Greetings from Philadelphia...again...this afternoon

              If you're watching this game on MSG and want to jump in here with comments and observations, feel free...we're open for biz.

              You may have read here and elsewhere that should the Rangers advance to play Washington, Game 1 is expected to be Thursday because the Wizards play Wednesday night. 

            NBC is televising games on Saturday and Sunday, so it is possible that Game 2 will be Saturday with either Detroit, Chicago or Pittsburgh to be broadcast on Sunday. But who knows?  West matchups aren't set.

              And remember to follow me at

             Lines during warmups (Callahan in press box, tells reporters when he woke up he knew he couldn't play)

               Dubinsky-Christensen-Gaborik, Boyle-Drury-Voros, Prospal-Jokinen-Parenteau, Shelley-Anisimov-Prust. D-pairs: Staal-Rosival; Del Zotto-Girardi, Eriksson-Redden
