Look for Antti Niemi to get the start against the Wild Saturday night.

Despite the fact Niemi started and won Friday night against Vancouver, it is doubtful that coach Lindy Ruff would turn to rookie Jack Campbell even in a back-to-back game situation against a tough rival like Minnesota.
Nov 28 - 12:29 PM

Antti Niemi stopped 34 of 36 shots in Friday's 3-2 shootout win over the Vancouver Canucks.

Niemi also stopped all three shooters he faced in the shootout. The 32-year-old will get a lot more work now that Kari Lehtonen is out with a concussion. Niemi improves his overall record to 9-4-0 this season. He's worth adding in standard leagues.

Antti Niemi will face the Canucks on Friday.

With Kari Lehtonen expected to miss at least a week, Niemi is expected to get all the starts. However, Niemi has but a 8-4-0 record with a .907 save percentage and a 2.64 GAA. At least three pucks have beaten Niemi in eight of his 13 games thus far, suggesting you may wish to find a more favorable matchup.

Antti Niemi allowed five goals on 16 shots as the Stars fell to the Senators 7-4 Tuesday night.

It was a night to forget for Niemi. He didn't receive much help from his defense, as the Stars turned the puck over twice in their own zone, both leading to goals, before the end of the second period. Niemi was pulled in the second frame after allowing three goals on nine shots, but was forced to return early in the third due to a Kari Lehtonen injury. Niemi's record is now 8-4-0 with a 2.64 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage.

Antti Niemi will be in Dallas' crease for a second straight game on Tuesday when the Stars host Ottawa.

He has earned another start after he stopped all 22 shots he faced in a 3-0 win versus Buffalo on Saturday. Niemi has eight wins along with a .917 save percentage and a 2.41 goals-against average in 12 appearances this season.
Nov 24 - 3:59 PM

Antti Niemi made 22 saves in the Stars’ 3-0 win against the Sabres on Saturday night.

Niemi’s shutout is his second of the season. He has a 2.41 GAA and .917 SV%. He is tough to rely on because the Stars have two players splitting the net. Plus, Kari Lehtonen (2.34 GAA, .923 SV%) has actually been better.
Nov 21 - 11:56 PM

Antti Niemi was the first goaltender off the ice Saturday morning.

Nov 21 - 11:49 AM

Antti Niemi stopped 24 of 25 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

Only a Ryan O'Reilly power play goal found its way by Niemi. The 32-year-old picked up his first win of the month and snapped a personal two-game losing streak in the process. Niemi has a 7-3-0 record with a 2.63 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage this season. He was named the game's first star for his effort.
Nov 17 - 10:19 PM

Antti Niemi will face the Sabres on Tuesday.

Through 10 games this season, Niemi has gone 6-3-0 with 27 goals against and a paltry .907 save percentage. He's also seen at least three pucks beat him in each of his last six games, none of which ought to inspire much confidence.
Nov 17 - 6:39 PM

Antti Niemi will get the call for Dallas on Tuesday against Buffalo after he was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate.

It will mark his 10th start of the season, as he has shared time evenly with Kari Lehtonen (who has nine starts). Niemi has two losses against the Maple Leafs in his last two outings and he has allowed three goals or more in his past six appearances.
Nov 17 - 4:33 PM

Antti Niemi allowed three goals on 30 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Toronto.

Niemi's last two starts have come against Toronto and he's lost both of them. The Stars led 2-1 early in the third period, but were unable to hold on for the win. Niemi's record falls to 6-3-0. He has a 2.80 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage.
Nov 11 - 1:13 AM

Antti Niemi will be in the crease Tuesday night against Toronto.

It will mark his first start since last Monday when he stopped 22 of 26 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs. Kari Lehtonen has won his past three outings and he's played well in all of them. "I think both goaltenders have played a good amount. They've both had runs they've been on," said coach Lindy Ruff. "The schedule's getting busier now. We definitely have a plan, and we'll try to stick to it."
Nov 10 - 3:53 PM

Goalie Antti Niemi is 6-2-0 after he and the Dallas Stars dropped a 4-1 decision to the Maple Leafs in Toronto Wednesday night.

Niemi has enjoyed a solid season but the Leafs, generally a lamentable team, were very good on this night. Niemi blocked 22 of the 26 shots he faced. His goals-against average took a hit and is up to 2.77 from 2.61. His save percentage deteriorated to .908 from .915. He remains, of course, a solid fantasy option on a solid team. It was just an off night for all the Stars. It happens.
Nov 2 - 11:03 PM

Antti Niemi will get the start in Monday's game against Toronto.

Niemi has picked up a win in each of his last five decisions. He has a 6-1-0 record with a 2.61 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage this season. He is a great option in one day fantasy leagues.
