The lineup remains the same, other than Wojtek Wolski going in for Sean Avery. So here is the probable lineup to start:
Lundqvist in goal.
Gilroy and Avery are prucha’d.
John Tortorella told reporters before the game that he liked the “bite” that Eminger added in his return to the lineup, and noted that he thought Bryan McCabe played his best game as a Ranger upon being paired with Eminger. And that Avery’s three penalties—presumably the third, more than the others—were a factor in his being prucha’d.
