  • Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Earns second straight win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/15/18) Niemi allowed three goals on 28 shots in Monday's 7-3 win over Detroit.

    Oddly enough, in both of Niemi's starts this year, he's yielded exactly three goals on 28 shots en route to victories. He's been solid while Carey Price has missed the last two contests with an illness. Montreal's next game will be Wednesday against the Blues and the goalie situation remains unclear for the time being.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: In goal Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/15/18) Niemi will get the start at home versus the Red Wings on Monday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA reports.

    Charlie Lindgren was returned to the AHL, which made it seem like Carey Price (illness) was ready to play again. Perhaps he's ready to be a backup, but isn't quite up to starting just yet. Niemi has a career .913 save percentage, so the Red Wings are probably happy to see him in net instead of Price.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Difference maker against Pens

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/13/18) Niemi made 25 saves through overtime and stymied the Penguins in the shootout Saturday to deliver a 4-3 win for the Canadiens.

    Niemi was particularly sharp in the shootout, shutting down both Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to preserve the win. It was Niemi's first game of the season. He'll see limited action this season behind Carey Price.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Starting Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/13/18) Niemi will start Saturday against the Penguins, John Lu of TSN reports.

    Carey Price came up with a bout of the flu and will not be able to dress Saturday, so Niemi gets his first start of the season while Charlie Lindgren is called up from AHL Laval.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Sharp in Monday's preseason tilt

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/24/18) Niemi made 29 saves in Monday's 5-1 preseason win over the Maple Leafs. He also had an assist in the game.

    While Niemi benefited from facing a Toronto team that sat out most of its regulars, he was still busy, with 18 saves on as many shots in the opening frame alone. Kasperi Kapanen beat him with Toronto's first shot of the second period just 34 seconds after intermission, but Niemi rebounded by stopping the Maple Leafs' 11 subsequent shots in the game and even picked up a helper along the way.
