Yes, so here we go with only a few games left.
Way to go JERKY BOYZ!! Backstrom with yet another shutout...too bad Luongo didn't come through tonight, but that would give you a total of 86 wins right now. Vancouver has 2 games to go, Minnesota one. Potential here for 3 more wins (6 total if shutouts!). We are probably looking at 2 more wins for a total of 88.
KACHURA'S KOOKS with another amazing performance from Lundqvist in NY. Turco not having as much luck in Dallas. 3 games to go. Maybe two more wins to go with the one already picked up this week and possibly a total of 86 wins for the year.
GOOD WILLS get a win from Vokoun, who finally played this week. Kipper losing yet another game, this time to SJ. We are all so busy watching the Leafs that no one is perhaps noticing the big fight between Colorado and Calgary. Colorado closing the game and you just KNOW it will come down to the final game Sunday night between these two clubs for the final playoff position. 3 more games for GM Commish and one victory to show. Probably 2 more wins (?) to finish with 84 for the year.
Lucky for LUMPY'S LIONS that Edmonton isn't playing Minnesota a third time (2 shutouts in a row already this week). However, they DO finish against Calgary, who will be looking for a win to knock out Colorado). Two wins from Brodeur already, but it's going to be a tough one on Sunday as NJ plays the Islanders, who might still be in it, depending on their Saturday game. I see 3 wins this week for LUMPY, for a total of 84 wins.
NEWMARKET M.L. missing out on the big Fleury win tonight. 3 more games to go.....will Detroit play Hasek or rest him? My bet is they will rest the old fuk and put Osgood in one more time, especially since Detroit has clinched the Western Division championship. Lehtonen (or is that "Let-Them-In"...thanks GM Kev!) might play once more, so GM Dave will likely finish with 80 victories.
Goalie Wins Category Prediction
12 JERKY BOYZ (88 wins) +2
11 KACHURA'S KOOKS (86 wins) -1
9.5 GOOD WILLS (84 wins) -0.5
9.5 LUMPY'S LIONS (84 wins) -0.5
8 NEWMARKET M.L. (80 wins) -
This would leave both JERKY BOYZ and NEWMARKET M.L. tied for first spot.
Tiebreaker goes to GM Dave unless JERKY BOYZ get another shutout which would rock the GAA category big time. We'll have to see!!
Also, potential for KACHURA'S KOOKS & GOOD WILLS to share 3rd-4th place honours. Tiebreak would go to KACHURA, but again, the GAA category could shift.
Whew!!! Have a great Easter guys!! Enjoy the scoreboard watching and we'll check in a bit later.
Any comments will be highly valued and greatly ignored.

PS: GM DAVE......JERKY BOYZ want to know if you've cleaned your pants out yet this week!!!
