Shanahan In, Betts Out

Sam Weinman at The Rangers Report writes...

"So much for resting players. Brendan Shanahan will go back in alongside Scott Gomez and Sean Avery. Petr Prucha will go back to the fourth line with Fred Sjostrom and Ryan Hollweg, and Henrik Lundqvist will get another start in net.

The lone holdout is Blair Betts, who Tom Renney said wants to return, but needs another day of conditioning. Betts is likely for Sunday."

...wouldn't have minded Shanahan sitting these last two days to keep him fresh for the playoffs. But whose to argue, Shanahan obviously knows his body and wants to give it a go.

...hopefully, Betts will be ready for Sunday as I'd like to see him get some game action before the playoffs.

i agree they should rest Shanny. I actual think Prucha has played pretty good since being inserted back into the lineup. One of these days the puck is gonna start going in for him .
