As per Jim Cerny’s twitter, coach John Tortorella mentioned that Chad Johnson will be getting some starts in goal soon. It is very possible that the first start could be tonight against Atlanta. If he does not start tonight, it is very likely he will start Saturday’s matinee against Boston.
I would prefer he start against Boston, as they are the lesser offensive threat. If you give the Thrashers some open room, they will light any goalie in the league up.
Update 10:45am I take that back. I’m ok with Johnson starting tonight. Atlanta has lost nine in a row. Can’t get much colder than that.
