Same lineup, Lundqvist in goal, McDonagh out, Boyle with Richards and St. Louis tonight as NYR go for playoff clincher vs. OTT.

…so put St. Louis with the two slowest guys on the team? Makes sense. He’s going to enter the offensive zone with the puck tonight and neither Richards nor Boyle will have made the red line.
…while Carcillo playing on the first line isn’t ideal, I liked the lines a lot better with him matched with Stepan & Nash and St. Louis with Richards & Hagelin.
…having said that, AV has led the Rangers to a 7-1-1 record the last nine games, so who am I to question him.
