Lundqvist Almost Had to Play Last Night

Rick Carpiniello at Ranger Rants reports that Martin Biron was actually shaken up during warmups last night and the sick Henrik Lundqvist almost need to suit up...

"Lundqvist was in about half his uniform the whole game, just in case Biron got hurt. And during warmups, Artem Anisimov fired one off Biron’s sternum, and it stung and Biron went and told Lundqvist he might have to put on the full uniform."

...not sure the severity of Lundqvist's illness but how awesome would it have been to watch him make a save and then turn into the net and lose his lunch?

Carp also drops this stat on us: Biron = 2 wins. All of Lundqvist’s backups last year = 3 wins.

...i said it all offseason, Biron could end up being the most important signing of the summer.

Definitely, Biron really looked focused last night. He does dish out some juicy rebounds but I guess Rangers D have to anticipate that and work around it.

Oh, at the game last night fans were calling Biron "The Queen" (assuming Lundqvist is "The King"). Pretty funny.

Staying with the royalty theme, why not Lord Biron

Saw that happen in a college hockey game one year. Most of the Cornell team got food poisoning from the Pizza Hut in Canton, NY. Only about 15 players were even able to dress, and in addition to lots of yarking on the bench, the goalie, Matt Underhill, stopped at least once to turn and blow chunks into the net. Not pretty, but a very impressive and gritty tie earned in that game.

Haha about the Pizza Hut in Canton. Lucky for me the Potsdam one is slightly closer. I'll make sure to never order from the Canton one!
