Here are the expected starters for tonight:

- According to this Rich Hammond notebook entry, Erik Ersberg will make his 2009 debut tonight.
- Rob Rossi’s feature article in the Pittsburgh Tribune Review discusses the success of both Marc Andre Fleury and Cam Ward. If you scroll to the bottom he mentions the two in net tonight. Read the whole story here. Penguins.nhl.com also projects Fleury here.
- John Glennon wrote three days ago here that Dan Ellis would start against Dallas. I would say that is still a safe bet considering Pikka Rinne‘s performance.
