7:30 pm ET game

Boston @ NY Rangers

Likely Boston starter: Tim Thomas (Source.)

Likely NY Rangers starter: Henrik Lundqvist – Again, every indication is that Lundqvist will play all of the Rangers’ remaining games, unless there’s an instance in which they already clinched a spot and their seeding won’t be affected.

5:00 pm ET games

Minnesota @ Detroit

Likely Minnesota starter: Jose Theodore (Source.)

Likely Detroit starter: Joey MacDonald (Source.)

St. Louis @ Columbus

Likely St. Louis starter: Jaroslav Halak – My best guess (which might be a bit of a theme, maybe because of the unusual start times today).

Likely Columbus starter: Mathieu Garon – A safer guess, because it sounds like Steve Mason might be dealing with an undisclosed injury. Can’t promise you about this one, either, though.

Buffalo @ Carolina

Likely Buffalo starter: Jhonas Enroth (Source.)

Likely Carolina starter: Cam Ward (Source.)

7:00 pm ET game

Tampa Bay @ Chicago

Likely Tampa Bay starter: Mike Smith (Source.)

Likely Chicago starter: Corey Crawford – A reasonable guess considering how important this game is for the Blackhawks (and the fact that he’s been getting almost every start).

8:00 pm ET games

Calgary @ Colorado

Likely Calgary starter: Miikka Kiprusoff (Source.)

Likely Colorado starter: Brian Elliott – Another toss-up, but hopefully you aren’t counting on an Avs goalie for fantasy hockey points anyway.

Dallas @ Anaheim

Likely Dallas starter: Kari Lehtonen – Tough to imagine the Stars going away from their workhorse during such an important game, even in back-to-backs. (Source.)

Likely Anaheim starter: Ray Emery – It’s quite possible that Dan Ellis could get the start, being that Emery is still coming off a scary injury and these are back-to-back games. Yet my gut instinct says Emery.
