The thirty four year-old goalie made 24 saves Friday night to blank the Stars 3-0. Giguere's impressive performance against Dallas was his second straight solid start in net for the Avalanche.

Meanwhile, Giguere has taken advantage of his latest opportunity to play while the struggling Varlamov sits. In his start prior to shuting out the Stars, Gigure stopped 17 of the 18 shots he faced in a tough 1-0 loss to Minnesota. Make no mistake, Varlamov is clearly the goalie of the future in Colorodo. However, the youthful Avs have played above expectations to this point and as long as they stay in contention in the Western Conference, coach Joe Sacco is likely to stick with the goalie that gives his team the best chance to win. At least for the time being, it seems like that guy is Giguere.
Giguere is currently owned in just 10 percent of Yahoo! leagues. If you are a Varlamov owner or are in need of some help in goal, you might want to consider taking a flyer on Giguere as it appears the savvy veteran still has something left in the tank.
