Ya boys on a one-game winning streak, 5-1 in their last six, 9-2-1 in their last 12, 21-6-1 in their last 28.
They are 2-1 against the Ice Birds, losing 4-1 at MSG on Jan. 19.
The Penguins — minus Sidney Crosby (update coming soon, no doubt) — have lost two of three. Their piece of clarke Matt Cooke skated this morning, though he’s nursing some sort of injury, the pile of carcillo. Brooks Orpik is out.
Ruslan Fedotenko is a game-time decision for the Rangers. Otherwise, either Stu Bickel or Wojtek Wolski will play, and the other will likely be prucha’d with Jeff Woywitka.
Henrik Lundqvist in goal. Did you know the Staals are related?
