Bruins 4, Rangers 3. Click here for the boxscore with links to the game summary, etc. Thoughts: 1) You can put aside this game, and even the last one, as awful as they were — a poor game by the coaching staff, goalie, top line, second line, entire panicky defense…

18 Rangers at Bruins today (1 p.m.) … pre-game notes

FYI, it looks like Emerson Etem and Dylan McIlrath will go back into the lineup, in place of Viktor Stalberg and Dan Boyle (who isn’t playing back-to-backs, at least for the immediate future). It sure can’t hurt to have McIlrath’s size in the lineup against the Bruins, and Zacwagon Rinaldo.…
