Ya boys come slip-sliding in, with three straight losses (0-2-1), and four in the last five (1-2-2).
They begin a four-game homestand, after which they will have already played 14 of their 24 home games this season. In other words, 17 of their final 27 will be on the road. In other words, these next four are pretty important.
Rick Nash (probable concussion) skated today, but will not play tonight. Neither will Ryan McDonagh (mystery injury, possibly a concussion), Michael Del Zotto (suspected hip) or Arron Asham (back spasms). Dan Girardi (ankle/foot), Marc Staal (not sure why, possibly the flu, but he didn’t skate today) and and Darroll Powe (cleared from concussion) all will play.
Am I forgetting anybody?
I guess that means Stu Bickel and Steve Eminger both play on defense, and Chris Kreider plays up front … so no prucha’s tonight.
Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal against the Jets, who have won three of four on this five-game trip up here from the Southeast. Oh, wait …
Don’t forget to vote in the Three Rangers Stars poll on the left <——————and to follow me on Twitter: @RangersReport.
Not sure if there is going to be a chance to do a live chat this week. Not looking good at all.
That’s the Jets’ WHA logo from 1972-74, above.
