Hey everyone! Reid and I are back and after a quick review of something being thrown on the field at the Bills game, we start looking at a bunch of different things around the league that happened over the past five days. Devan Dubnyk piling up shutouts, Tuukka Rask winning every game and the goalie situations for the Islanders and Kings are the focus between the pipes. Offensively, Jakub Voracek and Colton Sceviour get the most discussion in the early going while Shea Weber‘s brilliant start and the mishandling of a few defensemen covers our blue line talk. We look at a few teams in the early going, notably the Wild and Rangers, who are off to blazing starts. Around the 45 minute mark, we hit on Marcus Johansson before we look at teams who are dominating or struggling in the possession side of things, mostly looking at Dallas and Nashville struggling. After that, we close things up with our picks for The Three Point Challenge in Tuesday night’s games. All of that and more in the latest edition of the Razzball Hockey Podcast!

Tuesday Streamers – Tonight is a massive slate with 12 games on the docket. Odds are you won’t need guys to stream but in case you do, here are my top 3 options:
Benoit Pouliot (3.5%) – While he only has 4 points in the early going, I think we see a strong effort tonight against a dismal Leafs defense. Benny is on the second power play unit and the minutes have been steadily increasing.
Alexander Wennberg (8.9%) – With 7 points in 7 games, I’m not sure why he’s so widely available. A matchup with the struggling Stars is a good spot to take advantage of right now.
Colton Sceviour (0.0%) – Okay, I’ll bite. With him on the second line and power play unit due to injuries, I’ll take my chances with him in deep leagues tonight.
I’ll be back with daily notes on Wednesday morning. As always, feel free to ask any questions or leave any comments below; please leave your picks for the Three Point Challenge below. Take care!
