    Default One start today or Sunday

    Due to limited call ups, I have to choose just one of these goalie starts. Given stats of W, GAA, SVS, SV%, SHO, which single start would you be most comfortable with?

    Lindback vsWPG (today)
    Hedberg @NYI (sunday)
    Neuvirth/Holtby vsPIT (sunday)

    I'd take my chances with Lindback against WPG. The Jets are coming off a back to back yesterday and fatigue might hurt them here. They might be playing against the WPG back up as well so it doesn't get better than that.

    I agree. Tampa offence is the most equipped to bail Lindback out (if he has a bad game).

    do you know for sure Hedberg is getting the start? he played really well against the Bruins and the Devils have a solid D. Lindback is a fine option too and probably the more certain to start if you are uncertain on starts

    Devils' goalie plan for weekend: Brodeur at Pittsburgh Saturday, Hedberg at Isles Sunday.

    Hedberg is one of the better backups in the league, he played very well on Jersey last season (17-7-2, 2.23 GAA, .918 S%, 4 SO). There's no reason to suspect he won't continue that trend this season. He was also stellar against NYI last year (3-0-0, 0.67 GAA, .970 S%, 1SO).

    Went with Lindback actually, happy with the win, but that shutout would have been nice.
