Niittymaki to start for Sharks

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- The San Jose Sharks are finishing their morning skate for tonight's game against the Sabres, and it appears Antero Niittymaki will get the start in goal. Fellow netminder Antti Niemi is still on the ice getting extra work with the Sharks' scratches.

Niittymaki is 12-4-3 this season with a 2.44 goals-against average and .905 save percentage. He is 0-3-2 in seven appearances against the Sabres, with a 4.33 GAA and .851 save percentage.

Niemi's only career appearance against the Sabres was the Sharks' 6-3 loss in Buffalo in December.
