Rangers Change Lines Again Heading Into Flyers Tilt

Apparently winning three in a row or even the lines that helped the comeback in the third period Thursday was not enough to stop John Tortorella from making wholesale changes to the line combinations.


Certainly have no problem with putting Fedotenko, Boyle and Prust back together but Christensen is being stuck back with Gaborik for yet another chance while once again having done nothing during actual play. The combination of Step, EC and Gabby also does not strike me as a great one against he physical Flyers game as there is no one on the line to protect any of them.  Thought the third period combinations of Dubinsky, Anisimov, Gaborik on one line and Frolov, Drury, Stepan worked well the other night and would have gone with them.  Also after playing two very good games in his first two back I do not see the purpose of putting Drury on the fourth line.
