Steve Zipay at Blue Notes has this quote on Artem Anisimov's play last night...
"He continues to progress," said Tortorella. "With his aptitude, he learns very quickly. Artie was around it offensively and defensively, we put him on the ice at the end of the game, he did a good job on the faceoff going ahead."
Torts says Christensen not on ice as precaution for "maintenance"
...probably a smart idea as groin injuries can be tricky.
Meanwhile Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants reports no decision has been made on who will start in goal Saturday night in Boston...
“I don’t know what the plan is for this weekend,” Lundqvist said. “I’ll be ready when they tell me to play. It’s his choice. It is a little different having Marty here. It’s a different situation. It changes a little bit. Obviously, I like to play but, at the same time, in the long run, it’s good.”
...i wouldn't be against Biron getting a second straight start. It's why the Rangers brought him in. If he can get on a roll why pull him out. A fresh Lundqvist can only be a good thing.
...i guess my only worry would be Hank's confidence if he struggles a bit and Torts decides to roll with a hot Biron.
