AT THE ENDS

2008 - Ryan Miller 37 2185 21 11 4 3 91 2.50 1105 1014 .918 3


I'm going with Miller as a guess; haven't seen anything to suggest otherwise.

2008 - Tomas Vokoun 30 1576 12 12 2 4 71 2.70 861 790 .918 3


No such doubts about T-Vo...Coach DeBoer announced as much yesterday.

DIVISIONALLY SPEAKING


Southeast Standings

Washington 46 29 14 3 61
Florida 44 21 16 7 49
Carolina 46 21 20 5 47

(updated 1.18.2009 at 8:07 AM EST)



  • Washington @ NY Islanders, 2p. An old Patrick Division matchup with none of the sense of mystery.
  • Carolina @ Toronto, 7:30p. Paul Maurice returns to the loving embrace of his loyal fans and media in Ontario.
  • Dallas @ Tampa Bay, 7:30p. Brad Richards comes home; probably get the best ovation of the night.

KEEP AN EYE ON:

  • New Jersey @ Nashville, 8p. The Predators can play uber-spoiler by stealing a point or two from the Devils, but don't bank on it.
