Today’s Starting Goalies - December 17th


James O’Brien

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.

7:00 pm ET game

Nashville @ New Jersey

Likely Nashville starter: Anders Lindback - It sounds like Pekka Rinne might be on his way back from a knee injury, but Lindback is expected to start at least the first of back-to-back games. (Source.)

Likely New Jersey starter: Martin Brodeur (Source.)

7:30 pm ET game

Buffalo @ Florida

Likely Buffalo starter: Ryan Miller (Source.)

Likely Florida starter: Tomas Vokoun (Source.)

8:30 pm ET game

Detroit @ Chicago

Likely Detroit starter: Jimmy Howard - The plan is to start Howard tonight in Chicago and Chris Osgood when the team goes back to Detroit, so Ozzie can go for his 400th career win at home. (Source.)

Likely Chicago starter: Corey Crawford (Source.)

9:00 pm ET game

Ottawa @ Colorado

Likely Ottawa starter: Pascal Leclaire - He won in his return from injury in his last start, but will face a high-scoring Avalanche team tonight. If he plays well, he might be on to something. (Source.)

Likely Colorado starter: Craig Anderson (Source.)
