I have to ask you guys a favor, please. I understand the anxiety in day like today, and I expect it to be a roller-coaster at best, and a complete free-fall at worst.
All I ask is that you please watch the language. Thank you.
Game 82: The captain (0 goals) is back. Mats Zuccarello is in (in case of shootout). Matt Gilroy stays in the lineup, but on defense, where he finished Thursday’s game.
Sean Avery and Steve Eminger are prucha’d.
Guessing Lundqvist in goal. Just kidding. Brodeur for Devils.
You all know the deal. The Rangers are in with a win and a Carolina loss in regulation, overtime or shootout. The Rangers are in with an OT or shootout loss (and a Bettman Bonus Point) and a Carolina loss in regulation.
If the Rangers lose, they’re out. If they get one point and Carolina gets one point, they’re out. If they both win, they’re out.
