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. Here’s what’s on tap for this afternoon’s starts. We’ll get you tonight’s starting goalies later today. We’ll also update this post when starters are confirmed.

7:00 pm ET games

NY Islanders @ NY Rangers

Likely NY Islanders starter: Dwayne Roloson – Rick DiPietro lost the first half of the Isles’ home-and-home with the Rangers in a high-scoring game so it’s no surprise that they’re going with Rolo tonight. (Source.)

Likely NY Rangers starter: Henrik Lundqvist – The odds-on starter, but no promises. (Source.)

Colorado @ Carolina

Likely Colorado starter: Craig Anderson – It sounds like “Andy” is back from injury … again. (Source.)

Likely Carolina starter: Cam Ward (Source.)

7:30 PM ET game

Columbus @ Buffalo

Likely Columbus starter: Mathieu Garon – The Blue Jackets will turn to their highly effective backup to try to get back to their winning ways. (Source.)

Likely Buffalo starter: Ryan Miller – No big surprise here. (Source.)

8:00 PM ET game

Calgary @ Minnesota

Likely Calgary starter: Henrik Karlsson – It’s not often that the Flames give Miikka Kiprusoff a break, but it sounds like tonight will be one of those nights. (Source.)

Likely Minnesota starter: Niklas Backstrom – Backstrom will try to end the Wild’s three game winning streak tonight. (Source.)

8:30 pm ET game

Vancouver @ Chicago

Likely Vancouver starter: Roberto Luongo (Source.)

Likely Chicago starter: Marty Turco – Corey Crawford won his last three starts. Turco allowed 11 goals in two games. Let’s just say it’s pretty important for Turco to have a good game against the Canucks. (Source.)

10:00 pm ET game

Detroit @ Anaheim

Likely Detroit starter: Jimmy Howard – Chris Osgood will be back in the Red Wings lineup, but he’ll do so as a backup tonight. He might give Howard a breather soon, though. (Source.)

Likely Anaheim starter: Jonas Hiller – As usual there’s no official confirmation for this one, but it’s a fairly educated guess.
