  • Lightning's Peter Budaj: Takes 5-4 shootout loss in first start

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/17/17) Budaj allowed four goals on 34 shots in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to New Jersey.

    Budaj gave up a game-tying, power-play tally to Drew Stafford with under five minutes to play and was beaten by Kyle Palmieri in the third round of the skills challenge to take the shootout loss. Making his first start in Tampa Bay's seventh game of the season, the veteran backup allowed three goals in the first period before steadying himself until New Jersey's late-game heroics. With 23-year-old starter Andrei Vasilevskiy sporting a 5-1-0 record, the 35-year-old Budaj is unlikely to see more than the occasional appearance.

    Lightning's Peter Budaj: Will make season debut Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/17/17) Budaj will guard the goal in Tuesday's road game against the Devils, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

    Budaj was thrust into the starter's role for the Kings last season when Jonathan Quick went down with a long-term injury, and he played well despite those less than ideal circumstances, compiling a 27-20-3 record while registering a 2.12 GAA and .917 save percentage over 53 appearances. He'll look to pick up his first win of the 2017-18 campaign Tuesday in a tough road matchup with a Devils club that's averaging 4.20 goals per game this season, second in the NHL.

    Lightning's Peter Budaj: Allows four in preseason loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/29/17) Budaj stopped 28 of 32 shots in Thursday's 5-2 preseason loss to the Panthers.

    Budaj suffered behind a Bolts defense that was a little on the porous side. Hopefully he won't see as many blown coverages when he's in the blue paint come regular season.

    Lightning's Peter Budaj: Allows three goals on 27 shots

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/25/17) Budaj took a 4-2 preseason loss to the Panthers, letting in three goals on 27 shots Sunday.

    Even though Budaj allowed three goals, he was still able to shut down four of the five power-play opportunities that the Panthers had throughout the game. The 35-year-old came out of nowhere to notch a .915 save percentage and 2.18 GAA last season, stepping up for Los Angeles after Jonathan Quick was placed on injured reserve with a groin issue. Budaj will enter the season behind Andrei Vasilevskiy but has the skill to be a starter if Vasilevskiy falters or goes down with an injury.

    Lightning's Peter Budaj: Receives Sunday's starting nod

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/24/17) Budaj will tend the twine in Sunday's preseason matchup with Florida, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

    The 35-year-old goaltender started his preseason by allowing two goals on 20 shots while playing two periods against Carolina on Wednesday. Budaj is set to back up Andrei Vasilievskiy in the Tampa Bay goal this campaign, though he could be called upon more frequently if the young Russian struggles in his first season as a No. 1 NHL netminder.
