The Rangers are hoping to have captain Ryan Callahan back after missing three games with a bruised foot suffered the last time the teams met, blocking a shot by Ilya Kovalchuk. He will be a game-time decision after warmups. Looks like Anton Stralman will be prucha’d along with Jeff Woywitka, and Steve Eminger goes back in on defense. If Callahan returns, John Scott will be prucha’d.
CORRECTION: Callahan is playing, Scott is playing, John Mitchell is prucha’d.
Ya boys are 4-0-1 in their last five (seems worse, doesn’t it, because of all the nit-picking?) and 13-3-3 in their last 19.
Henrik Lundqvist is 22-6-5 with a 1.72 GAA, .936 save percentage and five shutouts against Martin Brodeur.
Check out future Ranger Zach Parise tonight.
