Stephen Valiquette was the first goalie off the ice today after practice. When coach Renney was asked about it he said not to read into it. The Rangers play the Maple Leafs on Friday.
Renney you can't go against superstition, can you. The Rangers were looking for their best season start at 6-0. Apparently Renney's not superstitious so Steve Zipay reported "Tom actually did decide to change things up and wear brown for the first time this season, so if the team suffers its first loss tonight, you have him to blame". Maybe Mr. Renney you should give superstition a chance.
With back-2-back games this weekend it makes sense to have Valiquette face the Maple Leafs and give a rested Lundqvist a shot at the champion Redwings.
