Rangers To Start Biron Over Struggling Lundqvist
Lundqvist, 31, admitted that his confidence was shaken after allowing six goals against the Anaheim Ducks in Thursdays embarrassing loss.
Rangers GM Glen Sather said he expected the team to face growing pains, just not to these proportions (1-3-0 record with six goals scored, a league-high 20 allowed).
Considering Lundqvists rough start (.879 save percentage, 4.31 GAA), it might be better for everyone if he takes a little breather. The Rangers enjoy what might be a helpful gap between tomorrows game in St. Louis and Wednesdays trip to face the also-struggling Washington Capitals.
