Here’s the lineup:
Not sure if Staal and Girardi will play together. Eminger moves up in Rozsival’s spot. Gilroy goes in on the third pair with Sauer.
Lundqvist is a late scratch with some sort of illness. Biron starts in goal. Boogaard is prucha’d.
Added treat: Pat LaFontaine as an analyst on MSG tonight. One of the all-time great guys in hockey. Never played an NHL game without New York license plates on his car.
Just had the awesome pleasure of meeting our great friend, ilb. He bought me that seltzer he’d been promising. Probably cost him $7. What a wonderful guy.
