Here are the expected starters for tonight:

UPDATED 11/15/2009 @ 5:17 PM

  • Not much reporting going on today.  No update from Working the Corners with David Pollack or even a game-day update from Randy Hahn on Facebook, leaving me SOL with Shark sources.  I’m assuming Evgeni Nabokov starts for the Sharks, which makes sense considering Todd McClellan has already started Nabokov on back-to-back starts this season AND Thomas Greiss just started on 11/10/2009.

UPDATED 11/15/2009 @ 1:22 PM

UPDATED 11/15/2009 @ 1:11 PM

  • I’m assuming Niklas Backstrom will start as there is no word otherwise.  Josh Harding also made the last start for the Wild, so I wouldn’t expect him to sit tonight.

Here are the expected starters for tonight:

UPDATED 11/11/2009 @ 1:28 PM:

  • Dan Tencer writes Nikolai Khabibulin will return to the Oilers lineup.
  • Martin Brodeur projects for the Devils. big suprise there.
  • On the same note, Jonas Hiller likely will start against the Devils.  The Ducks have back-to-back games coming up this weekend one of which Jean-Sebastien Giguere should start.  At least that is my interpretation to this feature.

UPDATED 11/11/2009 @ 1:13 PM:

  • Portzline also projects Steve Mason in his lines.
