Bruins' Svedberg Makes 29 Saves In Win

News: Niklas Svedberg made 29 save on 31 shots in Saturday's win over the Devils.
Analysis: A strong outing for the 25-year-old, who started the game after it was ruled Tuukka Rask would be out with illness. Niklas Svedberg is now 6-5-0 on the season with a .917 save percentage and 2.39 GAA. He doesn't see much ation, but he's a reliable backup option behind Rask. If Rask isn't good to go Saturday, expect Svedberg to get the call against Arizona.

Bruins' Svedberg To Start For Ill Rask

News: Niklas Svedberg led the Bruins on the ice for pregame warmups and will make the start Friday against the Devils.
Analysis: The Bruins officially ruled Tuukka Rask out for Friday's game due to an illness, so Niklas Svedberg will step in for his first outing since Feb. 10 against the Stars. That start didn't go too smoothly, as he was pulled after allowing three goals on 10 shots in the game's first 20 minutes. Still, with the Devils' 28th-ranked scoring attack now without Jaromir Jagr, who was traded to Florida on Thursday, Svedberg should make for a dependable streaming option in leagues with daily roster moves.

Bruins' Svedberg Lasts Just One Period Tuesday

News: Niklas Svedberg was yanked at the first intermission Tuesday after allowing three goals on 10 shots.
Analysis: Tuukka Rask came in and stopped 20 of 21, but it wasn't enough to turn things around. On the bright side for Niklas Svedberg, it was Rask who was unfairly stuck with the loss. He'll probably take a seat on the bench for another while after affording Rask just one period of rest.

Bruins' Svedberg Draws Tuesday Start

News: Niklas Svedberg will start Tuesday's game against the Stars.
Analysis: Niklas Svedberg, who will be making his 11th start of the season for the Bruins, will give Tuukka Rask his first breather since Jan. 8, a contest in which Svedberg turned away all 14 shots that he faced in a 3-0 win over New Jersey.

Bruins Likely To Turn To Svedberg On Tuesday

News: Niklas Svedberg appears on track to start Tuesday's game against the Stars, Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Niklas Svedberg's last start with the big club was back on Jan. 8, but it looks like he'll give Tuukka Rask -- who has started 11 straight games for Boston -- a breather on Tuesday.

Svedberg Rejoins Bruins

News: The Bruins have recalled Niklas Svedberg from his conditioning loan with AHL Providence, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Niklas Svedberg went 3-1-0 during his stint with Providence, compiling a 2.76 GAA and .911 save percentage in that span. Svedberg -- who last saw game action with the big club on Jan. 8 -- has appeared in 12 games for the Bruins this season, recording a 5-5-0 record, with a 2.22 GAA and .922 save percentage. Svedberg will return to serve as the Bruins' No. 2 goalie, an assignment that will draw him the occasional spot start, with backup Tuukka Rask having started 11 straight games for the team.

Bruins' Svedberg Sent On Conditioning Assignment

News: Niklas Svedberg was set to AHL Providence for a conditioning assignment Friday, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: The Bruins likely just want Niklas Svedberg to get some game action, as he hasn't played in a game since Jan. 8, with Tuukka Rask dominating the workload. Top goaltending prospect Malcolm Subban was recalled from Providence for the corresponding move, and while Svedberg will likely rejoin the Bruins soon, Subban's presence may eventually make the Swedish netminder expendable. Both Svedberg and Subban have been impressive this season, while Rask has been fantastic in January, following a disappointing first three months.

Easy Shutout For Bruins' Svedberg

News: Niklas Svedberg needed to make just 14 saves while coasting to a 3-0 silencing of the Devils on Thursday.
Analysis: New Jersey's offense certainly lived up to its awful reputation against Niklas Svedberg and the Bruins, who had exactly three times as many shots on goal (42) as the Devils managed. Nonetheless, it's a nice bounce-back outing for Svedberg, who had been pulled in his last start back on Dec. 27. Truly, with only a few exceptions, he's outplayed Tuukka Rask this year.

Bruins' Svedberg Gets Call Thursday

News: Niklas Svedberg led the Bruins onto the ice for pregame warmups and will thus receive the start Thursday against the Devils, Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Rather than turn to Tuukka Rask for the second night in a row, coach Claude Julien chose to go with the backup, who will make his 12th appearance of the season. Despite his limited usage, Niklas Svedberg has been mostly reliable when called upon, posting a 2.46 GAA and .918 save percentage. Against a Devils team that attempts the second-fewest shots per game in the league, Svedberg could be worth a roll of the dice in daily formats.

Bruins' Svedberg Pulled Early

News: Niklas Svedberg surrendered three goals on 15 shots before being pulled in the second period of Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Niklas Svedberg played fairly well in a rare start last month against Columbus, but the Bruins' attempt to duplicate that success did not go well. Tuuka Rask replaced Svedberg and had a similarly rough night, allowing three goals of his own.

Bruins Start Svedberg

News: Niklas Svedberg will start in net for Boston on Saturday against Columbus.
Analysis: Niklas Svedberg will square off against Curtis McElhinney on Saturday, with Bruins' No. 1 netminder Tuukka Rask thus a candidate to start Monday night's game against Detroit.

Bruins' Svedberg Expected To Start Saturday

News: Niklas Svedberg is expected to be in the crease for Saturday's match with the Blue Jackets, Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Niklas Svedberg stopped 21 of 24 shots in a shootout victory over the Blue Jackets last month, so it appears coach Claude Julien will stick with him in the rematch in the hope of similar results. The Blue Jackets aren't exactly a fearsome matchup to begin with, but he'll catch even more of a break with their top netminder, Sergei Bobrovsky, unavailable with an illness. The unimpressive Curtis McElhinney will instead get the nod for Columbus, creating a strong opportunity for the Bruins to provide plenty of goal support for Svedberg.

