  • Stars' Antti Niemi: Takes loss in relief

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/1/16) Niemi entered at the start of the second period in Sunday's Game 2 loss to the Blues, stopping 19 of 20 shots.

    Starter Kari Lehtonen struggled mightily, allowing three goals on just five shots in the opening frame, paving the way for a change in net. Niemi played admirably in his stead, but unfortunately the one goal he allowed came in overtime, as St. Louis evened up the series. Lehtonen has been mostly reliable in the playoffs though, so Niemi likely will return to the bench for the start of Game 3.

    Stars' Antti Niemi: Burned for five goals in Game 5 loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/23/16) Niemi gave up five goals on 24 shots in Friday's Game 5 overtime loss to the Stars.

    It was a rough night for Niemi, who was outplayed by opposing netminder Devan Dubnyk. Niemi looked solid in his 2016 postseason debut in Game 4, but he came unraveled against the Wild in Game 5. The Stars have tons of firepower up front, but face some uncertainty in the crease moving forward, as it's possible they could turn back to Kari Lehtonen for Game 6.

    Stars' Antti Niemi: In crease for Game 5

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/22/16) Niemi will be in the crease for Friday's Game 5 matchup with the Wild.

    Niemi led the Sharks to victory in Game 4 by stopping 28 of the 30 shots sent his way, helping the club take a commanding 3-1 lead in the series. Now that he's taken the lead role in goal, the 32-year-old may not relinquish it unless he posts a dud as well. The Stars will attempt to close out the Wild (who are still without multiple top-six forwards due to injury) to avoid traveling back to Minnesota and his home splits this season (2.37 GAA, .912 save percentage) seem to suggest he'll have a legitimate shot at doing so.

    Stars' Antti Niemi: Stops 28 in Game 4 win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/21/16) Niemi earned a road split for the Stars by stopping 28 of 30 shots to beat the Wild 3-2 in his 2016 playoff debut Wednesday.

    Niemi stayed ready until called upon, and stepped up with a road win after Kari Lehtonen got shelled for four goals in Game 3. With Lehtonen winning games 1 and 2 in Dallas and Niemi playing well in his first action in Minnesota, it's unclear who head coach Lindy Ruff will go with in net for Game 5 back in Texas. Whoever it is should be favored playing at home behind the explosive Stars offense.

    Stars' Antti Niemi: In goal Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/20/16) Niemi will tend the twine for Wednesday's Game 4 matchup with Minnesota, Josh Cooper of Yahoo.com reports.

    Niemi's confirmation in goal continues the season long trend in Dallas of rotating their netminders. It was a short leash for Kari Lehtonen who gets the hook despite allowing one lone score in the first two games of the series. While sharing time has been the norm, the 32-year-old Niemi will face the unenviable task of coming into the postseason having not played since the final regular season outing, which should give fantasy owners pause.

    April 4, 2015: Sharks Turn To Niemi
    Niemi will start Saturday against the Coyotes, according to Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic.Alex Stalock is fighting through an illness while Niemi is coming off a nice 20-of-21 save start Friday after coming off an illness of his own, so the Sharks will turn to him again. Any start against the Coyotes is a good one daily formats, up and down as Niemi has been this season.
    April 4, 2015: Sharks' Niemi Prevails Friday
    Niemi grabbed the win against Arizona on Friday, stopping 20 of 21 shots in a 3-1 victory.Although it was against the West's resident cellar dwellers, this was a nice win for Niemi, who had sat out the previous three games with an illness. Backup Alex Stalock is reportedly dealing with an illness now, so it's conceivable that Niemi will start again Saturday against the very same Coyotes. Stay tuned.
