Fantasy Watch: Goalie Starts

Jan 7th-13th

Anaheim Ducks (3) – Look for Giguere to start all three games this week.

Atlanta Thrashers (3) – Hedberg gave Lehtonen a much needed rest this past week, so expect Lehtonen to receive a heavy workload this upcoming week.

Boston Bruins (3) – Thomas should receive all three starts this week.

Buffalo Sabres (3) – Miller has only yielded four starts to Thibault this season, so it should be no surprise to see Miller starting all three games this week.

Carolina Hurricanes (3) – If Ward's struggles continue, expect to see more of backup John Grahame.

Calgary Flames (3) – Kiprusoff has been a workhorse all year and will most likely be in net for all three games.

Chicago Blackhawks (4) – Lalime played horrible in his last appearance for the Blackhawks, allowing five goals on 17 shots. Without a reliable backup, expect Khabibulin to be busy this week with four starts.

Columbus Blue Jackets (3) – Look for Norrena to steal a start from Leclaire this week.

Colorado Avalanche (4) – Budaj has regained his #1 status, but with four games on the schedule, expect Theodore to start at least one game.

Dallas Stars (4) – With four games expect Smith to make one start.

Detroit Red Wings (3) – Osgood and Hasek have both been phenomenal lately and should continue to split starts.

Edmonton Oilers (3) – Garon hasn't played well enough to earn Edmonton's starting job, so look for Roloson to appear in one game.

Florida Panthers (4) – Even with a busy schedule, expect to see Vokoun start all four games.

Los Angeles Kings (3) – LaBarbera and Sebastian-Aubin will both see action for this upcoming week.

Minnesota Wild (4) – Harding should make one start this week due to four games on the schedule.

Montreal Canadiens (3) – Look for Huet to start all three games this week.

Nashville Predators (4) – Ellis has started Nashville's last two games, and should get another start this upcoming week.

New Jersey Devils (3) – Rarely ever getting a break, Brodeur should receive all three starts this week.

New York Islanders (4) – With DiPietro day-to-day, Dubielewicz becomes New York's #1 guy.

New York Rangers (3) – Look for Lundqvist to start all three games this week.

Ottawa Senators (3) – Gerber has been Ottawa's #1 guy this year, but expect Emery to continue to receive at least one start per week.

Philadelphia Flyers (4) – Nittymaki recently gave Biron a rest, so look for Biron to start all four games this week.

Phoenix Coyotes (4) – With four games on the schedule, Tellqvist will be called upon this week.

Pittsburgh Penguins (3) – Conklin has been on fire winning his last six starts and will continue to start until he falters.

San Jose Sharks (3) – Nabokov has started every game for San Jose this year.

St. Louis Blues (4) – With Legace currently day-to-day, Toivonen becomes St. Louis' top goaltender

Tampa Bay Lightining (3) – Ramo has struggled in his first stint in the NHL, but Tampa continues to stick by him.

Toronto Maple Leafs (3) – With Toskala still sidelined, Clemmensen and Raycroft will continue to split starts.

Vancouver Canucks (3) – Luongo has won three of his last four starts and should start all three
games this week.

Washington Capitals (2) – Look for Kolzig to start both of Washington's games this week.
