Goalie Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
 
Henrik Lundqvist, G, NYR5/29/2015 10:54:00 PM
Description: Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist was incredible in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, but it wasn't enough as the Rangers lost to the Lightning, 2-0.
Insight: Lundqvist made some jaw-dropping saves, but ultimately, his team let him down, not scoring a single goal. Ben Bishop was good, but he really wasn't tested much. Lundqvist, who is 33 years old, is still searching for his first Stanley Cup.
Ben Bishop, G, TAM5/29/2015 10:52:00 PM
Description: Lightning goalie Ben Bishop joined elite company as he earned his second Game 7 shutout this postseason as Tampa Bay defeated New York, 2-0, and advanced to the Stanley Cup.
Insight: Patrick Roy and Tim Thomas are the only other goaltenders to earn two shutouts in Game 7 in one postseason. Bishop stopped all 22 shots he faced. He finished with a .889 save percentage, but Bishop won four games and that is what counts.
Corey Crawford, G, CHI5/27/2015 11:02:00 PM
Description: Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford was solid again, allowing just two goals on 32 shots in the, 5-2, victory in Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals on Wednesday.
Insight: Crawford made 30 saves in the victory. Crawford had a poor Game 5, allowing five goals, but he rebounded nicely for this one. He has a .920 save percentage in this series. Game 7 is on Saturday.
Frederik Andersen, G, ANA5/27/2015 10:59:00 PM
Description: Ducks goaltender Frederik Andersen had another poor showing in Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals as Anaheim lost to Chicago, 5-2.
Insight: Andersen allowed four goals on 22 shots, making just 18 saves in the game. The final score for Chicago was an empty-netter. In the last three games, Andersen has allowed 13 goals on 90 shots. Up until that point, Andersen was so stellar, but at this point, fantasy owners cannot count on Andersen showing up in Game 7, which is on Saturday.
Henrik Lundqvist, G, NYR5/26/2015 10:57:00 PM
Description: Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist had an off night, allowing three goals on 38 shots, but it was enough to force Game 7.
Insight: That's because New York scored seven goals, which is the most for the Rangers this postseason. Lundqvist wasn't bad as he actually made some really nice saves in key situations, but his final stat line was just ok. He has a .921 save percentage in what was his 11th victory this postseason. Game 7 is Friday.
Ben Bishop, G, TAM5/26/2015 10:26:00 PM
Description: Lightning goalie Ben Bishop was pulled during Tuesday's Game 6.
Insight: Bishop allowed five goals on 26 shots, and was done in by the three goals he gave up in the third period. He will be back in net for a do-or-die Game 7.
Ben Bishop, G, TAM5/25/2015 8:33:00 AM
Description: Lightning goalie Ben Bishop stopped all 26 shots he faced to lead Tampa Bay to a 2-0 victory and a 3-2 lead in the series.
Insight: Bishop has stopped 131-of-145 in the series, 90.3 percent. Not great, but good enough to win three games so far and slightly better than Henrik Lundqvist.
Corey Crawford, G, CHI5/24/2015 9:21:00 AM
Description: Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford had 47 saves in the, 5-4, double overtime victory on Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals on Saturday.
Insight: Crawford did allow four goals, but because of the heavy workload, his save percentage was still .922. This was also the first Crawford allowed more than three goals since Game 2 of the quarterfinals versus Nashville. Crawford is 7-3 with a .924 this postseason.
Frederik Andersen, G, ANA5/24/2015 9:12:00 AM
Description: Ducks goaltender Frederik Andersen had his worst game of the postseason in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals on Saturday.
Insight: Andersen made 35 saves, but he also allowed five goals. Andersen had allowed five goals in the previous nine periods. He is still 10-3 with a .929 save percentage this postseason. The Western Conference is tied, 2-2.
Andrew Hammond, G, OTT5/20/2015 1:47:00 PM
Description: The Senators and rookie goaltending sensation Andrew Hammond agreed to a three-year, $4.05 million contract.
Insight: Hammond led Ottawa to one of the most improbale playoff run, going 20-1-2 with a 1.79 GAA and .941 save percentage in 24 games. He didn't play as well in the playoffs, but it is hard to ignore the success he had during the regular season. Ottawa also has goaltenders Craig Anderson and Robin Lehner under contract, so look for one of them to be traded this summer.
Corey Crawford, G, CHI5/20/2015 9:20:00 AM
Description: Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford was fantastic in the, 3-2, triple overtime victory over the Ducks in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals.
Insight: Crawford turned aside 60 shots in what was the longest game in Blackhawks history. Since taking back over for Scott Darling, Crawford is 6-1 with a .948 save percentage and a 1.57 GAA. The series is tied, 1-1.
Frederik Andersen, G, ANA5/20/2015 9:16:00 AM
Description: Ducks goaltender Frederik Andersen made 53 saves in the triple overtime loss to the Blackhawks in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals.
Insight: Andersen and his counterpart, Corey Crawford, were just sensational. Chicago didn't score on even strength until the game-winning goal. Both teams had so many opportunities in overtime, and the goalies made the save after save. Andersen has been outstanding this postseason. He is 9-2 with a .933 save percentage.
Henrik Lundqvist, G, NYR5/18/2015 10:59:00 PM
Description: Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist had, by far, his worst game of the postseason as he allowed six goals in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals versus the Lightning.
Insight: Lundqvist didn't play as bad as the final stat line suggests, but he only made 20 saves on 26 shots. Three of the six goals came on the power play and another one was on a breakaway opportunity that Tampa Bay generated despite being down two men. Lundqvist is now 9-5 this postseason. The series is tied, 1-1.
Ben Bishop, G, TAM5/18/2015 10:57:00 PM
Description: Lightning goalie Ben Bishop played very well again, saving 35 shots as Tampa Bay beat the New York Rangers, 6-2, in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Monday.
Insight: Bishop made a huge save when the Lightning were only leading, 3-2. The big save kept the one-goal lead intact, and enabled Tampa Bay to go on the offensive and score three unanwered goals in the third period. Bishop is 9-6 this postseason.
Ben Bishop, G, TAM5/16/2015 3:42:00 PM
Description: Lightning goalie Ben Bishop played extremely well in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, but Tampa Bay lost, 2-1.
Insight: The Rangers really dominated Game 1 at times, particularly in the first period, but Bishop made some great saves to keep Tampa Bay in it. The Lightning tied the game on the power play in the third, but Bishop couldn't stop a shot that went off Dominic Moore's body. Bishop finished with 28 saves.
Henrik Lundqvist, G, NYR5/16/2015 3:40:00 PM
Description: Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist stopped 23 shots in the, 2-1, victory over the Lightning in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday.
Insight: Lundqvist only allowed one goal, which came with the Lightning on their deadly power play. Lundqvist and the Rangers, however, killed the final two penalties and scored with under three minutes to go in regulation. Lundqvist is 9-4-0 this postseason.
