With all the Rangers forwards finally healthy and Mats Zuccarello playing like his NHL life is on the line (it is), the Rangers have 14 forwards for just 12 spots. John Scott is obviously one scratch, but John Tortorella had an interesting decision last night and he decided that Ruslan Fedotenko was going to be the other healthy scratch. Here's his reason why (via Newsday).....
Yesterday John Tortorella went on the Michael Kay Radio Show (ESPN Radio 1050) and said if the playoffs started today Mats Zuccarello would be in the Rangers line-up....it was only a few months ago when Zuccarello was buried in Hartford with rumors swirling about him wanting to be traded. Now the guy is basically penciled in the starting line-up for the playoffs. Amazing.Tortorella...
Come playoff time, it’s not about how you win games, but rather if you win games. The New York Rangers were not at the top of their game tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Air Canada Centre, but at the end of the night they found a way to earn a huge two points in the standings to claim first place in the National Hockey League. You can complain all you want about their...

It was one of the toughest remaining games for the Sabres on the year, but Buffalo met the challenge head on and dominated the New York Rangers 4-1 at MSG.

Entering the night Buffalo had lost their first three match-ups against New York on the season – the last two being overtime...
The hockey helmet saved Dubinsky on this play.
While the Rangers were very unlucky to lose Mats Zuccarello to a season ending broken wrist last night, one player must have felt he had a little leftover Luck O' the Irish as Brandon Dubinsky came within inches of a devestating facial injury......and that's why you wear a helmet folks. Hope Dubi gave his helmet a big kiss after the game because that had radical reconstructive...
