“He played very well basically every time he’s been in the net for us this year,” Quenneville said. “He’s been consistent. He’s been solid, predictable, dependable. The guys played well in front of him the other night. He earned another start.”

He has faced Colorado twice before, once as a member of the Philadelphia Flyers in 2009 and once last season with the Anaheim Ducks.
