1) Do they think Cam Talbot can be a No. 1 goalie without a reliable backup until Lundqvist returns?
If Lundqvist is out for three weeks he'll miss at least 12 games, including the one he missed Wednesday. The Rangers have two sets of back-to-backs in that timeframe.
2) Do they need to acquire a veteran goalie to work in tandem with Talbot until Lundqvist is able to return, provided he is able to return this season?
The Rangers basically admitted Friday they're not 100 percent certain on the three-week timetable. The statement they released left open the possibility Lundqvist will be out longer.
