Down to the wire

Final 3 days of the playoffs coming up. I'm dropping McGinn today as he has the weekend off. Since I'm obviously looking at players who play both Saturday and Sunday, my options are limited to Anaheim, Boston, Chicago, Minnesota, Ottawa, and Philadelphia players. Since I had to use one of my five weekly moves to replace Letang this week, I'm down to 4 moves remaining. My current Sunday roster has space for 1 F, 2 Util, and 3 D, so at least one player I pick up today and tomorrow will have to be a d-man.

The current matchup stats (my score/his score)are as follows:

G: 6/4 A:15/13 +-: -5/-6 PIM: 14/8 PPP: 5/4 GWG: 1/1 SOG: 64/66 W: 2/3 GAA: 2.28/2.16 SV%: .913/.926 SO: 2/0

In other words, the most ridiculously close across the board matchup I've come across this season.

I outnumber him 8 skaters to 6 on Friday (+Quick vs Dubnyk), currently even 10-10 on Saturday (+Elliott or Halak (and Quick?) vs Brodeur and Niemi), and am currently down 8 skaters to 9 on Sunday (with Fleury vs Dubnyk).

He has also used one of his five moves to replace Vokoun with Read, and I have to assume that while my drops tomorrow could likely go unrivaled, any moves I make on Saturday will be matched if they aren't already made before.

With all that being said, which stat categories/players should be my main focus? If Hitch decides to announce his Saturday starter tomorrow, I'll be able to drop a St. Louis goaltender and get an extra game in.

I won't give a full list of who's available because there seem to be too many variables, but think along the lines of low-end 2nd/higher-end 3rd line forwards, defensive defensemen, and the Minnesota Wild (I already have Koivu).

The Boston tap has pretty much run dry. A few backup tenders like Lehner could get a start. Could maybe find some philly value in Carle or Schenn? Should I target a PIM stat-pad like Rinaldo vs. the Pens? Any help; suggestions, tips, warnings, breast-related mind-calming distractions are all greatly appreciated.

Sorry to all for the somewhat messy stream of consciousness writing style, and thanks again for your help.
