This Saturday morning’s ESPN FHL scoreboard reflects the 2-3-0, 5th place team in the East Division and League leader in (PPP) power play points Team Alex also leading the League this week in (PF) points for and has built a 26.7 points lead over weekly matchup opponent Team Borowicz.
First place in the West Division Doughty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap in their inter-division matchup versus Team Beaulieu has earned a 16.2 points lead as well as a 0.2 of a point for the League’s overall (PF) points lead for this season.
First place in the East Division team Downton Flyers has kept pace with the League leader in (G) goals, (A) assists, and (SOG) shots on goal team Buffalo Winter as both teams have earned over 70 points while skating within two and a half points of each other.
Searching for their first weekly matchup victory coming from the West Division Team Beaty leading in only (PA) points against overall for the season has taken over 20 points near stranglehold lead over the 3-2-0 East Division team Buffalo Sabres a team looking to snap a two-week losing streak.
Second place team from the East Division the League leader in (SHP) shorthanded points and (BLK) blocks Team Fitzgerald has taken 16.1 points to lead over Team Iglesias in fourth place from the West Division and endeavours to win for the second consecutive week.
FHL team managers are afforded the use of an (IR) injured reserve option of sitting out a hurt player without losing him off the roster while being able to select a player from the waiver wire to temporarily fill the lineup spot.
Unfortunately, there are some team managers for whatever reason neglected this and some teams have multiple injured players with an open (IR) injured reserve spot on their roster, life is more important than any fantasy team and can get in the way of our five months long FHL season.
Fantasy Hockey requires a commitment of some time and effort each day in order to create an opportunity to acquire one of the four playoff spots available at the end of this season and there are still plenty of games left on the schedule to become successful.
SABRES NEWS 2 KNOW
In the middle of a three-game Canadian road trip, Buffalo visits Toronto with their unlucky seven-game winless stretch and the Sabres elected to go with Mr Luukkonen to back up Mr Anderson while Mr Houser continues to sit on the nest in Rochester.
This is the first meeting since the Sabres beat the Leafs 5-2 in the Tim Horton’s NHL Heritage Classic at the outdoor Tim Horton’s Field in Toronto.
AROUND THE LEAGUE
From Sunny and Seventies South West California to the Snow and Celsius of South West British Columbia Kings fans cheer on their team’s only goal of the game.
I appreciate the Canucks Reverse Retro sweater using the Lumberjack logo, in Buffalo the players can select what song is played when they score, if Vancouver does something similar I believe Monty Python has a tune about Lumberjacks.
The NHL has scheduled a smorgasbord of 30 out of 32 teams today beginning at one o’clock this afternoon so there is a game for almost every fan everywhere.
