According to the NHL transaction wire, the Rangers have recalled goalie Cam Talbot from Connecticut.
Which probably means that Henrik Lundqvist might not be able to play tonight after, apparently, being hit around the kneecap by a shot last night.
Presumably, Talbot would back up Chad Johnson if Lundqvist can’t play, or at least back up Johnson.
On the other hand, this could all be stupid speculation, and perhaps Talbot was called up so Lundqvist doesn’t have to practice during this stretch of four games in six days.
We should know relatively soon, after John Tortorella addresses the media around 5. I will tweet anything that comes out of that presser, then update here asap.
