Legend for Goalie Starters:

  • Probable = Our best guess based off the surrounding games since no reputable source confirmed starting goaltender.
  • Expected/Likely = A source expects the netminder to start but typically not based off morning skate.
  • Confirmed = The team’s source or beat writer confirms which goalie will start. Certain sources we feel are reliable enough to confirm a day in advance regardless of the time of confirmation.

We encourage speculation in our comments or if you feel we missed a starter please let your voice heard. Also note that we post speculation in our comments section as well. DISCLAIMER: We try to confirm all of our starters to the best of our ability before 7 PM EST, where most goaltending conflicts take place.
