Some pre-game warmup action. Boyle had words with Jon Sim … I’m told that happens every single time they play … Avery yapping at Zenon Konopka, who shoved him. Avery responded with a jab. Every time Boogaard stepped in it broke up. And ex-Isle Marty Biron played peacekeeper.
Same lineup as Opening Night:
Prucha’d: Gilroy, White, Kennedy.
(I wonder if Mr. Boogaard might get his first “action” as a Ranger today … or if anybody would be interested in pairing off with him and tossing hands?).
