News: Giguere made his 19th start of the campaign in Sunday's season finale, turning aside 33 of 36 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Ducks. Impact: Vezina candidate and Avs MVP Semyon Varlamov was originally slated to face the Ducks, but was swapped for Giguere after a Blues loss earlier in the day handed the Avs the Central Division crown. Although the game was meaningless in the standings, Jiggy's 33-save performance against his former team was a nice exclamation point on what was likely the last regular-season game of his illustrious 16-year career. The 36-year-old finishes the season with a 11-6-1 record to go along with a .913 save percentage and a 2.62 GAA. With 52 career playoff games under his belt, he'll provide some much-needed experience to Varlamov and the Avs as they embark on their hunt for Lord Stanley starting Thursday.(RotoWire, )

News: Giguere is slated to start Sunday's game against the Ducks. Impact: With the Avs locked into a first-round playoff matchup against the Wild, Giguere is now in line to start over Semyon Varlamov on Sunday night.(RotoWire, )

News: Giguere stopped 22 of 24 shots in relief of Reto Berra in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Sharks. Impact: After Giguere made what many believe to be his last regular-season appearance of his career Thursday, he was forced into action against the Sharks after Berra gave up two goals on five shots and was yanked by coach Patrick Roy. In a game doomed from the beginning, Giggy fared just fine in this one, which is comforting for the Avs in case they need to turn to the 2003 Conn Smythe winner if Semyon Varlamov stumbles in the postseason.(RotoWire, )

News: Giguere stopped 22 of 23 during Tuesday's victory in Edmonton -- his first appearance since March 18. Impact: After almost three weeks out of the lineup, Giguere certainly didn't show much rust against the Oilers. It's hard to say whether he'll see another start before the playoffs, but after this fine outing, it seems like it's become more likely.(RotoWire, )
