Alain Vigneault met with the media earlier prior to tonight's game against Colorado (NYR):
- On Girardi, "Danny skated this morning, It's coming along and hopefully he will practice with the team tomorrow and it won't be much longer."
- On Henrik starting, "he has played well and like I mentioned yesterday, he has a real special relationship with our fans and to do this here at home is something special for him and our team and we will try everything we can for him to get this done."
- On Henrik and goalie schedule, "I was going game by game, I have an idea big picture also, like I have mentioned a few times, but he has played real well. He has felt good about his game and he is playing tonight."
