So arguably the league’s best goalie to date, Ryan Miller, against one of the league’s most impotent offenses, with a new, minor-league flavor, and on a three-game losing streak to close November. Should be interesting.
For the Rangers, Chris Drury and Ales Kotalik return to Buffalo, where they were once linemates. Ilkka Heikkinen debuts on defense. Erik Christensen debuts at center. Chad Johnson debuts as backup goalie. Rookie Artem Anisimov centers the No. 1 line.
Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal. Enver Lisin goes back in after being prucha’d last game. Aaron Voros gets prucha’d tonight. Donald Brashear (hand/wrist), Wade Redden (shoulder) and Brandon Dubinsky (hand) continue to sit out injured.
Enjoy the game. I’ll be right here with youse all night.
