Welcome to Saturday, folks!
Between the weird post-Thanksgiving malaise, the game on Friday, and an early start today, we are skipping a full preview and going right to the Public Skate.
It’s the Bruins! It’s the Rangers! It’s in Manhattan!
The Rangers also played on Friday, a 3-1 win in Philadelphia, so both teams are making the relatively short jaunt to NYC.
Igor Shesterkin played in that one for the Rangers, meaning the B’s will likely see the resurgent Jonathan Quick today.
He’s a humble 5-0-1 on the season, with a 1.68 GAA and .940 save percentage, so...not bad for the back-up!
James van Riemsdyk should return to the lineup today after a maintenance day on Friday. Linus Ullmark should be between the pipes.
