Avalanche goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere will look to improve to 8-0 Sunday night as he and the Avs play the Vancouver .
Just as I thought, the Avalanche will go back to Giguere after he led them to a win on Friday and Semyon Varlamov allowed eight goals on Thursday. Giguere will look to move to 8-0-0 on the season when he takes on the Avalanche tonight. Of his seven wins, five of them have come on the road along with a 1.73 GAA and .945 SV%.
Giguere stopped 27 of 28 shots in a win over the WIld on Friday. It was a nice bounce-back outing after giving up five goals in his previous start. Giguere is clearly the number-2 in Colorado but is always a strong spot-start option as he is currently holding a 1.62 GAA and .949 SV% in seven starts. Giggy should be a strong play tonight after the Avs were walloped yesterday and take on the Flames tonight.
Giguere had his first tough outing of the year, allowing five goals on 23 shots in a loss to the Blues on November 14. He is 5-1-0 with a 1.73 GAA and .947 SV% with a fairly tough matchup on Friday vs. the WIld.
Giguere stopped 30 of 32 shots in a win over the Flames last Friday. The win moved him to 5-0-0 with a 1.00 GAA and .970 SV% on the season. Giggy has a tough matchup when the Avalanche take on the Blues in St. Louis tonight.
Giguere turned aside 29 of 30 shots in a victory over the Canadiens on Saturday. The win moved Giggy to 4-0-0 with a 0.75 GAA and .977 SV%. He is playing extremely well, but won't see as many starts as his owners like as long as Semyon Varlamov continues to play great as well. Giguere is a must-start vs. the Flames on Friday.
Giguere was originally scheduled to start on Friday, but Semyon Varlamov will now start. Giguere will face his hometown team (Montreal) in Colorado. It will be his fourth start of the season, in his first three starts he has been excellent. He has the league's best GAA (0.67) and SV% (.981) and he is also tied for the most shutouts with two. His shutouts have come against two great teams in Boston and Pittsburgh (each average 3+ G/PG)

He has a solid matchup vs. Dallas and is worth a start whenever he gets the call.
J.S. Giguere to start Friday's game in Phoenix #Avs
Giguere allowed three goals on 32 shots in a win over the Blues on Sunday. He will face the Coyotes tomorrow in what will be the Avs second last game of the season. It is a good matchup but if you have to play Giguere in the finals... How did you make the finals?
Giguere is 2-0 after ripping his teammates for losing focus at the end of a lost season. He owns a 2.64 GAA in limited action this year, and has a relatively tough matchup tonight again the surprising Bob and the Blue Jackets.
Giguere stopped all 12 shots that he faced in a relief effort last night. He will face the Canucks for the second time this season tomorrow. In the first start he allowed three goals in a losing effort. It is a tough matchup, I would look elsewhere.
