It’s Go Time!

[1]Game 73. [2]

Start of the Foxwoods Final 10 … ooops, sorry. The sixth of a seven-game homestand (3-2 so far). Ya boys have won one in a row and three of the last five, but are 3-5 in their last eight.

The Winged Wheels are winless in five (0-4-1) and are 1-6-1 in eight.

The Rangers haven’t beaten Motown’s finest since 2003, when Mike Dunham did it, and since Mike Richter’s 3-2 win in Detroit on Jan. 30, 1999, the Rangers are 1-11-1 against the Red Wings. Henrik Lundqvist, who starts in goal, is 0-4-1 against Detroit.

Artem Anisimov (shoulder) returns to the lineup, so Ruslan Fedotenko (along with John Scott, Anton Stralman, Jeff Woywitka and Steve Eminger) will be prucha’d, as Mats Zuccarello has done enough to remain in.

Goalie Jimmy Howard is out with a groin injury, so Ty Conklin and Joey MacDonald are handling the goaltending for the Red Wings.

In case you missed it, Dan Girardi has been nominated for the Masterton Trophy by the New York chapter of the PHWA. Also, interestingly, Matt Cooke and not Sidney Crosby was the Pittsburgh chapter’s nominee. WTB?


I’m going to be a first-intermission guest on the radio again (Bloomberg radio) with Kenny Albert or Dave Maloney, I think. Give us a listen if you can.

Also, still have a few openings for Three Stars volunteers for the final five games or so. Interested? E-mail me at rcarpini@lohud.com
