Tortorella wouldn’t confirm if those pairings would stay the same in Game 3.
• Rick Nash scored his first goal of the playoffs Sunday, but said he wished he could give it back in exchange for a win.
“I think he’s played well right on through the playoffs,” Tortorella replied when asked why his star winger is seeing so much ice time. “They want (Zdeno) Chara against him, and we’re trying to get away from that at certain times. He’s gonna play a lot. He’s played very well. He scores a goal which is going to help, and we’ll go right back out there with him tomorrow.”
