Excited for this one. I'll be in attendance and hope to push my road record in regular season games to 5-0.
With that being said, I assume Rinne will be in tonight with Lindback tomorrow. Rinne has two full days of rest since Saturday so I don't see why not.

I don't know if he still does this because I never pay attention anymore, but I know Trotz used to have a rule where he wouldn't play the same goalie in back-to-back nights. Even if he doesn't do that anymore I think you've gotta start Lindback tomorrow anyway. His confidence may already be shaky because it's a month into the season and he hasn't started, and has had Rinne's extension thrown in his face. If he doesn't even get the start in the back end of a back-to-back he may really get down on himself. I realize he's a pro athlete and it comes with the territory but he is a good goalie and you've got to show faith in him. Of course I never want to see Rinne sit, but for Lindback's good I think you start him tomorrow.
