Rangers-Flyers: Lundqvist in for 6th straight, Bickel back on D
First visit for Philly to NYC tonight, and if you follow me on Twitter @stevezipay (and I'm not sure why on Earth you wouldn't), you'd already know that Henrik Lundqvist will start in net for the sixth straight game. He is 2-1-0 in the last three, and allowed just two goals in two of 'em.
Judging by the morning skate, Stu Bickel wll be back on defense after three starts on the blueline by Steve Eminger, including the 2-1 loss to the Flyers last Thursday.
Lundqvist made a rare appearance at the morning skate, getting some extra work in before surrendering the cage to Marty Biron, who has yet to make a start, but stopped 19 of 20 in relief against the Pens on Jan. 20. Pittsburgh, who won 6-3, is in town Thursday again.
Expect Ilya Bryzgalov in goal for Flyers...
