Whether you’re interested for fantasy hockey reasons or just want to know which goalie your team is playing in a given day, we thought it might be helpful to share our best guesses (based on various previews from newspapers and Web sites plus our own instincts) on who might start each day.

7:00 PM ET game

Philadelphia @ Columbus

Likely Philadelphia starter: Brian Boucher - He’s playing well right now, so the Flyers are hoping to capitalize on his upward trend. (Source: Tim Panaccio.)

Likely Columbus starter: Mathieu Garon – Steve Mason faced a lot of shots so far and therefore has been up-and-down this season, but don’t expect Garon to get many starts unless he pulls a Brent Johnson and wins almost every game. (Source: Columbus Dispatch.)

7:30 PM ET game

Phoenix @ Montreal

Likely Phoenix starter: Ilya Bryzgalov (Source: Phoenix Coyotes Web site.)

Likely Montreal starter: Carey Price – No surprise with either the Coyotes or Habs starter choices tonight … well, unless one of the teams pull the rug out from underneath us, of course. This would be Price’s eighth consecutive start, though. (Source: Habs Inside Out.)

8:00 PM ET game

Los Angeles @ Minnesota

Likely Los Angeles starter: Jonathan Quick – He’s on fire to start the season, putting at least a temporary hold on the Jonathan Bernier goaltending mutiny talk. (Source: Rich Hammond.)

Likely Minnesota starter: Niklas Backstrom (Source: Minnesota Wild Twitter page.)
