I mentioned this in the pregdt i might have have played him both....this is where not bringing up markstrom stings; come on clemmer make me eat my words.
I think you've been overrating Markstrom quite a bit.
He didn't play many games here to conclude that he'd clearly be the better option right now. He stole one in Montreal, but also showed he needed more development. I believe his last game against TB...that game he looked pretty terrible. His upside is tremendous, but you gotta admit that he's basically just relying on his incredible size right now. His rebound control is not good and his positioning is a little shaky at times.
I know it's a B2B but there's a nice break after tomorrow's game so I don't see why Theo can't play both of these games.
And of course the Rangers did the same **** again. Played Biron the game before playing us so Hank could be well-rested for us. Hate the Rags.
We wanted to give Hank rest, but still a warmup before the Winter Classic. Also, you have good chances with Clemmenson. I didn't want to believe it, but the Rangers do really shut the bed against backups.
