How Did The Market React to Today’s Goalie Changes?
We’ve already covered a couple of games on tonight’s NHL slate in great length but there’s some pressing matters to attend to in the blue ice as there are some bad goalies in action.
Like with pitchers in baseball, the market will often go batty when there’s a change in net for an NHL team. There’s obviously good reason for this, as the difference between a team’s No. 1 and No. 2 can be drastic. So let’s have a look at how the market adjusted with a couple of today’s switches.
Louis Domingue, Tampa Bay Lightning
Tampa Bay is going with Louis Domingue against the Ottawa Senators tonight. The Bolts have one of the league’s best goalies in Andrei Vasilevskiy, but the 23-year-old Russian has already played in 50 games in his first year as a starter, so this is an opportunity to get Vasilevskiy some rest against a bad team.
