Anaheim – Well, if it wasn’t sort of official before, it is now: Jean-Sebastien Giguere is the No. 1 goalie of the Avs now.
Giguere will start tonight against Anaheim, a night after playing against the Kings.
Jiggy simply has stolen the top job away from Semyon Varlamov with his play. It’s a tricky situation with Varlamov going forward. He was supposed to be the man in goal for the Avs, who gave up a first and second round pick to get him.
Will it hurt his confidence down the road? Or will it make him want to work harder, to prove he’s worthy when he gets his next chance? It will be an interesting story either way.
