Well, one day after Petr Prucha declines a conditioning assignment in Hartford, he puts in the game tying goal with under six minutes remaining in the third. For those who missed it, Prucha, who was one of the best Rangers on the ice during the game, buried the puck after it caromed off the boards from a Gomez shot.
Considering his effort and production today, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him playing tomorrow night in Montreal as well. Maybe all he needed was some playing time.
Then again, I wouldn’t be surprised if he sits in Montreal. But that’s a whole other topic I don’t want to get into right now.
