Live from The Peg: Looks like Lundqvist for 7th straight
And why not?
The team's No. 1 netminder wasn't under duress for most of last night's game in St. Paul, and if he's supposed to be getting "into the flow", this makes sense. He also started back to back against Buffalo and Toronto on Friday and Saturday (1-1)
I just pulled into town, but according to MSG's John Giannone, Martin Biron was on ice with some spares: Jeff Woywitka, Steve Eminger, Tim Erixon. We'll know more for sure around 4 p.m., when John Tortorella will have his pre-game briefing. Speaking of which, 6 p.m. start here on the prairie, so 7 p.m. for you guys and girls back on the East Coast.
The Winnipeg Free Press quoted Jets coach Claude Noel as saying his players were "tired and spent and fatigued and physically fatigued" a day after a 6-4 loss to Ottawa, their fourth in the last five, and a defeat that left them eight points out of eighth in the East with six games left. If G Ondrej Pavelec starts tonight at MTS Centre, it will be 13 in a row.
So....time to get organized. Later...
