SBN BLOG BATTLE: Blueshirt Banter (Rangers) vs In Lou We Trust (Devils)
Some animosity happening in this series now after Brandon Prust did this to Anton Volchenkov in Game 3:
Prust received a 1 game suspension for that. John Torterella didn't like the suspension and Pete DeBoer called Torts' response "comical". Prust said he put his arms up to prevent himself from crashing into the boards. I say bull shit to that. Even if Prust wasn't lying I wouldn't care because...the Rangers are scum. Oh, and Stu Bickel will take Prust's spot in the lineup.
It appears DeBoer will scratch Petr Sykora for Game 4 and insert Jacob Josefson, which has the peeps at In Lou We Trust stoked. Josefson has a lot of potential, but his season was marred by injuries.
Zach Parise is a -4 in the series while Patrick Elias and Ilya Kovalchuk are each a -3.
Rangers' Chris Kreider leads all skaters with 3 goals and 1 assist in the series. Dan Girardi has 2 goals and 2 assists. The highest scoring Devil is Bryce Salvador, with 2 assists. Yeah...
Both Rangers' wins in this series have come via a shutout by Henrik Lundqvist.
Let's Go Devils!
