Strudwick in for Mara in tonight's Rangers v. Senators Game
According to Steve Zipay, it looks like Paul Mara will be a healthy scratch tonight against Ottawa. Jason Strudwick will skate along side of Marc Staal as the third defense pairing. Marcel Hossa and Thomas Pock will be the other healthy scratches for the Rangers, and despite some thought about moving him up to the third line, Blair Betts will remain between Colton Orr and Ryan Hollweg. I would personally like to see Hossa back in the lineup on the top line, pushing Avery down to the third line where I think he is better suited, but that would mean losing Dubinski. I would like to see how the kid fairs against a tough opponent first though, so let's see how he does tonight. Back later with more updates.
