As for the starting goaltender, it will be Evgeni Nabokov, though Mikko Koskinen will likely see time.

Capuano said, "He’s (Nabokov) played so much hockey and he understands we want to give the young kids a look as well. We know what he’s going to bring to the table he’s going to play, I don’t know if he’s going to play the whole game out there right now, but he’s going to play a majority of the game and as we move on he’s going to play more and more."
