Apparently the John Amirante theory many of you have applied to the Rangers loss in Game 3 is shared by Tom Renney.
“I’m superstitious about a number of things,” the coach remarked, “and that is one of them.”
No truth to the rumor the team will be stowing Amirante on its flight to Pittsburgh for Game 5.
As for the Rangers, they held a team meeting at 11 today, followed by an optional skate, but only Jaromir Jagr and Marek Malik took to the ice. The entire team will skate tomorrow before jetting to Pittsburgh.
In other news:
“They’re getting back to us. It was a penalty of some kind. I don’t know. It has to be a trip, hook, cross-check, whatever,” Renney said.Â “It doesn’t say that in the rulebook at all…Glen can take care of that area and has.”
