Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that Brandon Dubinsky (lower body) made the trip to Washington and was seen in the Rangers' room without any apparent casts/wraps/crutches/bandages/etc....that's actually very encouraging. Especially after the pic I posted of Dubi in the foot cast from the other day.Gross also reports that Mats Zuccarello skated with his teammates in warm-ups this morning but left before any drills began.Zuccarello said he's been skating about a week but there's still no timetable for his return. He's due to have an X-ray on his wrist when the team returns to New York after Game 4....have to assume if the Rangers make it to the next round, Zuccarella will be ready to go.Gross also spoke with Stu Bickel, who Tortorella said will be fine, about his crucial turnover in Game 2..."I don't even want to talk to you about it. I'm not talking about it because I'm not focusing on it."...looks like Bickel is taking lessons from...

Will The Rangers Have Any Gas Left?

from Bob McKenzie of TSN, The big money guys came through for the New York Rangers in the end as they beat the Washington Capitals 2-1 in triple overtime.

Gaborik Joins OT Heroes

from Mike Vaccaro of the NY Post, Hockey fans don’t need much in the way of reference points; surnames will do just fine. There isn’t a Rangers fan who was alive on the evening of May 27, 1994, who needs anything other than the word “Matteau” to summon time, place, who they were with, what they were drinking, what they were screaming. Go back a few years. If you’re old...

Conditioning, conditioning, conditioning

During last night’s thrilling triple overtime win over the Capitals, the Rangers appeared to look gassed at several points through the first and second overtimes. I say “appeared” because once the third overtime rolled around, the Rangers either found a second wind, or just had more stamina and gas in the tank than the Caps, and it showed. The Rangers thoroughly dominated the...
