Rangers close a back-to-back for the fourth time this season. They haven’t lost in regulation in any of the seven games in that situation this year (3-0-1 in the first; 2-0-1 in the second). They are 23-8-3 in the second game of back-to-backs since 2009-10.
Erik Christensen goes back into the lineup after being prucha’d for eight straight games. Sean Avery is prucha’d. Henrik Lundqvist in goal. Otherwise, same lineup. Brandon Dubinsky will start on left wing with Christensen and Brandon Prust. Ruslan Fedotenko returns to the left of Brad Richards and Ryan Callahan.
At least at the start.
WE HAVE A WINNER (we think). Genghis Tron nailed the contest by predicting the 4-1 score, the game-winning goal by Callahan and was closest in the first tiebreaker, Rangers shots (he said 29, the Rangers had 33). Ulfie also had 4-1, Callahan and had 28 Rangers shots.
Before we make it official, I want to give a chance for anybody who thinks I may have missed a better entry to speak now or forever hold your peace. If you think you won, e-mail me at email@example.com.
Genghis, once we make it official, I need you to e-mail me, also, with your address so we can send you the tickets.
