Disclaimer: All of the following are based on my (hopefully) unbiased opinion and are in no way statistical fact. Factors going into my decisions include goalie skill, match up, career stats vs, and recent trends. How many goalies start reflects how much I write about them, usually. If you disagree about anything feel free to voice your opinion!

C = CONFIRMATION: All confirmations are listed below or click here (http://goaliestatus.com/)
* = Tandem goalie: Even if confirmed check as late as possible!

Must Start
Lundqvist vs NJD: Lundy has struggled a bit lately, but he never has against the Devils. 21-7-5, 1.81gaa, .938sv%, 5SO. If there was a higher category than must start, this would be in it.

Good Start
C Reimer vs CAR: It's tough putting a Toronto goalie in good start, but it's hard to keep Reimer out. In 7 starts, he's gone below .932sv% just 1 time. That's not a typo.
C Brodeur @NYR: The resurgence of Brodeur is saving tons of poolies who held onto him through his incredibly bad start. Ever since taking a few starts off, he's gone 6-2, and been above .917sv% in all of his wins.
C Kiprusoff @ATL: Where did Kipper come from? Ever since being called out he's been on fire, so I guess all he needed was to prove somebody wrong. He's on a 4 game win streak, allowing only 7 goals in that span.
C Bobrovsky vs NSH

Toss Up
C Pavelec vs CGY: It's so hard to get a read on Pavelec lately, Enstrom being out probably doesn't help either. 2 of his last 3 games have sucked, but 4 of his last 6 have been as good as ever.
C Theodore @COL: Theodore is back apparently, but he hasn't had much luck facing his former team. He allowed 8 goals in his last 2 games, and is just 2-5-0 against the Avs.
C Raycroft @BOS: In his last start he let in 7 goals on 19 shots. Before that, he had a shutout.
C Anderson vs MIN: Anderson got the loss after replacing Budaj last game, but he played pretty well. In his last 2 starts he allowed 9 goals, but because of his solid play at the beginning of the month he did alright.
C Lindback @PHI
C Rask vs DAL: He'd be higher, but with his W/L ratio it seems the team isn't trying as hard for him.

Weak Start
Ward @TOR: I was under the impression Ward was injured, but since he played the all-star game anyways I'm either wrong or it can't be serious. 6-5-2 in his last 13 with abysmal stats, what's up?

Pick one or two.

Brodeur @ NYR
Lundqvist vs NJD

Leaning towards Lundqvist and Brodeur.

Dunno who this guy is (Philly Sports Daily?), but he's saying Bob tonight.

(Surprised by this, since I thought Boosh would go.)

:yes:

Brodeur has some pretty ridiculous stats against NYR too, hopefully it's a low scoring game.

Anders Lindback will get the start in goal for Nashville on Thursday. Pekka Rinne owners take note that he will not start tonight

ugh, sorry about that confirmation. I'll only trust Nashville sources I guess.

Thanks for the positive review of Reimer. I was originally gonna pick up Lindback, but I'm glad I didn't and ended up with a shutout.
