Last game before the all-star break.
Josh Thomson, 26, is covering the game.
Ya boys, tied for first in the East with the Bruins, come off that huge win in Boston Saturday. They are 3-3 in their last six, alternating losses and wins, and 13-4 in their last 17 games.
Same lineup. Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal with call-up Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson as his backup because Martin Biron has the flu. Erik Christensen was also called up from Connecticut as his conditioning assignment ended. So Christensen and Wojtek Wolski will be prucha’d.
No byfuglien: Dustin Byfuglien is out with a knee injury.
