Pretty simple: Magic Number is 3.
Get three points, and they’re in. Get two points tonight and Carolina has to win out and get help (a Devils regulation win Saturday). And, despite terrible injury to Callahan, let’s try to remember that this team just beat Philadelphia and Boston back to back and is 10-3-1 in its last 14 overall and 5-0-1 in its last six at home.
No pruchas tonight. Rangers have 20 healthy bodies. So same lineup, other than Callahan out and Gilroy in on the wing, and possibly some D.
Awards ceremony pre-game, at approximately 7:06 p.m. Including the Steve McDonald Extra Effort award (wonder if Prust or Callahan wins it; either is a great choice) and the team MVP award (got to be the goalie, no?).
Details on the Boneheads weekend festivities, two threads down. Hope it’s not too strenuous to scroll down that far.
