      Sabres' Chad Johnson: Called upon in relief versus Preds

      Johnson stopped all 12 shots he faced in relief of Linus Ullmark in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Predators. Johnson has been locked into somewhat of a timeshare situation with Ullmark the last few weeks, but could wind up seeing a greater share of the starting load going forward, given Ullmark's poor play Wednesday.

      Sabres' Chad Johnson: To see crease as Saturday's starter

      Johnson will tend twine as Saturday night's starter against Dallas, Paul Hamilton of WGR 550 reports. Dallas figures to be an intimidating opponent based on its 16-4-0 record and plus-21 goal differential, but Johnson has stood tall in goal with 70 saves on 73 shots combined over his past three showings.

      Sabres' Chad Johnson: Thirty saves in overtime loss

      Johnson made 30 saves in the Sabres' 2-1 overtime loss to the Sharks. He stood tall for most of the night, but was besieged in overtime -- the Sabres couldn't seem to get the puck out of their own zone and Patrick Marleau eventually slid the puck past Johnson in a mad scramble in front of the net. It was a solid effort, but perhaps not enough to give him the platoon edge over Linus Ullmark.

      Sabres' Chad Johnson: Penciled in as Saturday's starting goalie

      Johnson will try to protect the net as Saturday's starter against the Sharks. The Sabres are gelling with three straight wins though Johnson was involved in only one of those victories, a start against the Lightning this past Tuesday when he denied 30 of 31 shots on the road. Johnson's on that goalie carousel with Linus Ullmark and we believe that will continue to be the trend as long as Robin Lehner is out of action with his high ankle sprain.

      Sabres' Chad Johnson: Makes 30 saves in stunning win over Bolts

      Johnson made 30 saves on 31 shots in Thursday's surprising 4-1 win over the Lightning. Well, that was unexpected. After Linus Ullmark started four straight games, delivering strong work, Johnson got the call for Tuesday's tough draw in Tampa, and he delivered the goods. Unfortunately, the 29-year-old has shown us flashes before, and they never seem to pan out to much more than that. So although this was an impressive outing, that doesn't mean Johnson's become a reliable fantasy starter.

      Sabres' Chad Johnson: Will start in goal Tuesday

      Johnson will be in the crease as the starter Tuesday night against the Lightning, Joe Yerdon of reports. Johnson has not played much lately, as the Sabres opted to start Linus Ullmark in the first three November matches. However, Johnson did make his way into a contest Nov. 5, after watching Ullmark cough up three goals on 11 shots. The goalie situation in Buffalo has timeshare written all over it, at least until Robin Lehner, who opened the season as the top goalie, is able to return from an ankle injury.

      Sabres' Chad Johnson: Makes 10 saves in relief Thursday

      Johnson came in for Linus Ullmark and didn't allow a goal on 10 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Lightning. Johnson was most likely looking forward to a night off, but had to come in after Ullmark struggled mightily in the first period. He played nearly two full periods, but should start Saturday against the Canucks with plenty of time to rest.

      Sabres' Chad Johnson: Will start Thursday

      Johnson will start Thursday against the Penguins, reports Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald. Johnson will make his second straight start after a 4-3 overtime win against Philadelphia on Tuesday. Other than a stinker against Montreal, Johnson has been quite solid for the Sabres, who are still without starter Robin Lehner (high ankle sprain). Johnson owners are cautioned against starting him against the Pens, who still boast a lot of firepower and are coming off a 3-1 win over the high-flying Capitals.

      Sabres' Chad Johnson: Holds on for OT win over Flyers

      Mason stopped 30 of 33 shots en route to a 4-3 overtime win against the Flyers on Tuesday. After the Habs bombarded him for seven goals in his last start, this was a crucial bounce-back effort for Johnson, who made a spectacular save on Sam Gagner in overtime that turned the tide for Buffalo. Nonetheless, as a career backup who's been forced into a starting role on a team that's still finding its way defensively, Johnson hasn't been much of a fantasy asset, and that doesn't seem likely to change.

      Sabres' Chad Johnson: Will start Tuesday

      Johnson will be in goal for Tuesday's game against the Flyers, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports. Johnson will be looking to get back on track after being knocked around by the Canadiens for seven goals his last time out. He will square off against a Flyers team that won four of its last five games heading into Tuesday's contest.
