    Sabres' Chad Johnson: Notches career-high 22 wins

    Johnson finished the season with 45 appearances and a 2.36 goals-against average and .920 save percentage to go with his 22 wins. Johnson stepped up in a big way this season after incumbent starter Robin Lehner went down with an ankle injury in two separate instances this season. He finished with a 22-16-4 record and one shutout, helping the Sabres finish just one game below .500 after finishing last the previous season. With a ton of depth at the position, it remains to be seen if the Sabres will retain Johnson. No matter what happens, however, Johnson is still not starting material and will continue his career as a capable backup.

    Sabres' Chad Johnson: Unavailable Saturday due to minor ailment

    Johnson will not be available Saturday against the Islanders, as he's dealing with a minor (undisclosed) injury, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports. It's a shame that Johnson's 2015-16 campaign comes to a close due to injury, but fortunately the mystery ailment isn't severe, and the 29-year-old can make peace with how he finished the season in strong fashion. In his final three appearances, Johnson went 3-0-0 with a 1.67 GAA and .938 save percentage. A severe ankle injury to fellow goalie Robin Lehner contributed to Johnson racking up a career-high 40 starts. Despite Buffalo failing to gain much ground in that tough Atlantic Division, Johnson still managed to post a 22-16-4 record. It's been tough for the netminder to establish job security as he just finished off his first campaign with the Sabres, the fifth team he's played for since the Penguins drafted him with a fifth-round pick in 2006.

    Sabres' Chad Johnson: Has three-game win streak

    Johnson turned aside 18 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 victory over New Jersey. The 29-year-old netmider carried a shutout into the third period, but was beat on the power play by Jacob Josefson with just under six minutes to play. Johnson has won three straight starts and five of his last six. He's finishing the season strong and could make for a nice fantasy play during the final week of the regular season.

    Sabres' Chad Johnson: Starting against Devils

    Johnson gets the starting nod against New Jersey on Tuesday, Paul Hamilton of WGR 550 reports. Johnson will look to turn his two consecutive wins into a streak Tuesday versus a Devils' team that is averaging a league worst 2.20 goals per night. It will be the ninth start in a row for the netminder, who has posted a 5-2-1 record with a 2.36 GAA over that span. With Robin Lerner (ankle) out for the remainder of the season, the 29-year-old may see the bulk of the action, although Buffalo could see what they have in rookie Jason Kasdorf.

    Sabres' Chad Johnson: Stops 36 in winning effort

    Johnson stopped 33 of 36 shots in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Rangers. With Robin Lehner (ankle) out of the picture for the year, Johnson has a unique opportunity to prove his worth down the stretch. The netminder has picked up two straight wins, sporting a .940 save percentage in that short span. The 29-year-old is a definite asset with just three games remaining on the schedule for Buffalo, including a back-to-back.

    Sabres' Chad Johnson: Will start Saturday night

    Johnson will start in Saturday's game against the Rangers. Johnson has been solid between the pipes lately, earning a 4-2-1 record with a 2.27 GAA and a .924 save percentage. The 29-year-old goaltender has been a bright spot on a team that hasn't produced consistent results this season, making him a viable option for fantasy owners.

    Sabres' Chad Johnson: Gets back in win column

    Johnson allowed only one goal on 26 shots in a 4-1 win over the Maple Leafs on Thursday. Johnson had lost his past two games, so the win was much-needed. The 29-year-old will finish the month of March with a 6-4-0 record. He has been playing sold between the pipes, but hasn't gotten the offensive support to match his efforts. Johnson has surpassed his career win total this season with 20, unfortunately he's also surpassed his career loss total this season with 16.

Johnson will look to help the Sabres get back on the winning track in Buffalo (where they have won their last two home tilts) after back-to-back road defeats. Meanwhile, of late, the Leafs have won four of their past six games and seven of their past 10 contests.

    Sabres' Chad Johnson: Allows four goals in loss

    Johnson was beaten four times on 46 shots during Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Penguins. It was a rough outing for the 29 year-old, who has now lost three of his last five starts. Buffalo spotted it's netminder a three-goal lead after the first period, but Johnson allowed four second-period goals before being beat in the shootout. He has had some quality outings since taking over the top spot in net for the Sabres, but the team playing in front of him just isn't good enough yet to produce consistent outcomes.

Overall, Johnson has held his own of late, wining four of his last six decisions for the Sabres, who have been eliminated from the NHL playoff chase.
