Apr. 5 8:00 AM PT9:00 AM MT10:00 AM CT11:00 AM ET15:00 GMT23:00 8:00 AM MST10:00 AM EST19:00 UAE11:00 ETNaN:� BRT - Niemi stopped 24 shots to improve to 17-6-4 against the Coyotes in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win.
Analysis: Niemi had lost his previous three starts and still has a sub-.900 save percentage on the season, so he should never really be a fantasy option.
Mar. 13 9:31 AM PT10:31 AM MT11:31 AM CT12:31 PM ET16:31 GMT0:31 9:31 AM MST11:31 AM EST20:31 UAE12:31 ETNaN:� BRT - Niemi replaced starter Kari Lehtonen, who allowed three goals on eight shots, and finished with 16 saves for Dallas in Sunday's 5-1 loss to San Jose.
Analysis: This was the second straight game Niemi replaced Lehtonen. The backup goalie has a 4.44 GAA and .833 save percenntage in his last nine games.
Jan. 27 7:51 AM PT8:51 AM MT9:51 AM CT10:51 AM ET15:51 GMT23:51 8:51 AM MST10:51 AM EST19:51 UAE10:51 ETNaN:� BRT - Niemi was pulled Thursday a first period in which he gave up two goals on five shots against Buffalo.
Analysis: Coach Lindy Ruff did say Niemi was sick, but this still doesn't bode well for his future. He was pulled for a third straight start, and this was his first one in nine days. Kari Lehtonen could be emerging as the No. 1 goalie after having split time with Niemi.
Jan. 17 7:04 PM PT8:04 PM MT9:04 PM CT10:04 PM ET3:04 GMT11:04 8:04 PM MST10:04 PM EST7:04 UAE (+1)22:04 ETNaN:� BRT - Niemi made 22 saves on 28 shots for Dallas before being replaced in the third period of a 7-6 win over the Rangers on Tuesday.
Analysis: Niemi's start on Saturday lasted just over four minutes, as he was pulled after permitting goals on all three shots he faced against Minnesota.
Jan. 15 9:19 AM PT10:19 AM MT11:19 AM CT12:19 PM ET17:19 GMT1:19 10:19 AM MST12:19 PM EST21:19 UAE12:19 ETNaN:� BRT - Niemi's start on Saturday lasted just over four minutes, as he was pulled after permitting goals on all four shots he faced against Minnesota.
Analysis: Niemi had appeared to turn a corner after starting Dallas' previous two games and stopping 67 of 71 shots. This latest effort is further proof, though, that's he's awfully hard to trust as a fantasy goaltender.
Jan. 13 8:25 AM PT9:25 AM MT10:25 AM CT11:25 AM ET16:25 GMT0:25 9:25 AM MST11:25 AM EST20:25 UAE11:25 ETNaN:� BRT - Niemi came up with 31 saves to help the Stars to Thursday's 5-2 victory over Detroit.
Analysis: Though Dallas' goaltending situation has routinely been a revolving door over the past two seasons, Niemi seems to have the current edge on Kari Lehtonen after following up a 36-save effort in Tuesday's 2-0 loss at Anaheim with this performance. He now owns a 2.25 GAA and a .933 save percentage over his last seven starts.
Jan. 11 5:35 AM PT6:35 AM MT7:35 AM CT8:35 AM ET13:35 GMT21:35 6:35 AM MST8:35 AM EST17:35 UAE8:35 ETNaN:� BRT - Niemi stopped 36 shots for the Stars in a 2-0 loss to Anaheim on Tuesday.
Analysis: He has a 3.51 goals-against average while losing his last three starts.
Jan. 8 7:30 AM PT8:30 AM MT9:30 AM CT10:30 AM ET15:30 GMT23:30 8:30 AM MST10:30 AM EST19:30 UAE10:30 ETNaN:� BRT - Kari Lehtonen stopped 11 of 14 shots before he was replaced by Niemi midway through Saturday's game. Niemi then allowed the winning goal with 1:54 remaining as the Stars lost 4-3 to the Blues.
Analysis: Niemi is 0-2-1 with a 3.86 GAA and an .855 save percentage in his last four appearances.
Dec. 17 12:53 PM PT1:53 PM MT2:53 PM CT3:53 PM ET20:53 GMT4:53 1:53 PM MST3:53 PM EST0:53 UAE (+1)15:53 ETNaN:� BRT - Niemi made 31 saves Saturday as the Stars won 3-1 to end the Flyers' 10-game win streak.
Analysis: He has a 1.35 GAA and .959 save percentage over his last three starts.
Dec. 16 8:07 AM PT9:07 AM MT10:07 AM CT11:07 AM ET16:07 GMT0:07 9:07 AM MST11:07 AM EST20:07 UAE11:07 ETNaN:� BRT - Niemi stopped 28 of 29 shots Thursday but it wasn't enough as the Stars lost 2-0 to the Rangers.

Analysis: Niemi improved to 6-1-1 with a 1.99 goals-against average at home, compared to 0-2-2 with a 5.07 GAA on the road. The Stars kicked off a five-game homestand Tuesday.
Dec. 1 7:09 PM PT8:09 PM MT9:09 PM CT10:09 PM ET3:09 GMT11:09 8:09 PM MST10:09 PM EST7:09 UAE (+1)22:09 ETNaN:� BRT - Niemi struggled again Thursday, allowing five goals on 39 shots in a 6-2 loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: He gave up four goals on 31 shots in an overtime loss Monday.
Nov. 26 9:01 AM PT10:01 AM MT11:01 AM CT12:01 PM ET17:01 GMT1:01 10:01 AM MST12:01 PM EST21:01 UAE12:01 ETNaN:� BRT - Niemi played well again Friday when he stopped 30 shots in a 2-1 win over the Canucks.
Analysis: Niemi has gone 2-0-1 with a 1.65 goals-against average in his last three starts.
Nov. 16 9:52 AM PT10:52 AM MT11:52 AM CT12:52 PM ET17:52 GMT1:52 10:52 AM MST12:52 PM EST21:52 UAE12:52 ETNaN:� BRT - Niemi made 31 saves in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Devils.
Analysis: Niemi got his first start since Nov. 5 against Chicago after Kari Lehtonen had started three straight. It appears the two will continue to split time in net.
Nov. 1 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 - Niemi allowed a tying power-play goal with 16 seconds left in the third period and a goal 46 seconds into overtime in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: He's lost his last two starts behind a 3.62 GAA.
Oct. 26 7:31 AM PT8:31 AM MT9:31 AM CT10:31 AM ET14:31 GMT22:31 7:31 AM MST9:31 AM EST18:31 UAE10:31 ETNaN:� BRT - Niemi was sharp in Dallas' 3-2 win over Winnipeg on Tuesday, turning aside 28 of 30 shots.
Analysis: Niemi will continue to split work with Kari Lehtonen, though this performance could earn him the nod again when the Stars visit Winnipeg on Thursday. Lehtonen started three straight games after Niemi permitted five goals in 27 minutes in the Stars' loss to Colorado on Oct. 15.
Oct. 14 9:40 AM PT10:40 AM MT11:40 AM CT12:40 PM ET16:40 GMT0:40 9:40 AM MST11:40 AM EST20:40 UAE12:40 ET13:40 BRT - Niemi's 33 saves helped the Stars open their season with a 4-2 victory over visiting Anaheim on Thursday.
Analysis: Dallas' goaltending situation was a revolving door between Niemi and Kari Lehtonen last season, making neither an overly desirable fantasy choice. Having gotten the nod in the opener and then playing well, Niemi appears to be the more preferable option right now.
