James Reimer will face the Penguins on Wednesday night. Reimer has easily been the Leafs best goalie this season. He’s 7-4-4 with just 32 goals against in 16 games this season and boasts a .935 save percentage
Matt Murray blocked 25 shots in the Penguins’ 3-1 win against the Wild on Saturday night.
On the road, no less. Murray has posted back-to-back wins. In three games, he has stopped 71 of 76 shots against him.
Chad Johnson made 30 saves in the Sabres’ 6-3 win against the Bruins on Saturday night.
Johnson allowed three goals in a row to give the Bruins a 3-1 lead early in the third period, but then the Sabres awakened. He has given up six goals total over his past four starts. Johnson has a 2.34 GAA and .918 SV%
Washington goaltender Braden Holtby continued his outstanding season Monday night by registering a shutout in a 2-0 triumph over the Sabres in Buffalo. Holtby is enjoying an all-star type of season. He made 31 saves Monday en route to his second shutout of 2015-16 and the 22nd of his career. Holtby has some magnificent numbers, including a 23-4-1 overall record, a .935 save percentage and a 1.86 goals-against average.
Corey Schneider is currently the hardest working starting goalie in the NHL. He leads the league in starts with 30, which ties him with Corey Crawford and Pekka Rinne. There is no reason to believe he won’t be in net for number 31 when the Devils face off against the Hurricanes Tuesday night. Schneider is having a strong season posting a 2.17 goals against average and a .924 save percentage
Andrew Hammond will get the nod for Ottawa on Wednesday against New Jersey. Craig Anderson was beaten for seven goals on 37 shots in Tuesday’s loss to Boston, so Hammond will get the nod in the second game of the back-to-back situation. He has lost his previous two starts since returning from a concussion, but he did play fairly well in both contests
Henrik Lundqvist has been pulled in three of his last six starts. Lundqvist allowed five goals on 35 shots on Monday before being yanked midway through the third period. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault defended Lundqvist by saying, “Tonight was nothing about Henrik. They were teeing it up. At 5-1, I thought it was better to give him a break. He gave us a chance. As a team, we need to respond better.” Lundqvist is still an elite goaltender and it shouldn’t be too much longer before he and the Rangers bounce back
Lightning goalie Ben Bishop notched 31 saves in a 4-3 shootout loss to the visiting Montreal Canadiens Monday night. Bishop’s record is now 15-11-3. He is now 10-1-3 in his career against Montreal. His goals-against average this season is 2.03 and his save percentage is .926.
Steve Mason allowed four goals on 37 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Ducks on Sunday. Mason is having yet another inconsistent season and is very hard to trust night in and night out for the Flyers.
San Jose goalie Martin Jones kicked aside twenty out of twenty five shots against, in the Sharks 6-3 loss to the Colorado Avalanche. Colorado’s power-play was running on all cylinders, lighting up the red lamp four times out of six chances. With the loss, Jones record now stands at 15-11-2 this season, with a .912 save percentage and a 2.49 goals against average.
