With two games remaining the rangers will have Nash and Staal out of the lineup and will inser Bourque and Summers. With the President’s Trophy and home ice locked up, now is the time to rest a couple top players. This is Zuccarello’s second straight game off but there is nothing to worry about.
This time of year all players have bumps and bruises. And given what the Rangers have accomplished, resting some top players will be beneficial because they are in it for the long haul.
