Reimer finished with 25 saves in the Panthers' 3-2 overtime loss at Chicago on Tuesday.
Advice: Making a fourth straight start in place of an injured Roberto Luongo, Reimer couldn't quite follow up his 34-save effort in Monday's 2-1 win at Detroit. Though he'll be the Panthers' No. 1 goaltender for the time being, the 29-year-old shouldn't be counted on for fantasy success. He's 4-5-4 with a subpar 3.67 goals-against average and an .888 save percentage over his last 14 appearances.
James Reimer will start Tuesday night versus Chicago.
Advice: Reimer will get his second start in two nights after he stopped 34 shots in a 2-1 overtime win over Detroit on Monday night. He had a 2-2-0 record in the second half of back-to-backs last season when he played both contests.

Advice: Reimer and the Panthers had a 2-1 lead until Jonathan Toews struck for an even-strength goal with 6:02 remaining in regulation. Then, it was Patrick Kane sending the Windy City faithful home happy with a goal at 2:24 of overtime.

Advice: Reimer has now given up more than three goals in each of his last six outings. His record falls to 5-7-3 with a 3.81 goals-against average and an .888 save percentage.

The Panthers goalie now has a 5-6-3 record with a 3.70 goals-against-average and a .892 save percentage this season. Even with Roberto Luongo on the shelf, Reimer's fantasy stock remains low.
