If there were a sight stranger than the Rangers actually on the ice for their first sanctioned team practice after all these months of being locked out, it was Marian Gaborik lining up on the left side.

And as Gaborik told The Post, thatís where he anticipates opening the season Saturday night in Boston after an 11-year NHL career spent all but exclusively on right wing.

ďTorts [coach John Tortorella] told me thatís where heíd like to see me, so Iím going to prepare and practice at left wing,Ē said Gaborik, whose 41 goals last season were third most in the NHL behind Steven Stamkosí 60 and Evgeni Malkinís 50.
