We’re back and after one funny mishap in the beginning, we’re all business.  As always, we run down the recent injuries, focusing on Henrik Lundqvist and Aaron Ekblad.  From there, we debate whether Brad Marchand is a first round pick next season, talk about Jaccob Slavin‘s huge game, some wingers in Pittsburgh that are must-own, a new streamer in Vancouver and Brayden Point‘s emergence.  The cold streak for the Capitals and the red hot Flames garner our attention before we make our Three Point Challenge picks.  Be sure to make your pick in the comments section below.  All of that and more on the latest edition of the Razzball Hockey Podcast brought to you by Harry’s Razors, SeatGeek and Draft!

EDIT: With Jets-Devils postponed, I will change my Three Point Challenge pick to Jamie Benn.

    Hay Viz It’s Playofftime in my league. And i want to discuss my goalie strategy with you.
    I’m having Dubnyk,Lehtonen and Kuemper
    My opponent is having Mason Schneider and he can stream Grubauer if he wants to.
    Categories are W,SV%,GAA,Svs, SO
    With Minnesota having 4 games and 1 Back to back i expect dubs to play 3 and Kuemper 1 game. (am i right?!)
    Dallas has 3 Games and 1 back to back so Lehtonen will probably get only 1 start.
    The Devils and the Flyers will both have 3 games left this week with 1 back to back so i think its going to be 2 more games for Schneider and Mason. With grubauer playing 0-1 game.
    I think i should definetly have chance for at least the wins and with the poor start for mason i hope i can secure SV% and GAA. Even if the Dubnyk matchup with Washington tonight is hard i think its the best idea to start him. What do you think about it ?
    Are my projections for played games right or do you think its going to be different ?

      @Saints: Yeah that all sounds right. There’s a chance Mason only gets one game but odds are you’re right with everything else. I would definitely start Dubnyk. I think that game plays extremely tight and regardless I wouldn’t sit any goalie on Tuesday when you have saves as a category. It looks like you can beat him on volume alone so go for it.

          @Saints: I don’t guarantee results but I think it’s the right decision. No problem at all! Sounds good, let’s get it.

      @Daniel Dalglish: I’ll go with Pominville, I think they’re virtually even so I’ll take him due to the extra game.

    Winnipeg/New Jersey game postponed for two weeks due to the weather. That helps their playoff schedules a bit.

        @Quick Sycamore: Very good point, that should really help those guys. The last two weeks having 6 games isn’t the end of the world but 5 was really bad when everyone else had 7-8
