Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that Brandon Prust says that his shoulder is sore but is otherwise ok after being shoved into the boards from behind by Henrique last night.

...Prust is lucky he was able to get his arm up before he went head first into the boards, could have been a devastating injury. Somehow no penalty was called on the play.

Gross also reports that Artem Anisimov is feeling better but there is no update on his availability for tomorrow's game against the Red Wings.

...would be nice to have AA back against Red Wings as the Rangers will need all hands on deck if they want to compete with the perennial power house from Detroit.

Extras: Scott, Fedotenko

Steve Zipay at Newsday reports Fedotenko was in a spare orange jersey.

...Fedotenko has been banged up lately and I'm sure the hit from behind he received from Boulton last night didn't help.

Zipay adds this quote from John Tortorella on Devils coach Peter DeBoer's decision to start his enforcers last night as well as calling the Rangers coach a hypocrite...

"I read it. I think Peter needs to jog his memory about the starting lineups that I put in over in their building and really, basically, just shut up. And I need to also, I'm just...I think the situation last night is disrespectful to players, and I think we took a backwards step. I get put in a position where he puts a lineup like that out, that I'm not sure what's going to happen if I put my top players out, so I had to answer the way I think I have to answer but, really just look at the two lineups and some of the things he's done through the games here. Again, I don't want to coach his team, but just shut up..."

...who tells another team's coach to shutup? God I love Torts sometimes.
