Storylines: The last three meetings between the Rangers (Game 1, two in the regular season) have gone to overtime. Given the styles of both teams, that streak could continue today… Rick Nash enters Game 2 with an 0-3—3 playoff line. The Rangers need far more from Nash, their top-line right wing. Nash didn’t have the puck much in Game 1. The Rangers will look to give Nash the puck more today… On the other end, Tyler Seguin has a 0-1—1 line through eight playoff games. Seguin hasn’t shown any signs of breaking out offensively… The Bruins are scheduled to practice tomorrow before departing for New York prior to Game 3 on Tuesday… Chris Lee and Dan O’Halloran will be the referees. Steve Barton and Pierre Racicot will be the linesmen.
