Today’s Starting Goalies - December 27th


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

NY Islanders @ NY Rangers

Likely NY Islanders starter: Dwayne Roloson - After going without a win since October, Rolo will attempt to win his fourth game in a row tonight. The question is: will anyone be there to see it? (Source.)

Likely NY Rangers starter: Henrik Lundqvist (Source.)

7:30 pm ET games

Boston @ Florida

Likely Boston starter: Tim Thomas (Source.)

Likely Florida starter: Scott Clemmensen - A rare start for the former backup of Martin Brodeur. (Source.)

Minnesota @ Columbus

Likely Minnesota starter: Jose Theodore (Source.)

Likely Columbus starter: Steve Mason - With Mathieu Garon being a little shaky lately, this is a good chance for Mason to win the starting job back. After all, Columbus wants him to win it back. (Source.)

9:00 pm ET games

Buffalo @ Calgary

Likely Buffalo starter: Ryan Miller (Source.)

Likely Calgary starter: Miikka Kiprusoff (Source.)

Detroit @ Colorado

Likely Detroit starter: Chris Osgood - Looks like Osgood will take another swing at win number 400. Wouldn’t it be fitting if he earned it against the Red Wings’ greatest ‘90s rival? (Source.)

Likely Colorado starter: Peter Budaj (Source.)

10:30 pm ET game

Los Angeles @ San Jose

Likely Los Angeles starter: Jonathan Quick (Source.)

Likely San Jose starter: Antti Niemi (Source.)
