Florida put an old fashioned whooping on Toronto last night at the ACC by a score of 5-1.  Yes Phil Kessel did score the only goal for Toronto but it was a 38 save performance by Jose Theodore that was a bit of a surprise.  There are certain fantasy nuggets from last night that need to be mentioned but for the sake of brevity were on the twitter account last night.  Give it a follow @TheProgramBTR.  It is never a dull experience.

So let's take a quick look back and an even faster look ahead at tonight in the NHL.

 

A LOOK BACK......

Jamie Benn, F, Dallas Stars -- Benn is a fantasy beast in Dallas for years to come.  That was the quote I got from one scout last night who is just amazed at his constant work ethic.  Points are not as easy to come by in Dallas as they are looking right now.  His 19 points on the year should not be much of a surprise and his 3 points last night were a testament to his grit and determination.  Washington got hit by the "BENN EXPRESS" last night and had few answers, if any.

Adam Henrique, F, New Jersey Devils -- Sure he made a bit of a gaffe last night that could have been a huge one had they lost but Henrique atoned for his sins and sniped the game winner against Carolina last night.  A win in regulation has been rare to come by for New Jersey this year and it was a game they had to have.  Yes this Center will have his growing pains but it will be a fun ride indeed for people that own him in fantasy leagues at least until Travis Zajac gets back.

The Powerless Play -- The Chicago Blackhawks have the worst power play in the NHL and it is killing fantasy owners from here and there to everywhere.  Literally this has been something I have been hearing about since Week 1 in fantasy leagues.  At first, it was hey its early, there are no worries.  Now it has hit full panic and gets pub on Puck Daddy.  Now a month into the season guys like Marian Hossa, Patrick Kane, Patrick Sharp, and Jonathan Toews are answering questions that they should have answers to already.  It is more than just a passing concern and we will leave it at that.

 

SCHEDULE TIME:

Wednesday, November 9, 2011 TeamsNotes NY Rangers at Ottawa 7:30 PM | Gameday
Philadelphia at Tampa Bay 7:30 PM | Gameday
Nashville at Anaheim 10:00 PM | Gameday

It will be a light night in the NHL and as we have said there is not too much to keep an eye on but we have some quick hitters to throw at people as always.

 

OUR EYES ARE ON.....

The goaltending tonight -- This could be a rare night where the over hits in all three games though it is not likely, it is possible.  Ottawa can score goals and give them up.  Philly and Tampa are self explanatory here and well so are Nashville and Anaheim honestly.  Maybe our Team Turkey will not be a goalie but somehow we have our doubts.

Crosby Update -- We have no update other than this is "status quo" and his playing status is now up in the air for Friday, next Tuesday, and maybe beyond.  Information is tough to come by on this one so now we are advising fantasy players to just sit tight and wait for something more tangible as far as credible information.

 

Tonight we will be live tweeting as always plus there is the show too with the "Montreal Screwjob" theme starting at 8pm ET.  Be there!
