Huet to start Thursday in Columbus

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Cristobal Huet will start for the first time since coming down with the flu last week against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday.

Huet battled the flu all last week and hasn't played since the Philadelphia Flyers rallied to beat the Hawks on March 13.

With Huet out, Antti Niemi has been very impressive, shutting out the Phoenix Coyotes and the Los Angeles Kings. It appeared as if Niemi had seized the No. 1 spot for the playoffs, but Quenneville is yet to officially give the nod to one of them.

Quenneville did shed some light Wednesday on a possible timetable for his decision.

"As we go down a short number of games -- we have 10 left -- that five or inside of five I think it might be clear (and) you might go with one guy," Quenneville said. "We want both guys confident in the net and we want both guys playing well. They both deserve an opportunity to keep playing and keep getting a chance to be the guy."
