Lundqvist is obviously back in goal, but don’t expect any other major changes. I’ll update when it’s official.
Here are some notes I dug up for your pregame enjoyment:
â€” Rangers were 2-6-2 in 10 games before winning their last two. Jaromir Jagr had just six assists (and no goals) in those 10 games, but he has six points (3-3) in the last two games.
â€” Rangers are 1-3-1 in the second game of a back-to-back this season. Their only win was an OT shootout victory against Philly.
â€” Henrik Lundqvist has given up just five goals in the four previous games after a night off. Two of those four games were shutout victories. (3-1, 1.25 GAA). Good sign maybe?
â€” This will be Marcel Hossaâ€™s eighth straight game off
â€” Interesting note here from someone in the press room. There are six Canadian teams and the Rangers will play five of them in a span of eight days. Something tells me this doesn’t make your boy Sean Avery very happy…Oh, Canada!
