Martin Biron Starting for Rangers Against Thrashers, Prust likes NYC

Operation give Hank a rest is in full swing.

Coach John Tortorella has opted to start Martin Biron in net tonight as the Rangers face off against Evander Kane and the Atlanta Thrashers at the Garden.

Tortorella has said the goal is to give Biron three or four games a month, giving Lundqvist a good 18-20 games off. Biron had a strong debut in Toronto in the Rangers 2-1 win.

Former Ranger Nik Antopov is in the lineup tonight for Atlanta after being a healthy scratch.

Pink straps and mouthguards are being worn for Hockey Fights Cancer month.

The Rangers are 7-7-1-5 at home against Atlanta.

If the Rangers are to roll on to their fourth win, they need to continue an agressive forecheck and get offensive contributions from their youthful first line of Dubinsky-Anisimov-Callahan.

In Case You Missed It:

Brandon Prust on coming to the Rangers from his amNY NYR diary [1]:

“I was excited about playing in a big city and also about¬† getting to live in Manhattan. Nothing can beat the pace of this city! I live on the Upper West Side, but I find myself spending a lot time downtown. Some of my favorite spots are La Esquina (best tacos in the city), LAVO and The Eldridge, which is always a good scene.

Last week I had a friend in town and had the chance to check out my first Broadway show, ‘Jersey Boys.’ Great show; I definitely recommend seeing it.”
