  • This quote comes from Randy Hahn:In the broadcast booth in St. Louis. Nabokov starts in goal, Logan Couture up from Worcester plays on a line with McGinn and Staubitz. Vesce down to Worcester. Shelly, Blake and Mitchell not on trip. Expect St. Louis to come out HARD! The owner ripped the players in the press today.

  • Ray Emery confirmed here.  Thank you Kevin Kurz!

UPDATED 11/14/2009 @ 5:09 PM

  • Since there are no news reports on their goalie status, I’m assuming Evgeni Nabokov, Ray Emery and Chris Mason are your remaining starters for tonight.  Of course, I will update if anything changes.

  • The AP implies here that Evgeni Nabokov duels with Niklas Backstrom tonight.

UPDATED: 10/10/2009 @ 9:50 AM

  • Interesting to see if Pete DeBoer goes with Tomas Vokoun as originally planned.  As noted here, Scott Clemmensen is still not back with his team, “needs about a week of practice before he is ready.”  Alexander Salak meanwhile remains Vokoun’s backup.  Vokoun is written about again hereMartin Brodeur as always is expected to start for the Devils.
  • Marc Andre Fleury is projected to start against the Leafs, according to this preview.   Jonas Gustavsson was placed on IR Thursday according to the same article.  Vesa Toskala starts with Joey MacDonald his backup tonight.

  • Tuuka Rask may get his first start tonight, as discussed by Bruins Blog’s Fluto Shinzawa here.  The same is confirmed on the Isles’ site here.  Still no word on the starter for the Isles, will keep you updated.