Bruins' Svedberg Stops 35 In Win

News: Niklas Svedberg allowed two goals on 37 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Wild.
Analysis: Niklas Svedberg improved to 4-4-0 on the year with the victory, and has played his best hockey of the year in his last two starts. He's worth keeping an eye on if Tuukka Rask ever goes down with an injury, but he's definitely still the backup for now.

Bruins' Svedberg To Start Wednesday

News: Niklas Svedberg led the Bruins on the ice for pregame warmups Wednesday night, and will start in goal against the Wild.
Analysis: Niklas Svedberg will relieve regular starter Tuukka Rask, who will rest for the second night of a back-to-back set. The 25-year-old netminder owns a 2.28 GAA and .922 save percentage on the season.

Bruins' Svedberg Takes Tough-Luck Loss

News: Niklas Svedberg put a stop to 33 of 34 shots Tuesday against the Kings, but opposing goalie Jonathan Quick was one better, sending Boston to a 2-1 loss.
Analysis: Despite the loss, this is easily the best effort Niklas Svedberg's put forth since his Oct. 18 shutout of the Sabres. He'll continue to see spotty action behind Tuukka Rask.

Bruins To Start Svedberg On Tuesday

News: Niklas Svedberg will draw the start in goal Tuesday against the Kings, Curtis Zupke of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: With the Bruins opting to rest Tuukka Rask for the second game of the team's West Coast back-to-back, Niklas Svedberg will take his shot at downing Jonathan Quick and the Stanley Cup champs. The backup backstop owns a 3-3 record and 2.46 GAA over eight appearances on the season.

Bruins' Svedberg Shuts Down Jackets In Shootout

News: Niklas Svedberg made 21 saves in regulation before shutting down all seven Blue Jackets' shooters in the shootout Friday for his third win of the season.
Analysis: Not a bad outing for the Bruins' backup, who is now 3-3-0 on the season. When he gets called upon, which won't be often, Niklas Svedberg makes for a decent fantasy option in the crease. Tuukka Rask, who is the clear-cut starter in Boston, will return Saturday to play in the second half of the Bruins' back-to-back.

Bruins' Svedberg In Net Friday

News: Niklas Svedberg will start between the pipes Friday against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Niklas Svedberg will receive the first of the starts in back-to-back games for the Bruins, while Tuukka Rask will return Saturday. Svedberg carries a 2-3-0 record witha 2.41 GAA and .917 save percentage into the matchup.

Bruins' Svedberg Expected To Start Friday

News: Niklas Svedberg is expected to start in goal Friday against the Blue Jackets, Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: The Bruins plan to split the starts for their weekend back-to-back between Niklas Svedberg and regular No. 1 goalie Tuukka Rask, and it looks like Svedberg will be tasked with leading things off with the easier matchup of the two in Columbus. The Metro Division cellar dwellers are averaging 2.44 goals per game, good for 23rd in the NHL.

Bruins' Svedberg Gives Up Five In Defeat

News: Niklas Svedberg was touched up for five goals on 34 shots in Thursday's loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: The 25-year-old Swede had been excellent as Tuukka Rask's backup to start the year, but turned in easily his worst performance Thursday. The B's as a whole struggled in this one, though, so we'll give everyone a mulligan.

Bruins To Start Svedberg On Thursday

News: Niklas Svedberg led the Bruins onto the ice for pregame warmups and will receive the start in goal Thursday against the Canadiens, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports.
Analysis: With Tuukka Rask coming off a disastrous start Wednesday against the Maple Leafs and owning poor career numbers against the Canadiens (3-11-3, .902 save percentage in 18 games), coach Claude Julien decided to go with his backup for Thursday's match. Niklas Svedberg has been a more-than-adequate fill-in for the departed Chad Johnson as Boston's No. 2 goalie, as he enters the game with a 2-2 record, 1.87 GAA and .933 save percentage over six appearances this season.

Bruins' Svedberg Allows Two In Relief Effort

News: Niklas Svedberg came in in relief of Tuukka Rask during the second period of Wednesday's 6-1 loss to the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Rask was yanked near the beginning of the second period after allowing four goals, but the change was too little, too late for the Bruins. Niklas Svedberg surrendered two more goals on 15 shots, but should continue to be the backup moving forward.

Bruins' Svedberg Stops Just 13 In OT Win

News: Niklas Svedberg faced just 15 shots, stopping 13, during Thursday's 3-2 overtime win in Buffalo.
Analysis: This spot start turned out to be a much lower-effort affair than his last one, a week prior against the Isles, in which Niklas Svedberg was peppered with 38 shots. Despite the unimpressive save percentage he posted Thursday, Svedberg should remain a quality source of ratios and wins whenever he gets the chance to give Tuukka Rask some rest.

Bruins' Svedberg To Start Thursday

News: Niklas Svedberg will start Thursday's game against the Sabres, Amalie Benjamin of The Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Regular goaltender Tuukka Rask will get the night off after giving up four goals in his last start, so Niklas Svedberg will start for the fourth time this season Thursday. He has a very favorable matchup against a Buffalo squad that has lit the lamp just 10 times in 10 games.

Bruins' Svedberg Loses Battle Of Backups

News: Niklas Svedberg stopped 35 of 38 shots Thursday against the Islanders, but was narrowly outplayed by opposing netminder Chad Johnson in a 3-2 loss.
Analysis: Johnson occupied Niklas Svedberg's role as Tuukka Rask's backup highly effectively last year, and in defeating his replacement, Johnson got a measure of revenge for the Bruins cutting him loose in the offseason. However, Svedberg has been great for the B's so far, having posted save marks of at least .921 in all four of his appearances (three starts), so they won't be too filled with regret.
