getting close on him.”
09 ottobre, 2018 [09:24]
The NHL is celebrating something of a renaissance these days. Scoring is up across the league on the backs of an exciting new class of superstar talent that is setting the league on fire. Connor McDavid Womens Ryan Kerrigan Jersey , Auston Matthews, Nikita Kucherov and Patrik Laine are infusing a newfound excitement league-wide as elite scorers, all 24 and younger. While this group of young, offensive-minded talent paints a rosy picture for most hockey lovers, it's a different story for those tasked with keeping pucks out of the net.

As you might expect with goal totals up, goaltenders are having a tougher time doing their jobs. While it's still early in the 2017-18 season, an early offensive flurry has goalies sporting the league's highest goals against average in 12 years. Things don't get any better when you look at individual performances. Widely considered the league's best netminder, Carey Price has been unable to buoy his struggling Montreal Canadiens and has stumbled out to a 3.54 goals against average and a sub-.900 save percentage. It's not just one guy either, as the usually reliable group of Cory Schneider, Tuukka Rask, Roberto Luongo, Frederik Andersen and Devan Dubnyk have gotten off to slow starts.

Slow starts aside Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey , at least the aforementioned group can feel secure in their future in the league. They all remain the best option moving forward for their club between the pipes. That isn't true of every one of the league's 31 starting goalies, however. For some, this offensive onslaught could signal a slippery slope that might even have them out of the league in the not too distant future. Here are eight goalies that might be starters right now, but aren't all that far from being out of the league entirely.

16. On The Way Out: Semyon Varlamov

No, Semyon Varlamov is not the chief cause of the lowly Colorado Avalanche's woes - not even close. Despite star-caliber talent in Nathan Mackinnon and Gabriel Landeskog, the Avs have been mired in dysfunction, including the trade demands of Matt Duchene. Still, Varlamov hasn't exactly highlighted himself as an asset worth poaching by a contending club.

To his credit Authentic Melvin Gordon Jersey , the 29-year-old has put up solid numbers early this season while helping Colorado out to a decently respectable 5-4 start. Owing in part to being barraged with shots every night, Varlamov has posted a sparkling .929 save percentage. Of course, that's a pretty small sample size that can't be over-stated one season after he posted an .898 mark to go with a 3.38 goals against average. There may not be many takers for the netminder of the league-worst Avs, but a KHL offer could be enticing enough for the Russian-born Varlamov.

Three years after going undrafted out of Drury College, Trevor Richards has earned his first major league win.

Richards pitched six effective innings to lead the Miami Marlins to a 3-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night.

”It’s great, it’s good to get that one out of the way,” Richards said. ”It’s been too long so it’s good to get it done.”

Richards (1-3) allowed two hits in his seventh major league start. The 25-year-old right-hander struck out two and walked three.

”He’s been a good story, he’s thrown the ball well,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. ”Obviously Pitcher of the Year last year in the minor leagues, really good reports on his makeup and how he works, competes, and pays attention so it’s good to see guys like that have success.”

Richards walked the first two batters of the game before settling in.

”I got a little too excited for the game Scott Darling Jersey , a little amped up and lost mechanics,” Richards said. ”I was able to settle down and keep going.”

Brandon Crawford’s groundout in the first inning drove in the only run for the Giants, who had just three hits.

”Three hits, that’s not going to work,” manager Bruce Bochy said. ”We had a hard time getting guys on base and just getting something going. That’s the ballgame.”

Kyle Barraclough pitched a perfect ninth for his fourth save in six chances. He has not allowed a run over his last 14 games and a career-best 13 2/3 innings.

JT Riddle had a two-run double for Miami, and Starlin Castro had two hits and knocked in a run.

”Just enough,” Mattingly said.

San Francisco right-hander Chris Stratton (7-4) worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the second inning, but ran into trouble in the third when he again loaded the bases. This time, Castro singled in Derek Dietrich and Riddle followed with a two-run double to right field.

”I let it get away from me there,” Stratton said. ”I thought I made some really good pitches. Give them credit.”

Stratton then retired his final 13 batters. He allowed four hits in seven innings.


Riddle’s two-run double gave him his first multi-RBI game of the season and eighth of his career.

”(Stratton) left me a fastball over the middle of the plate after I had swung through two,” Riddle said. ”I was a little late on those so I was thinking he might come back with another one, he did Authentic Odell Beckham Jr Jersey , left it over the middle, and I put a pretty good swing on it.”


Giants: 1B Brandon Belt (appendix) is expected to join the team in Los Angeles later this week after making progress from emergency surgery on June 2. ”He soft-tossed in Arizona, threw, did quite a bit of baseball activities,” Bochy said. ”Tomorrow he’ll take regular batting practice so that’s the big step. If he feels fine doing that, then we’re getting close on him.”


Giants: LHP Andrew Suarez (2-4, 5.06 ERA) will start the third game of the series on Wednesday in his hometown for the first time in front of a number of family members and friends.

Marlins: LHP Caleb Smith (5-6, 3.70) is 5-4 with a 2.70 ERA over his last nine starts.
