  • Varlamov has a 19-14-6 record, 2.62 GAA, and .914 save percentage in 45 games this season for the Islanders. This hasn't quite been the season that the Islanders and Varlamov were hoping for. When Varlamov signed with the Islanders last offseason for four years and $20 million, it was thought he would be able to hold down the starting job, but that hasn't been the case. Coach Barry Trotz pretty much used a strict rotation through the first half of the season and Varlamov failed several times when given a chance to run with the starting job. Consistency has been an issue and his poor play -- he's allowed 18 goals in his last five starts -- is part of the reason why the Islanders were in quite the freefall before the coronavirus suspended the season. Varlamov will still likely be given the first chance to start for the Islanders if/when the season resumes, but next season he will likely battle with Ilya Sorokin for the job should the Islanders finally be able to entice the KHL star into coming to North America.

  • Varlamov gave up four goals on 34 shots in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Canucks on Tuesday. The back-and-forth battle ended with Varlamov surrendering a shootout tally to J.T. Miller. Varlamov is in a skid -- he's 0-2-2 with 18 goals allowed in his last five appearances (four starts). The Russian netminder slipped to 19-14-7 with a 2.65 GAA and a .913 save percentage in 46 outings. The 31-year-old Varlamov has seen most of the starts lately for the Islanders, but an upcoming back-to-back versus the Flames on Thursday and the Oilers on Friday will likely see him split starts with Thomas Greiss.

  • Per Andrew Gross of Newsday, Varlamov was the first netminder off the ice at morning skate, indicating he'll start Tuesday's road clash with the Canucks. Varlamov has struggled recently, posting an 0-2-1 record while registering an ugly 3.90 GAA and .861 save percentage through his last four appearances. The veteran backstop will try to get back on track in a tough road matchup with a Vancouver team that's 21-9-4 at home this year.

  • Varlamov allowed four goals on 29 shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Ottawa. Another loss means Varlamov will have to wait a bit longer for his 20th victory of the campaign. His last victory came over a week ago, on Feb. 23. With the Islanders returning home to face Carolina on Saturday, it's likely Thomas Greiss will get the start in that game, but Barry Trotz has yet to name a starter for Saturday's contest.

  • Varlamov was the first goalie off the ice at Thursday's practice, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports, indicating he'll be between the pipes on the road versus Ottawa. In his last three outings, including a relief appearance against Montreal on Tuesday, Varlamov registered a 0-1-1 record, 3.82 GAA and .861 save percentage. With both netminders struggling, the Islanders suddenly find themselves in a fight for a wildcard spot. A matchup with the struggling Senators, who are scoring just 2.69 goals per game, could be just what Varlamov needs to get back on track.
