|Can Mike Green's game-winner get him going?|
Stalwart goaltender Henrik Lundqvist will make the start in nets for New York once more. Lundqvist, who has been one of the best goalies in this postseason just as he was in the regular season, has a 1.68 GAA, .944 save percentage, and one shutout in eleven games so far. Outside the crease, New York will be without center Brandon Dubinsky almost certainly; the center has a foot injury and has not played at all in this series. Winger Mats Zuccarello Aasen is also absent with a wrist injury. Even after a loss, expect John Tortorella to keep the same lineup that he has for the last three games.
Braden Holtby, the rookie sensation with the visualization routines and the Hershey accented pads, will continue to get the start in goal from Dale Hunter. Holtby has carried a 1.94 GAA and .933 save percentage in his eleven playoff starts. The Capitals do not currently have any disclosed injuries, and with a win in game four, expect the same lineup from the Washington coaching staff. That means Mattias Sjogren, Mathieu Perreault, and Jeff Halpern will be scratched up front and John Erskine and Dmitry Orlov will remain in the press box among defensemen.
Puck drops for this one 7:41-ish. No recap from me tonight because of school obligations.
