Halak got his first win in three games, while earning his fifth shutout. With a 2.41 goals-against average and .913 save percentage, it’s not like Halak has been all that great this season. He’s just been leaps and bounds better than what the Isles have gotten between the pipes in recent years.

Jaroslav Halak, as speculated earlier, will indeed get the call to start in net for the Islanders Saturday night for a tilt against the Devils in New Jersey.

Halak missed the Isles' past two games and the team lost them both. Halak will be trying to end his own two-game losing streak against the Devils. Against New Jersey this season, Halak is 3-0-0 with a 1.60 goals-against average and a .942 save percentage. So if you can use him for fantasy play Saturday, you'd be wise to do so.

Coach Jack Capuano said that Jaroslav Halak is ready to return from a lower-body injury.

The Islanders bench boss declared the team's number one goalie "good to go" after he took part in Thursday's practice. Halak missed the past two games and New York lost them both. He'll be looking to end a two-game losing streak of his own on Saturday against New Jersey, assuming he gets the call as expected.

Jaroslav Halak is dealing with a lower-body injury.

Halak is regarded as day-to-day, but what we do know is that he won't start in Tuesday's game. Michal Neuvirth will get that opportunity while Kevin Poulin will presumably serve as the backup netminder after being summoned on an emergency basis.

Jaroslav Halak stopped 26 of 28 shots in Friday's 2-1 loss to Ottawa.

Halak was perfect in the first and third periods but the two goals he surrendered in the second period were enough to hand him a loss.

Mar 13 - 10:25 PM

Jaroslav Halak will get the start versus the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.

Halak will make his 50th start of the season while sporting a 34-14-1 record with a .911 save percentage and a 2.47 GAA. However, he owns just 29 Quality Starts against five Really Bad Starts. Not quite the ratio one would expect for a goalie backstopping a potential top overall seed. Regardless, Halak has won both of his starts versus the Sens as an Islander this season, allowing just three goals on 39 shots. He's 5-5-2 with 31 goals against overall against Canada's capital city.

Mar 10 - 9:57 PM

Jaroslav Halak will get the start in Tuesday's battle of New York.

Halak is 3-1-1 in his last five starts. The 29-year-old has a 2-1-0 record against the Rangers this season and he has allowed three, one and six goals in those games. Halak has an overall record of 34-13-1 with a 2.48 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage.

Jaroslav Halak allowed three goals on 31 shots as the Islanders topped the Nashville Predators 4-3 on Thursday night.

Halak improves to 34-13-1, just two wins shy of league-leader Carey Price and one short of Pekka Rinne, who he beat on Thursday. His .911 save percentage and 2.48 goals against average aren't quite in the league of the two goalies mentioned, but as long as he keeps scooping up the victories, Halak is one of the best fantasy goaltenders in the game right now.
