Steve Zipay at Newsday reports goaltender Matt Zaba, who backed up Henrik Lundqvist in yesterday's game to get rookie goalie Chad Johnson a game down in Hartford, might see some NHL ice time.
"We've gotta make sure we don't lose our development," Tortorella said. "There's gonna be a lot of miles going back and forth with those two guys. We've gone through a whole mapping of the schedule to make sure they both get some games here as we go."
...while I'm excited to see the young goaltenders get a chance, can the Rangers, who will be fighting for a playoff spot until the final day of the season, really afford to throw games away for the development of these two?
...i'd much rather they go out and either trade for or sign (KHL?) a veteran goaltender to spell Lundqvist during the final months of the season.
