winning in montreal on saturday nights for us is tough.

montreal has not been good at home this year...

I used to love Pierre Houde myself, but Benoit Brunet is a clown.

I really want someone to put Gomez into the 3rd row. I hate his stupid face.

i am gonna watch it on cbc montreal. Anything is better than those french homers. Unless your a montreal fan, RDS is unwatchable.

Wasn't the last one against them the first Saturday game since the 90's or something?

Ever since the 5 goal game, I hate playing in Montreal. Like a real Ranger fan, expect the worst and pray for the best

It's just an arena. If the situation repeated itself where the Rangers took a 5-0 lead, I'd much rather be the Rangers than the Canadiens. Constantly expecting the worst says a lot about the history of the team in general.

Still makes no sense. If we play Montreal in the playoffs, does Biron play over Henke?

Exactly. Take away games in Montreal and Hank probably has won 2 or 3 Vezina trophies.

(Hyperbole, but you get the picture.)

Also, there is a three games in four night stint coming up starting on Wednesday, with this move you can assume that Hank will be starting all three. This way Marty gets a chance to play in front of his family and friends, possibly.

win or lose. i think this is the right thing to do. Biron will be jacked up for this and the team will do there best for him.

Henrik has been rattled here since the 5 nothing disaster.

This is a good move.

And he's usually our best player on the ice, in Montreal. What does that say about how we usually perform there... how quickly people forget games such as when Hank allowed 6 goals, but was still a star of the game, because Montreal could probably have scored 18 on us that night and he was actually playing amazing. Somehow, it seems it's usually Hank's fault if we lose, because he didn't stand on his head when the team stopped playing hockey. There is no "I" in team.

Considering how solid Biron has been, it's logical to play him to let him keep his steam up. But, considering the extremely light schedule, it's not wise resting Hank either. He usually doesn't favour such a long rest between games. It feels like a lose-lose situation, both Hank and Biron need games. The guy responsible for this playing schedule should be shot.

Then let's save him the trouble of a hard loss.

Biron usually either steals games or blows it. If he blows it, well, at least its in a game we likely would have lost anyways.

Only problem with Marty is that he'll actually understand whats being shouted at him.

Was expecting him to go with Biron, good move. Hank should come out on fire Tuesday night after being off for a week.

I'm expecting a big game out of Avery in Quebec

Hopefully the GAS line gets back on the scoresheet and the Rangers can find a way to grab their 8th straight. I'd like them to keep the pace they're at with the Flyers and Penguins, being relatively close with a handful of games in hand.
