ECF GM2: Rangers seek to grab a 2-0 series lead (TB v NYR 8PM)
The Rangers are ready to go and seize the opportunity to take a commanding 2-0 lead in the series. Most of the Rangers stayed off the ice for the optional skate aside from Martin St. Louis and Derick Brassard.
Tanner Glass who missed practice yesterday will play tonight and Mats Zuccarello skated for the first time on his own. Here’s a look at him on the ice at MSG this morning.
As for the Lightning, Brian Boyle skated today but remains out as reports came out his equipment bag was already packed.You can also expect a more desperate Tampa team, who do not want to go back home in an 0-2 hole.
