Strudwick a Possibility in Game 3

Sam Weinman at the Rangers Reports notes...

"Christian Backman was swapped out of in favor of Jason Strudwick in defensive pairings today; and that Paul Mara had taken Backman’s place alongside Michal Rozsival on the power play."

...I have no problem with this move as Backman has been pretty bad during the entire playoffs. Plus, I think we all remember Strudwick's game winning overtime goal against the Penguins earlier this year. So good karma could be in order. God knows we need some.

...having Strudwick in the line-up also gives us some toughness with both Orr and Hollweg in the press box.
