Tom Renney had Valiquette penciled in for tonight a while ago, but made it official this morning. This doesn't rule out a split for the B2B games this weekend. Lundqvist has allowed nine goals in his last two starts. Valiquette's performance tonight will probably dictate who plays this weekend or if Lundqvist plays both back-to-back games.
Miikka Kiprussoff will takes his one game a month off tonight as TSN.ca has reported Curtis McElhinney will start between the pipes.
