12:39PM: Alain Vigneault spoke to John Giannone on MSG and said the following about Chytil, "whether it be our players, fans or you guys, everyone sees that skill set and ability. Can he do it moving forward? He will answer that with his performance but so far he has earned the right to start with us and day by day we will see how he does. So far I really like the young man, he loves the game, loves being on the ice and that is what we are looking for."
