Premier Match-up

2 Live Drew vs. Slappyville Freezers

Slappyville wins 7-6!

MVP: Even with Alexander Semin on the team the Freezers didn't win goals or assists, so the credit has to go to Brian Elliott of Ottawa for helping the Freezers wrap up most of the goaltending categories.

LVP: Alex Steen: 0 G, 0 A, -3. Ugh. 

This was a match-up between the first- and third-place teams in the Smythe division, and the Slappyville Freezers just BARELY managed to get the win.


Wiki-Sharks vs. IAmJoe(Pavelski)

Tie: 6-6. Booooo.

MVP: Chris Neil is doing exactly what I picked him up to do, and his 12 penalty minutes helped me win that category this week.

MVP: Four goals in a week from Ryan Kesler is nothing to sneeze at. Or cough at. Or perform any other illness-related bodily function at.

Ties are boring.

Anzeholics Anonymous vs. Intaglio

Anzeholics wins 11-2!

MVP: Steven Stamkos will get it done for you.

LVP: The entire Intaglio goaltending staff. Cam Ward, Pascal Leclaire, and Chris Mason were all terrible last week, and the Anzeholics managed to win the goalie categories even with very weak numbers.

After suffering a slip-up last week the Anzeholics come roaring back to life and are still the team to beat.


Sleek and Destroy vs. Setoguchi's Revenge

Sleek wins 7-3!

MVP: Evgeni Malkin may finally be warming up, which is bad news for whoever has to play Sleek or the Penguins in the next few weeks.

LVP: Michael Del Zotto? More like Michael Del Zero!

Man that last joke was awesome.


Teal Blades vs. Kitten Mittens

Kitten Mittens wins 8-5!

MVP: Jack Johnson was good last week.

LVP: Brenden Morrow was bad last week.

Suddenly none of Kitten Mittens' four goalies are playing well - what will he do?




MVP: Tomas Plekanec helped Rudy get enough points to win even though he still isn't checking his team.

LVP: Maybe BROWS didn't have Ryan Smyth in the lineup on the right day? He got 0 points and was a minus 1.

Rudy manages to prevail in this battle of the basement dwellers.


Fournick Gators vs. McSorley's Stick

Fournick Gators wins 11-1!

MVP: Cam Fowler's four assists headed up a strong week for nearly all the Gators players.

LVP: Raffi Torres joined the team a week too late, and didn't contribute anything this week.

Matt Duchene was also bad for McSorley's Stick. It was a whole team effort.


Quid Pro Clowe vs. spades lil bandito's

spade wins 13-0!

MVP: Carey Price's three wins and a shutout helped spade win all the goalie categories.

LVP: Remember all those years ago when Jaroslav Halak was amazing? Halak certainly doesn't.

Jesus spade, show some mercy!
