Ryan Miller

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.

Atlanta @ Buffalo - 7:00 pm

Atlanta’s starter: Ondrej Pavelec will get the call for Atlanta tonight. (Source)

Buffalo’s starter: If anyone other than Ryan Miller got the start on Pegula night in Buffalo we’d be stunned. (Source)

Florida @ Ottawa - 7:00 pm

Florida’s starter: Scott Clemmensen gets the start for Florida as they try to stay in the hunt for the playoffs. (Source)

Ottawa’s starter: Craig Anderson gets the call in goal for Ottawa. He’s pretty much the de facto starter from here on out. (Source)

Phoenix @ Tampa Bay - 7:30 pm

Phoenix’s starter: Normally we’d think it’d be time for Jason LaBarbera to get the start since Phoenix played last night in Philly. Sneaky suspicion we’ll see Ilya Bryzgalov get  the call again for Phoenix against the East’s #2 team.

Tampa Bay’s starter: Dwayne Roloson gets the start for Tampa Bay as they look to stop the Coyotes eight game win streak. (Source)

San Jose @ Pittsburgh - 7:30 pm

San Jose’s starter: Antti Niemi will start once again for San Jose. Hey, why not? He’s on fire. (Source)

Pittsburgh’s starter: Marc-Andre Fleury will start for Pittsburgh. (Source)

Edmonton @ Colorado – 9:30 pm

Edmonton’s starter: Is it time to give Devan Dubnyk another shot after Nikolai Khabibulin had a hard time handling the Wild last night? Could be.

Colorado’s starter: Brian Elliott makes his first start with the Avalanche after getting over his work visa issues. (Source)

Los Angeles @ Anaheim - 10:00 pm

Los Angeles’ starter: Jon Quick gets the nod against the crosstown rivals. (Source)

Anaheim’s starter: Curtis McElhinney gets one last crack at showing he can shoulder the load now that Ray Emery is on his way up to Anaheim. (Source)
