According to Larry Brooks at the New York Post, John Tortorella has declined to announce the starting goaltender for tonight.
…gamesmanship from Torts.
Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that the Rangers will go with the same line-up against the Penguins tonight meaning both Ryan Callahan (foot) and Michael Del Zotto (hip) remain out.
Gross adds that Henrik Lundqvist is participating in the morning skate but the Rangers have not indicated if he’s going to start.
…starting to get a little panicky about Cally and MDZ. Let’s hope team is just being cautious with a six point lead over Pens.
…just have to hope Hank is in there and team can rally around injuries.
