Fantasy Recap: May 31
By CHRIS NICHOLS -- SLAM! Sports
Tampa Bay 1 Calgary 0 (Series tied 2-2)
Nik Khabibulin matched Kipper's five shutout playoff mark with another 'Bulin Wall performance Monday night and the goose was Khabi's first since the start of the Montreal series... Brad Richards has scored the GWG for his team seven times in these playoffs, setting a new NHL record. Richards has 10G, 11A in all coming off his 79-point regular season... Dave Andreychuk is still motoring along and has scored all 13 of his points in the past 14 games...Dan Boyle has three points in the four games of this series and is obviously doing a good job of keeping his mind focused on hockey with his burned home surely weighing on his thoughts... Vinnie Lecavalier has points in only one of his past five games and he got thrashed in the face-off circle (Only 4 for 17)... Martin St. Louis failed to score a point in either game at the Saddledome... Jarome Iginla had six goals in eight games coming into Monday's shutout... Craig Conroy was 18 of 24 in the face-off circle, but had no points for the third straight game... Martin Gelinas has no points in three games, but you know he'll score the series-clincher if Calgary wins this thing... Miikka Kiprusoff has allowed one goal or less in five of his past six games.
