If I am to believe http://www.leftwinglock.com/starting-goalies/, Washington is going to run Holtby out there.
Holtby 13-11-2, 3.08, .910.
He's allowed at least 3 goals in 6 of his last 10, with no shutouts, and is facing the 12th ranked offense. Gotta pencil in Tampa Bay for a 4 spot here.
Tampa is supposed trot out Lindback.
Lindback 4-8-1, 3.11, .882.
He's allowed at least 3 goals in only 4 of his last 10, but he's allowed at least 2 in all 10, and he's facing the 10th ranked offense. Even on a bad game for Washington, gotta pencil them in for 2 goals; and that would be very disappointing.
Personally, I think the linesmaker must know Grubauer and Bishop are going to start. But even if they do, hell, in the last 10 times these teams have met the over 5.5 is 8-2!
This one looks so easy it makes me very nervous.
