Big game against the angry Pens, coming off a loss in Philly last night which ended their 12-game winning streak (their first loss since the Rangers beat them at the new Igloo a month earlier). So we get to see Sid the Skid, Malkin, Fleury and that piece of carcillo Cooke, who beat the Rangers at MSG Nov. 29.
Captain Drury returns, so Todd White and Matt Gilroy will be prucha’d. Derek Boogaard remains out with a shoulder injury. Vinny Prospal was sent home with the flu.
Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal (maybe Martin Biron tomorrow vs. the Desert Dogs?).
Drury/Christensen-Avery (Tortorella told reporters he’s not sure whether Christensen or Drury would play center).
