Here are the expected starters for tonight:

UPDATED 11/19/2009 @ 10:00 PM

  • Carey Price makes another start per Pat Hickey of Habs Inside/Out.  Price is 5-8-0 on the season with a 2.98 GAA and .906 SV%.
  • Scott Clemmensen starts against the Red Wings.  George Richard’s On Frozen Pond has the scoop.  The Florida backup is 2-1-0 with a 5.14 GAA and .838 SV% in 4 games.
  • Chris Osgood expected to start for the Wings writes Mlive.com’s Ansar Khan.  Ozzy is 6-3-2 with a 2.77 GAA and .902 SV% in 12 games.
  • The Scott Gordon rotation dictates Dwayne Roloson starting tonight.  Chris Botta’s Islanders Point Blank lists the expected lines for the Isles.
  • Flyers coach John Stevens announced Brian Boucher will make his second straight start, says Kevin Kurz’s On the Fly.  The backup is 1-1-0 with a 3.00 GAA and .910 SV% in two starts.

  • Martin Biron NOT Dwayne Roloson starts tonight, confirmed here and here.

UPDATED 11/20/2009 @ 1:53 PM

  • The Province’s Ben Kuzma implies tonight will be Roberto Luongo vs. Craig Anderson.  Makes sense as not only is it a divisional game but a rivalry so both teams will need their number one.  Anderson is 12-5-3 with a 2.40 GAA, .927 SV% and 2 shutouts in 20 games.  By contrast, Luongo is 7-7-0 with a 2.69 GAA and .906 SV% with 1 shutout in 15 games.

UPDATED 11/20/2009 @ 2:22 PM

  • Ryan Miller should face Tim Thomas according to this game previewThomas is still questionable for tonight, it should be a gametime decision.

UPDATED 11/20/2009 @ 2:54 PM

  • The Star Tribune Michael Russo confirmed Niklas Backstrom as the Wild starter, via Direct Message.

UPDATED 11/06/2009 @ 7:27 PM:

  • Disregard last post, Niemi in net.  Confirmed here.

UPDATED 11/06/2009 @ 6:46 PM:

  • Still no announcement over the Chicago starter, I will go with Huet since Niemi starting would actually be news.

UPDATED 11/06/2009 @ 4:20 PM:

  • Not too much from my sources today but Cam Ward and Craig Anderson are expected for their teams respectively.
  • Still awaiting word over the Chicago starter, it will definitely be either Antii Niemi or Christobal Huet 😛
