Anders Nilsson picked up the win Saturday in a 3-2 shootout victory over the Penguins. He made 39 saves.
It was his fifth start in six games. Cam Talbot has been scuffling and Nilsson is stepping up at the right time. Any goalie in the Oil Patch will be a tough activation unless they shore up their two-way play.
Semyon Varlamov stopped 25 of 28 shots, holding off a late Winnipeg push Saturday.
Even though he grabbed the win, Varlamov has been sub-.900 in four of his last five games.
Mike Condon allowed just three goals on 31 shots Saturday, but absorbed the 3-2 overtime loss to New Jersey.
He stands to earn big time in the net now that Carey Price could be lost for a month. Condon has played well so far and will need to maintain that level of play to keep his mates in the hunt. He's good enough to do just that. Check your wire.
Alex Galchenyuk scored both Habs' goals in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Devils on Saturday night.
The move to wing has energized the talented forward and his point streak now stands at five games and seven points, including five goals.
Cory Schneider made 30 saves in a 3-2 overtime win over Montreal on Saturday night.
He's just 5-4-1 in his last 10 games, but his individual stats are outstanding. He's on his way to a 30-plus win season with great stats and he's just entering his prime. He's a great trade target.
