Rangers confident in Talbot with Lundqvist out

NEW YORK -- New York Rangers goalie Cam Talbot said he found out Tuesday night that he would be playing on national television Wednesday after learning Henrik Lundqvist had a neck injury.

Talbot didn't have to stand on his head in a 3-2 win against the Boston Bruins at Madison Square Garden, but for the Rangers, it's soothing to know they can rely on their backup goaltender to step in and perform when called upon.

In his first start since Jan. 15, Talbot made 18 saves to help the Rangers close the gap in the Metropolitan Division. New York is in third place, one point behind the New York Islanders and two behind the first-place Pittsburgh Penguins.

"I didn't really have to do a whole lot," Talbot said. "The guys did a great job in front of me. They didn't get too many Grade A chances tonight."

Quote of the Day

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
