Antti Niemi stopped 21 of 24 shots in Tuesday's 5-3 win over Winnipeg.

Niemi has a 19-9-5 record with a 2.44 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage this season. His stat line may not always be pretty, but he should continue to pile up wins going forward.

Jan 25 - 12:59 PM

Antti Niemi couldn't stop the Avalanche, falling 3-1 on Saturday night.

To be fair, he didn't get much help either. Though both shorthanded goals against needed to be stopped, no question. As it is, Niemi is now 1-3-1 over his last five games with 17 goals against. That ain't good enough, plain and simple.

Antti Niemi will get the start in goal Saturday night against Colorado.

Jan 17 - 1:31 AM

Look for Anti Niemi to start against his former club, the Sharks, Saturday night.
