Andrew Gross at Rangers Rants reports that Martin Biron was the first goaltender off the ice at the morning skate meaning he will start tonight against the Islanders at MSG.
…with the Flyers tomorrow, makes sense to give Lundqvist a rest. Even if it’s against the rival Islanders.
In other line-up news, Jeff Woywitka was hit on his injured foot with an errant puck during practice officially ending any chances he had of returning to the line-up. Tim Erixon will get his second straight start in his absence.
…thought Erixon looked solid in New Jersey the other night, so I’m more than comfortable having him in there again.
