Description: Bruins goalie Niklas Svedberg stopped all seven shootout attempts he faced against the Blue Jackets on Friday.
Insight: Unfortunately for fantasy owners who streamed Svedberg on Friday, those don't count as saves. The stops in the shootout helpd Svedberg get the victory, but in regulation and overtime, Svedberg stopped just 25-of-28 shots.

Description: Bruins goalie Niklas Svedberg played poorly during Thursday's loss to Montreal.
Insight: He stopped only 29-of-34 shots on goal. Svedberg gave Tukka Rask the night off, but moving forward, is not a relevant option.

Description: Bruins goalie Niklas Svedberg will start on Thursday against the Islanders.
Insight: Svedberg is 1-1 with a 0.91 GAA and .969 save percentage this season. New York will also go with backup goalie in Chad Johnson.

Description: Bruins goalie Niklas Svedberg saved 28 of 30 shots in a gut-wrenching loss against the Avalanche on Monday.
Insight: The Bruins were one second away from at least one point when Svedberg allowed Daniel Briere's shot to squeak by for the game-winner. This was Svedberg's second career start, and he will serve as Tuukka Rask's backup this year.

Description: Boston goalie Biklas Svedberg picked up a 3-2 overtime win in his NHL debut Thursday against Nashville.
Insight: The 24-year-old Svedberg had a tremendous 2012-13 season with Providence, putting up a 2.17 GAA and a .925 SV%, but he slipped to 2.87 and .909 in 22 games this season. As long as Tuukka Rask is healthy and Chad Johnson is still on the roster, Svedberg won't play enough to be a fantasy option.
