Just passed a place called The Press Gallery, and it wasn't a bar. Dry cleaners. Oh, Canada.
Just the facts, man, just the facts.
Henrik Lundqvist gets his sixth consecutive start tonight here in Edmonton against Nikolai Khabibulin. Same NYR lineup except for one change: Brendan Bell is in for Jeff Woywitka, because Oilers are a fast team and Bell is quicker, Torts says.
Lines: Stepan-Richards-Gaborik; Dubinsky-Anisimov-Callahan; Prust-Boyle-Fedotenko; Rupp-Christensen-Newbury
D-Pairs: McDonagh-Girardi; Del Zotto-Erixon; Bell-Eminger
Wojtek Wolski and Woywitka are "healthy scratches" says Torts; Sauer, day-to-day. Woywitka needs to work on conditioning, he says, and is watching tape. "He hasn't been dreadful," Torts says. Talk about damned with faint praise.
More quotes from Torts, Renney, Lundqvist, Bell, others coming up....
