Cups & Pucks Fanstasy hockey league is in session! After continuous battles during the week, the match-ups opened up at the end and several teams were humiliated. These blowouts included Soft Dump beating FSU Bulldogs (formerly T-Money Holla) 7-1, Race for Icing beating Overpaid Convicts 7-2, and Kessellate triumphing over Stiff Masta Flex 6-2.
The close battles rested between P.K. Chang’s vs. Tony’s and Team Stepan Your Toews vs. Nightmare on Helm Street.
P.K. Chang’s and Tony’s Team ended up tied at 4-4-2. Unfortunately, there are no shootouts in fantasy hockey so the better team will have to be decided later on in the season. P.K. Subban put the “P.K.” in P.K. Chang’s after he posted an impressive seven points and a +6 in the first week. Corey Perry, Niklas Kronwall, and Pavel Datsyuk also helped contribute to P.K. Chang’s high scoring game.
On Tony’s side, Steven Stamkos posted four goals, three assists, and went +3 in the first week. Alex Pietrangelo and Tobias Enstrom lead his defense with a total of 11 points. P.A. Parenteau, Taylor Hall, and Nicklas Backstrom all posted impressive numbers as well.
At one point, Stepan Your Toews had the shutout going, leading Nightmare on Helm Street 10-0, but every category was within a point of each other. The battle eventually went to Stepan Your Toews, who won by a sliver, 5-4. Alex Galchenyuk (MTL,FW) had a great week for Stepan Your Toews posting five points and a +/- of +4. Tyler Seguin lead Nightmare on Helm Street’s squad with six points. Goaltending was in Nightmare on Helm Street’s favor at a spectacular .926 save percentage and 2.26 goals against average.
