After contemplating starting Steve Valiquette tomorrow against Florida, Tom Renney has instead decided to come right back with Henrik Lundqvist.
Renney also plans on playing Lundqvist in both games of the back-to-back against the Penguins and Canadiens later this week, saying this...
“We’ll see how he does,” Tom Renney said to Sam Weinman at The Rangers Report. “He feels good. He’s well rested. And he’s on top of his game, obviously.”
According to Weinman, Renney was going to talk with Jim Schoenfeld and Glen Sather this afternoon about what to do with Petr Prucha. A conditioning stint in Hartford is the most likely option.
...can't argue against starting The King, especially when I'm going to the game tomorrow, but I thought this would have been a nice opportunity to get Valiquette some work. Renney says Lunqvist is well rested so why not ride him.
