The Sabres will certainly see Henrik Lundqvist in goal Tuesday night in New York but the Rangers are suddenly thin at that position. The Blueshirts have just tweeted that old friend Marty Biron is out indefinitely with a fractured collarbone suffered today at practice. Ouch. Larry Brooks of the New York Post is reporting Biron will be out at least the rest of the regular season.
Talk about bad timing. There were plenty of backup goalies, notably Ty Conklin, on the waiver wire that could have been scooped up that went unclaimed and the team, of course, didn't make a deal for one because it didn't have a need. Or so it thought. Instead, the Rangers are calling up Cam Talbot from Connecticut of the AHL.
