If you were holding out hope that Marian Gaborik really would play, he's not warming up.

Derek Boogaard's supposed to be out for the Wild and he thought he would be out, but Benoit Pouliot is scratched.

There are 14 NYC firefighters attending tonight’s game. They attend one Rangers road game a year, and one of the firemen has a brother-in-law who is the chef at Meritage Restaurant. Some were there during 9/11 and some are some new recruits since then. One of the firefighters headed to an elementary school today for a visit because ever since 9/11, that class has been writing notes to their fire house.

 I'll throw up more later.
