Pregame: Line combinations for Rangers, Devils

Saturday, 04.09.2011 / 12:11 PM

By Dave Lozo - NHL.com Staff Writer / Devils-Rangers: A live-blog

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.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
