Sabres To Start Johnson On Friday

News: Chad Johnson will start Friday's game against the Senators.
Analysis: After giving way to Anders Lindback in Tuesday's 3-0 loss to Tampa Bay, Chad Johnson is in line to make his first start for last-place Buffalo since being acquired from the Islanders on Monday.

Sabres Trade Neuvirth For Islanders' Johnson

News: The Sabres acquired Chad Johnson and a 2016 third-round draft pick from the Islanders on Monday in exchange for Michal Neuvirth, WGR550.com reports.
Analysis: The tank job is on full blast in Buffalo, and poolies shouldn't touch either Chad Johnson or Anders Lindback with a 50-foot pole. Johnson has played in 19 games this season and sports a 8-8-1 record with a .889 save percentage and 3.08 GAA on a very good Islanders team. Those numbers will almost assuredly get worse with the Sabres, but at least Johnson will get his chance to play. Going forward, a timeshare with Lindback is expected, since both goalies are considered below average.

Chad Johnson, G, BUF Isles Tap Johnson For Saturday Start

Chad Johnson

Isles Tap Johnson For Saturday Start

News: Chad Johnson will be in the net for Saturday's game against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: After Jaroslav Halak received the nod a night earlier against Calgary, Chad Johnson will draw the cushier matchup of the back-to-back against the Hurricanes, who sport the second-worst record in the Eastern Conference. After struggling for much of the earlier portion of the season during his spot starts, Johnson has righted the ship in February. In his four turns this month, he's gone 2-1-1 with a 1.48 GAA and .953 save percentage.

Isles' Johnson Pelted With Pucks In Loss

News: Chad Johnson made 36 saves in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Two of the goals came on the power play. The Canes were all over the Isles in the game and Chad Johnson made some great saves. But he wasn't a miracle worker.

Isles' Johnson Stymies Coyotes

News: Chad Johnson turned away 27 of 28 pucks to claim a 5-1 victory over the Coyotes on Tuesday.
Analysis: After looking like one of the league's weaker backup options heading into February, Chad Johnson has restored some faith by turning out impressive efforts his last four times out. In those four starts, he's gone 2-1-1 with a 1.48 GAA and .953 save percentage. Considering the collection of talent surrounding him, Johnson is starting to look like a strong streaming option on most occasions he receives an opportunity to start.

Chad Johnson, G, BUF Isles Turn To Johnson On Tuesday

Chad Johnson

Isles Turn To Johnson On Tuesday

News: Chad Johnson will start Tuesday's game against the Coyotes.
Analysis: While the Isles plan to roll with the same group of skaters as they rolled out in Sunday's 4-0 loss to the Canucks, Chad Johnson will replace Jaroslav Halak in net for the team. He's allowed five goals over three starts in the month of February.

2/22/2015

Chad Johnson, G, BUF

Chad Johnson

Isles' Johnson Falls in Shootout

News: Chad Johnson allowed two goals on 27 shots before falling 3-2 in a shootout to Washington on Friday.
Analysis: A fine road effort from the Isles' backup, who was making his 17th appearance of the season to allow starter Jaroslav Halak to prepare for Sunday's tilt against Vancouver. However, with an ugly .885 save percentage and 3.08 GAA in 17 appearances this year, the only crease time he'll likely see the rest of the way is in back-to-back scenarios where Halak requires rest.

2/21/2015

Chad Johnson, G, BUF

Chad Johnson

Islanders' Johnson Starting Saturday

News: Chad Johnson will start Saturday's game in Washington, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: With the Islanders playing the first game of a back-to-back, Chad Johnson gets a second start in the last three games. Jaroslav Halak will likely be back between the pipes for Sunday's game against Vancouver.

Chad Johnson, G, BUF

Chad Johnson

Johnson Stops 37 As Isles Roll Over Carolina

News: Chad Johnson turned aside 37 of 38 shots Tuesday in a 4-1 victory over Carolina.
Analysis: A strong effort for Chad Johnson, who was making his first start in 10 days. It's been a rough year for the Isles' backup, as this win just pulled him to an even 7-7, and his GAA and save mark are still lingering in ugly territory.

