Prust Good to Go Tonight; Montoya Questionable (Updated)

Update, 12:25 p.m.:
Spector says based on yesterday’s practice expect an Avery-Stepan-Zuccarello line tonight.

…pretty pumped to see that line. Should be a fun line to watch.

Update, 12:17 p.m.:
Boogaard tells Steve Zipay that while it was great to be skating again today it’ll be tough for him to come back this season.

Meanwhile, Wolski is disappointed to be a healthy scratch tonight.

Update, 11:34 a.m.:
Jesse Spector tweets that both Wojtek Wolski and Matt Gilroy were skating laps after practice meaning they are most likely scratches tonight.

…if this is the case, I’ve got to say I’m shocked Torts would mess with the lineup that defeated the Sharks.

…having said that it’s not like Wolski and Gilroy have been lighting the world on fire lately and I think Avery could thrive in a game like this.

Original Post:
Andrew Gross at Rangers Rants reports that Brandon Prust says he is good to go tonight against the Islanders.

Neither Prust nor Sean Avery were at this morning’s skate. However, Derek Boogaard was.

…got to assume a second straight healthy scratch for Avery. Too bad, does anyone remember how effective him and Gaborik were against the Isles earlier this year?

…nice to see Boogaard progressing. We probably won’t see him this year, but he’ll be back next season. With the beating Prust has been taking by fighting larger opponents I feel that there is still a need for Boogaard on this team.

Al Montoya is questionable for tonight’s game after suffering cramps after his last start against the Devils.
