Demko stopped 45 of 49 shots in a 5-4 shootout win over the Islanders. Demko was kept busy throughout the game, but he settled in over the final 20 minutes of play and then stopped all three of the Islanders' shootout attempts. The 24-year-old goalie improved to 13-10-2 with a 3.06 GAA and a .905 save percentage in 27 appearances this year.
According to Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver, Demko was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, which suggests he'll get the start in goal in Tuesday's home game versus the Islanders. Demko has struggled recently, compiling a 1-4-0 record while posting a sub-par 3.05 GAA and .897 save percentage through his last five appearances. He'll attempt to get back on track in a home matchup with a free-falling Islanders club that's gone 0-3-3 in its last six games.
Demko gave up two goals on 22 shots in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Blue Jackets. Demko has lost four of his last five starts, although Sunday was the first time he allowed fewer than three goals in that span. The 24-year-old goalie dipped to 12-10-2 with a 3.03 GAA and a .904 save percentage in 26 appearances. Expect Demko to continue to see most of the starts with Jacob Markstrom (lower body) out.
Demko will patrol the home crease for Sunday's home clash versus Columbus. Demko has been decent in his past five starts, going 2-3-0 along with a 3.22 GAA and .902 save percentage over that span. He'll draw a solid matchup against a Blue Jackets offense that ranks 27th in the league in goals per game this season (2.58).
Demko allowed three goals on 32 shots in Friday's 6-3 win over the Avalanche. Demko snapped a three-game losing streak, but he allowed at least three goals for the fifth straight outing. The 24-year-old goalie improved to 12-9-2 with a 3.07 GAA and a .904 save percentage in 25 appearances. It's hard to recommend Demko for fantasy purposes based on his recent performances.
