Blue Notes

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.

Morning from MSG....Same lineup for NYR vs Caps

Henrik Lundvist will be in net and D Stu Bickel presumably will skate on right wing, as was the case yesterday in Philadelphia. Rusland Fedotenko (no surprise), still out after Dom Moore's hit....

Front office really in no hurry to bring Wojtek Wolski back from AHL, huh?

Just looking ahead: Assuming the Rangers finish in the top four in the East, they will have home-ice advantage in the first round. But the Knicks have home games on April 13, 15, and 17. So the Rangers would likely play at MSG Thursday the 12th and Saturday the 14th and Games 3 and 4 would be on the road the following week.

More coming in a few....
