Rumblings: Rangers looking for goalie to back up Cam Talbot

The New York Rangers feel they have a pretty good handle on Henrik Lundqvist's situation, but to be safe, word is the Blueshirts are canvassing the market to see if there’s a fit to bring in an experienced goalie to back up Cam Talbot.

Right now the backup is 20-year-old Mackenzie Skapski, and I think the Rangers would like a little more insurance behind Talbot while Lundqvist is out.

Lundqvist will be out of action for at least three weeks, the result of a vascular injury suffered when he was struck in the neck by a puck last weekend. He hopes to be back before the start of the playoffs.
