Howard leads the Red Wings onto the ice for warmups.

Howard stopped nine of 10 shots after replacing Jonathan Bernier in the Red Wings loss in Washington on Tuesday. Howard has been solid at Little Caesars Arena so far this season, going 7-3-3 with a 2.57 GAA and .927 SV% in 14 games. He lost his first start against the Senators but played very well and should be a solid option tonight.

Lundqvist leads the Rangers onto the ice for warmups.

Lundqvist allowed five goals on 35 shots in the Rangers loss in Tampa Bay on Monday. Lundqvist has now lost three of his last four starts while allowing a combined 15 goals on 142 shots (.894 SV%). The team in front of him will get a little healthier tonight and he actually draws a nice matchup with the No.29 ranked offence in town.

Brossoit will start Friday in Chicago.

Brossoit allowed three goals on 35 shots in the Jets win over the Blackhawks on Tuesday. Brossoit has registered three straight wins despite allowing a combined 10 goals on 101 shots (.901 SV%). Overall, his 2.27 GAA and .932 SV% is as impressive as it gets in the NHL right now and he has a nice matchup in Chicago but comes with some risk as the Jets enter on a back-to-back.

Darling will start Friday vs. the Capitals.

Darling will make his first NHL start since November 24th. After going to the AHL, Darling was quickly recalled because of an injury to Curtis McElhinney. Darling has struggled to a 3.14 GAA and .892 SV% in seven games this season and should be left on the waiver wire until he can prove he is a capable NHL netminder again.

Hill will start Friday in New York.

Hill allowed four goals on 32 shots in the Coyotes loss to the Sharks last Saturday. Hill has had a great run but has lost two in a row while giving up a combined seven goals on 60 shots (.883 SV%). With Darcy Kuemper starting last, Hill will start for the first time in just under a week. He has a solid matchup in New York but is a risky option because of the team in front of him.

Jones is expected to make his NHL debut on Friday.

Jones was recalled from Bakersfield (AHL) after Oscar Klefbom and Kris Russell was injured. Jones sat as a healthy scratch last night but is expected to replace Chris Wideman on Friday. Jones is Seth Jones’ brother but doesn’t have the exact same skillset. Jones is a physical defenseman with a little offensive upside, picking up 12 points (2G / 10A) in 21 games with the Condors this season.
