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

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

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 😛

UPDATED: 10/16/2009 @ 12:46PM:

  • Hey there guys, I’m still weeding through the sources for expected starters.  Your likely starters for tonight are: Tim Thomas, Ryan Miller, Nikolai Khabibulin, Ray Emery, Niklas Backstrom, Roberto Luongo and Miikka Kiprusoff.  No sources have confirmed them yet, but that usually means that the starter will be in net.  More to come later!
  • Marty Turco again confirmed here

UPDATED: 10/15/2009 @ 08:46PM:

  • Jacques Martin confirmed that Martin Brodeur will be in net tonight.  Yann Danis should make his Devils debut on Saturday against Carolina.  Meanwhile, Johan Hedberg will make his debut either tonight or at some other point this weekend.  Coach John Anderson was non-commital whether it would be Ondrej Pavelec or Hedberg.  Read the rest of the story here, including info on Kari Lehtonen‘s injury.
  • Chris Botta has Dwayne Roloson in his projected lineup here.
  • Mike Heika reports here that Marc Crawford intends to play Marty Turco tonight, with Alex Auld starting Saturday
  • Scott Clemmensen makes the start tonight according to the Miami Herald.
