The goalies below have been confirmed by a source:

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

Ed Belfour, Florida Panthers - Belfour is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Thrashers, reports the Miami Herald. It will be the 18-year veteran's 20th consecutive start - even more impressive when many wrote him off.

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

Joey MacDonald, Boston Bruins - MacDonald is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Flyers, reports the Boston Globe. Tim Thomas will go tomorrow as coach Dave Lewis has opted not to start MacDonald against his former team, the Red Wings.

David Aebischer, Montreal Canadiens - Aebischer is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Blues, reports the Montreal Gazette. Jaroslav Halak is probably overmatched in the big leagues as apart from a few wins to start his career, he's been very ordinary.


The goalies below have not been confirmed by any sources:

Martin Biron, Philadelphia Flyers - Biron is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Bruins.

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

Martin Brodeur, New Jersey Devils - Brodeur is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Sabres.

Ty Conklin, Buffalo Sabres - Conklin is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Devils. We're assuming that because Ryan Miller started last night, it will be Conklin manning the nets tonight. In any case, check back later for a hopeful update.

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

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

Brent Johnson, Washington Capitals - Johnson is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Islanders.

Rick DiPietro, New York Islanders - DiPietro is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Capitals. DiPietro has faced a lot of rubber over the past couple of games so we get a weird feeling that there's a chance Mike Dunham may get tonight's start instead.

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

Brian Boucher, Columbus Blue Jackets - Boucher is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Predators.

Tomas Vokoun, Nashville Predators - Vokoun is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets.

Nikolai Khabibulin, Chicago Blackhawks - Khabibulin is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Coyotes.

Mikael Tellqvist, Phoenix Coyotes - Tellqvist is the probable starter for Saturday's game against the Blackhawks.

Marc Denis, Tampa Bay Lightning - Denis 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 Lightning.

Hockey Today - March 10
Sat, Mar 10, 2007
By Associated Press


Tampa Bay at Calgary (10 p.m. EST). The Lighting and Flames meet for the first time since Game 7 of the 2003-04 Stanley Cup finals, won by Tampa Bay. Oddsmakers have the Flames listed as -168 favorites. The total is set at 5 1/2-goals.

STARS Friday

-Ryan Getzlaf, Ducks, had two goals and an assist to lead Anaheim to a 5-1 win over Edmonton.

-Henrik Sedin, Canucks, scored a breakaway goal with 1:30 left in overtime and Vancouver beat San Jose 2-1.

-Mikael Samuelsson, Red Wings, scored 3:26 into overtime to give Detroit a 3-2 win over Los Angeles.

-Dominic Moore, Wild, scored twice in the first period to ignite Minnesota's 5-1 win at Buffalo.

-Marty Turco, Stars, had 30 saves in Dallas' 3-0 win at Columbus.

SUSPENDED

New York Islanders forward Chris Simon was suspended indefinitely Friday by the NHL, one day after his vicious two-handed stick swing to the face of New York Rangers forward Ryan Hollweg. Simon, who was given a match penalty Thursday night for deliberate attempt to injure, was summoned to a league hearing set for Saturday.

ROBERTO'S RECORD

Roberto Luongo became Vancouver's single-season victories leader after a 2-1 overtime victory at San Jose on Friday night. Luongo earned his 39th victory to break Kirk McLean's franchise record for wins with 24 games still left in his debut season with the Canucks.

BLANKETY BLANKS

Columbus was shut out for a franchise-record 14th time this season after its 3-0 loss to Dallas on Friday night. The most shutouts ever against an NHL team is 20 set by Chicago in 1928-29. ... Both of Cam Ward's career regular-season shutouts have come against Washington, including his 25-save performance in Carolina's 3-0 win on Friday night. Ward had two shutouts during the playoffs en route to being the MVP of the Hurricanes' run to the title. But he never held an opponent without a goal during a regular-season game until Nov. 9 of this season - in a 5-0 victory over the Capitals.

WELCOME BACK

Mikael Samuelsson returned to the Detroit lineup after being out since late January with a broken bone in his foot and scored in overtime to give Detroit a 3-2 win over Los Angeles on Friday night.

ROAD WARRIORS

Minnesota is 12-3-2 in its past 17 road games after a 5-1 win at Buffalo on Friday night.

SICK BAY

Edmonton goalies Dwayne Roloson and backup Jussi Markkanen were both dealing with the flu entering Friday night's contest at Anaheim. Markkanen got the start and allowed a goal on the only shot he faced 1:18 into the game before being replaced by Roloson, who completed the Oilers' 5-1 defeat.

UP AND COMER

Third-string goaltender Josh Harding made 35 saves in helping Minnesota defeat Buffalo 5-1 on Friday night. Since being called up from AHL Houston in January, Harding has stopped 90 of 92 shots in four games, and came within four minutes of picking up his second straight shutout on Friday.

STRONG IN DEFEAT

Sean Burke made 51 saves, but Los Angeles lost in overtime at Detroit 3-2.

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT

Washington has lost six straight and 11 of 12 after its 3-0 setback to Carolina.

SPEAKING

''The organization did their homework with their goalies this year,'' - Minnesota's Brian Rolston on third-string goalie Josh Harding, who made 35 saves in Friday night's 5-1 win at Buffalo. Harding, who is sharing time with regulars Manny Fernandez and rookie Niklas Backstrom, has stopped 90 of 92 shots in four games since being called up from AHL Houston in January.
