Hank had four full days off between the Boston win and the Jackets win. He had a day off in between the Jackets and Pens game, which was a travel game.

If he played tonight, it would have been his 3rd game in 5 days, but after tonight he would have had two days off until the devils game with zero travel since Tuesday night.

If Henrik played tonight and Monday -- that's only 4 games in 9 days with one travel day.

My guess (and it's just a guess) is that he wants Henrik in goal when the Rangers legs are tired - the second game of back to backs.
