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/)

Toss Up
Vokoun @NYI: Vokoun hasn't been winning much lately, and more often than not he's letting in 3 or more goals. However, his sv% is his saving grace. That, and he's absolutely dominant against the Islanders, going 14-4-1 with a 1.86gaa and .940sv%
Montoya vs FLA: If Poulin could crack Toss Up and better, Montoya can until proven otherwise. He got his first career shutout last game and used to be a very highly touted prospect.
*Neuvirth @PIT: Varlamov won yesterday, so does he start a B2B? I'm not sure when the last time this happened was when both goalies were healthy. Pittsburgh played yesterday as well, so they might just both roster tired goalies. Varly would be Good.
Johnson vs WSH: After his hot run to start the season Johnson has still been serviceable, but has had a few 5+ goal melt downs along the way. He's 2-3-1 in his last 6, allowing 4 goals in 4 great starts and 11 goals in 2 awful ones.

Weak Start
Conklin vs CHI: After his shutout, Conklin let in 3 goals on 5 shots in 17 minutes, and after he was pulled Bishop stopped all shots he faced for a 9-3 victory. Another relatively solid prospect, Bishop could see a start or two before Halak returns.

Don't Start
Turco @STL: Crawford played and won early yesterday, and there's a good chance he goes again. However, he's 1-0-1 against St.Louis allowing 10 goals in 2 whole games. Turco has let in 3 or more in 11 of 14.
