If the Florida Panthers need him, Chris Driedger says he is ready to go.
New York Islanders coach Barry Trotz said last week that he had two goalies who he was comfortable starting in the opener of their best-of-five game Stanley Cup qualifier against the Panthers.
Trotz even said that, because the two teams play on consecutive games on Tuesday and Wednesday, that he is thinking about using both of his guys regardless.
Florida coach Joel Quenneville has not said anything of the sort when it comes to his goaltending situation, saying the he is only looking at Game 2 on Tuesday (noon; FS Florida/NBCSN).
Quenneville will worry about Game 3 when Game 2 is over with. Sergei Bobrovsky will start Tuesday and, the safe money is on Bob going in Game 3 as well.
