Recommendation: MacDonald has been money for those quick enough and astute enough to have snatched him off the free-agent pool or waiver wire. After Ty Conklin crashed and burned in the first game following Jimmy Howard's injury, MacDonald has been playing fairly well for anyone, let alone a career minor-leaguer. MacDonald has allowed just seven goals over the past four games, good for a 1.75 GAA. Howard could be back as early as this weekend, so the dream run could be nearing its end.
