Monday musings: More line tweaks in store for Isles game

First off, the NHL schedule-makers really did a disservice to the Isles, forcing a game tomorrow off the West Coast trip.  Both Isles and Rangers could have played on Wednesday.

Just stopped by practice briefly; Newsday's John Jeansonne covered for me; I had some morning appointments. He'll have quotes and a preview story for ya shortly. I'll have plenty first-hand tomorrow, starting with the morning skate at the Coliseum. I'm thinking Henrik's in net. Just FYI: Rangers have lost four of last five in Uniondale.

I can provide the lines:

Ansimov-Stepan-Gaborik (no change)

Fedotenko-Richards-Avery (new)

Dubi-Boyle-Callahan (the coach says Dubi's a left wing, not a center no more)

Deveaux-Christensen-Prust (no change)

Same D; Anton Stralman needs work on conditioning and systems, the coach said
