Jesse Spector at The Blueshirts Blog spoke with Erik Christensen after this morning’s optional practice about the surging 9th place Carolina Hurricanes…
“What can we do?” Christensen said. “I guess it’s what we expected. It’s not gonna be easy. It forces us to play well again tonight, and forces us to play really well again on Saturday. There’s nothing we can do about it.”
Earlier in the day Spector tweeted that in the last 10 games the Rangers, Sabres and Hurricanse all have the identical 7-2-1 record.
At the optional skate were Christensen, Matt Gilroy, Vinny Prospal and Michael Sauer, the rehabbing Chris Drury and Chad Johnson.
