Kings Release Garon

News: The Kings released Mathieu Garon from his professional tryout, Lisa Dillman of the LA Times reports.
Analysis: This move comes as no surprise, as Ben Scrivens has played well in the preseason, so he'll get the opportunity to back up Jonathan Quick at the start of the season. At 35 years old, Mathieu Garon's best bet is probably to try to sign on as a backup with an injury plagued team at some point during the season.

Garon Rebounds After Tough Debut With Kings

News: Mathieu Garon stopped all 11 shots he faced in his lone period of action Tuesday.
Analysis: Mathieu Garon's in camp competing for a backup role to starter Jonathan Quick. He allowed five goals in his first action of the preseason Sunday so this was a nice bounceback effort.

Kings' Bring in Garon To Compete for Backup Spot

News: Mathieu Garon, who is in camp on a tryout basis with the Kings, "is going to get every opportunity" to earn the backup netminder role according to head coach Darryl Sutter, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Mathieu Garon is competing with Ben Scrivens for backup duties to starter Jonathan Quick.

Bolts' Garon: 19 Saves In Loss

News: Mathieu Garon made 19 saves in Sunday's 3-1 loss to Buffalo.
Analysis: He's not starter material and he's struggling behind the porous Bolts' D. Avoid him at this point.

Lightning's Garon Starting In Net Sunday

News: Mathieu Garon will start in net Sunday against the Sabres, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Mathieu Garon is just 5-8 with a 2.89 GAA and an .899 save percentage in 17 games this season.

Bolts' Garon To Face Sabres On Sunday

News: Mathieu Garon is expected to start Sunday at Buffalo, the Tampa Bay Times' Damian Cristodero reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop has been struggling between the pipes for the Lightning ever since they acquired him from Ottawa at the trade deadline, so it looks like Mathieu Garon will get a chance to start working his way back into the starting mix.

Bolts' Garon Appears In Relief

News: Mathieu Garon made 15 saves in relief Saturday, but took the loss in a 6-5 overtime defeat at the hands of the Capitals.
Analysis: The Bolts were down 3-0 when they made the goalie switch and then roared back to knot the game at fives. Unfortunately, a power-play time in overtime netted the Caps a goal. Ben Bishop is the starter, but both goalies will get some time behind the Bolts' porous D. And that will do neither any good at all.

Lightning's Garon Expected To Start Sunday

News: Mathieu Garon is expected to start in goal against the Sabres on Sunday, the Tampa Bay Times' Damian Cristodero reports.
Analysis: Mathieu Garon will be the odd man out once Anders Lindback (ankle) returns, but Lindback will not be ready for Sunday's game. It could very well be Garon's final start of the season.

Lightning's Garon Will Not Be Re-Signed

News: Mathieu Garon, set to become an unrestricted free agent after the season, will not be re-signed now that the Lightning have acquired Ben Bishop, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Fellow goalie Anders Lindback is out with a high ankle sprain, so Mathieu Garon should stay up with the Lightning for a while longer, despite his lack of a future with the team. Garon will likely be the odd man out once Lindback returns, though Lindback has no timetable at the moment.

Lightning Turn To Garon Tuesday

News: Mathieu Garon is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Panthers, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: The start will be the third straight for Mathieu Garon, who has notched wins in his last two turns to lift his record 5-8, with a 2.90 GAA and .901 save percentage.

Bolts' Garon Expected To Start Tuesday

News: Mathieu Garon could get the start Tuesday against Florida, according to FS Florida. It would be his first start against the Panthers this season.
Analysis: He has two straight wins -- one against Buffalo and the other over New Jersey. Florida isn't exactly pounding out the wins, so he's as good an activation as any.

Bolts' Garon: 21 Saves In SO Win

News: Mathieu Garon made 21 saves Friday in a 5-4 shootout win over New Jersey.
Analysis: It's just his fifth win of the season. He's not much of a fantasy option, but will continue to get starts while Anders Lindback is out ... unless the Bolts make a move to pickup a goalie before the deadline.

Lightning's Garon Starts Friday

News: Mathieu Garon will get the start Friday against the Devils.
Analysis: While Mathieu Garon's opponent, Martin Brodeur, has been hot lately, the Devils don't score much, and Garon has faced an average of only 15.6 shots over his last five games. Garon plays much better at home to boot, so he could be a sneaky start Friday night.

Bolts' Garon: 13 Saves In 2-1 Win

News: Mathieu Garon made 13 saves in a 2-1 win over Buffalo on Tuesday night.
Analysis: He has struggled lately, but the team played strong D in front of him. And, of course, the Sabres aren't exactly fear-inducing.

Lightning Turn To Garon Tuesday

News: Mathieu Garon will start Tuesday's game against the Sabres, the Lightning's official site reports.
Analysis: Mathieu Garon, who has gone 3-1-0 with a 1.50 GAA and .944 save percentage over his past four games against Sabres, returns to the Lightning net Tuesday after giving way to Cedrick Desjardins in Sunday's loss to the Jets.

Bolts' Garon Yanked In Loss

News: Mathieu Garon was yanked in the first period of Saturday's game after allowing three goals on the first 11 shots. He was relieved by Cedrick Desjardins.
Analysis: Mathieu Garon has been spotty at best this season and this is yet another poor outing. Desjardins was strong in relief and may see playing time over Garon as a result.

Lightning's Garon Starting Saturday

News: Mathieu Garon will start against Ottawa on Saturday, SenatorsExtra.com reports.
Analysis: Mathieu Garon has performed admirably this year, stopping 91 percent of the shots he's seen, but this might not be the best game to start him. Tampa is 5-9-0 on the road, while Ottawa is 10-2-3 at home.

Lightning's Garon Could Be Busy With Lindback Out

News: It remains unknown if Mathieu Garon will play in both of Tampa Bay's back-to-back games this weekend against Ottawa (Saturday) and Winnipeg (Sunday), Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Mathieu Garon, who is 3-8 with a 2.79 GAA and .910 save percentage this season, will likely see ample playing time going forward due to Anders Lindback's ankle injury. Cedrick Desjardins is slated to back up Garon for the time being.

Bolts' Garon: 15 Saves In Loss

News: Mathieu Garon was pulled in the second period of Wednesday's game only to return to the net partway through the third after Anders Lindback suffered an injury.
Analysis: He finished with 15 saves and three goals against. He's a sketchy play, but he's likely in line for more starts if Lindback's injury is serious.

Lightning's Garon Starts Wednesday

News: Mathieu Garon is slated to start Wednesday's game against the Maple Leafs, Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Lightning's Garon To Start Wednesday

News: Mathieu Garon is on track to start Wednesday's game against the Maple Leafs, Erik Erlendnsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Mathieu Garon gave up just one goal his last time out, but he will be tested Wednesday by a Toronto squad that has scored at least four goals in four of its seven games this month.

Bolts' Garon: 21 Saves In Win

News: Mathieu Garon made 21 saves in a 4-1 win over Carolina on Saturday night.
Analysis: It's his first win since Feb. 23 and just his third on the season. Anders Lindback is still the go-to guy in the Bolts mesh tent; Mathieu Garon remains his handcuff.

Lightning's Garon To Start Saturday

Lightning's Garon Back In Mix

News: Mathieu Garon (lower body) is expected to be available as a backup Tuesday against the Panthers, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Either way, Anders Lindback is slated to start Tuesday's game, with an official announcement regarding Mathieu Garon's activation yet to occur.

Lightning's Garon Ready

News: Mathieu Garon (lower body) says he is good to go, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
