It’s Go Time! … Canadiens at Rangers

Game 15. [2]
Canadiens at Rangers.

The Rangers 4-0-1* in their last five (asterisk = they lost one of those games, but it doesn’t count as [3] a loss, even though they won of those games in the same fashion and that counts as a win—only in the Bettman Bonus Points for Losing system) close out a three-game homestand.

The big news broke a little after 5 p.m. when the Rangers announced that Rick Nash will not play tonight. Since they (read: John Tortorella) don’t discuss injuries all of a sudden, we can only guess that he has a concussion or the flu or an injury … or that he’s a healthy scratch (yeah, right).

But feel free to speculate, because that’s what they create when they don’t tell … and what they also will create is a contest among the reporters around the team to try to find out what it really is … and it will come out eventually. Or at least, in the old days, it would have.

So Chris Kreider, who originally was going to be scratched, is back in and Brandon Mashinter will make his Rangers debut in place of injured Darroll Powe (concussion). Stu Bickel will be prucha’d.

Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal against Carey Price.
