Whether you’re interested for fantasy hockey reasons or just want to know which goalie your team is playing in a given day, we thought it might be helpful to share our best guesses (based on various previews from newspapers and Web sites plus our own instincts) on who might start each day.
12:30 pm ET game
Edmonton @ NY Rangers
Likely Edmonton starter: Nikolai Khabibulin – He didn’t play in last night’s half of a back-to-back for the Oilers, so the smart money is on “The Bulin Wall” tonight. (Gut reaction.)
Likely NY Rangers starter: Martin Biron – Chances are pretty strong that, with an odd start time like this, the backup will get the call. It’s no guarantee, but these are the type of games that Biron was signed to play. (Gut reaction)
Predictions for the day’s other three games will come soon.
