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.

Likely Boston starter: Tuukka Rask (Source.)

Philadelphia @ New Jersey

Likely Philadelphia starter: Brian Boucher (Source.)

Likely New Jersey starter: Johan Hedberg – It seems like Marty Brodeur is in full-scale sad panda mode now, so expect Hedberg to get his fair share of starts. (Source.)

Likely St. Louis starter: Jaroslav Halak (Source.)

Likely Toronto starter: Jonas Gustavsson (Source.)

7:30 pm ET game
