I'm not saying Montoya has been bad with the Isles. He's clearly played well, and I'm kinda happy for him. He's a good kid who never had a full opportunity to prove his worth here because of Lundqvist. Nor am I denying that we've had our fair share of struggles against backups and rookies.

But when it comes down to it, I'd rather have Lundqvist between the pipes than pretty much any other goalie in the league, including Montoya.

That being said, this should be an interesting match up. We'll see if Montoya steps up to the challenge of playing for the first time against the team that drafted and later traded him, as well as against the goalie that essentially took his job (not really, but you know what I mean).

I'm excited for this one.

PS: Anyone else hoping we play our whites at home? Just seems more appropriate.
