Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Takes tough-luck loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varlamov stopped 23 of 25 shots in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Devils.

In what's become a familiar theme recently, Varlamov didn't get much offensive support. He's played so well that it often hasn't mattered, but Varlamov has little room for error given New York's inability to generate offense. The Russian netminder is 4-4-1 in his last nine starts, with a 4-0-1 record when he allowed no more than one goal and four regulation losses whenever he gave up at least two in this recent stretch.

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Facing Devils on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varlamov will start Thursday's game against the visiting Devils, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Varlamov has been absolutely sensational in his second campaign with the Islanders, putting up eye-popping ratios (2.02 GAA, .930 save percentage) to go with a 19-10-9. record. In addition, the Islanders are 20-3-3 at home this year, so Varly makes for a fantastic play against a New Jersey squad playing its second last game of the regular season.

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Finally solved in loss to Sabres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varlamov stopped 36 of 39 shots Monday in a 4-2 loss to Buffalo.

Varlamov appeared to have a shot at a fourth consecutive shutout until Buffalo's Tage Thompson buried a power-play goal with 5:56 left in the second period to pull the Sabres to within 2-1. That tally not only ended Varlamov's franchise-record shutout streak at 248:00, but it was also the first of four unanswered Buffalo goals. Varlamov dropped to 19-10-4 on the year, with a still sparkling 2.02 GAA and .903 save percentage. He'll likely get the night off for Tuesday's rematch in favor of Ilya Sorokin.

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: In goal Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varlamov will get the starting nod for Monday's tilt in Buffalo, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Varlamov has been a brick wall as of late for the Islanders. Over his last four starts, he's allowed just one goal on a combined 107 shots, giving him a stellar 1.99 GAA and .930 save percentage for the season. The 33-year-old is a perfect 3-0-0 while allowing five goals on 79 shots against the Sabres this season.

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Another shutout sets team record
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varlamov made 28 saves in a 3-0 win over the Rangers on Saturday. It was his third straight shutout.

He's kryptonite to the Rangers -- this was his fourth shutout of the season against them. Varlamov leads the league with seven, including two in three nights, and hasn't allowed a goal in 213:56. That stretch is a new Islanders record, besting the great Chico Resch (178:26). The Isles clinched a playoff spot Saturday and are surely hoping Varlamov goes on a dominant run like this in the postseason.

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Guarding crease Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varlamov will patrol the blue paint for Saturday's home game against the Rangers, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Varlamov is coming off his sixth shutout of the season Thursday, turning aside all 25 shots the Rangers threw his way. The veteran netminder is 18-9-4 with a strong 2.05 GAA and .928 save percentage through 32 games this season. He's completely dominated the Rangers during their season series, going 4-1-0 while allowing just four goals on 140 total shots.

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Notches third shutout of Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varlamov set aside all 25 shots in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Rangers.

Varlamov continued his tremendous play against the Rangers, improving to 4-1 against them this season with three shutouts. The Islanders' stifling defense made this one easy for Varlamov, and the team's struggling offense broke out with two goals in the first period and one apiece in the second and third. These same two teams will face off again Saturday, but it remains to be seen whether Varlamov's success against the Rangers will get him another look over Ilya Sorokin in that one.

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varlamov will draw the road start for Thursday's game against the Rangers, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

The Russian will handle starting duties after a two-game hiatus, looking to nab his 18th win of the season. Varlamov has been solid this season, going 17-9-4 along with a 2.12 GAA and .926 save percentage. Varlamov has been strong against the Rangers this season in four appearances, going 3-1-0 along with a .965 save percentage and 1.01 GAA over that span.

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Could start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varlamov (undisclosed) hasn't been named the starter for Thursday's matchup with the Rangers, but he'll be an option for coach Barry Trotz.

Varlamov didn't dress for Tuesday's matchup with Washington, but he was likely just given the day off for rest. Varly or Ilya Sorokin will almost certainly get the starting nod against the Rangers.

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Gets day off Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varlamov (undisclosed) won't dress for Tuesday's game in Washington, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

Ilya Sorokin's starting for New York, with Cory Schneider working as the backup. The reason for Varlamov's absence isn't clear at this point, but there's a good chance that it's simply a day off rather than anything injury-related.

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Earns league-leading fifth shutout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varlamov stopped all 28 shots he faced in a 1-0 shootout loss to Washington.

Varlamov posted his fifth shutout of the season, tied for the most in the NHL, but was denied the victory when Nicklas Backstrom and Evgeny Kuznetsov finally solved him during the shootout. Varlamov has been pretty locked in over his last five starts, logging a .957 save percentage despite winning just twice (2-2-1) during that stretch.

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Tending twine Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varlamov will tend the home cage for Thursday's game against Washington, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

The Russian broke out of a mini-slump in Tuesday's 6-1 over the Rangers, stopping 25 of 26 shots in the contest. Varlamov will get his sixth appearance against the Capitals this season, as he's gone 2-3-0 along with an .886 save percentage and 3.04 GAA to this point. It will be a stiff test for Varlamov, as Washington has averaged 5.00 goals per contest in their last five games.

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Ends mini-slump with convincing win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varlamov made 25 saves in Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Rangers.

A Kevin Rooney goal in the second period prevented Varlamov from notching his third shutout of the season against the crosstown rivals, but he stood tall and withstood a Rangers surge after Rooney's goal cut the Islanders' lead to two. The Islanders took back momentum in the third period, pouring on three more goals to pull away. This was a nice bounce-back effort after the Islanders were defeated 4-1 in each of Varlamov's previous two starts.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varlamov stopped 41 of 44 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Bruins.

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Falls to Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varlamov stopped 32 of 35 shots in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Rangers.

The Blueshirts' final goal was scored into an empty net. Varlamov didn't play badly, but he didn't get much support, and the Rangers may have been due after he shut them out in their first two meetings this year. On the season, Varlamov sports a 16-8-3 record with a 2.21 GAA and a .922 save percentage.

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Comes up with perfect effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Varlamov turned aside 29 shots in a 1-0 victory over the Capitals on Monday.

Varlamov silenced Washington's high-octane offense and kept things scoreless long enough for teammate Brock Nelson to deliver the game-winner with less than seven minutes left in regulation. It was the fourth shutout of the season for Varlamov, who improved to 16-7-3 on the year with a .922 save percentage.

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Patrolling crease Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

He did beat the Capitals in his last start despite letting in four goals on just 22 shots. Varlamov will need to be on top of his game once again, as the Caps are second in the league with 3.42 goals per contest.
