Avs' Varlamov Ends Season With 28-Save Win

News: Semyon Varlamov stopped 28 of 30 shots in Saturday's win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: And that's all she wrote. Semyon Varlamov finishes the season strong, winning two straight games and stopping 68 of 72 shots in that span. While the Avalanche may have missed the playoffs, the 26-year-old goalie put together a strong season, posting a 28-20-8 record with a .921 save percentage and 2.56 GAA. His reliability and consistency will make him a strong fantasy option in the cage once again next season.

Avs' Varlamov In Net For Finale

News: Semyon Varlamov will be in the crease for Saturday's season finale against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Though backup goalie Reto Berra's 41-save shutout of the Jets on Thursday was surely impressive, coach Patrick Roy announced earlier in the week his intention to use Semyon Varlamov in the finale, so expect him to stay committed to that plan. Varlamov was superb in his own right his last time out Tuesday against the Predators, stopping 40 of 42 shots, and it was versus these same Blackhawks that the netminder submitted one of the best goalie performances of the season, a 54-save shutout back on Jan. 6.

Varlamov's 40 Stops Carry Avs

News: Semyon Varlamov turned away 40 of 42 Nashville shot attempts Tuesday in a 3-2 victory.
Analysis: Varly's play has been unreliable of late, as he'd given up three goals in five of his last six starts coming into Tuesday's action, but he delivered a big-time game against one of the league's better teams. It's been a tough year for him and the Avs, but with a save mark north of .920 as the season comes to a close, Semyon Varlamov's primed to help Colorado turn things around next year.

Semyon Varlamov

Avs Go With Varlamov On Tuesday

News: Semyon Varlamov is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Preds.
Analysis: Assuming no injuries down the stretch, coach Patrick Roy relayed Monday that the team then plans to turn to Reto Berra on Thursday against the Jets, before Semyon Varlamov starts the team's season finale against Chicago on Saturday. Tuesday's foe, the Preds, hold the No. 3 playoff seed in the West, but have lost two straight contests.

Avs' Varlamov Allows Three Goals In Loss

News: Semyon Varlamov gave up three goals on 26 shots in Saturday's loss to Los Angeles.
Analysis: While it wasn't the best night for Semyon Varlamov, he didn't get much offensive support, as the Avalanche managed just 10 shots on goal. It was the second straight loss for Varlamov, who falls to 26-20-8 on the season. With the Avs now officially eliminated from playoff contention, Varlamov, who owns a solid .920 save percentage, could be rested in these final few outings.

Semyon Varlamov, G, COL Avs' Varlamov To Sit Until Saturday

Semyon Varlamov

Avs' Varlamov To Sit Until Saturday

News: Semyon Varlamov will make his next start in goal Saturday in Los Angeles, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Coach Patrick Roy will give the first two starts of the Avs' three-game road trip that begins Wednesday to backup goalie Reto Berra, who has seen scarce work this season behind Semyon Varlamov, and in a couple instances, Calvin Pickard. When he hasn't been slowed by groin injuries, Varlamov has just about been an iron man for the Avalanche, and he's beginning to show some chinks in the armor. He's given up exactly three goals in four of his last five starts, while taking a loss to the lowly Oilers in the only start in that stretch where he yielded two tallies. His save percentage stills sits at a robust .921 for the season, but with the Avalanche all but eliminated from the playoff race at this point, it makes sense for the team to rest Varlamov a little more often.

Semyon Varlamov, G, COL Avs' Varlamov Loses Again To Edmonton

Semyon Varlamov

Avs' Varlamov Loses Again To Edmonton

News: Despite making 32 saves Monday, Semyon Varlamov was beaten by the Oilers for the second time in six days in a 4-1 loss. He allowed two goals while the other two were empty-net tallies.
Analysis: Varly has now lost four of his last five starts, including the aforementioned two to the lowly Oilers. After winning the Central Division last year, the last-place Avs won't be making the playoffs this season, so look for coach Patrick Roy to give Reto Berra a few more looks in the last six games.

Semyon Varlamov, G, COL

Semyon Varlamov

Avs Go With Varlamov On Monday

News: Semyon Varlamov is slated to start Monday's game against the Oilers, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Semyon Varlamov, who stopped 35 of 38 shots in Saturday's win over the Sabres, will look to rebound Monday from last Wednesday's rough outing against the Oilers, in which he was pulled after giving up three goals on seven shots. Beyond Monday, coach Patrick Roy indicated that the Avs plan to turn to Reto Berra on Wednesday at San Jose.

