The contest is now closed. No more entries. Hopefully one of youse got the score right this time.
End of a three-game homestand. Ya boys haven’t lost two in a row since Dec. 13-15, which is quite remarkable, actually. Interesting next few days with Philly, Washington and Chicago coming up, so the Rangers need to pay attention tonight. But they have kind of shown us that they’re pretty good after a (regulation) loss (6-2-2 by my calculations), and that they don’t really look ahead.
Steve Eminger (shoulder) returns on defense, his first game since Dec. 17. Stu Bickel therefore will be prucha’d. Martin Biron starts in goal.
It’ll be interesting to see if the Lightnings are still mad about Artem Anisimov’s Elmer Fudd impersonation. They should be thankful that Brendan Shanahan dared not suspend Steve Downie for leaving the bench to join an altercation. Why? No idea.
