Yeah Torts have to play someone. Heikkenen has not been getting a lot of ice time probably because he's a rookie. And with Sanguinetti now up one of them has to get some significant ice time. Whether Tortorella likes it or not.
I wonder what's the deal with the backup situation. At some time Hank is gonna have to take a game off, but I can hardly imagine Zaba would be the one playing. So why aren't they switching him with Johnson? I guess Lundqvist is gonna play all games till the back-to-back games at the end of the month, but I'm not sure if that's the best thing
Last game I noticed Chad Johnson was on the bench, I think they already sent Zaba and brought Johnson back up. I'd venture to say he gets his first start at the Coliseum on thursday, and I'll be there.
