  • Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Wilts in third period Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/14/18) Niemi stopped 37 of 43 shots in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to Edmonton.

    Niemi was better than the final score indicated and gave Montreal a chance with some superb saves over the first two periods. The Canadiens were down by a goal entering the third before the Oilers' barrage of pressure wilted Niemi. He made his second consecutive start as the Canadiens hope an extended break will cure Carey Price of whatever mental issues he's experiencing. Montreal resumes play Thursday night in Calgary, where we believe Price will be back between the pipes.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Matched up against Oilers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/13/18) Niemi will start in goal Tuesday night against host Edmonton, Ryan Rishaug of TSN.ca reports.

    Niemi is 12-3-3 with a 2.63 GAA and .905 save percentage over 20 career appearances opposing the Oilers. The 35-year-old Finnish goalie -- who went undrafted -- is in the hunt for his third straight win after defeating the Islanders and Golden Knights in his last two trips between the posts.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Stops 34 shots in win over Knights

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/11/18) Niemi stopped 34 of 38 shots in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Golden Knights.

    Montreal's backup netminder hasn't been particularly impressive in his limited opportunities behind Carey Price, allowing at least three goals in all five of his starts, but the Habs' offense has given him plenty of support, leading to a 4-1 record. Niemi's .894 save percentage is more indicative of his level of play, however.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Facing Vegas

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/9/18) Niemi will start between the pipes in Saturday's home game against the Golden Knights, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.

    Niemi hasn't been great in limited action this season, registering a sub-par 3.13 GAA and .893 save percentage through four appearances, but he's compiled a 3-1-0 record over that span due to fantastic goal support from his teammates. The Finnish netminder will look to pick up a second straight win in a home matchup with a Vegas team that's 3-6-0 on the road this campaign.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Turns aside 21 shots in shootout win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/6/18) Niemi stopped 21 of 24 shots before denying all five shootout attempts he saw during Monday's 4-3 win over the Islanders.

    He coughed up three goals in the opening period, but Niemi righted the ship after that and gave the Habs a chance to mount a comeback before they eventually won in the fifth shootout round. The 35-year-old has only started four games so far, but he's won three of them despite a weak .893 save percentage.
