St. Louis Blues at Boston Bruins
Allen allowed four goals on 31 shots in the Blues loss in Philadelphia on Monday. Despite the loss last night, the Blues will go back to Allen tonight in Boston. That puts Allen at 4-4-0 with 2.37 GAA and .912 SV% in December, easily his worst month of the season, but still solid. Tonight he will take on a Bruins team that has won five of their last six games.
Rask allowed two goals on 32 shots in the Bruins win in Pittsburgh on Friday. Rask has won five straight starts while posting a 0.80 GAA and .972 SV%. He is red hot right now and with Jonas Gustavsson starting on Sunday and Rask skipping today’s optional morning skate, look for Rask to get back into the net vs. the Blues. St. Louis comes in as winners of three of their last four.
Anaheim Ducks at New York Rangers
Gibson allowed one goal on 19 shots after replacing Frederik Andersen in Monday’s loss in Brooklyn. The Ducks will wrap up their pre-Christmas schedule with a back-to-back tonight in New York. Gibson is 4-4-1 on the year but 0-2-0 with a 2.68 GAA and .905 SV% on the road this season.
Lundqvist was pulled after allowing five goals on 24 shots i the Rangers blowout 7-3 loss to the Capitals on Sunday. Yikes! Lundqvist has lost three in a row while posting a dreadful 5.37 GAA and .856 SV%.
New Jersey Devils at Detroit Red Wings
Howard allowed three goals on 40 shots in the Red Wings’ shootout loss to the Canucks on Friday. Howard has lost three in a row, two in a shootout, one in overtime, while posting a 2.49 GAA and .932 SV%. One of the overtime losses came against the Devils, who he will again tonight in Detroit—Howard is 5-4-1 with a 2.16 GAA and .922 SV% at home.
Schneider made 38 saves on 39 shot attempts in the Devils’ 2-1 shootout loss in Boston on Sunday. The extra time defeat moved Schneider to an even 3-3-3 with a 2.29 GAA and .923 SV% in the month of December. Tonight he will make his second start of the season vs. Detroit. He won the first in come-from-behind overtime fashion in New Jersey—tonight will be in Detroit. Schneider is 8-3-2 with a 2.04 GAA and .936 SV% on the road
Vancouver Canucks at Tampa Bay Lightning
Markstrom allowed two goals on 31 shots in the Canucks loss in Philadelphia last Thursday. Ryan Miller started the last two games, but it will be Markstrom tonight in Tampa Bay. Markstrom is 1-3-3 with a 2.76 GAA and .911 SV% this season and tonight will be his seventh start of the season. He will take on a Lightning team that has won three of four while averaging 3.75 goals per game.
Bishop surrendered two goals on 25 shots in the Lightning’s win over the Senators on Sunday. The win pushed him to 5-2-0 with a 1.89 GAA and .930 SV% in December. Tonight he will see a Canucks team that has lost four of their last five
Ottawa Senators at Florida Panthers
Anderson allowed two goals on 33 shots in the Senators win over the Sharks last Thursday. Andrew Hammond has started two of the last three games, but lost on Sunday, so Ottawa will go back to Anderson tonight in Florida. The veteran netminder is 5-4-0 with a 2.86 GAA and .916 SV% in December and tonight will be his second start vs. Florida—in the first meeting he made 25 saves in a 4-2 win.
Luongo gave up four goals on 34 shots, but walked away with the shootout win over his former team on Sunday. He has now won three in a row while posting a 1.63 GAA and .946 SV%. Luongo has been extremely streaky this season and tonight he will face a banged up Senators team for the second time—he gave up three goals on 22 shots in a 4-2 loss in their first meeting.
Montreal Canadiens at Minnesota Wild
Kuemper allowed two goals on 31 shots in the Wild’s win over the Canucks last Tuesday. When Devan Dubnyk got hurt, Kuemper impressed, going 2-0-2 with a 1.48 GAA and .938 SV% in four starts. Dubnyk started last night, so it will be Kuemper to wrap up the Wild’s pre-Christmas schedule tonight against the sliding Canadiens.
Condon allowed one goal on four shots after replacing Dustin Tokarski in last night’s 5-1 loss in Nashville. Condon has not recorded a win since December 1st. He has gone 0-5-0 with a 3.36 GAA and .854 SV% in five starts and two relief appearances since. Tonight he will face a Wild team that has won three of five while averaging 3.60 goals per game
Chicago Blackhawks at Dallas Stars

Toronto Maple Leafs at Arizona Coyotes
Jonathan Bernier vs Louis Domingue
Domingue stopped all 25 shots that he faced in the Coyotes shutout win over the Islanders last Friday. It was a nice first start of the season for Domingue, who will obviously get another shot tonight vs. the Maple Leafs. Toronto’s offence has been particularly hot as of late, winning four of six while averaging 4.50 goals per game over that span.
San Jose Sharks at Los Angeles Kings
