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.
NY Islanders @ Atlanta – 5:00 pm ET
New York’s starting goalie: Rick DiPietro will make his first start since November 3rd when the Isles lost to Carolina 7-2. No pressure for Ricky D as the Isles will only be looking to snap a 12-game losing streak.
Atlanta’s starting goalie: Ondrej Pavelec will start once again for Atlanta and he’s on fire of late having not allowed a goal in the last 81:57 played dating back to the second period on Wednesday against Florida. “Pavelectric” indeed.
Calgary @ Detroit – 5:00 pm ET

Edmonton @ Anaheim – 8:00 pm ET
Edmonton’s likely starter: No confirmation here butDevan Dubnyk figures to get the call for the Oilers. Martin Gerber is his backup if Dubnyk doesn’t start.
Anaheim’s likely starter: No confirmation here as of yet, but expect Jonas Hiller to get the call in goal. Playing a weaker Edmonton team might be a good reason to give Curtis McElhinney a shot, however.
Phoenix @ Vancouver – 9:00 pm ET
Phoenix’s starting goalie: Ilya Bryzgalov gets the start as you’d expect against a tough Western Conference foe. (Source)
Vancouver’s starting goalie: Roberto Luongo gets the call again after being chased from last night’s game in the second period after allowing four goals against Chicago. (Source)
