Game 5. The fifth of a seven-game journey to start the season for your once-beaten, three-losses, NHL-.500 Rangers, who happen to be 1-0 in their last one going into the Saddledome which changes naming sponsors every five minutes.
Most likely the exact same lineup that beat the Riotville Canucks two nights ago. That means Michael Sauer and Wojtek Wolski still injured; Brendan Bell prucha’d. Both Sauer and Wolski are getting close, Wolski thinking Saturday in Edmonton.
I also suspect that Martin Biron gets the start Saturday … unless Henrik Lundqvist pitches another shutout and ends up retaining the Broadway Hat.
Brandon Prust returns to the scene of the thievery; Tim Erixon to the place where he didn’t want to play; the Rangers to the first of two Canadian cities to accept a failed Atlanta team.
