Biron Starting vs Atlanta; D Update

In a somewhat surprise move the Rangers are going with Martin Biron tonight vs the Thrashers and not Henrik Lundqvist.  Biron played very well last week against Toronto and the Rangers will look for a similar type performance tonight.  The Rangers have said all off-season they brought Biron in to give Henrik more rest during the year so he can be fresher down the stretch and this would be an example of that.  Only issue I have is they keep doing it in games sandwiched around days off instead of in back-to-back situations so far.

In other news Eminger and Gilroy will be the 3rd pair tonight and Sauer is out again.  If this is anything other than an injury it is a mistake.  For some reason beyond me it seems Torts wants to find ways to get Eminger in the lineup and even if that is the case Sauer has outplayed both Gilroy and Eminger.
