Johansson stopped 16 of 18 shots in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Kings.
Johansson wasn't overly challenged in the contest, although the two goals he allowed made it a close game. The Swede improved to 4-6-2 in 14 appearances between the Avalanche and the Sabres this season. Johansson has a 3.01 GAA and an .894 save percentage overall. Philipp Grubauer will likely handle the goaltending duties Monday versus the Golden Knights, but Johansson could play against the Kings on either Wednesday or Thursday.

Johansson allowed four goals on 20 shots Monday in a 4-1 loss to the Blues.
The 25-year-old was searching for his third consecutive win but the Blues quickly extinguished those hopes by building a 3-0 lead before the game's midway point. It was the first time in the last four starts that Johansson gave up more than two goals. The trade-deadline acquisition from Buffalo is now 3-1-1 since landing in Colorado.
Johansson will start Monday's game in St. Louis, Rick Sadowski of NHL.com reports.
Johansson has been working as the backup to Devan Dubnyk with Philipp Grubauer in COVID-19 protocols, but the Swede will get a turn in the crease against a Blues team that defeated Dubnyk on Saturday. The Avalanche will likely tilt the ice away from Johansson, especially with the Blues missing Vince Dunn (upper body), Colton Parayko (upper body) and possibly Torey Krug (undisclosed) on the back end, so Johansson's well-positioned for a strong result here.
Johansson was reassigned to the active roster Wednesday, per CapFriendly.
Johansson continues to handle No. 2 duties behind Devan Dubnyk with Philipp Grubauer still residing on the COVID-19 list after a positive test. Johansson has performed well in five appearances this season, going 3-0-2 along with a 1.87 GAA and .929 save percentage over that span. The 25-year-old is likely in line for backup duties for Thursday's game against St. Louis.

Johansson stopped 24 of 25 shots in Sunday's 4-1 win over Anaheim.
The only goal the Ducks managed -- a Jamie Drysdale wrister from the slot in the third period -- came on a shot Johansson never even saw. Johansson was otherwise perfect in nailing down his third win in as many starts. The 25-year-old owns a .951 save percentage in four April appearances, which has allowed workhorse No. 1 starter Philipp Grubauer the chance to catch his breath. Colorado acquired veteran netminder Devan Dubnyk from San Jose earlier this week, which could bump Johansson to a third-string role the rest of the way.
Johansson will start in the road crease Sunday versus the Ducks, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.
Johansson posted a 28-save shutout in Friday's 2-0 win over the Ducks, and the 25-year-old will make a second straight start as a result. Overall, Johansson has posted a .920 save percentage and a 2-0-1 record with the Avalanche. Meanwhile, the Ducks have lost four of their last five games while totaling just 11 goals.
Johansson recorded a 28-save shutout in Friday's 2-0 win over the Ducks.
Johansson had the best game of his young career Friday and won his second straight start for Colorado. The question now is whether he's convinced general manager Joe Sakic to stand pat at the trade deadline. The Avalanche may still be in the market for a backup netminder. Johansson's up to a 2-5-2 record in 11 appearances split between the Avs and the Sabres this year. The 25-year-old has a 3.22 GAA and an .895 save percentage. Friday was likely just a spot start for the Swede to give No. 1 goalie Philipp Grubauer some rest after a rough run of play in the last week.
Johansson will guard the crease in Friday's road game versus the Ducks, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
Johansson has made three appearances (two starts) since being traded to Colorado, recording a 3.06 GAA and an .883 save percentage during that span. He earned his first win of the season in his last start, turning away 25 of 27 shots against the Coyotes on April 2. Friday's start will be a good chance for Johansson to string wins together against the third lowest scoring team in the NHL.
Johansson gave up one goal on one shot in relief of Philipp Grubauer during Wednesday's 8-3 blowout loss to the Wild.
Johansson entered the game in mop-up duty and didn't face much traffic. Kevin Fiala finished his hat trick on the power play on the only shot Johansson faced. The 25-year-old goalie shouldn't be expected to play much down the stretch, even as Grubauer has given up 11 goals in his last two games.
Johansson stopped 25 of 27 shots in Friday's 3-2 win over the Blues.
Johansson had his best start of the year Friday, and it was enough for the Avalanche to get a win. The 25-year-old Swede has struggled with a 1-5-2 record, a 3.57 GAA and an .887 save percentage in nine outings split between the Avalanche and the Sabres. Phillip Grubauer is already confirmed for Saturday's rematch with the Blues -- it's unclear when Johansson will make another appearance.
Johansson will patrol the crease during Friday's matchup with the Blues, NHL.com's Rick Sadowski reports.
Johansson has struggled in limited action this season, going 0-5-2 while posting a sub-par 3.79 GAA and .883 save percentage. He'll attempt to grab his first win of the season in a home matchup with a St. Louis squad that's 12-5-2 on the road this year.
Johansson gave up four goals on 32 shots in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Coyotes.
Johansson got off to a slow start with two goals against in the first five minutes of his Avalanche debut. His teammates scored four straight goals after that, but Johansson couldn't deny the Coyotes' third-period rally. He then allowed all three shooters in the shootout to score, taking the loss. The 25-year-old Swede has a 0-6-1 record with a 3.78 GAA and an .883 save percentage this year. He's not likely to see much playing time as Philipp Grubauer is the clear No. 1 in Colorado.
Johansson will protect the road goal Tuesday versus the Coyotes, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.
Johansson is set to make his Avalanche debut after he was acquired in a trade with the Sabres on Saturday. The Swede went 0-5-1 with a 3.79 GAA and an .884 save percentage in seven games with the Sabres. He should have better fortunes in Colorado -- his new team allows only 24.9 shots per game, the fewest in the league.
Colorado head coach Jared Bednar said Johansson may start Tuesday's game against the Coyotes, Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now reports.
The Avalanche are in the middle of their first back-to-back set since Johansson was acquired from Buffalo to replace Hunter Miska as Philipp Grubauer's backup. Grubauer backstopped Colorado's 5-1 win over Arizona on Monday, which could make it an easier decision for Bednar to go with Johansson.
