Starting Goalies in the NHL tonight Wednesday, March 7

Below are the reported starters for Wednesday night:

(Bold is my predicted winner, Italic is an uncertain starter)
Kings - Mathieu Garon vs Blue Jackets - Frederik Norrena
Avalanche - Jose Theodore Peter Budaj vs Sabres - Ryan Miller
Lightning - Marc Denis vs Oilers - Dwayne Roloson
Coyotes - Curtis Joseph Mikael Tellqvist vs Ducks - J.S. Giguere

Lot's of questions tonight for starting goaltenders, I will keep an eye on the regular sources and update this post if I find new information.

The Kings, the Avalanche and the Lightning all played last night so the listed started for those teams is a strong, edumacated guess, although Budaj has played well lately and Theodore may ride the pine as the Avs try to push for a playoff spot.

The Columbus Blue Jackets picked up Brian Boucher off of waivers recently and there has not been enough time to spot a trend for their starting goaltender. My best guess is Norrena but he has been shakey lately so they may go with Boucher.

UPDATES: The Columbus Dispatch is reporting Norrena as the starter tonight.

The Arizona Republic is reporting that Mikael Tellqvist will start tonight for Phoenix.

As I noted, I will keep an eye on the news wires and update you if I find new info.
