Note: Henrik Lundqvist Is Happy To Get A Lot of Minutes/Happy To Rest Tonight

Marty Biron makes his second start of the season tonight as the Rangers take on the Islanders.

Henrik Lundqvist, who has started the Rangers last four games, said this morning that he feels the minutes he has been playing lately has helped his game, but he will enjoy his rest tonight, “It’s been a lot of games lately. I am going to take this opportunity to rest and watch this game, but I need to be ready in case something happens. The good thing when you sit out is that when you come back you are so excited to get back out and play. This season is different because you have more energy, it’s not like you are tired at all. I am happy to see a lot of minutes here, it’s helped me get back to where I should be.”

When asked about how Marty Biron prepares and the differences between the two, Lundqvist said “he is very relaxed. He talks a lot when he plays. It’s easier to approach him before the game. I kind of let him do his thing. He doesn’t really talk to me before the game. When we get close he is focused. We are just very different there. I am in my bubble and he is very relaxed. That is just the way he is, being focused when it’s time to be focused.”

John Tortorella said on Behind the Bench that the two are polar opposites in how they handle themselves.

Sorry guys but Geno does not seem threatened by this QB group. Hope it's not a bad thing though.

Devin Smith out on the side lines walking very slow smiling. Jets are gonna need Devin to get well asap  Devin changes he dynamics on the offense

 Marshall in the slot is an amazing idea.. especially for Geno.. give him a huge seam possibility or a huge security blanket when the blitzes come.   I actually used Marshall in the slot in madden a lot.. its pretty unstoppable.

Its just another way of getting it done. Sounds like if Decker and Marshal facing outside corners who are really good  then moving the pieces round is the way to go. I heard to day Larry Fitzgerald in Arizona is learning the slot position this year, didn't make sense to me until now. Thanks Bass.

As an example, would you rather have marshall covered by a revis like cb or a kyle wilson like cb? And if they move a better cb inside to deal with him, it leaves a lesser cb on decker or on a burner like smith when he returns...makes a lot of sense.

Good read.

The Jets are doing the right thing here. They should use 4 receivers on the field at once and put both Marshall and Amaro in the slot. You can use Decker and Shaq Evans on the outside and also Devin Smith when he regains his health....


Marshall and Amaro together are matchup nightmares in the slot. Most slot CB's are undersized and most  linebackers can't effectively cover Marshall or Amaro when they are lined up on the inside
