The Rangers are cold, the Devils are hot. So this is a big game anyway. But it’s bigger if you consider that the Rangers have lost five of their last eight, and that they go on a three-game trip after tonight: A matinee in Montreal Saturday, at Detroit Monday and at Atlanta next Friday.
Here’s the newer, healthier lineup:
The news first: Lundqvist in goal. Prospal to play LW with Gaborik and Stepan, Del Zotto on defense, Eminger prucha’d.
Gilroy- Del Zotto
Lundqvist in goal
Eminger is prucha’d.
