Rangers coach John Tortorella declined to comment on what his lineup is going to look like Monday night in the event that rookie winger Carl Hagelin is suspended. But for what it’s worth, here’s what it looked like during Sunday’s practice. Starting Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist was given the day off.
Carl Hagelin-Brad Richards-Marian Gaborik
Brandon Dubinsky-Artem Anisimov-Ryan Callahan
Brandon Prust-Brian Boyle-Ruslan Fedotenko (Chris Kreider)
Mike Rupp-Derek Stepan-John Mitchell (John Scott)
Ryan McDonagh-Dan Girardi
Michael Del Zotto-Anton Stralman
Marc Staal-Stu Bickel

• Again, for what it’s worth, Fedotenko was moved up with Richards and Gaborik while Hagelin was having his hearing with the NHL.
• According to the team’s official website, defenseman Steve Eminger skated for the first time in a long time since injuring his ankle. He did not address reporters, however.
• So will the animosity from Game 2 carry over into Game 3?
“I think so. This is the playoffs,” Dubinsky said. “You need to have that level of intensity. We’ll be ready to play.”
