The Goalie Shuffle

As first reported on Twitter by Laurie Carr of Beyond the Blueshirts, Chad Johnson has been sent back to Hartford and Matt Zaba has been recalled to serve as Henrik Lundqvist's backup for tomorrow's game against the Hurricanes.  I agree with this move completely...Johnson needs to get some real game minutes under his belt if he hopes to really serve as an NHL backup and get a few starts with the Rangers.  As I mentioned after watching his 2 periods of work on Wednesday night, I think he has a future as a backup but I don't think he's ready now.
