I'm a huge proponent of the "start your studs" school of thought, but nothing's 100% in fantasy hockey and you always have to evaluate each unique situation.
Lundqvist is the best goalie in the world, and the Pens are struggling, but STL vs CBJ is too sweet of a match-up to pass up on. That's as good as it gets in terms of lopsidedness... you've got a strong defensive team that's just rolling, you've got a decent goalie (albeit he's no Lundqvist), and you've got the shittiest offensive team in the league.
I wouldn't fault anyone for choosing to start King Henrik, ever, but if it were me I'd be sitting him tonight.
