Chad Johnson will get the late start in Minnesota on Tuesday night.

Jaroslav Halak is being reported as out with an upper body injury, forcing the 28 year old back up into action. Johnson comes in sporting a dreadful .873 save percentage and 3.42 GAA in his nine games so far this season, which includes five goals against in his last three games.
Dec 9 - 7:42 PM

Chad Johnson stopped 22 of 26 shots in a 5-2 loss to Washington on Friday.

Johnson allowed two goals on just five shots in the first period. He's struggled mightily this season, making him one of the least desirable backups in the league from a fantasy perspective.
Nov 28 - 7:45 PM

Chad Johnson will start for the New York Islanders against the Washington Capitals.

Johnson won his last contest in a shootout, but he surrendered four goals on 30 shots in regulation time. He certainly hasn't been an ideal backup so far with his 3.33 GAA and .876 save percentage in eight contests.
Nov 28 - 4:16 PM

It was a wild night for Chad Johnson and the Islanders who beat the Penguins 5-4 in the shootout.

Johnson stopped 26-30 through the first 65 minutes and then 1-3 in the shootout in the victory. It was a wild game where each team received a fortunate bounce for a goal and each goalie allowed in at least one they want back, in the end it was Johnson who stood tallest.
Nov 21 - 10:05 PM

Chad Johnson will get the nod against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday.

Johnson has a 3.27 GAA and .878 save percentage in seven games. Given how strong the Penguins' offense has been this season, we're not filled with confidence in Johnson going into this contest.
Nov 21 - 12:42 PM

Chad Johnson gave up five goals in the Islanders’ 5-2 loss to the Lightning on Saturday night.

The Islanders hoped to be getting a steady backup, maybe even more than that, when they signed Johnson in the offseason. Instead, he has three games in which he’s given up five goals on his resume. Johnson sports a 3.27 goals-against average and .878 save percentage on the year. Jaroslav Halak is firmly entrenched as the number one.
Nov 15 - 10:08 PM

Chad Johnson turned away 28-29 and both of LA's shootout attempts to secure the 2-1 victory for the Islanders on Thursday night.

Johnson was straight up stellar, only getting beaten on Dwight King's slick tip-in early on in the first. The Islanders seemed to take it upon themselves to use this game as a measuring stick, and at least on this night they were full-fledged.
Nov 7 - 1:44 AM

Chad Johnson will start for the Islanders on Thursday at Los Angeles.

Jaroslav Halak was in goal for Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over Anaheim and he played well. The Islanders play again on Saturday in Arizona, so he'll probably be back in the crease for that game. Johnson has a 3-1-0 record to go with an .870 save percentage and a 3.46 GAA.
Nov 6 - 2:22 PM

It wasn't pretty for Chad Johnson in Denver on Thursday night, as he was beat five times on just 23 shots.

They weren't dispursed evenly either as Colorado had five in the first and just four in the second. Then again, they scored in each of those periods as well. Save for Marc-Andre Cliche's goal to make it 3-0 early in the second, the Avs earned each of their goals. Thus the woes for a team that is not good defensively. The Avs won 5-0.
Oct 30 - 11:52 PM

Chad Johnson will get the nod for the Islanders on Thursday versus Colorado.

He allowed five goals on 31 shots in his last outing, but he won 7-5 decision against Dallas. Johnson owns a 3-0-0 record with an .891 save percentage and a 3.00 goals-against average. Jaroslav Halak has lost his last three games, while allowing 11 goals against.
Oct 30 - 2:24 PM

Chad Johnson sticked aside 26 shots in the Islanders’ 7-5 win against the Stars on Saturday night.

Johnson is lucky he plays behind such a stellar offense. He gave up on goal in the first, three in the second and another in the third. Johnson was making his second straight start after winning in Boston, but it’s likely that Jaroslav Halak, who has been hot and cold, will draw the next start at home against Winnipeg on Tuesday.
Oct 25 - 10:13 PM

Chad Johnson is likely to get the start in goal for the Islanders on Saturday.

Johnson is 2-0 this season with a .918 save percentage and a 2.14 GAA. He started and defeated the Boston Bruins on Thursday and it looks like coach Jack Capuano will go back to him tonight against the Dallas Stars.
Oct 25 - 10:44 AM

Chad Johnson notched a win against his former team in Boston on Thursday night, making 30 saves in the Isles' 3-2 victory.

The Isles backup improves to 2-0 on the season with a .918 save percentage and 2.14 goals against average. Johnson was named the third star of the game for his solid effort.
Oct 23 - 10:15 PM

Chad Johnson will be between the pipes for the Islanders on Thursday night versus his ex-Boston teammates.

He appeared in 27 games with the Bruins last season, as Tuukka Rask's backup. New York starter Jaroslav Halak appears to be getting a breather after he was burned for five goals on 23 shots in Tuesday's loss to Toronto.
