Unlike the Flyers’ practice this morning, John Tortorella and the Rangers had no surprises after Rangers practice today.
Tortorella said that he’ll be going with the same lineup the Rangers have been rolling with lately and that Henrik Lundqvist would get the start in goal. The one issue that may come up tomorrow is the health of Ryan McDonagh.
McDonagh left the ice before practice feeling a bit under the weather. Tortorella says McDonagh is feeling fine, however and that he’ll be ready to go tomorrow afternoon.
After seeing the mayhem that ensued with Philadelphia this morning thanks to Ilya Bryzgalov, having the Rangers do things so straightforward and no-nonsense sets things up nicely to have it be a true battle of opposite personalities.
