Unless you're in one of those crazy leagues that doesn't have a trade deadline, you've already made your moves for a championship run. Now the only course of action is making you sure you start the right players and being diligent and smart on the waiver wire. With one month until the last day of the season on April 6, here's a rundown on goaltenders.
Jordan Binnington, Blues - Allowing three goals on 20 shots in a loss to the Stars on Saturday was a blip on the radar, but otherwise he's been quite the silent assassin, launching the Blues back into playoff contention and still three points ahead of the Stars. Since Jan. 1, only three goalies in the league have registered 15 wins: Andrei Vasilevskiy, Darcy Kuemper (we'll get to him) and, yes, Binnington. Despite playing just 20 games for the Blues, he's arguably their MVP.
Darcy Kuemper, Coyotes - The Coyotes looked like they were cooked after Kuemper went 1-6-0 in December, but since then he's gone 15-3-3 and they find themselves in the midst of a playoff race. He's one of a few twentysomething goalies who've managed to re-invent their careers this season. The Coyotes will face the Ducks twice, but four of their last five games are against Central Division playoff contenders, so fantasy owners might want to find another tendy for the stretch drive.
