Hey, we know the Rangers haven’t had a lot of luck with understudies this year, but this is an opportunity. Backup goalie Dan Ellis starts in place of 6-foot-5 Pekka Rinne, who I am pretty sure the Rangers have never seen before and who is pulling a Lundqvist and sitting out with some sort of ailment.
Good story in Nashville about Steve Sullivan, the ex-Devil who missed 142 games over almost two years with a back injury and has recently returned as the Preds make their playoff push.
But I’m not going to go into all the this-and-thats while the pregame show is on, because, well … I don’t know why.
You ask for it, you got it here on the (Festivus) blog. You wanted a separate post pregame, here it is. Now do your thing below. I’ll check in during the game.
