semyon Varlamov becomes the top option in goal. Varlamov may not see a ton of rubber in this contest, but the win is certainly in play, and there is definitely shutout potential here.
