Lundqvist to Start vs. Islanders at Yankee Stadium

Alain Vigneault announced today that Henrik Lundqvist will again be the starter at Yankee Stadium tomorrow vs. the Islanders.

Vigneault discussed the benefit of going with Hank for the second straight game at the Stadium (via Blueshirts United)…

"Probably the individual it would help the most is Hank (Henrik Lundqvist). He'll have his bearings, the fact that people (fans) are not right behind (the glass). I think having had a practice and played in a game I think should help him. We all saw how challenging it was for the goaltenders at the beginning of that game (Sunday), so it should help."

…100% agree with Vigneault here. Similar to Sunday, these are two huge points and the Rangers can't afford to fall behind again while Talbot acclimates himself to the new surrounds. Sure the Rangers were able to comeback vs. Devils, but I'm assuming AV would rather not roll the dice again.
