Biron Bounces Back!

I didn't see the game last night but after reading about it I would be remiss if I didn't make a comment or two especially about the play of Marty Biron. Biron bouced back after a couple of subpar performances. He only had to make 21 saves last night but the main thing was that he responded when the Rangers needed him.

We are coming down the stretch now and Lundqvist needs all the rest he can take. So when Biron sits in it's not just as a fill-in it's to win a game. And win he did last night with help from Gaborik, Anisimov and Prust.

The Rangers were shorthanded last night. Callahan is out with a bruised foot and Del Zotto got hurt late in the game. How is that kamikaze defense working, coach? To add insult to injury Brandon Dubinsky sat most of the game for taking a misconduct penalty. Hey, it's hockey and players get misconduct penalties. It's an emotional game and players do things on emotion. At least he didn't throw a water bottle at the fans.

But this is about our backup goalie, the other Marty in the Metro area, Marty Biron. Great job and surely the number one star last night, at least in my book.
