Here are the expected starters for tonight:

UPDATED 10/30/2009 @ 7:35 PM:

  • In my haste today, I forgot to mention Niklas Backstrom is the starter for Minnesota tonight. Somehow my excerpt was deleted or not posted, thanks Steve (Rangersfan527@yahoo.com) for the tip.  Josh Harding is listed day-to-day here, leaving the only option rookie Anton Khudobin who Michael Russo mentions in the post will probably backup Backstrom his entire stay.

UPDATED 10/30/2009 @ 3:15 PM:

  • Heika has Tomas Vokoun starting for Florida.  Full predictions for tonight here.

UPDATED 10/30/2009 @ 2:45 PM:

UPDATED 10/30/2009 @ 1:30 PM:

  • Sabres.com writes on Ryan Miller‘s hot streak both this year and against the Leafs here.  He is a safe bet for tonight.

  • Brent Johnson to face Blue Jackets tonight.  Full preview from Seth Rorabaugh of Empty Netters.
