Jaroslav Halak has been confirmed as the Islanders' starter for Saturday against Boston.

Halak has surrendered four goals in each of his last two outings, but he has picked up points in the standings for his team on both occasions (1-0-1). He has posted an 8-6-1 record with a 2.99 goals-against average and a .903 save percentage this season.

The Islanders were down by two goals with less than five minutes remaining in regulation, but they managed to tie the game. Unfortunately for them, they couldn't complete the comeback, as Matt Hunwick scored the game-winner for the Penguins. Halak has now given up four goals in back-to-back starts. He has an 8-6-1 record with a 2.99 goals-against-average and a .903 save percentage this season.

Jaroslav Halak stopped 39 of 43 shots in Monday's 5-4 shootout win over the Florida Panthers.

The Isles trailed 1-0 and 3-2 in this one, but they managed to overcome those deficits by winning in the shootout (Mathew Barzal scored the game-winner). Two of the four goals Halak allowed were scored while the Panthers were on the power play (Florida fired 10 shots on goal while on the man-advantage). The win improves Halak's record to 8-6-0 on the season. He'll go into his next appearance with a 2.92 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage. Halak is nothing more than a low-end number two goalie in standard fantasy leagues.

Halak has allowed an average of four goals in each of his last four starts. The veteran falls to 5-5 this season with a 3.14 goals against average and .896 save percentage. He is not worthy of a fantasy roster spot at this time.
Nov 19 - 8:47 PM

Halak has surrendered nine goals on 48 shots in his last two outings (0-2-0) and this will mark his first start since Nov. 10. Thomas Greiss was in goal for a 5-3 win over Tampa Bay on Saturday, so he will get the night off.

This was an ugly performance from top to bottom for the Islanders. They were outscored 3-0 in the first period and they only managed to fire 14 shots on Dallas' net the entire night. The loss drops Halak's record to 5-4-0 on the season. He'll enter his next appearance with a 3.06 goals-against-average and a .898 save percentage. Halak is nothing more than a mediocre number two goalie in most fantasy leagues.
Nov 10 - 11:35 PM

Jaroslav Halak will start for the Islanders on Friday.

It's Halak's first start since he allowed four goals on just 19 shots against Washington on Nov. 2. He has a 5-3-0 record, 2.83 GAA, and .906 save percentage in nine games this season.
Nov 10 - 1:51 PM

Jaroslav Halak allowed four goals on just 19 shots in a 4-3 loss to the Washington Capitals on Thursday night.

Halak simply didn't have it tonight, letting his team down when they performed well in front of him. The loss breaks his four-game winning streak and his record currently sits at 5-3-0 with a 2.83 goals against average and a .906 save percentage. He could be very frustrating to own because of his tendency to run hot and cold.
