4/2/2013 5:24:00 PM
Description: Lightning goaltender Mathieu Garon will start Tuesday against the Panthers.
Insight: Garon has a 2.90 GAA this season so he isn't a good fantasy option.
 
3/20/2013 5:38:00 PM
Description: Lightning goaltender Mathieu Garon will start Wednesday against Toronto.
Insight: Garon won his first start back after missing nearly two weeks with a lower-body injury and Anders Lindback followed that up with a win of his own two days later. We could be looking at a hot-hand situation with Tampa Bay's netminders and an even split when both are playing well.
 
3/15/2013 9:31:00 PM
Description: Lightning goaltender Mathieu Garon will get the start Saturday against Carolina.
Insight: Garon hasn't played since suffering a lower-body injury on March 4 at Pittsburgh. Anders Lindback posted a 1.97 GAA in his absence and should get most of the starts going forward unless he starts struggling again.
 
3/9/2013 11:50:00 AM
Description: Lightning goaltender Mathieu Garon had a lower-body MRI on Wednesday that came back clear, according to TampaBay.com. He is questionable for Saturday's game against Montreal.
Insight: Garon has been starting over Anders Lindback lately, but Lindback has played well in his last two games, and could continue to start.
 
3/7/2013 6:15:00 PM
Description: Lightning goaltender Mathieu Garon had a lower-body MRI on Wednesday that came back clear, according to TampaBay.com. He'll skate Friday before being reevaluated.
Insight: Garon has been starting over Anders Lindback lately but Lindback had a strong start on Tuesday and could find himself back in the driver's seat.
 
3/5/2013 5:57:00 PM
Description: Lightning goaltender Mathieu Garon's lower-body injury is not considered serious, according to TBO.com.
Insight: Garon has been starting over Anders Lindback recently but he suffered the injury Monday against Pittsburgh. The team recalled Cedrick Desjardins from Syracuse to back up Lindback. Garon's current injury is unrelated to the torn groin muscle that caused him to miss the final month of the 2011-12 season. "It's not major; I'm day-to-day and I feel better today and hopefully I'm OK,'' Garon said. "I'll need to test it on the ice and, in a couple of days, hopefully I'll be good.''
 
2/28/2013 12:44:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay goaltender Mathieu Garon will get another start Thursday against the Rangers after his tough-luck loss to Buffalo on Tuesday.
Insight: Anders Lindback gave up three goals in the first period Sunday and was replaced by Garon, who has played the last five periods for Tampa Bay and will go for three more Thursday.
 
2/26/2013 5:21:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay backup goaltender Mathieu Garon will start Tuesday against Buffalo.
Insight: Lindback gave up three goals in the first period Sunday and was replaced by Garon. This will be a situation to watch going forward, as the Lightning have offered plenty of offensive support to their goaltenders this season.
 
2/23/2013 3:21:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay backup goaltender Mathieu Garon has been confirmed to start Saturday's game against the Hurricanes.
Insight: The Lightning are starting a back-to-back so Anders Lindback will rest up for Sunday's game. With a 1-3 record and a 3.19 GAA in four starts, Garon hasn't been a serviceable backup this season.
 
2/14/2013 1:26:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay backup goaltender Mathieu Garon will make a start Thursday against the Capitals. Starter Anders Lindback is under the weather.
Insight: Garon allowed three goals in his last two starts, both against the Rangers. Washington comes in hot with two wins and 11 goals over the last two contests.
 
2/10/2013 5:22:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay backup goaltender Mathieu Garon will start Sunday's game against the Rangers.
Insight: Garon has only started two games this season, going 1-1 with a 2.03 GAA. The team is committed to Anders Lindback as the No. 1 netminder.
 
1/22/2013 10:08:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay backup goaltender Mathieu Garon saved 35-of-36 shots (.972 SV%) in a win Tuesday over the Hurricanes.
Insight: Garon isn't about to become a fantasy option but he might cut into 24-year-old Anders Lindback's playing time.
 
1/22/2013 5:45:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay will start backup Mathieu Garon in net on Tuesday against the Hurricanes.
Insight: Garon will replace Anders Lindback, who has started off with one win and a 3.51 GAA in two games. Lindback has upside in deeper fantasy leagues but Garon shouldn't be on any rosters.
 
10/22/2011 11:54:00 PM
Description: Mathieu Garon stopped all 21 shots he faced in the Lightning's 3-0 win over Buffalo on Saturday. NHL.com
Insight: Garon has now started back-to-back games for the Bolts, allowing just one goal during that span. Dwayne Roloson has struggled mightily this season, meaning that Garon could get the nod again for Tuesday's rematch with the Sabres. Garon can be hot and cold, so don't expect this run to be long-term.
 
7/1/2011 1:17:00 PM
Description: The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed goalie Mathieu Garon to a two-year contract worth $2.6 million. TSN
Insight: Garon will likely back up Dwayne Roloson for the Bolts. The two are familiar with each other from their time in Edmonton during 2007 and 2008.
 
2/12/2011 10:03:00 AM
Description: Garon broke a six-game winless streak by stopping 31 of 32 Colorado shots Friday night.
Insight: It was just his second victory in his past 12 decisions but the third time in his past five that Garon allowed two goals or fewer. (RapidDraft.com)
 
12/23/2010 9:22:00 PM
Description: Mathieu Garon was pulled after allowing six goals on 21 shots against Vancouver on Thursday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: The rough outing wasn't all Garon's fault, as he received very little defensive support and had to make 15 saves before allowing his first goal in the first period. Garon was recently named the team's starter by coach Scott Arniel, so expect Garon to continue as the starter for the time being despite this game.
 
12/22/2010 8:02:00 AM
Description: Garon made 29 saves in a 3-1 win over the Flames on Tuesday night.
Insight: Garon improved to 8-4-2 with a 1.91 GAA on the year. (RapidDraft.com)
 
12/21/2010 11:12:00 PM
Description: Mathieu Garon stopped 29 of 30 shots he faced in the Blue Jackets' 3-1 win over Calgary on Tuesday. TSN
Insight: Jackets coach Scott Arniel recently stated that Garon would be the team's starter for the time being. Garon's numbers (1.98 GAA, .924 SV%, 3 SO) make him a more deserving starter than Steve Mason (3.29 GAA, .901 SV%, 1 SO). If Garon is still available in your league, he is without a doubt worthy of an add.
 
12/16/2010 9:00:00 AM
Description: Garon made 27 saves in a 3-2 OT loss to the Canucks on Wednesday night.
Insight: Garon lost in OT for a second straight start as he fell to 7-3-2 with a 2.02 GAA on the year. (RapidDraft.com)
