Staal, Powe Skate Again; Clowe Doesn’t; Same Line-up

The two also did bag skates with the taxi players after practice, but neither will play in Game 3 tonight. Ryane Clowe did not skate, so the line-up will remain the same as Game 2.

Here's Powe on his recovery from his second concussion this season (via Bergen Record)…

“I feel good. It’s good to back on the ice and skating with the guys.It’s a few days of skating and I felt pretty good, so I’m just trying to keep skating, working out and trying to get back in the lineup."

…until I hear that Staal is feeling more comfortable with his vision, his skating on a daily basis means nothing.

…Rangers will continue to miss both Staal and Clowe in this series and will have a very difficult time climbing back into this series without them. I feel like a broken record with those two.

As far as the Bruins go, it looks like they're going to stick with the three rookies on defense…

…with how poised Bartkowski, Krug and Hamilton have been I'm almost begging for Redden, Seinberg and Ference to come back. Only hope is that they're somehow rattled by MSG crowd tonight. Although Redden would likely be more of a candidate to be thrown off by the Garden Faithful the way he was when he was wearing a Blueshirt.
