Fleury was the first goalie off of the ice for the Penguins.
Fleury gave up four goals on 36 shots in the Penguins 4-0 loss to the Capitals on Wednesday. Fleury has lost four consecutive starts while posting an ugly 4.31 GAA and .867 SV%. Tonight he will make his fourth start of the season against the Devils—he is 2-1-0 with a 2.01 GAA and .920 SV% in the first three meetings.
Schneider will be in goal again on Friday.
Schneider allowed one goal on 30 shots in the Devils 2-1 shootout win over the Maple Leafs on Wednesday. Schneider has gone 5-1-0 with a 1.88 GAA and .937 SV% in seven starts in January. It has been a strong month, but he has a tough matchup with the Penguins in town—Schneider is 1-2-0 with a 2.64 GAA and .905 SV% vs. Pittsburgh this season.
Allen will start on Friday in Carolina.
Allen allowed two goals on 15 shots in the Blues win over the Oilers on January 13th. Tonight will mark only his second start of the month, but things should start to pick up for him again. He comes into tonight at 13-5-2 with a 2.65 GAA and .900 SV% on the season. The Blues are red-hot, so Allen is a great start against the NHL’s 29th ranked offence.
Khudobin will start again on Friday.
Khudobin stopped 28 of 30 shots in the Hurricanes 4-2 win over the Lightning on Tuesday. Khudobin has grabbed the number-1 job and run with it. He has won six consecutive starts with a 1.44 GAA and .946 SV%. Despite his recent run, he draws a terrible matchup against a Blues team who are 7-0-1 in their last eight.
Varlamov will make his 14th start in the past 15 games.
Varlamov gave up four goals on 39 shots in Colorado’s loss in Nashville on Tuesday. He will get another crack at the Predators, this time in Colorado. Varlamov has gone 8-4-1 with a 2.27 GAA and .931 SV% at the Pepsi Center this season. Varly has gone 7-4-2 in his previous 13 starts.

Miller allowed three goals on 23 shots in the Canucks loss to the Ducks on Tuesday. Miller has gone 3-2-0 with a 1.42 GAA, .946 SV% and two shutouts in his last five starts. Tonight he will make his sixth consecutive start and it will come vs. the team he spent 11 seasons with. It will be a special night for Miller and it is a great matchup.
Crawford starts in goal vs. Anaheim.
Crawford surrendered four goals on 27 shots in the Blackhawks 4-3 loss to the Kings on Wednesday. He has now dropped three of his last four while posting a 3.49 GAA and .891 SV%. It has been a rough stretch for Crawford and it won’t get any easier when he takes on a Ducks team who are 8-2-0 in January.
Andersen is expected to start Friday vs. Chicago.
Andersen stopped all eight shots that he faced after replacing Ilya Bryzgalov in last night’s loss to the Sharks. Starting Bryz yesterday leaves Andersen to take on the Hawks tonight. He is riding a seven-game winning streak, having posted a 1.97 GAA and .931 SV% over that span.
