….but I even scarfed down two full plates of some sort of Chinese-influenced chicken, rice, and egg roll concoction here in the Garden press room. So if you see me doubled-over in the press box later, you’ll know why….
Anyway, nothing major to report: Straka is still out, Roberts and Laraque are in for the Pens, and traffic is moving well enough on the West Side Highway.
Also, according to Tom Renney, Brendan Shanahan is still suffering from slight concussion symptoms and has an appointment with the neurologist tomorrow. At best, it sounds like he could be cleared for some cardio workouts, but still isn’t ready to skate.
Naturally, this is a big one tonight, for a variety of reasons. From a purely selfish journalistic standpoint, I’d love to see the Rangers carry some momentum into next week’s home-and-home against the Isles. It would certainly make it fun.
OK, more later…
