Ipdate 3:45pm: Looks like I was mistaken, Biron gets the start tonight, Lundqvist has the flu. Johnson will serve as the backup.
The Rangers have called up goaltender Chad Johnson from the CT Whale, likely to serve as the backup for tonight’s game. Henrik Lundqvist, who was not at the optional skate this morning (starting netminders rarely partake in these) is still likely to start. That means Martin Biron may have some sort of nagging issue that will keep him from dressing.
No need to panic, this appears to be one of those emergency call ups, so it may not count against the Rangers four allotted call ups post-trade deadline (now at three since the call up of Mats Zuccarello).
