The goalies below have been confirmed by a source:

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

David Aebischer, Montreal Canadiens - Aebischer is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Hurricanes, reports the Montreal Gazette. There really is no update on Cristobal Huet, but it appears as if he will miss a decent amount of time as we suspected since the Canadiens have recalled Jaroslav Halak, who could get the start today or tomorrow.

Martin Gerber, Ottawa Senators - Gerber is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Flyers, reports the official Senators website. He got a shutout his last game but it's still impossible for him to win the #1 job at the moment - even with Ray Emery's suspension.

Dominik Hasek, Detroit Red Wings - Hasek is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Coyotes, reports the Detroit News.

Niklas Backstrom, Minnesota Wild - Backstrom is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Predators, reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
