Fantasy Hockey 2012: Saturday Starting Backup Goalies

Dwayne Roloson, Lightning vs. Penguins - Roloson hasn't performed great against the Penguins and has only won 5 games in 14 career starts. Considering how strong the Pens are, Rolo isn't a great play today. UPDATE Boy, I hope you listened to me all you Roloson owners. Yeesh.

Chris Mason, Jets vs. Jaroslav Halak, Blues - Mason has had an impressive track record against the Blues in 20 career starts but the current Blues are playing well lately. Halak has had a sub-par record against the Jets/Thrashers in only 5 career starts but Halak has been playing very well lately since splitting time with Brian Elliott. Should be a good matchup.

Alex Auld, Senators vs. Bruins - Just a gentle reminder that Craig Anderson is out due to a lacerated hand and he'll be out for a while. He's performed well against the Bruins in 7 career starts but I still would be a bit leery of starting him unless you're desperate for goalie stats.

Justin Peters, Hurricanes vs. Panthers - Cam Ward has been practicing but I guess they determined that Peters should start again today. Peters had done a good job against the Cats in 3 career starts and might be a decent play with some upside here.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere, Avalanche vs. Red Wings - He's performed pretty good against the Wings in 23 career starts but has managed only 5 wins. He's a decent play against the Wings if you have him but be careful.

UPDATE

Michal Neuvirth, Capitals vs. Maple Leafs - Sounds like the Caps are riding the hot hand. It still isn't a pretty match-up thanks to both teams struggling hard lately. Neuvirth has not performed well in 6 career starts against the Leafs. Be careful here.
