Same lineup, except for Lundqvist back in goal and Gilroy goes back in for Del Zotto. McDonagh is the only prucha. Same lines to start.
The last game of the first half of the season, and the only home game in a stretch of six. So, it’s somewhat important. Also important for the Rangers to start winning consistently at home, and for them to play well against a fast team. And for them to play better than they have in the last few, especially the stinker in Florida.
Special guest in the house tonight: The Little Ball of Hate.
