Description: Avalanche goalie Calvin Pickard had a tremendous game on Thursday, but it still wasn't enough.
Insight: Pickard made 47 saves and helped the Avalanche force overtime in Pittsburgh. The Penguins were knocking on the doorstep for most of the third period and finally broke through in overtime. Pickard is 4-6-1 this season.

Description: Avalanche goalie Calvin Pickard played very well in place of the injured Semyon Varlamov on Tuesday.
Insight: Pickard, however, still lost as Predators goalie and top Vezina trophy candidate Pekka Rinne posted a shutout. Pickard allowed on goal on 34 shots. Nashville won, 3-0, as they added two empty-net goals in the final two minutes. Pickard is worth adding in standard leagues.

Description: Avalanche goalie Calvin Pickard will start on Tuesday.
Insight: Pickard has been decent this season, mostly filling in for the injured Semyon Varlamov. Pickard has a 2.49 GAA and .922 save percentage this season.

Description: Avalanche goalie Calvin Pickard played well again on Saturday.
Insight: Pickard made 22 saves on 24 shots to post a .917 save percentage, which is actually his lowest this month. Since taking over the starting role when Semyon Varlamov went down with an injury, Pickard is 3-1-0 with a .955 save percentage and a 1.41 GAA.

Description: Avalanche goalie Calvin Pickard faced 45 shots in Wednesday's loss to the Kings.
Insight: He stopped 42 of them, but it wasn't enough. Pickard is now 2-3-0 with a 2.24 GAA and .933 save percentage. He is not an option for owners.
 
11/26/2014 10:00:00 AM
Description: Avalanche goalie Calvin Pickard came in relief of Reto Berra, and earned a victory Tuesday against the Coyotes.
Insight: Does this sound familiar? This is the second time in four days that Berra was awful to start a game, and Pickard came on to lead Colorado to victory. Berra allowed three goals on eight shots while Pickard did not yield a single goal on 25 shots. Pickard is the goalie to own until Semyon Varlamov returns.
 
11/23/2014 10:28:00 AM
Description: Avalanche goalie Calvin Pickard came in relief of Reto Berra, and earned a victory Saturday versus Carolina.
Insight: Berra allowed three goals on 10 shots, before being lifted for Pickard. It was a good move by coach Patrick Roy, as Pickard stopped all 17 shots on goal, to pick up his first win of the season. Owners should leave him on the waiver wire, but it was a nice win nevertheless.
 
10/18/2014 2:30:00 PM
Description: Avalanche goalie Calvin Pickard will start in goal against the Canadiens on Saturday evening.
Insight: Both Semyon Varlamov and Reto Berra are banged up, paving the way for Pickard to get the nod. However, Pickard will likely not see many more starts after this one, meaning he can be left on waivers.
