6:38PM: Kevin Rooney, not Phil Di Giuseppe will play on the fourth line.
3:34PM: Some of what David Quinn said before tonight’s game (NYR):
- On using Buchnevich and Kreider on the PK, “one of the things I think we have done is be shorthanded from a PK standpoint and to me, if you have an opportunity to pressure and have a PK that can get after people and pressure, you’re going to need more people doing it. Buchnevich had killed a lot of penalties when he played in Russia. We’ve been thinking about using Kreider forever, since we’ve been here, and every time we do it, if something doesn’t go well in the first shift or two, we stop doing it. We are committed to letting it work with Chris, regardless, from a mistake standpoint, that is how he’s going to learn and we’ve got to give him an opportunity to learn on the go and use his speed to his advantage, because I know that if I was a defenseman and I got Chris Kreider coming out at me at the blue line, I’m going to be a little nervous knowing the kind of speed he has. It’s just trying to find ways to get more people involved and be more aggressive and be in people’s faces on the PK.”
