Apr. 6 6:13 PM PT7:13 PM MT8:13 PM CT9:13 PM ET1:13 GMT9:13 6:13 PM MST8:13 PM EST5:13 UAE (+1)21:13 ETNaN:� BRT - Halak was outstanding again, stopping 29 shots for his second shutout of the season in Thursday's 3-0 win in Carolina.

Analysis: In four starts since he was recalled from the minors, Halak is 4-0-0 with a .945 save percentage. Had the Islanders not buried him in the minors for almost three months, it's likely they would be a playoff team since his replacement - J.F. Berube - proved unworthy of the job.

"Any time you win a game it always feels great, but I think it's more special right now after being called up and playing my first game in the late stages of the season. I'm happy that I'm back. I'm just going to try to help the guys win any games or get points when I play."
Mar. 23 8:34 AM PT9:34 AM MT10:34 AM CT11:34 AM ET15:34 GMT23:34 8:34 AM MST10:34 AM EST19:34 UAE11:34 ETNaN:� BRT - The New York Islanders have recalled Halak for their push for a playoff spot.

Halak was 6-8-5 with a 3.23 goals-against average in 21 games this season before being sent down to Bridgeport of the AHL after clearing waivers. The 31-year-old was 17-7-3 with a 2.15 GAA in 27 games with the Sound Tigers.
Dec. 30 9:31 AM PT10:31 AM MT11:31 AM CT12:31 PM ET17:31 GMT1:31 10:31 AM MST12:31 PM EST21:31 UAE12:31 ETNaN:� BRT - Halak cleared waivers Saturday and was sent to Bridgeport of the American Hockey League.
Analysis: Halak is 6-8-5 with a 3.23 goals-against average and .904 save percentage in 20 games this season for the Islanders, who are in last place in the Metropolitan Division. The 31-year-old Slovak counts $4.5 million against the salary cap and has one year left on his contract after this season.
Dec. 13 7:16 PM PT8:16 PM MT9:16 PM CT10:16 PM ET3:16 GMT11:16 8:16 PM MST10:16 PM EST7:16 UAE (+1)22:16 ETNaN:� BRT - Halak stopped 34 shots but lost 4-2 to the Capitals on Tuesday.

With an overall GAA of 3.07 and a .908 save percentage, the 31-year-old has been a bit hard to trust.
Dec. 7 11:41 AM PT12:41 PM MT1:41 PM CT2:41 PM ET19:41 GMT3:41 12:41 PM MST2:41 PM EST23:41 UAE14:41 ETNaN:� BRT - Halak shined on Tuesday with 36 saves in a 4-2 win over the Rangers.

Analysis: It was a nice bounce-back performance by Halak, who allowed at least three goals in each game during an 0-3-2 stretch for a 3.60 GAA since his last win Nov. 7. He could be back in net Sunday against Detroit, but Thomas Greiss has won his last two starts.
Nov. 15 8:45 AM PT9:45 AM MT10:45 AM CT11:45 AM ET16:45 GMT0:45 9:45 AM MST11:45 AM EST20:45 UAE11:45 ETNaN:� BRT - Halak's struggles continued in Monday's start against Tampa Bay, in which he allowed four goals on 31 shots to take the loss.
Analysis: Halak now has lost three straight starts and owns a below-average 4.08 goals-against average over the skid. The 31-year-old's 3.09 GAA so far this season would stand as the highest of his 11-year NHL career.
