Niemi halted 34 of 39 shots during Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Penguins.

At this point, we hope owners are not in a situation where they have to start a netminder from Dallas. Niemi constantly gets lit up, as the 33-year-old has allowed less than two goals just twice in 14 appearances. It was no surprise to see the Penguins execute against Niemi, who sits at a disappointing 3.20 GAA and .902 save percentage this season.
