It’s Go Time!

And the last game before the trade deadline, Monday at 3 p.m.
Ya boys have lost two in a row (0-1-1) and three of their last four (two in regulation). They haven’t gone three without a win since the first three games of the season … you remember that, right? The pending disaster. Fire the coach. Trade everybody. Etc.
The Rangers go with the same lineup as last night’s game on the Island, except with Henrik Lundqvist in goal. Steve Eminger and Jeff Woywitka will be prucha’d, and of course Wojtek Wolski is permanently de-prucha’d, having been dealt to Florida for a third-round 2013 pick and a minor-league defenseman earlier today.
The Baby Buffaloes are stuck in 11th place in the East at NHL-.500, 27-27-7, (which means, actually, 27-34) despite a three-game winning streak. The last time they played the Rangers was that 0-0 tie, followed by a Breakaway Contest After the Hockey Game Ends (BCATHGE), in which the Rangers were successful on one more scrimmage-speed breakaway than the Baby Buffaloes.
I’m sure youse all saw today————> in that widget over there————> that Rick Nash’s agent wants a deal done now, and has threatened that Nash will not change the teams to which he will agree to be traded in the off-season. Which, I think, turns the screws on the Blue Jackets and Scott Howson quite a bit. And I’m sure cagey Glen Sather isn’t blinking in his poker game. Interesting stuff.
