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. We’ll have the rest of today’s starters later on this afternoon.

Atlanta @ Carolina - 1:30 p.m.

Atlanta’s starter: Ondrej Pavelec will start for the Thrashers and they could use a big start from him to get things back to normal in Atlanta. (Source)

Carolina’s starter: Justin Peters gets the surprise call today as Cam Ward is still bothered by a nagging lower body injury. (Source)
