Katie Strang of ESPNNewYork.com has a story on New York Rangers center Brad Richards as he prepares to face his former Dallas Stars teammates Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden. The story begins:
Loui Eriksson and Brenden Morrow will be among the cadre of close friends and former teammates Brad Richards faces for the first time with the New York Rangers in Tuesday's match against the Dallas Stars.
But despite the bonds forged in Richards' three-plus seasons with the Stars, there will be no fraternizing on the ice.
"It's tough. It's tough to leave when you create those friendships with your teammates," Richards said. "[But] they're coming in and I want to beat 'em."
