[1]Game 68. [2]

Ya boys, on their first three-game (regulation) losing streak of the season … so this is a MUST-WIN! Right? ;)

The Rangers begin a seven-game homestand.

Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal.

Ryan Callahan (foot) and Michael Del Zotto (hip) are out. Brandon Dubinsky (sinus) hopes to return. Mats Zuccarello has been recalled from Connecticut (AHL). He will likely play on the PP (and in the case of a shootout, God forbid).

That would probably mean John Scott and Jeff Woywitka are prucha’d. The Isles have lost four of five.

PS, I will be a first-intermission guest on the radio (ESPN 1050-AM; or on the Rangers’ team site) with Dave Maloney or Kenny Albert. Please give us a listen.

Here’s the official word from the NYR on Zuccarello:
