Another night, another test. This one’s big. And, though I’m sure there’s not a single Ranger who would use an excuse, you could easily see them just being wiped out after all the tough minutes they played last night, and playing three in four nights, and so many crucial players playing so many hard shifts.
If they win this one, I’ll be really, really impressed. And I’ve been pretty impressed all year, right from the preseason.
Martin Biron starts in goal. Ryan McDonagh likely plays on defense, though Michal Rozsival (ribcage) will skate in warmups, according to Andrew Gross.
Andrew also attempted to ask John Tortorella about the incident on the bench with Brian Boyle. Tortorella used the “stays in the room” explanation, and added, “Nice try.” He said those things happen all the time on the bench.
