The Rangers are making "progress" in discussions to re-sign backup goalie Martin Biron, according to ESPN NY's Katie Strang.
The solid numbers (12-6-2 with a 2.46 goals-against average and .904 save percentage) don't tell the entire story for the 34-year-old. Biron was extremely valuable to the Rangers because he allowed them to give Henrik Lundqvist rest throughout the season. While playing in his fewest games, 62, since his rookie year, Lundqvist had his best season. Biron will most likely seek a raise over the two-year deal that paid him an average of $875,000 a season.
