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. Here’s what’s on tap for this afternoon’s starts. We’ll get you tonight’s starting goalies later today. We’ll also update this post when starters are confirmed.
1:00 PM ET games
Calgary @ Pittsburgh
Likely Calgary starter: Miikka Kiprusoff – He played yesterday, but the Flames pretty much always start Kipper don’t they? It would be quite a boost for Calgary if they could beat both Pennsylvania teams on the road in one weekend … (Source.)
Likely Pittsburgh starter: Brent Johnson – Marc-Andre Fleury has been absolutely fantastic so far in the last couple weeks, but it’s a back-to-back and John has been a good trooper this season, so why not give him the start? (Source.)
Philadelphia @ New Jersey
Likely Philadelphia starter: Sergei Bobrovsky – It’s no guarantee that “Bob” will be in net for the Flyers today, but that seems to be the guess some have made. (Source.)
Likely New Jersey starter: Johan Hedberg – After struggling like every other member of the Devils in the beginning of the season, it’s starting to look like “The Moose” might just help save their season. Maybe. (Source.)
