Vally in net tonight?

Stephen Valiquette will indeed get the start tomorrow night in Toronto against the Leafs. This is all part of the fine print of the backup goaltender’s contract that says he has to play every game against Toronto and Philadelphia, and that most of those games have to be shootouts.

OK, I’m making that part up, but it certainly feels that way. The reality is this game does make sense for Valiquette, in part becauseof his recent success against Toronto, but also because it comes on the heels of Henrik Lundqvist playing six straight games. Once upon a time—like say, last season—six games was nothing. But the Rangers know there’s no point in running their franchise goalie ragged so early in the season.
