Henrik Lundqvist to start tonight for #NYRangers. Boogaard, Grachev in, White and Gilroy the healthy scratches.less than a minute ago via Mobile Web


...love that Grachev is getting a legit chance to show the Rangers what he's got.

Nice, psyched for Grachev to get ice time. Plus he's 6'3", get some size up against Philly.

I like this lineup a lot! Boogaard in to make sure that no one from Philly starts running around. Eminger has been decent and has played very physical. Sauer has been stable on the back end.

Grachev showed me (and everyone else) nothing during the pre-season but in his limited ice time since being called up he's been pretty good. Hard to be spectacular w/ limited time, but he's been solid. I'd much rather keep him in the lineup than Todd White

PC- agree, keep Emmy on the bottom 5-6 pairing and all should be fine. Grachev, given the ice time will begin to feel comfortable and realize that he can play at this level with some adjustments to his game.

Boogaard vs. Shelley... oh man. I'm excited.

Eminger (Emmy-could work) proving to be not so bad...

drafted in the first round in 2004. then again, so were a lot of non-Russian, non-NHL material players. Redemption for Eminger.

sorry, 2002

Grachev totally NOT taking advantage of this op. A big guy playing small & tentatively. take a lesson from Boyle & use the big body.

is this the same grachev who had 2 pts in hartford before being called up.

thought so