Avs' Varlamov Gets Back On Track With 35-Save Win

News: Semyon Varlamov stopped 35 of 38 shots in Saturday's win over Buffalo.
Analysis: A great bounce-back effort from Semyon Varlamov, who had surrendered nine goals in his previous three outings. The 26-year-old advances to 26-18-8 on the season with a .920 save percentage and 2.58 GAA. He's won seven of his last nine games played and has played a whopping 53 games this season, so keep him rolling for these final games down the stretch.

Semyon Varlamov

Avs' Varlamov To Draw Start Saturday

News: Semyon Varlamov will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Sabres, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Semyon Varlamov was given a rare rest Thursday against the Canucks, and though backup Reto Berra was able to lead the Avs back to the win column in impressive fashion, coach Patrick Roy will turn the net back to his No. 1 goalie. While Varlamov has scuffled of late with no wins and exactly three goals allowed in each of his last three games, a matchup with by far the league's worst scoring attack in the Sabres should help the goalie get back on track.

3/26/2015

Semyon Varlamov, G, COL Avs' Varlamov No Longer Starting Thursday

Semyon Varlamov

Avs' Varlamov No Longer Starting Thursday

News: Though coach Patrick Roy previously indicated earlier in the week that Semyon Varlamov would start Thursday against the Canucks, Reto Berra will instead receive the nod for the Avalanche, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: After Semyon Varlamov was pulled early in Wednesday's loss to the Oilers upon surrendering three goals on seven shots, Roy said he would "think about" whether he'd stick with the plan to give the goalie another turn Thursday. With Roy evidently changing his mind, Varlamov will earn a rest that was probably long overdue, as he's started 28 of the Avs' last 29 games in goal. Wednesday's loss almost certainly ends the Avs' playoff hopes, so it's possible that Roy could rest Varlamov with even more frequency over the final few contests.

Avs' Varlamov Struggles In Loss To Edmonton

News: Semyon Varlamov pulled after giving up three goals on seven shots against Edmonton on Wednesday.
Analysis: Semyon Varlamov only lasted 9:36 in net, giving up three goals on seven shots, before being replaced by Reto Berra in a 4-3 loss in Edmonton on Wednesday. This is the third consecutive game the Colorado net minder has allowed three goals, all three resulting in an Avalanche loss.

Semyon Varlamov

Avs' Varlamov To Start Both Ends Of Back-To-Back

News: Semyon Varlamov will start the Avs' games Wednesday in Edmonton and Thursday in Vancouver, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: The Avalanche suffered a huge setback to their fleeting playoff hopes with a loss Monday to the Flames, so coach Patrick Roy will continue to ride his No. 1 goaltender for at least the next two games as the Avalanche look to chase down several teams for the final wild-card spot. Semyon Varlamov is the main reason the team still remains on the fringes of contention, as he reeled off six straight wins while surrendering only seven goals to begin March before losing his last two outings.

Semyon Varlamov

Avs' Varlamov Set To Play Wednesday

News: Semyon Varlamov will be between the pipes for Wednesday's game against the Oilers, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: After winning six straight games while yielding only seven goals during that span, Semyon Varlamov has fallen back to earth a bit, taking loss in his last two turns to the Ducks and Flames. He still played fairly well in both games, so it remains worthwhile to keep rolling him, particularly against the dregs of the league like the Oilers, who are 2-5-3 over their last 10 contests.

Semyon Varlamov

Avs' Varlamov Loses To Flames

News: Semyon Varlamov was mediocre Monday, giving up three goals on 26 shots in a 3-2 loss to the Flames.
Analysis: Granted, the Flames have been great lately and are tough at home, but this was the second loss in a row for Varly after rattling off six straight wins. He allowed just seven total goals during the win streak, but six in the last two games, so it looks like he could be trending in the wrong direction at the moment.

3/22/2015

Semyon Varlamov, G, COL

Semyon Varlamov

Avs Roll With Varlamov

News: Semyon Varlamov is in line to start Monday's game against the Flames.
Analysis: Semyon Varlamov will look to bounce back Monday after his six-game winning streak was snapped in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Ducks. Beyond Varlamov's slated start on Monday, coach Patrick Roy relayed Sunday that the Avs have yet to determine their goaltending plans for the team's upcoming back-to-back set, Wednesday against the Oilers and Thursday against the Canucks.

Semyon Varlamov

OT Loss For Avs' Varlamov

News: Semyon Varlamov was sensational in an overtime loss Friday, stopping 37 of 40 shots.
Analysis: The overtime loss snaps a six-game winning streak for the Russian netminder, who has been thriving of late. Semyon Varlamov has now allowed a very stingy 10 goals over the last seven contests, and figures to keep racking up the saves as coach Patrick Roy has made it abundantly clear that he plans on rolling with Varly on a near-nightly basis.