2/17/2015

Chad Johnson, G, BUF

Chad Johnson

Isles' Johnson Confirmed For Tuesday

News: Coach Jack Capuano confirmed that Chad Johnson would start Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Regular netminder Jaroslav Halak surrendered six goals Monday against the Rangers to see his winning streak end at six games, opening the door for Chad Johnson to pick up a rare turn. The Hurricanes rank near the bottom of the league in most offensive categories, but have been much more competitive of late and did find the net six times in a win over the Senators on Monday. Despite his favorable team context, Johnson is only 6-7-0 with a 3.33 GAA on the season, making him somewhat of a risky streaming choice.

2/17/2015

Chad Johnson, G, BUF

Chad Johnson

Isles Could Go With Johnson On Tuesday

News: Chad Johnson is a candidate to start Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes, the Islanders' official site reports.
Analysis: With Jaroslav Halak having allowed six goals on 42 shots in Monday's loss to the Rangers, there's a decent chance that the Isles will turn to Chad Johnson on Tuesday for the first time since Feb.7, when the team fell to Boston, 2-1.

2/8/2015

Chad Johnson, G, BUF

Chad Johnson

Isles' Johnson Solid In Loss To Bruins

News: Chad Johnson fell to the Bruins on Saturday, stopping 34 of 36 shots in the 2-1 loss.
Analysis: The 34 saves marked a season high for Chad Johnson, who made a number of impressive saves to keep the game tight throughout. Johnson hadn't delivered many quality outings in place of regular netminder Jaroslav Halak this season, so Saturday's showing should at least give the Islanders a little more confidence going forward in his viability as a backup.

2/7/2015

Chad Johnson, G, BUF Isles Johnson To Face Former Mates Saturday

Chad Johnson

Isles Johnson To Face Former Mates Saturday

News: Chad Johnson will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Bruins.
Analysis: It's Chad Johnson's second start of the season against his former team, whom he defeated with a 30-save effort in a 3-2 win back on Oct. 23. That has gone down as one of Johnson's best performances of the season thus far, as he's otherwise been unreliable while seeing limited action behind Jaroslav Halak. Johnson has posted sub-.900 save percentages in seven consecutive stats, making him a shaky fantasy option Saturday.

Chad Johnson

Isles' Johnson Gags Rare Start

News: Chad Johnson was terrible Saturday, giving up four goals on just 19 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: Making just his 12th start of the season after coach Jack Capuano opted to give regular starter Jaroslav Halak extra rest, Chad Johnson didn't do much to give his team a chance to win in this one. As long as Halak is healthy, he'll continue to get the lion's share of the starts on Long Island, further limiting Johnson's value. After Saturday's disappointing showing, Johnson now owns a paltry .865 save percentage and 3.43 GAA, numbers that scream "avoid at all costs!"

Chad Johnson, G, BUF

Chad Johnson

Isles' Johnson Gets Rare Starting Nod Saturday

News: Chad Johnson will man the net for the Islanders in Saturday's game against the Red Wings.
Analysis: Coach Jack Capuano has opted to give a breather to Jaroslav Halak for Saturday's matinee, opening the door for Chad Johnson to make his 12th start of the season. He's seen his usage trend downward as the Islanders have ascended to the top of the Metro Division, as it will be only his third appearance in January. With a poor 3.38 GAA and .870 save percentage on the season, Johnson won't be campaigning for additional duties, even if he happens to turn in a competent outing Saturday.

Chad Johnson, G, BUF

Chad Johnson

Isles' Johnson Wins Sixth Of Season

News: Chad Johnson turned away 16 of 18 shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: The win brought Chad Johnson's overall record for the season over the .500 case, but that can mostly be attributed to the Isles' strong offense rather than the goalie's own doing. He was rarely tested in this one, and then watched as his mates besieged Sergei Bobrovsky for three goals in a seven-minute span in the second period to put the game out of reach. Johnson's horrid ratios (3.40 GAA, .869 save percentage) make him worth using only if you're gunning for a cheap win against a weaker opponent.

Chad Johnson, G, BUF

Chad Johnson

Isles' Johnson Takes Net Saturday

News: Chad Johnson will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: With Jaroslav Halak taking the net for Friday's win over the Devils, it's not overly surprising that the backup will get the call against Columbus. He's been one of the poor No. 2 options in the league this season, going 5-5 with a 3.54 GAA and .867 save percentage. Outside of prospecting for a win, there's little reason to use Chad Johnson on a given night.

