Antti Raanta pulled by concussion spotters; Rangers take loss as result

The new wrinkle in the NHL this season is the presence of concussion spotters, who can call down to the ice if they think a player is playing with concussion symptoms.

Backup plan: The case to play goalies on consecutive nights

If NHL coaches want to provide goalies quality downtime during a constricted schedule, Martin Biron believes he has an ideal backup plan.

Video: Garret Sparks makes getting up look freakishly easy

Garret Sparks became the first goalie in Maple Leafs history to pick up a shutout in his debut. He made some great saves, but one of the coolest moments was a non-incident in which Sparks lost his balance and fell down. Watch how he gets back up, courtesy of former goalie Martin Biron. I am always amazed by how young goalies do things. Watch Sparks get up at the end. Does he know...

Report card: Goaltending

This was kind of a strange year for Ranger goaltending. We saw Martin Biron retire after only seven games, Henrik Lundqvist really struggle for the first time in his career and the relatively untested Cam Talbot come up and dominate.
