Lundqvist vs Rask Tonight

As expected the NYRangers lineup will stay the same tonight in front of the net and in a traditional move Tortorella goes back to Lundqvist tonight.  Seems as if both coaches are playing on the history of numbers against the opponent in this one as Tim Thomas despite his great start to the year will give way to Tukka Rask who is 2-1 1.34GAA .957 SV% and 1 SO in 3 starts against the Rangers.  While Rask's numbers are very impressive versus the Rangers they dont stack up quite as impressively as Henrik's 13-4-0-2 1.39 GAA .951SV% in 19 starts, if only the number of starts Henrik has done it against Boston.

As I said yesterday I would have given Biron another go today to see how he and the team responded, but can never get too upset when the coach puts Lundqvist between the pipes.

  1. Have to disagree with you, should be Henrik as he is our guy. It was only one game for Biron
