Call Ups/Demotions

Rangers call up Magnus Hellberg

The Rangers have recalled goalie Magnus Hellberg from the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack. This likely means Antti Raanta will start tonight, and Henrik Lundqvist will not play after colliding with Ryan McDonagh last night.

Hellberg will be the backup, and has a 22-16-2 record in Hartford, with a 2.36 GAA and a .919 SV%.

  • I think Flower calling out Hank is absolutely despicable. I wonder what Hags thinks about that.

    • Was Flower that Announcer lastnite? I wanted to go through the TV and throat punch or maybe choke?

      • Marc-Andre Fleury. He’s not one to speak, since his teammate is the king of whiners Sydney Crosby.

        I will admit Lundqvist was pretty embarrassing with this antics. Really don’t want to make that a habit, for risk joining Sydney with the whiner reputation.

        • It was a little much, and I think Hank let’s frustration get to him sometimes. However, Syd gets preferred treatment from refs, Hank doesn’t get anything like that. For an example of that, see last night.

  • Did you see Holtby came out in defense of Hank? Said the penalty was bogus and he would have done the same thing. Interesting.

    It’s official. Raanta starts tonight.

    • I’m sure that Holtby’s statement was somewhat political, right? No reason to rile up the Rangers by saying something after the morning skate and giving them an excuse to run your crease.

      I wish the Rangers won last night just so we could all look back at Hank flipping out and have a good laugh at it.

  • Raanta shuts out Caps. I can see the papers now – Do we have a goalie competition?

    We win 3-0 and EStall nets his first.

    Life is good

  • Raanta has played very well. But this is a big test for him. Tonight will tell us a lot abt this team. They were great without Hank last year, BUT that was last year.

  • Not surprising or unexpected at all. Goalie fights of yesteryear aside, goalies- especially good ones- respect and support eachother.

    Par for the course to support eachother like that.
