Nearly all of the Rangers took part in Saturday's optional morning skate at the Air Canada Centre as the club looks to rebound from Thursday's loss at home to the Senators with a win tonight in Toronto.
Rangers head coach John Tortorella announced that Martin Biron will make the start in goal this evening for the Blueshirts, and that Brandon Dubinsky will miss his second straight game due to a sore shoulder. He will be replaced in the lineup once again by Wojtek Wolski.
"It's still sore," Tortorella said of Dubinsky's shoulder. "And shoulders are funny things. The other night he was able to play through it, all pumped up on adrenaline, but then it was real sore the next day. We're just going to be careful."
Wolski returned to the lineup Thursday night after a 29-game absence and appeared in his 400th NHL contest. He logged 14:50 worth of ice-time and fired three shots on goal.
Biron will be making his 11th start of the season. He has won eight of his first ten decisions in net and fashioned an excellent 2.02 goals against average so far this season. Last season he backstopped a pair of wins against Toronto.
Biron's most recent start came on January 5th, a 3-2 overtime win over the Panthers at The Garden in which he turned aside 19 shots.
"Everyone enjoys coming here, it's a great atmosphere," Tortorella said of playing in Toronto. "Tonight we need to get everyone playing. We're going along the road trying to get one thing done, and that's to win games. Our team will not get complacent."
