Fritsche is playing centre on the PP and taking faceoffs in his own zone on the PK. They've got a rookie defenceman Scott who is 6-foot-8.
That's Lemaire hockey right there. Once they get a lead they'll trap the **** out of you. Grab the lead early and hold on to it. Tortorella seems to get the guys going after a poor effort, hopefully that trend will continue!

3-1 Rangers. Gomez, Avery, Antropov with the goals.
