Jean-Sebastien Giguere was credited with the victory but has had a rough season in Denver, along with the rest of his teammates. (Updated 4/27/13).
Originally signed to provide a veteran backup presence for Semyon Varlamov last season, Jean-Sebastien Giguere wound up seeing much more ice time than expected. When Varlamov faltered early, Giguere was the No. 1 guy for several stretches and played in 32 games (30 starts). Unfortunately, Jiggy didnt play from May 15 to June 7, as the club rode Varlamov down the stretch, but he still finished with his best goals-against-average (2.28) and save percentage (.918) since his 2007-08 season in Anaheim. Barring any injuries to Varlamov or another meltdown by the Russian netminder Giguere is expected to return to his backup role for the upcoming season. However, hes a good insurance policy for anyone who winds up with Varlamov in this years draft. (Updated 8/14/12)
