We got a matinee today against two Eastern Conference teams just barely holding onto their respective playoff spots.

Although the Detroit Red Wings and New York Rangers aren’t currently in direct competition for postseason positions, there’s no question that a loss this afternoon would be a big blow to either squad’s chances.

The game is airing on NBC and can also be viewed via the live stream link below:


It will be worth keeping an eye on Martin St. Louis in particular today. He has just one assist in two games, but now that the former Tampa Bay Lightning captain has had a chance to settle in, he could step up and steal a game for the Rangers. Meanwhile, Detroit will counter with Johan Franzen, who has a league-leading 11 points in five games since the Olympics.

The Rangers won the first two games in their season series, but both contests were decided by just one goal. It wouldn’t be surprising if this turns out to be another close game.

    Can we get new, not incredibly boring and anti-climactic play-by-play?

    Anyone else noticing that there are considerably FEWER penalty calls in nationally televised games on NBC? It’s SO weird that they don’t call blatant penalties when ratings are at stake…

    I hate Gary Bettman so much.
