Saturday, February 3, 2007

Niklas Backstrom, Minnesota Wild - Backstrom is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Coyotes, reports the St. Paul Pioneer-Press. Coach Jacques Lemaire ruled out Manny Fernandez saying his injury hasn't healed.

Curtis Joseph, Phoenix Coyotes
- Joseph is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Wild, reports the Arizona Republic.

Tim Thomas, Boston Bruins - Thomas is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Hurricanes, reports the Boston Globe.

Kari Lehtonen, Atlanta Thrashers - Lehtonen is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Flyers, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Andrew Raycroft, Toronto Maple Leafs - Raycroft is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Senators, reports TSN.

Ray Emery, Ottawa Senators - Emery is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs, reports the official Senators website.

Peter Budaj, Colorado Avalanche - Budaj is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Oilers, reports the Rocky Mountain News. We figured that Jose Theodore would get the nod tonight based on his strong start last time out, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

Cristobal Huet, Montreal Canadiens - Huet is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Islanders, reports RDS.

Marc-Andre Fleury, Pittsburgh Penguins - Fleury is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Capitals, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Roberto Luongo, Vancouver Canucks - Luongo is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Flames.

Miikka Kiprusoff, Calgary Flames
- Kiprusoff is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Canucks.

Cam Ward, Carolina Hurricanes - Ward is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Bruins.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere, Anaheim Ducks - Giguere is the probable starter for Saturday's game agains the Predators.

Chris Mason, Nashville Predators - Mason is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Ducks. We're not sure who will be starting tonight for the Preds, but we'll list Mason since coach Barry Trotz suggested that he'll try to follow a two-games-to-one ration that favors Tomas Vokoun. If that is true, it's Mason's turn in net.

Marty Turco, Dallas Stars - Turco is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Blues.

Curtis Sanford, St. Louis Blues - Sanford is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Stars.

Sean Burke, Los Angeles Kings - Burke is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Panthers. He'll continue to start until Mathieu Garon is able to come off injured reserve at which time we expect the two goalies to more or less rotate starts.

Ed Belfour, Florida Panthers - Belfour is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Kings.

Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers - Lundqvist is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Lightning.

Johan Holmqvist, Tampa Bay Lightning
- Holmqvist is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Rangers. It's kind of strange that we may have two Finns (Kari Lehtonen and Antero Niittymaki) and two Swedes (Henrik Lundqvist and Holmqvist) possibly going head-to-head tonight.

Ryan Miller, Buffalo Sabres - Miller is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Devils. The possibility of a third consecutive start for Martin Biron definitely exists, but coach Lindy Ruff spoke as if he was ready to throw Miller back in saying that he didn't want to keep his young #1 goalie out of the crease for too long.

Martin Brodeur, New Jersey Devils - Brodeur is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Sabres. As amazing as it is, Brodeur is having arguably his best season ever and might start every game until the regular season ends.

Antero Niittymaki, Philadelphia Flyers
- Niittymaki is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Thrashers.

Vesa Toskala, San Jose Sharks - Toskala is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Blackhawks. Toskala seems to be as close as he ever has of shaking off the goalie rotation in San Jose. If you can only own one of the Sharks goalies, we'd recommend that it be Toskala.

Nikolai Khabibulin, Chicago Blackhawks - Khabibulin is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Sharks. Patrick Lalime is set to make his season debut next week and Brian Boucher remains in the mix as well, but Khabibulin is still the undisputed #1 goalie for coach Denis Savard.

Dwayne Roloson, Edmonton Oilers - Roloson is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Avalanche.

Rick DiPietro, New York Islanders - DiPietro is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Canadiens.

Olaf Kolzig, Washington Capitals - Kolzig is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Penguins. Backup Brent Johnson suffered an undisclosed injury during practice on Thursday and his status for tonight's game is unknown.

Year-to-date: 1480 / 1564 = 94.6%
