Good late morning. I’m trying to wrap up a few things so I can head to MSG for tonight’s game, which should be interesting given all the history, and given what the Rangers did (or didn’t do) Monday, and given the usual Avery-Brodeur and other assorted rivalry stuff that accompanies Rangers vs. Devils.
I’m sure you read yesterday that Mathieu Dandeneault is on a tryout at Hartford. Both Marian Gaborik and Ryan Callahan (flu) are expected to play tonight.
You can see video coverage of last night’s Lester Patrick awards ceremony — Mark Messier and Mike Richter were honored along with Jimmy Devellano — on NHL. com.
Another of the Class of ’94, Adam Graves, takes questions on Rangers Radio with Jim Cerny today at noon.
Here are the official pregame notes for Devils-Rangers tonight.
