Steve Zipay takes you inside the locker room, home and on the road, with the New York Rangers, and also writes about the NHL, off and on the ice.

Game 2 Preview: Lineup changes coming?


Rangers coach John Tortorella will not disclose his lineup this morning, and not speaking before game here at Verizon Center, so it sounds as if there will be some changes, unless this is just shadow-boxing.

We'll see in warmups, or get some inkling.

But between one and four players could dress for the first time since their injuries:

Forward Ryane Clowe, who has missed two games, but skated yesterday.

Brian Boyle who has missed seven with a right leg injury

Derek Dorsett, broken clavicle, who has missed 14

D Marc Staal who has missed 28 with an eye injury

No matter who plays today, sure sounds as if there will be more decisions for Torts to make before Game 3 on Monday at MSG....
