Thomas Greiss was the first goalie off the ice after the morning skate, meaning its likely he's the starter. However, coach Todd McLellan said it would be a game-time decision on whether it's Greiss or Antti Niemi.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
