Read: Splitting Up Dan Girardi and Ryan McDonagh Against The Bruins

At Rangers practice yesterday, Andrew Gross noted that Ryan McDonagh was skating with Anton Stralman and that Dan Girardi was skating with Michael Del Zotto.

Girardi told NHL.com yesterday that unlike the Capitals with Alex Ovechkin, the Bruins don’t just have one guy to contain.

The Bruins skated yesterday with a top six of:

  • Milan Lucic, David Krejci, Nathan Horton
  • Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron, Jaromir Jagr

Ryan McDonagh said yesterday that the Rangers may do less line matching in this series, but that the key to defending against the Bruins will be dealing with the depth that they have.
