An X-ray yesterday revealed that Rangers rookie defenseman Fedor Tyutin suffered a nondisplaced fracture of his left ring finger Thursday night at Carolina. Tyutin isn't expected to miss more than a couple of games
Rangers defenseman Fedor Tyutin is questionable for Saturday's 1 p.m. home game against Carolina after suffering a non-displaced fracture of the ring finger on his left hand while blocking a shot in the second period of Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Hurricanes. Tyutin is day-to-day.Kevin Weekes will start in goal Saturday
Weekes should be pumped to play against his old team. I hope Rangers are ready since its a day game. I predict 4-2 Rangers win. Jagr, Rucchin, Moore and Prucha with the goals. Cole and Staal for the Canes.
Games after you get crushed are big games to see a team's true skill/determination. I think if they play well this afternoon they can get right back on track before this stretch of inferior opponents. I do not want this team having trouble during the easiest part of their schedule. But that's the future. As for today, cmon Weekes.
a strong game by weekes today and he becomes the clear #1.
Not really. Because Lundy has one game where he is not superhuman that means he will get thrown in the backup duties. Both will play a lot of games, and unless one goes down with an injury that is how I see it panning out for the whole season. 60/40, or 50/50.
Im positive Lundqvist will start tomorrow night against Boston.
I kind of question starting Weekes tonight. I know myself, after having a game like Lundqvist did (again it wasn't terrible, just off), I'd want to be back in against Carolina. After a game like that you can't sleep. You start seeing their jerseys in practice, and you're hungry all the ****ing time. I'd be mad, and hopefully Lundy comes out and throttles his next oppoents - that's what I'd do.
We will see if Weekes has an advantage playing against Carolina. The Flyers are playing the penguins today so, our being tied for 1st in the divsion is under fire today. Let's end this Carolina winning streak!
