Fantasy Watch: Goalie Starts

Nov 19th-25th

Anaheim Ducks (3) – Bryzgalov's role has diminished recently as he only has two starts in November.

Atlanta Thrashers (4) – Pavelec has been a great fill in for Lehtonen and should continue to receive starts this week.

Boston Bruins (3) – Fernandez is still out with a knee injury making Thomas the undisputed starter.

Buffalo Sabres (3) – Miller struggles can be blamed on Buffalo's lackluster offense.

Carolina Hurricanes (3) – Ward has been great all year but may yield a start to Grahame with back-to-back games this week.

Calgary Flames (4) – Kiprusoff has started all 18 games this year, but this may be the week that
Calgary finally gives him a rest due to a busy schedule.

Chicago Blackhawks (3) – Look for Khabibulin to receive all three starts this week.

Columbus Blue Jackets (3) – Leclaire has struggled recently but is still the #1 goaltender in Columbus.

Colorado Avalanche (3) – Budaj is still the #1 guy, but Theodore's recent performances make it hard to keep him on the bench.

Dallas Stars (4) – The Stars don't like to overuse Turco, so with four games on the schedule expect to see backup Smith at least once.

Detroit Red Wings (3) – With back-to-back games, expect to see Osgood get the call once this week.

Edmonton Oilers (3) – Garon has outperformed Roloson this season and should see more starts.
Florida Panthers (3) – Vokoun should receive all three starts this week.

Los Angeles Kings (4) – LaBarbera has emerged as the starter in LA but it won't stay that way if he continues to struggle.

Minnesota Wild (3) – With Backstrom hurting, Harding will become the #1 guy.

Montreal Canadiens (4) – Price should see some action due to Montreal's busy schedule.

Nashville Predators (3) – Mason has turned it around recently winning three of his last four games.

New Jersey Devils (3) – Brodeur should receive all three starts this week.

New York Islanders (4) – Dubielewicz may see some action with back-to-back games this week.
New York Rangers (4) – Lundqvist has been the backbone to the Rangers team and should be starting all four games this week.

Ottawa Senators (4) – Gerber is currently riding an eight game win streak.

Philadelphia Flyers (3) – Biron should see action in all three games this week.

Phoenix Coyotes (3) – Auld and Tellqvist are still splitting time.

Pittsburgh Penguins (3) – Expect to see Fleury in goal for all three games this week.

San Jose Sharks (1) – Expect Nabokov to get San Jose's lone start this week.

St. Louis Blues (3) - Legace should get all three starts this week

Tampa Bay Lightining (4) – Holmqvist may yield a start to Denis with four games this week.

Toronto Maple Leafs (3) – After missing a game due to the flu Toskala should be ready to go.

Vancouver Canucks (4) – The Canucks rarely give Luongo a rest, so expect to see him in all four games this week.

Washington Capitals (4) – Kolzig rarely works back-to-back games, so expect to see Johnson in for one of them.
