7:00 pm ET games

Pittsburgh @ Toronto

Likely Pittsburgh starter: Marc-Andre Fleury (Source.)

Likely Toronto starter: James Reimer – It sounds like Reimer will be the go-to goalie as the Maple Leafs attempt their playoff push. (Source.)

Carolina @ Montreal

Likely Carolina starter: Cam Ward (Source.)

Likely Montreal starter: Alex Auld – Carey Price is a game-time decision, so it seems reasonable to think that Auld might get the nod.

Washington @ NY Islanders

Likely Washington starter: Michal NeuvirthSounds like Semyon Varlamov is dealing with an injury, so Neuvirth it is. (Source.)

Likely Islanders starter: Al Montoya (Source.)

Philadelphia @ Ottawa