3/21/2015

Semyon Varlamov, G, COL Avs' Varlamov Confirmed In Goal Friday

Semyon Varlamov

Avs' Varlamov Confirmed In Goal Friday

News: Semyon Varlamov has been confirmed as the starter in goal for Friday's tilt with the Ducks, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: The Avalanche still remain on the fringe of the Western Conference playoff race, but Semyon Varlamov's work since the calendar flipped to March might be the only thing still keeping the team in the conversation at all. Varlamov cruised to a 5-2 win Thursday night against the Coyotes, claiming his season-best sixth straight victory. He's allowed only seven goals during the winning streak, making him an appealing lineup choice against any opponent for now.

Semyon Varlamov, G, COL Avs' Varlamov Likely Starting Friday

Semyon Varlamov

Avs' Varlamov Likely Starting Friday

News: Semyon Varlamov is expected to start Friday's game against the Ducks.
Analysis: Semyon Varlamov will be in search of his seventh consecutive win, after stopping 28 of 30 shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Coyotes. The opponent will be much tougher Friday night, but the Avs finally seem to have their act together, though it may be too late in the season to really matter.

Varlamov, Avs Roll Over Arizona

News: Semyon Varlamov cruised to his sixth consecutive win Thursday, stopping 28 of 30 in a 5-2 road victory over the Coyotes.
Analysis: The Coyotes aren't exactly strong competition, but you won't hear Semyon Varlamov's fantasy owners complaining. Varly's looked positively stud-like during his winning streak, which spans the month of March to this point, as he's only given up seven goals over this six-game run. Thursday's .933 is actually the worst save percentage he's posted in March. Spiffy work.

Avs' Varlamov To Get Nod Thursday

News: Semyon Varlamov will be between the pipes for Thursday's game against the Coyotes, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Semyon Varlamov is in the midst of one of his best stretches of the season, having reeled off five consecutive wins while posting a 1.00 GAA and .968 save percentage. With the Coyotes owning one of the league's weakest attacks and resembling nothing close to a competitive squad at the moment, Varlamov makes for an easy activation.

Avs' Varlamov Shuts Down Flames

News: Semyon Varlamov made 29 saves on 31 shots in Saturday's win over the Flames.
Analysis: That's five straight wins for Semyon Varlamov, who has only allowed five goals in that stretch. He's on fire right now. With an impressive .922 save percentage and a 24-17-7 record on the season, Varlamov should be rolled out with confidence.

Semyon Varlamov

Avs Roll With Varlamov On Saturday

News: Semyon Varlamov is going to be in the net for Saturday's game against the Flames, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Semyon Varlamov shook off a one-game absence due to groin injury to remain hot in his return to the net Thursday against the Devils, stopping 23 of 24 shots before prevailing in the shootout. He enters play Saturday with a four-game winning streak, during which he's surrendered a total of three goals. It's worthwhile to keep him active Saturday, even against a Flames squad that has been scoring goals at a steady clip of late.

Semyon Varlamov, G, COL Avs' Varlamov Wins Fourth Straight

Semyon Varlamov

Avs' Varlamov Wins Fourth Straight

News: Semyon Varlamov had been questionable for Thursday's game due to a groin ailment, but he slammed the door on the Devils anyway, stopping 23 of 24 and earning a shootout win.
Analysis: That's four consecutive wins for Varly, and he's given up just three goals in that span, helping to pull his stats back toward last season's sparkling levels. The injury is still kind of concerning, since he's already missed two periods of time this year with a groin issue, and it seems like something that's dogging him in the long term. But hey, when he's playing, he's a very good roll.

3/12/2015

Semyon Varlamov, G, COL

Semyon Varlamov

Avs' Varlamov Will Start Thursday

News: Coach Patrick Roy confirmed that Semyon Varlamov (groin) will play Thursday against the Devils.
Analysis: Moreover, Roy said that Semyon Varlamov is "100 percent" recovered from the minor groin injury, a surprising development after he wasn't permitted to skate Wednesday. He was back on the ice for a workout Thursday morning and didn't seem to be facing any limitations, so it looks like he'll be a safe option for fantasy owners to count on against a low-scoring Devils squad. Even so, Varlamov has been bothered by groin issues all season, and with his workload beginning to mount while the Avs are beginning to lose ground in the playoff race, it wouldn't be a surprise if he was rested more frequently down the stretch.
