    Default Start 2 tonight: Niemi, Anderson, or Backstrom?

    Who to start tonight? I can only start 2 and all 3 are at home.

    Anderson vs Neuverth
    Backstrom vs Mason
    Niemi vs Hiller

    I have a feeling that San Jose get their first loss tonight, but what do you guys think?

    I'd go Niemi and Anderson until proven differently given how well both players/clubs have generally played thus far.

    Edit: Oops, I didn't see that Spezza was out. In that case I'd also sit Anderson in favor of Backstrom.

    I'll go with Niemi and Anderson. Sharks are undefeated, and while a loss is probably coming soon, I'd rather not have Niemi on the bench with the streak going. Anderson because the Caps have looked awful, Spezza or no Spezza, Anderson has been great to start the season.
