Rangers-Devils Game 5. Ya boys are 1-1 in Game 5s, and have won both series anyway. Expecting some changes for the Rangers tonight. Brandon Prust returns from his suspension, and it looks as if Stu Bickel goes back on defense for Steve Eminger. Whether Brandon Dubinsky (or Mats Zuccarello, or…

297 Prust goes back in; Dubinsky, Zuccarello or Newbury too?

Brandon Dubinsky, Mats Zuccarello and Kris Newbury all skated with the big team at the morning skate, and John Tortorella said that Brandon Prust will return from his suspension and that there could be additional changes to the lineup tonight. But anybody who’s guessing what those changes might (or might…

233 Rangers-Devils Game 4 in review

Thoughts: 1) If John Tortorella and Ryan Callahan and company can’t figure out the slow starts and what the coach called “the yips” with the puck, I sure as hell can’t. 2) Too bad for Callahan to have a loss like that on a day when he became a dad.…

119 Brandon Prust will miss Game 4 with a one-game suspension

Brendan Shanahan’s dart hit “1” on the dartboard. I’m not saying Brandon Prust shouldn’t have been suspended, because he did after all elbow Anton Volchenkov in the head (and I wonder if they’ve managed to scrape Volchenkov off the ice yet). I am saying that what Prust did was not…

Thoughts: 1) I am going to start off with the Brandon Prust elbow to the head of Anton Volchenkov, only because there’ve been so many such incidents in these playoffs and I want to be consistent, since I’ve pretty much led with all of them throughout. I thought Prust reached…
