The franchise netminder gave up five goals en route to a 6-3 loss in Anaheim last night, ending New York's hopes for sweeping the California teams. Now, it's on to Martin Biron Memorial Arena, colloquially known as the Shark Tank, for a game in San Jose tomorrow night. Here are today's news and links:
