Newark, NJ (WGR 550) -- Jhonas Enroth breaks Ryan Miller’s string of 15 straight starts as he gets the call in goal tonight in New Jersey.
Enroth has lost 12 straight starts dating back to a year ago November, This season he’s 0-2-0 with a 4.73 goals against. Ron Rolston said, “We’ve been playing things off of Ryan and how he was doing and felt this was a good opportunity to get him in there.”
Rolston has liked the way Enroth has practiced which is why he earned this chance, “He’s done a good job since I’ve been here working with Jim Corsi. Really for him right now his practices are his games and in those situations he’s certainly done a good job for us and merits an opportunity.”
John Scott skated on the fourth line and Jochen Hecht did the extra skating with James Patrick. When John Vogl attempted to speak with him, he told him to go talk to the guys that are playing.
