Antti Niemi is slated to get the call against Winnipeg on Tuesday night.

He was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate, so he is expected to make his first start since Feb. 7 when he took a 3-1 loss in a match versus Toronto. Niemi's last win came on Jan. 17, as Kari Lehtonen has seen the majority of the action of late.
Feb 14 - 3:00 PM

Antti Niemi allowed three goals on 34 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Niemi gave up a goal in each of the three periods and his team didn't score enough to keep up with the Maple Leafs. The loss drops Niemi's record to 10-8-4 in 2016-17. He'll enter his next appearance with a 3.20 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage.
Feb 7 - 10:50 PM

Antti Niemi will start Tuesday's game versus Toronto.

"Start" should be emphasized because he has been pulled in each of his past three appearances. Niemi has allowed 11 goals on 36 shots for a .694 save percentage over that span. He has a 10-7-4 record this season with a 3.20 GAA and a .900 save percentage.
Feb 7 - 5:50 PM

Antti Niemi was pulled for a third straight game on Thursday night.

He was yanked after the first period when he permitted two goals on five shots. Niemi has allowed 11 goals on 36 shots in his past three starts. This could lead to more playing time for Kari Lehtonen, who was solid in relief in a 4-3 win over Buffalo on Thursday.
Jan 27 - 9:41 AM

Antti Niemi will get the nod on Thursday.

Niemi was the first goalie off the ice, which is usually a good indicator of who the starter will be. Kari Lehtonen started in Dallas' previous three games, so it would also make some sense to get Niemi in a game before the All-Star break.
Jan 26 - 12:16 PM

Antti Niemi was pulled in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the New York Rangers.

Niemi and the Stars entered the third period with a 7-3 lead, but they watched as New York quickly cut the lead to 7-6. After the Rangers' sixth goal, Stars head coach Lindy Ruff decided it was time for him to yank Niemi for Kari Lehtonen. The Stars nearly allowed the Rangers to tie the game on several occasions, but they were ultimately able to hang on. Niemi, who still got the win, has a 10-7-4 record with a 3.16 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage in 2016-17.
Jan 17 - 10:18 PM

Antti Niemi will be between the pipes for Tuesday's game against the New York Rangers.

Niemi's been terrible on the road this season, as he has a 1-4-2 record with an ugly 4.21 goals-against-average and an .873 save percentage. That's something for fantasy owners to keep in mind heading into tonight's game at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Jan 17 - 6:38 PM

Antti Niemi will face the Wild on Saturday night.

Believe it or not Niemi has been great at home. He's 8-3-2 with a .932 save percentage and with 28 goals against across 15 games. Considering what his seasonal numbers look like, we'd believe in what Dallas is able to do for him in Texas.
Jan 14 - 11:57 AM

Antti Niemi stopped 31 of 33 shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Niemi gave up two goals in the first period, but he was able to shut the door the rest of the way. He has a 9-7-4 record with a 2.84 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage. Fantasy GMs should do everything in their power to avoid having either of Dallas' goaltenders on their roster.
Jan 13 - 12:55 AM

Antti Niemi will start Thursday night.

Niemi was the first goalie off the ice, which is usually a good indicator of who the starter will be. He's appeared in Dallas' previous three games.
Jan 12 - 12:17 PM

Antti Niemi blocked 36 of 38 shots in a 2-0 loss to the Anaheim Ducks Tuesday night.

Niemi got the start Tuesday night following two road games in which his counterpart Kari Lehtonen had to be pulled early each time. This was his first full game since his overtime loss to St Louis on December 20th. Niemi withstood pressure from the Ducks by blocking 36 of 38 shots and maintaining a .947 save percentage. This loss will be reviewed against Lehtonen’s recent performance to decide who gets the start in net for the Stars’ upcoming home games against Detroit on Thursday and Minnesota on Saturday.
Jan 11 - 1:06 AM

Antti Niemi will get the start in Tuesday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Niemi entered last night's game in relief of Kari Lehtonen. He stopped the only shot he faced in the game against Kings. Niemi has an 8-6-4 record with a 2.93 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage.
Jan 10 - 6:27 PM

Antti Niemi gave up three goals on only 20 shots Saturday night as the Dallas Stars dropped a 3-1 contest to the Florida Panthers.

Niemi was pulled after 17 minutes and this loss stopped a three-game winning streak for the Stars. Niemi's record falls to 7-5-4 with the loss. He also has a 3.00 goals-against average and a .908 save percentage. Kari Lehtonen finished off the night with 18 saves on 18 shots.
Jan 1 - 12:07 AM

The Stars will have Antti Niemi against the Panthers in their crease on Saturday.

Niemi has been excellent at home this season. He's posted a 7-2-2 with a .936 save percentage and a 1.95 GAA in 13 games. Surprising and true all in the same sentence.
