Game 60: Rangers at Buffalo, A Must Win

As of today, the Rangers sit in 5th place in the East, 1 point ahead of the Canadiens, and 2 points ahead of 8th place Buffalo. A loss to Buffalo today drops the Rangers to 6th (at a minimum), with Buffalo leapfrogging over 3 teams to take 5th.

A loss would also stop any momentum built from a well played game against the Islanders on Wednesday.

In a shocking development, Petr Prucha will not be the odd man out tonight. Aaron Voros will sit in the press box, and the Korpedo will return to the lineup after missing a game with an upper body injury, taking Voros’ spot on the Zherdev line.

Hank in net tonight, no surprises there.

It’s a Saturday night, no live blog from me tonight.

Update 6:30pm: With Montreal’s win this afternoon, the Rangers sit in the 6 spot at the moment. A loss tonight drops them to the 7 seed, just 3 points ahead of the 9th place Hurricanes, and 4 points ahead of the 10th place Penguins.

  1. Wow, what’s got into Renney?

    I agree, MUST WIN for the blueshirts tonight. I also think they have to win Sunday also, and at least get 1pt in Toronto.

  2. I think they may be showcasing Prucha for a move. They need to clear cap space when Avery returns, and I don’t think there are any takers for Voros.

  3. Great site for NHL cap info:

    I wonder if anyone would bite on Naslund? A team would probally only owe 1.5 of this season’s salary, and he’s only due 3 million next season. I wonder if he’s someone Columbus would look at?

  4. The cap hit is still $4 million. The cap hit is the average payout of the contract, not what the player is being paid.

  5. Great first period boys! Down 0 – 2….

    This is going to definitely cause me to drink heavily tonight, haha.
