The Rangers will go with the same lineup tonight, which means Brashear is scratched due to soreness, not Prucha’d (healthy scratch).
Expect mucho line-juggling after the two straight losses, and the struggles of the second-liners, Drury, Callahan and Higgins (although the captain somehow escapes being singled out by the coach).
I think Drury-Kotalik, which apparently will be one of the starting groups with Avery, is interesting. And Callahan and Dubinsky together could cause problems.
I also expect Gomez to show up big-time tonight. Like he did against the Devils. Especially since he was salary-dumped.
Nothing new at Yankee Stadium. It’s raining. They’re waiting to decide on the game. I’m sitting here.
