Niemi will start Monday vs. the Red Wings.

Niemi allowed three goals on 28 shots in the Canadiens win over the Penguins on Saturday. Niemi won his first start of the season, filling in for Carey Price who was out with the flu. Price was back on the ice for Monday’s morning skate, but it looks like the Habs will stick with Niemi versus the Red Wings. Detroit is 0-3-2 and are averaging just 2.20 goals per game so far.

Niemi will start Saturday vs. the Penguins.

With Carey Price out with the flu, Niemi will make his first start of 2018-19. Niemi struggled the early part of 2017-18, but was strong in a Canadiens uniform, going 7-5-4 with a 2.46 GAA and .929 SV% in 17 starts and two relief appearances. As solid as he was with Montreal last year, he is a terrible option tonight vs. the Penguins.

The Canadiens have re-signed Antti Niemi to a one-year deal worth $950K.

Following a disastrous start to the 2017-18 season with the Penguins and Panthers, Niemi settled in in Montreal. The veteran netminder went 7-5-4 with a 2.46 GAA, .929 SV% and one shutout in 17 starts and two relief appearances with the Canadiens. He will likely be back as the Habs’ primary backup behind Carey Price next season.
