Niemi doesn't know if he's starting Sharks' playoff opener

Antti Niemi said on Tuesday that he still doesn’t know if he’s going to be the man between the pipes for Thursday’s playoff opener against Los Angeles.

There could be a storm brewing for the San Jose Sharks

Seriously, the San Jose Sharks are way too hot right now. Currently, the Sharks are on a six-game win streak and are tied with the Anaheim Ducks as leaders of the Pacific Division.

Niemi finding his game at the right time for Sharks

Sharks 1, Rangers 0

Box Score Tough luck loss. Give credit to Antti Niemi and his 41 saves. Came up huge in the face of pressure during the first period.

The Rangers outplayed San Jose for most of, if not all of the first and came out firing 20 shots on Niemi right out of the gate. Brassard...

How to Beat the Goalie: Niemi

(Jason O. Watson-US Presswire) Since winning the Stanley Cup in 2010 with the Chicago Blackhawks, Antti Niemi's stock (and play) has risen high. Niemi, now the starting goalie with the San Jose Sharks, hasn't had the same success in the playoffs with San Jose, but isn't entirely his fault, but rather the players in front of him.
