The Rangers travel up to Montreal to take on Scott Gomez, Paul Mara and the Canadiens. This will be the first time that Gomez and Mara are facing their old team; it’s also the first time Chris Higgins is going back to Montreal.
Dave detailed the new lines and defensive pairings for you, but here they are anyway:
Enver Lisin-Vinny Prospal (remaining at center)-Marian Gaborik
Sean Avery-Chris Drury-Ales Kotalik
Christopher Higgins-Brandon Dubinsky-Ryan Callahan
Donald Brashear/Brian Boyle-Artem Anisimov-Aaron Voros.
It’ll be interesting to see how these new combos work. The Rangers will also have to deal with the “Les Smurfs” line of Gionta, Gomez and Cammalleri, especially with Gomez probably wanting some revenge. Lundqvist is in. Brashear is out. For Montreal, Jarsolav Halak is in goal. Gametime is at 7, on MSG. And now that the Yankee game is postponed, I want full attention on the Blueshirts! Lots of comments tonight! No excuses! Enjoy the game
