  • Avalanche's Alexandar Georgiev: Suffers OT loss

    Georgiev stopped 26 of Vegas' 30 shots during Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss.

    Georgiev played well for the majority of the game, but Vegas scored three goals in the third before taking the OT win. His recent performances haven't been inspiring. Over the last six games, Georgiev has allowed six goals twice and four goals three times, causing him to be pulled twice. It will be hard for fantasy managers to trust him when the playoffs start.

  • Avalanche's Alexandar Georgiev: Gets hook in rout

    Georgiev allowed four goals on 15 shots before being replaced by Justus Annunen late in the first period of Saturday's 7-0 loss to the Jets.

    The awful result was a team-wide effort by the Avalanche, and two of the goals against Georgiev came on Jets power plays while three of the four came from in close. Even so, the 28-year-old netminder has only one win in his last six outings, going 1-3-1 with a brutal 5.18 GAA and .848 save percentage. Colorado already has a playoff spot locked up, but the club's No. 1 goalie won't be taking much momentum into the postseason.

    Georgiev will be in goal Sunday on the road versus the Golden Knights, Ryan Boulding of NHL.com reports.

He dropped to 38-18-4 on the year, and he's now allowed four or more goals in four of his last six outings. He'll have another tough test Sunday against the Golden Knights, who have scored 21 goals over their last five games despite winning just twice in that span.

  • Avalanche's Alexandar Georgiev: Gets nod Tuesday

    Georgiev will start Tuesday at home against Minnesota, per Jesse Montano of Guerilla Sports.

The 28-year-old has seen his numbers drop this year compared to last year, logging an .898 save percentage and a 37-17-4 record in 60 starts.

  • Avalanche's Alexandar Georgiev: Falters again versus Stars

    Georgiev stopped 30 of 36 shots in Sunday's 7-4 loss to the Stars. The seventh goal was an empty-netter.

    Georgiev has given up six goals in back-to-back games, and he's 0-2-1 with 18 goals allowed over his last four outings. The 28-year-old was done in by the Stars' power play, which tallied three times in the second period. For the season, he's at 37-17-4 with a 2.96 GAA and an .898 save percentage through 60 contests overall. Head coach Jared Bednar gave Georgiev a vote of confidence last Saturday, but the goalie is not doing much to reward that, which could lead to Justus Annunen getting more looks to close out the regular season.

  • Avalanche's Alexandar Georgiev: Pelted with pucks in loss

    Georgiev allowed six goals on 46 shots in Friday's 6-2 loss to the Oilers.

    Georgiev's extended break didn't pay off -- he hadn't played since Saturday when he was pulled after giving up four goals on 13 shots versus the Predators. The first period Friday was even, but Georgiev let in a pair of goals in each of the final two frames to take another ugly loss. The 28-year-old is down to 37-16-4 with a 2.91 GAA and a .900 save percentage through 59 appearances. The Avalanche still have playoff positioning to fight for, so Georgiev will likely continue to see starts, though Justus Annunen has put in solid efforts since the start of March in the backup role.

  • Avalanche's Alexandar Georgiev: No change in status

    Colorado head coach Jared Bednar said following Saturday's 7-4 win over Nashville that Georgiev will remain the Avalanche's starter heading down the stretch into the playoffs, Evan Rawal of Colorado Hockey Now reports.

    Bednar was critical of Georgiev's play Saturday. The goalie was pulled after giving up four goals in 21 minutes and picking up an unsportsmanlike penalty, as Nashville raced to a 4-2 lead early in the second period. Justus Annunen shut the door the rest of the way, but the head coach insisted there was no change to his goalie rotation.

    Georgiev was off his game Saturday. He took an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty before being pulled just 57 seconds into the second period. Juuse Saros and Georgiev have been the busiest netminders in the NHL this season, and the Avs need their goaltender to rest a bit in advance of the postseason. Beware his schedule.

    Georgiev gave up four goals on 34 shots in a 5-4 overtime win over the Penguins on Sunday.

The netminder leads the league with 37 wins this season, but his mediocre 2.82 GAA and .902 save percentage put a dent in his Vezina Trophy chances. Georgiev has been starting two of every three contests in March, so he could be on the bench against Montreal on Tuesday.
