Confirmed NHL Starting Goalies Tonight 2017-18
With endless information across the web, you can easily find NHL Starting Goalies for that current night. However, if you’re a hockey fan, it does not take a college graduate to predict who will start in net the current night.
Here at Pucking Hockey, we follow hockey very closely. Every game, every player and most importantly every goaltender. Without knowing this information, we would not be able to predict who will start in between the pipes for our handicapping skills.
NHL Starting Goalies is the most important aspect when it comes to handicapping this great sport of hockey. It doesn’t always come down to stats. As a matter of fact, that’s the most overrated aspect of handicapping ice hockey. This sport is built off of emotion and if a goaltender enters a game knowing the opposing teams have had his number since day 1. He will step his game up. Or at least try to.
Yes, those stats can be found and can be used, but not all the time. Trades happen so often; it will cause an imbalance in line chemistry, which ultimately tilts towards the goaltender’s favor.
Finally, a goaltender is only as good as the defense in front of him. Yes, some goalies can carry a team on his shoulders, however, in today’s game, he won’t make it through a long grueling season. Hockey is much more skilled along with much more clever schemes on the ice than it was 10+ years ago.
You can find career numbers for each individual goalie each night here. Not only is this information valuable for fantasy hockey, but most importantly, betting on this great game we called hockey!
