Pregame: Line combinations for Rangers, Devils
John Tortorella wouldn't reveal his line combinations before the game, but perhaps pregame warmups will let us know what the Rangers have in store.

During line rushes, it looked like this:

Prospal-Anisimov-Gaborik
Dubinsky-Stepan-Fedotenko
Wolski-Boyle-Prust
Zuccarello-Christensen-Drury

Staal-Girardi
McDonagh-Sauer
McCabe-Gilroy

And since there is another team involved in the game, here's a look at the Devils lines:

Kovalchuk-Zajac-Palmieri
Rolston-Elias-Tedenby
Zharkov-Josefson-Clarkson
Pelley-Steckel-Mair

Tallinder-Fayne
Salmela-Greene
Fraser-Leach

The goaltenders, obviously, will be Henrik Lundqvist for the Rangers and Martin Brodeur for the Devils.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
