  • This Fluto Shinzawa’s projection has Tim Thomas and Ilya Bryzgalov facing each other tonight. 

UPDATED: 10/17/2009 @ 02:58PM:

  • Patrick Lalime will make his first start of the night according to this Sabres Edge entry.  A) This makes sense as Ryan Miller has started every game so far.  B) Typing Lalime’s name is simply painful, just thinking about him gives me Cloutier type nightmares.

UPDATED: 10/17/2009 @ 12:48PM:

  • Craig Anderson is in net for the eighth straight game.  Confirmed here
  • Marc Andre Fleury is expected in net, per the Post-Gazette.
  • Mike Heika projects Alex Auld against Christobal Huet here.  More updates to come if anything changes.

  • Damien Cristodero writes here that Antero Niittymaki will start against Pittsburgh tonight. 
  • Martin Biron is probable tonight against San Jose, per Chris Botta here.  Very likely scenario considering the rotation and Dwayne Roloson’s poor performance last night. 
  • According to this John Glennon post here, Dan Ellis will be in net tonight against Washington.  I’ll keep you updated if there are any changes. 
  • David Pollack comments here that he still does not know who will be in net for the Sharks tonight.

  • Steve Mason is projected here by Tom Reed.  Mathieu Garon will get a start within the next four games. 
  • Jonas Hiller is mentioned here, he is probable for tonight. 
  • This feature article here has Pascal Leclaire facing the Canadiens.  Carey Price is in net per Habs Inside/Out

UPDATED: 10/16/2009 @ 11:42PM:

  • According to Chris Vivlamore of the AJC, Johan Hedberg will be in net tonight.  He states this in a comment in this post here.
  • Semyon Varlamov will make the start in net tonight with Braden Holtby his backup.  Jose Theodore was held out of practice today due to a “sharp pain.”  Click here to read more on the subject.
  • Steve Zipay reports here that Henrik Lundqvist will start tonight here.  Although he claims nothing is official yet, I would call it a safe bet.
  • Through the process of elimination Joey MacDonald will start against the Rangers.  Read all about it here.  The Leafs’ official website also projects him here with James Reimer backing him up.

That’s all I have for now.  More updates to come.  If you have any tips, email them to me at alexander.monaghan@gmail.com.
