First the news. Ryan McDonagh said he’s not worried about his left knee at all. He said it’s an injury he’s had in the past where the kneecap tweaks and there’s some pain but it subsides. He also got the Broadway Hat for the first time this year—hard to believe considering how he’s played and some of the big goals he scored early in the season. John Tortorella thought Brandon Prust (first goal in 49 games) should have gotten it.
Tortorella said there was no update on Ruslan Fedotenko, whose injury still hasn’t been made public, but relented that he thinks Fedotenko will probably make the trip to Boston. And that Stu Bickel at wing is a temporary thing.
