In Maclean's post game he said "im disgusted with him and he knows why"

The MSG crew speculated that something may have gone on in practice with Kovy talking back to Maclean, remind you this is not fact.

I could certainly see this being the issue as Maclean is a new coach and if Kovy was the one to talk back to him he was likely showing the rest of the guys that its a team and no one is above anyone else ESPECIALLY when there playing so poorly. Pure speculation but seems like the best guess right now

Extremely strange, and some what stupid. They were coming off of a pretty big 3-0 win. I'd understand it a little more (stil not much) if thye lost but come on. Yesterday was a big game and they played it without their best forward for no apparent reason. Mac is losing a lot of of trust from the fans.

If they come out skating hard, hitting hard and generally creating chaos for Marty and Kovy, they should be able to win or at least play a real close game. Both the goalie and the prime scoring threat for the Devils have serious problems keeping their cool against Avery and the Rangers. I expect Avery and the rest of the team to take full advantage of whatever self consciousness and/or frustration the Devils show as a team and try to get them to beat themselves.

Should be a good one.

As a result of the high stick Brandon Prust took last night above the right eye from the Bruins’ Gregory Campbell, the Rangers will bring up RW Jeremy Williams from Hartford (AHL) as a precaution.

The Rangers have not ruled out Prust for tonight’s game yet.

Rangers coach John Tortorella will meet with the media around 5.

We already beat the soon to be stanley cup champion Maple Leafs, so anything is possible.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a bad feeling about tonight's game. Lets pray Kovy is scratched again. If he's in the Devil line-up, expect him to come out like gangbusters.

To be honest I thought he said the same thing (I know now he didn't), and was trying to figure out what the hell could have disgusted him, lol.

thats actually one of the rumored explanations for kovalchuk being scratched. they felt the rest of the team was sitting around waiting for kovy to do everything instead of playing as a team

LGR! Avery is going to knock Kovy off his game like he always does when they face off. Stepan is gunna step up with a multi point night and Cally is going to score atleast one. that is my prediction

MaClean should know better than to get in a fight with Kovalchuk, because he is much easier to be fired than Kovy.

Mac has a coach just waiting to take the reigns if he goes down. Kovalchuk is a Devil for life.

So quite honestly its a bad Bluff of a set of balls by Mac if the info is true. -

Kovy is going to be a monster tomorrow. MacLean is all talk, there is no way in hell he doesn't play Kovalchuk tomorow. It's like last season when Ovechkin and like 12 other superstars made week early returns for the Rangers and played like hall of famers.

Sorry, just frustrating never watching a Rangers game without shaking my head in awe at their stupidity.
Seriously if that's the only things you saw the last 2 games, which were regulation wins by the way, then there's nothing to discuss. But nice talking points.

sometimes teams play better when the star is out...and sitting kovy to send a message to the rest of the team would be like pulling the goalie when its not the goalies fault in hopes of sparking the team

of course this is just one theory i've seen. they also could have been bench kovy because of something he did
