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/)

Good Start
Fleury @WSH: This match up gets a whole lot less interesting when Crosby isn't playing, and borderline boring without Malkin. This won't even be a good preview of if they face each other in the playoffs.
Varlamov vs PIT: Varlamov is continuing his hot January play into February, but his record is still just 3-3-3 since the new year. 1.93gaa and .939~sv% certainly make owners happy though.
C Brodeur @MTL: I'm scared to jump the gun, but really he'll be back to must start in a few games if he keeps this play up. We all know he's dominant against Montreal, going 39-16 in his career with a 1.75gaa, .933sv%, and 9 shutouts. Earlier this year had a 29 save shutout.
C Price vs NJD: I still want to put him in Toss Up, but the shutout swayed me. Even though Brodeur and the Devils play great against the Habs, Price has some pretty solid stats of his own.

Toss Up
C Ellis vs STL: Now that Ellis has been "given" the back up role, it seems like his play has improved. No big workload, not much pressure in games, this is where Ellis is effective. In his last 2 games he has barely over a 1gaa, and a .936sv%.

Weak Start
Conklin @TBL: He might have gotten a win last night, but it was against Edmonton. He's let in 13 goals in his last 3.
