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.

C = CONFIRMATION: All confirmations are listed below or click here (http://goaliestatus.com/)

Must Start
Backstrom vs CHI: 5-3-1, 1.43gaa, .948sv% in the month of February. That includes a game where he let in 3 goals on 13 shots, which makes his other starts even more impressive.

Good Start
Crawford @MIN: Crawford has won 4 in a row, but has let in 3 or more in 3 of his last 5. Considering They re-signed seabrook for a monster deal and only have about 14 million for 14 players, if they don't move Campbell's contract Crawford may get booted just like Niemi. Is Salak next?
Quick vs DET: Quick has won 9 of his last 11, but allowed 3 goals in 3 of his last 4 starts. The last time they played he shut them out and made 51 saves, but a repeat seems crazy.

Toss Up
Howard @LAK: After 4 wins in a row with solid numbers, Howard has let in 7 goals in his last 2. He's 2-3 against the Kings with mediocre numbers.
