Avalanche next NYR test; live chat Tues at 2 p.m.

 

               No game-day skate for the depleted Blueshirts, so according to the head coach's strategy, they should be well-rested and hungry to face Colorado tonight at the Garden with new line combos. We'll check in from there around 4.

              The Avalanche is 3-2, (2-2 on the road), with a minus-2 goal differential (16-18).... Rangers (1-1-1) are even at 13...Last season, Chad Johnson was in the net as the Rangers won 3-1 in Denver on Jan.31; Gaborik had the hatty, Prospal two assists. Not happening tonight....Avalanche last won at MSG in 2005, 2-1

              With the added emphasis on play in the D-zone,  perhaps Henrik Lundqvist won't have to face 35 shots, as he has averaged in the first three games (36,32,38)

             We've scheduled our FWC (Fabulous Weekly Chat) for tomorrow at 2. Please jump in.  I try to roll at about 45 rpm rather than 33, and answer between 45 and 50 questions in the hour.

            Besides Yankees-Rangers, which pretty much trumps everything tonight, some intruiging games on the NHL sked, as Leafs host Isles, and 4-0 Dallas faces 3-1 Tampa, although Lecavalier apparently doubtful.

            Stimulus blues? I nominate Guitar Shorty's "Please Mr. President"....
