Jaroslav Halak allowed three goals on 35 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to Dallas.

The Islanders number one netminder remains stuck on 33 wins, but has experienced quite an impressive season in his first campaign on Long Island. His 2.47 GAA and .911 save percentage are strong enough to provide value when paired with those victories.

Jaroslav Halak will get the start against the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night.

Halak is coming off a 10-start February in which he posted a 7-3-0 record with 26 goals against, not too shabby at all. For the season, Halak owns a 33-13-0 record through 46 starts with a .911 save percentage and a 2.46 GAA. He's also 4-5-0 in nine career starts versus Dallas with a shutout and 23 goals against.

Jaroslav Halak might start a little less down the stretch now that Michal Neuvirth is his understudy.

The Islanders acquired Neuvirth from Buffalo on Monday. Neuvirth has been great with the Sabres lately and should be a big upgrade over former backup goaltender Chad Johnson. Halak probably isn't in much danger of losing the starting gig entirely, but the Islanders should be much more comfortable with giving Halak regular games off now. That might in turn help keep him fresh going into the playoffs.

Jaroslav Halak picked up his 33rd win of the season on Friday to set a New York Islanders record for wins in a season.

Halak was sharing the record of 32 held by Billy Smith, Rick Di Pietro and Chris Osgood before the win over the Flames on Friday. Halak is 33-13-0 with a 2.46 GAA and a .911 save percentage. He is expected to get the night off on Saturday.

He is third in the NHL in wins with 33 and he has a 2.46 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage in 46 games this season. The 29-year-old has won two of his last three starts. He was named the game's first star.

Jaroslav Halak allowed three goals on 23 shots in Sunday's 4-0 loss to Vancouver.

The game was scoreless after the first period but the Canucks beat Halak with three goals on 10 shots in the second frame. The 29-year-old has dropped two of his last three starts. His record falls to 32-13-0 with a 2.49 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage.
Feb 22 - 9:49 PM

Jaroslav Halak won his 32nd game of the season on Thursday night by stopping 25 of 27 shots against the high powered Predators offense.

Halak rebounded from an unstable performance against the Rangers on Monday where he allowed six goals. The veteran put that loss behind him and won his fifth game in the past six. He improves to 32-12 this season with a .911 save percentage and 2.47 goals against average.

Jaroslav Halak will get the start versus the Nashville Predators on Thursday night.

Halak comes in with a 32-12-0 record with 107 goals against in 43 starts this season. His last 10 starts versus Nashville since 2011, he's 5-2-3 with two shutouts and 15 goals against. However, he's been steadily slipping since his hot start over the first two months. Over his last 27 starts, he's allowed 73 goals.
Feb 19 - 5:49 PM

Jaroslav Halak stopped 36 shots but was the losing goalie as the Islanders were edged 6-5 by the visiting New York Rangers Monday night.

Halak was trying to tie a franchise record with his 32nd win of the season but instead took his 12th loss. His goals-against average took a hit, as well, and is now up to 2.48. His save percentage is now .910. He had a 1.33 GAA and .964 save percentage in three previous games against the Rangers this season, all wins. If you have Halak in your fantasy league, just hang on and stay confident in him. He won't have many nights when he's allowing six goals.

Jaroslav Halak will play between the pipes against the New York Rangers on Monday.

Halak can tie a franchise record by earning his 32nd win of the 2014-15 campaign. Given that there's roughly two months left in the regular season, Halak should be able to break that record as long as he can stay healthy. He has a 1.33 GAA and .964 save percentage in three contests against the Rangers this season.
Feb 16 - 10:57 AM

Jaroslav Halak kicked aside 34 shots in the Islanders’ 6-3 win over Columbus on Saturday night.

Halak did not start off the game on a high note, giving up two goals on 11 first-period shots, and one more on seven in the second period. He was perfect in the third period, however, making 19 saves. With a 2.40 goals-against average and .912 save percentage, it’s not like Halak has needed to carry the Islanders this season. Fantasy owners will enjoy those 31 wins — and five in a row — though.
Feb 14 - 9:54 PM

Jaroslav Halak will get the start in goal Saturday for the Islanders.

Halak has been terrific for the Islanders this season as he just collected his 30th win of the season against 11 losses. He has a 2.39 GAA and a .912 save percentage going into the game against Columbus Saturday.
Feb 14 - 11:18 AM

Though the first two were shaky wins where he stopped 24/28, the past two have been impressive, with 66 stops on 70 shots.
