  • Stars' Antti Niemi: Stops just eight in one period of play

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/7/16) Niemi made eight saves through one period of play Saturday, but allowed three Dallas goals and was pulled in favor of Kari Lehtonen to start the second period. He allowed three goals.

    Niemi had won his previous three start, but this one was tough -- the Hawks came to play and the Stars pretty much gifted them opportunities. Neimi will survive and be back on the winning rail soon enough.

    Stars' Antti Niemi: Last just one period Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/6/16) Niemi got pulled after allowing three goals on 11 shots in the first period of Saturday's match against Chicago.

    Niemi has had the net every game since Jan. 19, so it's hard to imagine this means that he's lost the starter job, but it was an ugly start for the Finn.

    Stars' Antti Niemi: Receives starting nod Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/6/16) Niemi will be in the crease in Saturday's game against the Blackhawks.

    Niemi has earned wins in three consecutive games, but hasn't been particularly sharp of late, allowing three goals on 24 shots in each of his last two starts. The 32-year-old netminder will look to pick up his 21st win of the season Saturday in a tough matchup with a hot Chicago club that has won three of its last four games.

    Stars' Antti Niemi: Wins third straight

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/5/16) Niemi made 21 saves in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win against Colorado.

    The win gives Niemi three straight and with 30 games started is starting to edge Kari Lehtonen for the starting job. Niemi wasn't particularly sharp, finishing with a .875 save percentage, but as long as he keeps winning games he should get the nod over Lehtonen. Niemi is one of the lower-end starters despite playing on a team that provides a lot of goal support and could still lose the starting job to Lehtonen if he falters down the stretch. Fantasy owners who have Niemi may want to also have Lehtonen as a handcuff.

    Stars' Antti Niemi: Tending to net Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/4/16) Niemi will start between the posts Thursday night against the Avalanche, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

    Niemi will be looking for his third straight win and 20th on the season. The Avs rank eighth in the league with 2.72 goals per game but only three teams average fewer shots on goal at 28.2. Niemi is on the road where he's posted a .903 save percentage in 16 appearances.

    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
