This was a quirky, awesome hockey moment for everyone but the Carolina Hurricanes, but many fans were left wondering:
Does Marty Brodeur’s goal count in fantasy hockey?
We went to our guy Scott Pianowski over at Roto Arcade for the answer:
“In Yahoo!, no, sadly. I wish goalie assists did, too.
“I'm in a head-to-head league, hand scored, where goalie points count. It was a PPG, too. That's two bonus points to make someone happy.”
So no goals and no assists from goalies count in Yahoo! Fantasy Hockey, much to our chagrin. It’s those unexpected stats that can sometimes push a team ahead in a close head-to-head battle.
Alas, no goal for your fantasy team, Marty Brodeur owners. And no power-play goal. Hey, just be happy he didn’t up with the game-winner too.
