NHL News And Notes 2/6

Tuesday, February 6, 2007


Marc-Andre Fleury, Pittsburgh Penguins - Fleury is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Predators, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette & the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Probability of start occurring: 90%

Tim Thomas, Boston Bruins - Thomas is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Capitals. Coach Dave Lewis indicated that he'd decide on a starting goalie after the morning skate so we'll probably have an update on this situation later today. Probability of start occurring: 75%

Olaf Kolzig, Washington Capitals - Kolzig is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Bruins. Probability of start occurring: 85%

Ryan Miller, Buffalo Sabres - Miller is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Thrashers. Probability of start occurring: 85%

Kari Lehtonen, Atlanta Thrashers - Lehtonen is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Sabres. Johan Hedberg is due for a start - likely later this week when the Thrashers embark on their Western road trip - but coach Bob Hartley seemed satisfied with Lehtonen's play in Saturday's loss to the Flyers. Probability of start occurring: 75%

Curtis Joseph, Phoenix Coyotes - Joseph is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets. Before Saturday's game, coach Wayne Gretzky indicated that he'd stick with Joseph as long as he was playing well and while CuJo took a loss that night, he faced 30 shots and allowed only one goal. Probability of start occurring: 75%

Fredrik Norrena, Columbus Blue Jackets - Norrena is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Coyotes. Probability of start occurring: 65%

Cam Ward, Carolina Hurricanes - Ward is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Canadiens. Probability of start occurring: 75%

David Aebischer, Montreal Canadiens - Aebischer is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Ward. Probability of start occurring: 65%

Kevin Weekes, New York Rangers - Weekes is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Devils. Probability of start occurring: 65%

Martin Brodeur, New Jersey Devils - Brodeur is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Rangers. Probability of start occurring: 85%

Tomas Vokoun, Nashville Predators
- Vokoun is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Penguins. This should probably be Chris Mason's start but we can't see coach Barry Trotz taking Vokoun out after a shutout. Probability of start occurring: 85%

Sean Burke, Los Angeles Kings - Burke is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Lightning. Mathieu Garon is off of injured reserve and ready to take over starting duties, but the 40-year old Burke won't give up his spot easily as he posted an impressive shutout over the Panthers on Saturday. Probability of start occurring: 75%

Johan Holmqvist, Tampa Bay Lightning
- Holmqvist is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Kings. Probability of start occurring: 75%

Andrew Raycroft, Toronto Maple Leafs
- Raycroft is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Blues. Probability of start occurring: 75%

Manny Legace, St. Louis Blues - Legace is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs. Probability of start occurring: 75%

Niklas Backstrom, Minnesota Wild - Backstrom is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Stars. Probability of start occurring: 85%

Marty Turco, Dallas Stars - Turco is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Wild. Probability of start occurring: 85%

Alex Auld, Florida Panthers - Auld is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Avalanche. Probability of start occurring: 65%

Jose Theodore, Colorado Avalanche
- Theodore is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Panthers. Probability of start occurring: 65%

Nikolai Khabibulin, Chicago Blackhawks - Khabibulin is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Flames. Probability of start occurring: 85%

Miikka Kiprusoff, Calgary Flames - Kiprusoff is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks. Probability of start occurring: 85%

Roberto Luongo, Vancouver Canucks - Luongo is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Oilers. Probability of start occurring: 85%

Dwayne Roloson, Edmonton Oilers
- Roloson is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Canucks. Probability of start occurring: 85%

Jean-Sebastien Giguere, Anaheim Ducks - Giguere is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Sharks. Probability of start occurring: 75%

Vesa Toskala, San Jose Sharks - Toskala is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Ducks. Evgeni Nabokov is sidelined with a groin injury so Nolan Schaefer will serve as the backup. Probability of start occurring: 85%

Manny Fernandez, Minnesota Wild - Fernandez could miss up to three more weeks with a knee injury, reports the St. Paul Pioneer-Press. This is obviously not what his fantasy owners wanted to hear but by the sounds of it, three weeks seems to the worst case scenario. Either way, Niklas Backstrom will take over starting duties in Fernandez's absence and he is an excellent pickup and start in all fantasy leagues until the end of February.

Year-to-date: 1513 / 1598 = 94.7%

Re: NHL News And Notes 2/6

Todd Bertuzzi, Florida Panthers - Bertuzzi has begun participating in full practices and his return to the Panthers lineup is "imminent", reports the Miami Herald. Bertuzzi stated that he'll make the call to return once he can get through two or three practices in a row without any pain in his surgically repaired back while coach Jacques Martin was a little bit more specific in saying that he thinks Bertuzzi will be back in a couple of weeks.

Frantisek Kaberle, Carolina Hurricanes - After missing the team's first 55 games due to shoulder surgery in September, Kaberle is set to make his return to the lineup Tuesday against the Canadiens, reports the Raleigh News & Observer. He'll be worked in gradually but could resume his role as the team's top offensive option from the blueline. Kaberle scored 47 points last year to lead all Hurricanes defenseman and while he may not be able to perform up to those standards, he is definitely someone to keep an eye on if you need help at the defense position.
