Holtby allowed three goals on 20 shots in a loss to the Oilers on Wednesday. He has gone 2-1-1 with a 2.13 GAA and .917 SV% in his first four starts of the season. Tonight he takes on a Flames team who are 5-3-1 to start the season.
Smith allowed two goals on 29 shots in the Coyotes 2-0 loss to the Wild on Thursday. It was a much improved game compared to his first three starts of the season. Hopefully it is a sign of things to come for Smith owners and Coyotes fans alike. He has a great matchup tonight against the Panthers 29th ranked offence (1.50 G/PG)
Neuvirth surrendered three goals on 33 shots in a loss to the Ducks on Wednesday. It was a better outing than his first start against the Ducks and that earned him another start tonight against an equally as tough Sharks squad. Sabres goalies are nearly impossible to trust given how much Buffalo has struggled in October.
Fleury allowed four goals on 32 shots in a loss to the Flyers on Wednesday. After sitting on Thursday in Detroit, Fleury will be back between the pipes tonight in Nashville. The Predators have yet to lose in regulation this season, but Fleury has had a decent start to the year and should not be left on your bench.
Moss (upper-body) not expected to play on Saturday.
Moss is not on the ice for the Coyotes morning skate after suffering an upper-body injury on Thursday. He played 9:50 before leaving the game and not returning. With Moss out, Justin Hodgman is expected to make his NHL debut. Consider Moss day-to-day.
The Coyotes have recalled Justin Hodgman from Portland (AHL).
Hodgman, 26, will likely make his NHL debut on Saturday. David Moss was not on the ice for the morning skate, suggesting he will be out, which means Hodgman will slide in as a centre and move Sam Gagner to the wing. He has no points in three games with Portland.
Raanta allowed three goals on 27 shots in a 3-2 loss to the Predators on Thursday. James Neal had Raanta's number and scored all three goals to push Nashville past the Hawks. He will be back in the cage for a third straight game tonight in St. Louis.
Nabokov stopped 21 of 22 shots in a win over the Flames on Tuesday. He has stopped 44 of 47 shots (.936 SV%) in his two starts this season. With two back-to-backs in the same week, this will likely be the only time he will start two games in a week. He draws a tough matchup vs. the Wild.
