He has a 5-2-1 record with a 2.39 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage this season. If he keeps playing this well, he could steal more starts from Semyon Varlamov.

Calvin Pickard gave up five goals on 33 shots Tuesday night as the Colorado Avalanche lost 5-3 to the Nashville Predators.

This was the second time in the past four games for Pickard that he failed to crack the .900 mark.

Pickard has been uneven and hard to handicap with a pair of greater-than-.930 games interspersed with his two poor performances.

Colorado will finish the month with a game against the Canucks on Saturday and another against the Predators on Tuesday.
