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.

7:30 pm ET games

Atlanta @ Ottawa

Likely Atlanta starter: Ondrej Pavelec – After a rare Chris Mason start, back to the net for Pavs. (Source.)

Likely Ottawa starter: Brian Elliott – With yet another Pascal Leclaire injury, Elliott gets another chance to solidify his place as the Senators’ no. 1 goalie. (Source.)

Los Angeles @ Detroit

Likely Los Angeles starter: Jonathan Quick (Source.)

Likely Detroit starter: Jimmy Howard (Source.)

8:00 PM ET game

NY Islanders @ Nashville

Likely NY Islanders starter: Dwayne Roloson - It’s been almost two months since Rolo won an NHL game. That makes it hard to root against the tough-luck netminder. (Source.)

Likely Nashville starter: Anders Lindback – With Pekka Rinne injured for an indefinite amount of time, expect a lot of “Anders the Giant.” (Source.)

9:00 pm ET games

Chicago @ Colorado

Likely Chicago starter: Marty Turco – Can he finally begin to get his fledgling game together, as Corey Crawford clearly usurped him as the starter right now? (Source.)

Likely Colorado starter: Craig Anderson (Source.)

Columbus @ Calgary

Likely Columbus starter: Steve Mason (Source.)

Likely Calgary starter: Miikka Kiprusoff – My educated guess on who gets the start based on 70+ GP per year/common sense.

10:30 pm ET game

Dallas @ San Jose

Likely Dallas starter: Andrew Raycroft – The gravy train got derailed a bit on Saturday when Raycroft lost to the Coyotes, but hopefully he can get in back together while Kari Lehtonen heals up. (Source.)

Likely San Jose starter: Antti Niemi – Again, it seems like Niemi is getting the upper hand on the Sharks goaltending job lately. (Source.)
