Tortorella pretty much explained why Richards was being scratched. He needed an "*******" 4th line to go up against the Bruin 4th line, a role Richards is not equipped to play. So, which other center should sit for 'great person' Brad? Brassard, possibly the Rangers best forward in these playoffs? Stepan, the Rangers best two-way center, and leading goal scorer? Or perhaps Boyle, whom Tortorella trusts defensively as much as any forward on this team, and, who, I might add, has three times as many goals as Richards does in these playoffs? Should he replace Kreider or Hagelin, players who have speed that actually cause pressure on Bruin defenders? Or Pyatt, who is one of the only Ranger forwards winning board battles against the Bruins? Even Zucc has shown more than Richards in terms of skill and determination. Hey, Ron Maclean, thanks for your uninformed and biased opinion.
