Bruins @ Islanders

Curious to see which goalies are starting tonight, this is the first game of a back-to-back for both the Bruins and Islanders.

Ilya Sorokin is having a great year, currently 3rd in goals saved above expected per 60* behind 2nd place Juuse Saros and, of course, one Linus Ullmark. The reports I'm seeing are that the Isles are likely going to play Varlamov (who's a slight downgrade from Sorokin) tonight though. As for the Bruins, I don't think there's a wrong answer—Ullmark continues to be otherworldly, and Swayman has turned around his poor start to the season and is now currently 9th in goals saved above expected per 60. The Isles are better at 5v5 scoring than the Rangers, but are 27th in power play percentage. The Rangers are better defensively overall but middling in most offensive categories.

I think I go Swayman tonight and Ullmark tomorrow, but again, they're both playing well so maybe this is all moot.

*Minimum 10 games.

The Island
I go Sway here too. With a long season still to go and hopes for a long playoff run, getting Ullmark an extra day here and there could be important.

Is the mic setup just awful in there? It seems totally dead and the play feels like it's kind of reflecting that

Walk into the bathroom to pee, B's score. Walk into the bathroom to quickly brush my teeth before heading to dinner, B's score.

I should spend more time in the bathroom.

Having been a rather bad goalie myself I can spy when someone is fighting the puck. But Varlamov ain't that good to begin with! I do believe the Mort Report knows what I'm talking about.
