Lundqvist Almost Had to Play Last Night

Rick Carpiniello at Ranger Rants reports that Martin Biron was actually shaken up during warmups last night and the sick Henrik Lundqvist almost need to suit up…

“Lundqvist was in about half his uniform the whole game, just in case Biron got hurt. And during warmups, Artem Anisimov fired one off Biron’s sternum, and it stung and Biron went and told Lundqvist he might have to put on the full uniform.”

…not sure the severity of Lundqvist’s illness but how awesome would it have been to watch him make a save and then turn into the net and lose his lunch?

Carp also drops this stat on us: Biron = 2 wins. All of Lundqvist’s backups last year = 3 wins.

…i said it all offseason, Biron could end up being the most important signing of the summer.
