Weekes was outstanding tonight - had a very lundqvist-esque game besides maybe the gagne goal. He made the big saves when he had to and kept you guys in the game. Never thought I'd say this, but congrats on officially making the playoffs.
The Rangers aren't starting me or you tommorow night. Jesus Weekes has beaten the Flyers twice this season and lost in overtime at home. (A game that saw Weekes make an unreal save late in the game to get the Rangers the point) I'm not his biggest fan but come on he might be the best backup out of all the Eastern Conferance playoff teams.
well usually backups acquire there stats from playing in games and usually they start them, emery is still a backup to hasek and therefore your argument isnt valid
if you want to argue about whos better at keeping the bench warm weekes or emery let me know what you find
weekes played well tonight, but its about time he earned his paycheck at a home game
when a goalie is playing every night he is not filling the role of backup goalie. backing up and starting is not the same thing similar as pinch-hitting is not the same as getting regular plate appearances. since Emery struggled when he was actually serving as the backup, I would say he isn't the best backup in the East. I'm not saying Weekes is, though.
