No Marc Staal (knee), so Ryan McDonagh slides into the first pair with Dan Girardi and faces the fun task for a youngster: facing Alex Ovechkin (=Monster) every shift. Maybe Dubinsky can fight him again and get him off the ice for five minutes.
Lundqvist is in goal. Eminger is back in, and will play with Del Zotto. Sauer and Gilroy.
Ruslan Fedotenko returns to the lineup after his shoulder injury and appendectomy. So Kris Newbury was put on waivers for the purpose of sending him back to the Whale.
