Montana is probably the size of Europe! ESPN America in Europe is showing damn College Basketball (no one in Europe cares! hello!!!) instead of hockey these days... blows...
I facepalm every morning when I go to look at the listings for the nights hockey... I can't believe they think anyone in Europe cares about US College B'ball. They've not even been showing NBC's GOTW for the past couple of weeks.
Another interesting angle to this game is that Tort's Bolts were stymied by the Sens in recent years, and he seemed particularly frustrated about that match-up when interviewed. As a commentator on TSN, Torts would explain the Sens' 2008 collapse as a lack of "swagger." I have a feeling we'll see Torts get extra yelly during any anxious moments, unless the Rangers get a big lead early.
I would think Lundquist stays in goal for the remainder of the season.
Every game is a must win affair. Maybe, if a playoff position is decided in the final game or two, Vally comes in to give Henrik a rest.
Henrik Lundqvist will start in goal tonight when the Rangers host the Senators (31-30-10) at 7 p.m. at Madison Square Garden. John Tortorella will use the same lineup as his did last night in the 5-3 win over the Sabres.
Senators are much more beatable on the road than at home. Not much scoring except form the top line. Everybody else checks. Don't get outworked and don't take bad penalties. Hopefully Gomez will be up for this.
The Sens are something of an enigma since Clouston took over. If recent trends keep up, the Rangers have to avoid taking penalties, because both power play units are deadly at the moment, and aside from the big three, they have to keep an eye out for Mike Comrie, Ryan Shannon and Nick Foligno. They've been providing some good offense over the past little while.
