Antii Niemi stopped 29 of 32 shots Saturday night in the 3-2 loss of the Dallas Stars to the Chicago Blackhawks.

That is notable because Niemi entered the contest with a season-long save percentage of .899, so his .906 was about average. Even with his modest save percentage, however, Niemi managed to enter the night with a 3-1-1 record. Giving up three goals also kept him near his middle mark for that stat; Niemi has given up 3.35 goals on average so far in 2016.
