Ray Whitney didn't end up playing on the top line in Game 2, but coach Lindy Ruff is looking for more from the veteran forward.
"I think Game 1 was a hard game for Ray. Coming off an injury, the level of energy in that game was more than he had seen. There were times he wasn't quite up to pace," Ruff said. "But I would expect more from Ray [Friday]. He's a veteran guy who we think can make those plays." The 41-year-old winger picked up nine goals and 32 points in 69 games during the regular season. He doesn't have a point in two playoff matches so far. Apr 19 - 11:08 AM
