Round 1, Game 7: Rangers at Caps, DO OR DIE

Well, there’s not much else to say about the impending Game 7 tonight. The Rangers have blown a 3-1 series lead, and have looked downright awful in doing so. Betts was beheaded, and Brashear was suspended.

As per Zipay, Anisimov is in tonight, as expected, with Betts out and Brashear suspended. The need for the center now outweighing the need for two enforcers. Aaron Voros is also in tonight, meaning Colton Orr is the odd man out. I don’t know how I feel about Voros playing and Orr sitting. Usually I’d want Orr in, but with Brashear out, you can argue that Voros has more offensive upside than Orr, so Voros should be in. But you can also argue that Voros is incredibly slow, and at least Orr can skate better. I guess it’s a wash when you think about it.

Game time is 7pm on MSG and Versus.

    I think Torts is disrespecting Orr by sitting him tonight. Think about this…Orr played every single regular season game this year, and now with the season on the brink, Orr won’t be a part of it, seems unfair.

    He’s earned a spot more than the ghost of Zherdev has.

    Either way, the lineups are set, let’s get the puck on the ice and play.
