Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins announced in his post-practice press conference today that Jason LaBarbera will be starting in goal on Monday against the New Jersey Devils.
"What I'll do is I'll look at the schedule and then I look at the month and I have it in my head where I'm going to go," said Eakins, talking about his mindset when choosing a starting goaltender. "But plans change all the time. If one guy gets hot, he's playing. I don't care what the plan is with the other guy. If one guy is running with it then that's the way it goes."
