It’s already an established fact that Marty Biron is, for want of a better word, awesome. Not only is he one of the best back-up goaltenders in the league, but he’s dynamite in front of a camera too.
As part of his video diaries for Blueshirts United, Biron has been showing us around the Rangers’ MSG Training Center in a series of posts that kicked off on Monday. He’s already covered the Equipment Room and the Locker Room, so be sure to keep an eye on Blueshirts United for further videos over the coming days.