Chad Johnson, G, BUF

Chad Johnson

Isles' Johnson Will Backup Saturday

News: Though it appeared he would be in line for Saturday's start versus the Sabres, Chad Johnson will serve as the backup to Kevin Poulin.
Analysis: After Jaroslav Halak (lower body) was placed on IR prior to the Isles' gameday skate, the presumption was that as Halak's top backup, Chad Johnson would assume the No. 1 post on the depth chart. However, Johnson's play has been rather porous all season, prompting coach Jack Capuano to give a shot to Poulin, who has been solid at AHL Bridgeport prior to Saturday's call-up. Halak's absence isn't expected to extend beyond Saturday's game, so there probably won't be any window for either Johnson or Poulin to enjoy much sustained run as the team's starter in any event.

Chad Johnson

Johnson Likely To Start For The Islanders

News: Chad Johnson will likely start Saturday for the Islanders versus the Sabres, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: The Isles placed Jaroslav Halak on injured reserve Saturday, leaving Chad Johnson to presumably take over as the team's lead goalie until further notice. The move from Boston to Long Island has proven unkind for Johnson thus far, as he owns a horrid 3.54 GAA and .867 save percentage over 11 outings thus far. While Saturday's matchup against the Sabres would seemingly appear to be a favorable one, Johnson probably won't be much more than a low-end starting option while he retains a starting job.

Chad Johnson

Johnson, Isles Sunk By Habs

News: Chad Johnson took his third consecutive loss Tuesday, giving up three goals on 21 shots against Montreal.
Analysis: Generally a reliable second-string netminder, Chad Johnson has been stunningly bad as Jaroslav Halak's backup this year -- particularly recently, as he's posted five straight games with a save mark of .867 or worse and has allowed a painful 21 goals in that span.

12/23/2014

Chad Johnson, G, BUF

Chad Johnson

Islanders' Johnson Will Start Versus Montreal

News: Chad Johnson will get the start Tuesday against the Canadiens, Marc Antoine Godin of La Presse reports.
Analysis: Chad Johnson is coming off of a string of rough performances, having allowed at least four goals in each of his last four starts. On the season, he's 5-4-0 with a 3.59 GAA and .868 save percentage. With Carey Price making the start in the opposite net, Johnson doesn't look like a particularly attractive goalie play Tuesday.

Johnson, Isles Sunk By Four-Goal Third Period

News: Chad Johnson allowed five goals on 30 shots -- four of them in the third period -- in Tuesday's loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Through two periods, it looked like the Isles had a win in the bag, as they led 4-1 and Chad Johnson had stopped 14 of 15. However, the Wild poured it on in the third period, particularly later in the frame, when Johnson allowed three goals in just over four minutes. He's now given up a miserable 29 goals in his last seven starts -- that's more than four per game.

12/9/2014

Chad Johnson, G, BUF

Chad Johnson

Isles Turn To Johnson

News: Chad Johnson has been named a late starter for Tuesday's game in Minnesota, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: It sounds as if regular starter Jaroslav Halak suffered a minor injury, so Chad Johnson gets the start in what will be his 10th appearance of the season.

11/29/2014

Chad Johnson, G, BUF

Chad Johnson

Isles To Go With Johnson

News: Chad Johnson will be in the crease Friday against the Capitals.
Analysis: Chad Johnson will spell the red-hot Jaroslav Halak in goal, but only because the Islanders are playing the first game of a back-to-back set. The move from Boston to Long Island hasn't proven overly kind for Johnson, despite the 5-2 record he carries into Friday's contest. His 3.33 GAA and .876 save percentage rank 38th and 42nd, respectively, among the 42 qualifying goaltenders.

11/28/2014

Chad Johnson, G, BUF

Chad Johnson

Isles' Johnson Takes Loss Friday

News: Chad Johnson gave up four goals on 26 shots in Friday's loss to the Capitals.
Analysis: With the way the red-hot Jaroslav Halak is playing, Chad Johnson only got the start Friday because the team plays again Saturday. While his 5-3-0 record on the season is respectable, Johnson's .873 save percentage and 3.42 GAA could definitely use some improvement. Friday marked the fifth time in his past six starts Johnson has allowed at least four goals. While he may be struggling this season, Johnson is still somewhat of a decent fantasy option whenever Halak gets the night off.
