Two Eastern Conference Playoff Games On The NHL Schedule Today

John Tortorella plans to make some adjustments to the Rangers...

When asked if any significant adjustments were necessary following the Rangers' 3-2 overtime loss in Game 1, he conceded that some changes were needed. But he made an important distinction that piqued curiosity about what those might be.

"To me, it’s not so much on the ice," Tortorella said. "There’s some other adjustments we have to go through. I’m not gonna tell ya, but there are some other adjustments we have to go through and a lot of it really isn’t on the ice." 

When pressed further about the nature of these "adjustments," Tortorella declined to elaborate. 

"Don’t start pushing me on that," he said. "I really don’t want to talk too much about it."

more from Katie Strang of ESPN...

Meanwhile, the Ottawa Senators will have Jason Spezza in the lineup today, his first game back from injury since January 27th.

Will he provide the spark the Senators need to get back in the series or will the Penguins go up 3-0 tonight?

Not even sure if Spezza’s gonna make any kind of difference when the Sens appear to be so overmatched, but here’s hoping it’ll be enough to make it a series.

Ryan Callahan’s got some wheels.  And he’s a righty, too.

LMAO.  Just less than 45 seconds into the third period, it’s now 4-2 BOS.  Far from over, but man, you can just feel the wind get taken out of NYR.  They needed a forceful start to the third and they looked like they didn’t even try.

Heh.  Lundqvist makes an awesome save on a redirect and not one Ranger tapped him on the pads for a great save.  What is the matter with that team???

5-2 BOS winners over NYR.

Rangers are gonna lose this series a lot sooner than expected if they cannot get a decent game plan together.
