Fleury starting in net. Vokoun starts Sun at NYR
Fleury and Vokoun will split the weekend games for the Pens.
Anderson to start Saturday vs Winnipeg.
In Anderson's 12 career starts against Winnipeg he is 8-2-2 with a 2.55 GAA and .931 SV%.
.@680CJOB Postma-Clitsome. Pavelec in goal. Bogosian and Miettinen on #NHLJets IR. 3/3
Pavelec could be in for a tough season due to the travel but he should be fresh against the Sens. There are better options out there though with 25 other goalies playing.
Corey Crawford will start in the team's season opener against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday
The Blackhawks should be a good team this season, but the inconsistent play from Crawford last season leaves fantasy owners worried about whether or not he is a good fantasy option. I like Crawford more as a #2 fantasy goalie than a #1 but he also has a lot of upside given the skill of the team he plays on.
Quick and Crawford lead their teams to the Staples Center ice at 11:29
The defending champs raise the banner at home. Emotions should be high, Quick is a very safe start.
#Caps Oates confirms that Braden Holtby will start opening night vs #TBLightning
Holtby has 1 career game in which he didn't start. However he came in and didn't allow a goal. 21 saves on 21 shots. Career 1-0-0 against the Lightning.
#Isles Capuano says Nabokov will start the opener tonight.
The 37 year old goalie usually posts a worthwhile GAA and SV% but he won't get you very many Wins playing on Long Island. He is towards the bottom of the tier 2 fantasy goalies.
Cory Schneider will start in net tonight.
Schneider is expected to be the #1 goalie in Vancouver this season with Luongo either getting traded or backing him up. Schneider needs to get off to a fast start though because Luongo will be breathing down his neck. Start Schneider tonight with confidence.
Jaroslav Halak starts tomorrow #stlblues
In Halak's 7 career starts against the Red Wings he has a 2-4-1 record with a 4.16 GAA and .876 SV%.
Michel Therrien confirmed that Carey Price will play in Saturday night's game.
Price has 19 career GP against the Maple Leafs. He holds a 10-8-1 record with a 2.38 GAA, 926 SV% and 3 shutouts.
Henrik Lundqvist will start Saturday.
In Lundqvist's 27 career games against the Bruins he is 19-6-2 with a 1.53 GAA, .947 SV% and 6 shutouts. Start him with confidence.
Rask to start for Bruins against the Rangers.
Rask is a great talent and is finally getting his shot as an NHL starter. Boston is one of the NHL's best teams making Rask one of the top fantasy goalie options.
Cam Ward will start opener.
Ward is 13-9-2 with a 2.88 GAA and a .904 SV% in his career against the Panthers.
Theodore to start for the Panthers.
Theodore isn't a great fantasy option. He might be a worthwhile backup if the Panthers get off to a hot start.
Babcock said, “Howie (Jimmy Howard) is going to start, and if he plays good he's going to start again, and if if he plays good he's going to start again.''
Depending on his play, Howard could start each of the Red Wings first 3 games, including a back-to-back.
Brodeur will start vs. Islanders tomorrow night
Brodeur enters his final season, and by making the Finals last year still has people believing he has what it takes. Brodeur is probably closer to a #2 goalie option this season than he is to a #1. An alright option but I would look elsewhere.
Richards says Bobrovsky in for #CBJ against the #Preds tonight
Bobrovsky earns the opening night start over Steve Mason
Pekka Rinne between the pipes, no surprise there.
Rinne struggled in the KHL during the lockout but fantasy owners shouldn't worry. You know what you're getting with Rinne, a lot of games played, consistent wins and numbers close what he had last year (2.39 GAA and .923 SV%)
Yes RT @FH911: @azc_mclellan Is Smith confirmed to start based on your observations, Sarah?
Smith was one of the top options in net last season and should be a safe start against the Stars.
No surprise Anders Lindback is first goalie off ice for #tblightning. He will face #Caps tonight.
Lindback has the luxury of playing on one of the NHL's highest scoring teams. He has the potential to be a #1 fantasy goalie if everything goes right. Keep an eye on him, he could be a great pickup.
Kari Lehtonen in goal Saturday.
Lehtonen is 5-2-4 in his career against the Coyotes, to go along with a 2.18 GAA and .928 SV%.
Varlamov is set to be in the Avs' net Saturday night when they open their 48-game season on the road against the Minnesota Wild.
In his 4 career start against the Wild, Varlamov has a 4-0-0 record with a 1.00 GAA, a .962 SV% and 1 shutout.
Niklas Backstrom (20-5-2 all-time vs. Colorado) vs. Semyon Varlamov (4-0 against the Wild) on Saturday.
Backstrom is expected to split his fair share with Harding.
Bryzgalov, who is expected to be in goal today when the Flyers open the season at home against Pittsburgh and again for Sunday’s game in Buffalo.
Bryzgalov struggled at times last season and then again during the lockout in the KHL. He comes in this season with slightly lower expectations which may help him out. The Flyers should be a good team, and if Bryz can put it all together like he did in Phoenix he could be one of fantasy's top goalies.
