NHL news and notes: March 13

Tuesday, March 13, 2007

The goalies below have been confirmed by a source:

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

Ray Emery, Ottawa Senators - Emery is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Rangers, reports the official Senators website.

John Grahame, Carolina Hurricanes - Grahame is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Panthers, reports the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Cam Ward is out indefinitely due to a leg laceration.


The goalies below have not been confirmed by any sources:

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

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

Marc Denis, Tampa Bay Lightning - Denis is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs.

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

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

David Aebischer, Montreal Canadiens
- Aebischer is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Islanders. As we suspected the other day, Jaroslav Halak has cooled down considerably after a hot start and is in danger of being demoted to the AHL. If that were to happen, Aebischer would handle the bulk of starting duties with relief in the form of Michael Leighton.

Ryan Miller, Buffalo Sabres - Miller is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Penguins.

Dominik Hasek, Detroit Red Wings - Hasek is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Predators.

Tomas Vokoun, Nashville Predators - Vokoun is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Red Wings.

Antero Niittymaki, Philadelphia Flyers - Niittymaki is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Stars, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer & Daily News. They did not explicitly state that he will start but coach John Stevens has already gone on record to say that Niittymaki and Martin Biron would split the next two games. Biron played last night in a 4-1 loss to the Coyotes, so by inference that means it will be Niittymaki tonight.

Niklas Backstrom, Minnesota Wild - Backstrom is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Canucks. If and when Manny Fernandez returns, Backstrom will get continue to get the majority of playing time as coach Jacques Lemaire announced that his stellar play over the past few weeks has made him the team's #1 goalie. In fact, in somewhat of a shocker, Lemaire implied that rookie Josh Harding will be the team's #2 goalie for the forseeable future.

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

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

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

Evgeni Nabokov, San Jose Sharks - Nabokov is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks. Vesa Toskala is probably getting close to being completely healthy, but Nabokov has been playing extremely well lately as he's recorded 3 shutouts in his last 4 games.

SPEAKING

''He has a pretty good record against everybody. There aren't many teams he's missing out on.'' - Washington coach Glen Hanlon on Alex Ovechkin, who scored two goals in the Capitals' 4-2 loss to Atlanta on Monday night, giving him 12 goals and 14 assists in 15 career games against the Thrashers.
